2003 Mazda Protege5 (Protege5)

Found it! '03 Protege5 from ForceFed on the Mazdas247 forums. It was his project car that he decided not to finish. Here's the rundown:

  • Fully repainted, body is mint.
  • MSP front bumper(no bumper marker lights)
  • MSP headlights
  • MSP front swaybar
  • JDM taillights
  • Full car minus engine and transmission - just the way I wanted it!
  • A slew of new Mazda parts inside and out, not sure why though

The car has 80,980 miles. The previous owner(previous to ForceFed that is) didn't take care of it at all, ran it out of oil, dings and dents galore, scratched interior panels, smoked in it, etc etc. Luckily with all of ForceFed's effort, the car is a very nice starting point for me.

It's a base 5 speed car with the ABS/side airbags package, MSRP was $17,645(I even have the window sticker for it).

Picked it up Sunday Oct. 19th, 2008, 4 years and 1 day after buying my '94 Protege.(nice coincidence)

Factory Options

  • Leather Protege5 seats(my brother has these too)
  • Ground Control coilovers
  • Protege MP3 Tokico shocks(have 2 fronts and 4 rears)
  • Protege MP3 rear swaybar(and subframe)(have em)
  • Greddy SP2 Protege5 Catback exhaust(have this!)
