Yes. Very easy, there is a how to.

http://www.mazdas247.com/forum/showthread.php?t=123698529

I did not replace all the bulbs in the how-to. I did not replace the glove box light which involves panel and glove box removal.
I only did maps, dome, trunk and tag lights. $30 shipped. If you want to go rice they have colored lights, turn your car into a disco.
I bought the cool white which is the most expensive option and they have a slight blue hue to them which for me was perfect. It takes 20 minutes tops. When reinstalling your tag lights be careful to clip them back in snug. When I clipped mine back in one was loose and moved around where the other was solid. I realized after pulling it back out and looking at it that it needs to be pushed in at the right angle for the back to clip or slide into a slot properly before the snaps are set or it will be loose. It's hard to describe but I figured it out so others should be able to as well. Just remember when you reinstall the tag lights that they should be snug with no movement. Before removing the trunk light, place a piece of tape over the hole under the bulb. Many people have dropped the stock bulb down the hole while trying to remove it.  In the picture below you can see the part #s that I bought and where I bought them from.

No it's cool.

I just got the DaBears2K kit, he actually included an extra one for the meet I think. I'll have to check but I'm pretty sure I saw two bags and I assume everything i needed was in just one of them... It's been so freaking cold I've been too lazy to put them in!!! I WANT A GARAGE! At least it was only -2 and not -40 like it would have been if I still lived in VT lol


I plan on getting drunk as a skunk and dry hump a large stuffed animal.

I'm waiting for the Cobb turbo inlet to go with my Cobb intake. It's suppose to go on sale Jan.30Th, no price yet but I'm there. I'm also waiting on a group buy on boost tubes with T-bolt clamps on another forum. I already have one step colder plugs waiting to go in when I take off the IC to install the boost tubes. My car is Cosmic blue and my engine theme is going blue also. Cobb sri, Cobb turbo inlet, Boost tubes and rec. hose are all going blue. I want to buy some blue silicone vac hoses but I'm not sure what sizes to get yet. I'll have to start researching this or maybe someone could direct me as to the sizes I need.

950 from taxes... what do you think i should do, these are the three options i'm considering

Option one all new. ETS 3.5 tmic upgraded, TRZ engine and tranny mount combo and forge BPV

Option 2: used Sb and PNP and New forged BPV or upgraded mounts

Option 3: be like everyone else in america and horde my money and give no chance for the economy to turn around...

yeah I'm not gonna do option three but just venting with option 3

oh current mods are CS test pipe(installed) cs dp(uninstalled), and msd dashawk +PG intake in the mail

Indy Fogs

 I just successfully did the Independent (Indy) fog light Mod on my Speed 3. I used a nice how-to on another forum. It's easier than I thought it would be and the hardest part is lying on the floorboard with a poor angle at the wiring harnesses. The how-to suggested to remove the glove box if you need to have more room. I would probably do that if I had to do it again.

I have emailed them multiple times about their exhaust trying to get lengths and what not but never got anything back from them.  Kind of a shitty deal if you ask me.  I doubt I'll order from them since they are somewhat local.  I would go there and ask them but they are not open on weekends.
