Repost of Mazda6 2.3L A-spec touring kit installed. Sorry for the delay. I had to find a place where i can do free image hosting.

Exhaust: HKS
Airfilter: HKS
Bodykit: Mazdaspeed A-spec Touring

Rear bumper was custom made. Rear a-spec apron was molded with my rear sports bumper. Haven't got much space to put in here, so I'll just post two low res pics.

The HKS Legamax is axle-back, depending on your preference really. I wanted to leave my exhaust noise between the 91db to 93db range, hence why I didn't go for catback. HKS also gives the option to include the catback system as well but it would cost you a bit extra. Concerning the sound, just imagine your stock exhaust, with a little bit more humm. It sounds cool on idle.

I just realized one thing though. When I was on the road, the top of my front tire kept hitting the area inside the fender at occasional bumps. It's never happened before. But I failed to put into account that the fiberglass front bumper would be more heavier than the sports bumper, hence I may have inadvertently dropped my front between 1 - 3 inch. If this was the case, I thought of replacing the front suspension back to stock (Im using H&R) and see if it would balance out.

Around USD1600. The rear apron fibreglass molding cost me an extra 200. I had a rear sports bumper and because of this it didn't fit the a-spec apron. I had a gap made on the front, just below my hood for aerodynamic purposes although when i thought of it now, it's pointless! LOL. But it still looked good.

The front Mazdaspeed emblem and the mazdaspeed carbon mirror came separately though.
