Default I did it!

I finally put in my sri and had no problem whatsoever other than a very rusty bolt which is now stuck in my socket wrench lol.
I started it up a few hors after i put it in and let it sit 10 minutes and rev'd the engine and it sounds so great!
And i didnt get any CEL so far with the ebay intake im not sure if it takes a little for a CEL to pop up or not but im proud of myself because i have next to no mechanical ability whatsoever haha

Im not sure. :[

I have to get my rear defroster fixed because my inspection is due in febuary and my stereo buttons dont work i have to use the steering wheel kinda makes me mad but it was only 1 of 2 mazda6's in my area that was first gen for sale.
But i will listen to you guys and just do whatever you all think would be the next best thing to start on because it was more fun than i expected haha.
I would love to get the car lowered but i might wait until after this winter snow off lake erie can be a bitch!

If you get some coilovers and slam it to the ground your car can moonlight as a snow plow. Well once you take care of your other maintenance issues I would write up a quick list of priority and budget. Then poke around the fourms and see what other people are doing and go from there. Good luck.

Things like removing door guards, swapping 194 bulbs to LED's, putting in a different grille & painting stuff are all easy & fairly cheap things which are good places to start.

I have replaced the license plate bulbs already im going to probly do the enterier lighting this week sometime and ive been looking at different grille's but im not sure what i want i wanted black honeycomb at first but im not sure if i like it anymore and i want to make the evil "M" like you have but i dont even know how to get that off, let alone the stupid dealer logo on the back of the car. I plan on getting rid of the door gaurds i read in a post you said before about removing them, they are pointless anyways ive had the car for two months and have 3 dings from other cars on my doors already lol.
