Not going to do anything extreme. I'm also hoping for others ideas, suggestions and experiences.

I had the OEM Rubber Floor Mats, Cargo Tray and Chrome door sills added before taking delivery of the car. When I got the car home a full paint correction was done.

Have since added Window Tint and a full front end Clear Bra.

First Pic is stock - no window tint
Second - with tint and clear bra. No, you can't see the clear bra unless you're 6" away "looking" for it.

Wish I could get a picture to attach that is full size instead of a thumbnail.

Thanks to Byakuya, no more thumb nails.

Use a picture hosting website such as Imgur, then grab those URLs and put them into your post with the IMG tag and they'll display full sized

Looks good so far - gatta start somewhere

Tanabe Coils and Strut tower bar are on the way. Expect to have them installed within about 10 days. They don't make a anti sway bar for the rear so looking for another option.

As of now Ultra Racing looks to be the best choice. Rather than the rear sway bar I'm thinking about doing the rear lower https://ultraracing-usa.com/mazda-6-...ower-2-points/ instead as I still want to keep some "comfort" but thinking the rear lower will tighten it up a bit. If you order from them today 5-29-18 they have 20% discount.

To full rear anti sway bar or not..... anyone with any opinion/insight?

Can you please post up a link to the pedal covers and the mud flaps? The mud flaps are not OEM, correct?

I got the link from this site. Pretty sure it was Chazzy J that posted it but after just spending the last 20 minutes looking for it I can't find it. I'm going to send him a PM and see if he'll post the link here.

Yes, the mud flaps (splash guards) are OEM.

Are the mudflaps the same versions as previous years? I wonder why Mazda didn't list them as an accessory when you build an 18 on the website. I can't see how they wouldnt be the same as what was offered on years 15-17.

I hope they're right as I specifically clicked on 2018 when it asked you to choose the year. I even double checked. 2018

They don't or at least didn't use to show the pedals either and I'm quite sure tinkerguy has a set already.

Thanks.

I did find the pedals also.

I'm just a little leery getting accessories when half the Mazda sites don't even list the '18s as an option yet...
