there are about 10 people who post regularly on here from the uk.

a few from scotland with modified rides. then a few people in England. Havn't heard bout anyone from ireland apart from you posting. Though i seen a pic of a modified one from ireland.

You can find a few parts> but not much at all on ebay + they are expensive from there. Other than that there is sweet FA! there is a company called evo performance who can get you pak kits from austria but you are better just ordering straight from pakfifer in austria in my experience.

There are very few modified mx3's as they are so expensive to modify in the UK I think Alibath's is the most modified and that's just got a pak kit on and nos and stuff

did the usual under the bonnet, induction and plugs. mazda speed exhaust out the back. apart from that not much yet. got some clear front bumper lights from ebay look really well and cost half they would in ireland. wheels next but haven't made up my mind yet. already sitting on 16's (prev owner) look okay but he sprayed them himself so need to be refurbeb. having probs with the fogs, they won't work. bulbs good and fuses good but just no go on the light.

It may be the switch, or loose wire. When I had my old Clio I almost took the dam thing appart to find it was only the switch.

What Induction Kit are you using?

Hi lads! I'm a new owner living in Dublin (formerly in the UK).
I take "delivery" of a '93 V6 in Black in November (when its current owner goes travelling around the world). :D

Exterior is a bit tatty, but I think it will clean up pretty good.
67K on the clock, but no serivce history. Engine runs smoothly, but I'll probably get a preventative cam-belt change done ASAP.

Will definitely welcome advice on mods and maintenance, and sourcing bits in Ireland.

Post UK Members website at last!
:D At Last, It’s what all UK Mazda; Eunos Mx-3 Owners have been waiting for! :D

The first official UK Based Mx-3 website purely for UK owners only.This site will be the basis of a collection of registered UK owners including Members images and locations and will eventually host a forum where UK members can chat about mx-3 mods, spec’s, sightings etc. Once we gain enough members we can start arranging the first official UK-Mx-3 group meet!

Best of all, It will be free to register! At the moment this site is under construction, but in the next few weeks will soon be live!

Check it out at http://www.uk-mx3.com

Please Note this is in no way affliated with the best US based website http://www.mx-3.com!
