Brown - Bargain Budget Project!



  • not the se thing again. lol (have a look about what i mean in previous post) also that dizzy looks excatly the same as mine.



  • well my cars got a difrent inlet and dizy
    mine a 95 plate but made in 93



  • not saying yours not an se at all. just saying mine looks excatly the same as the pic. from what i can work out. the main SE is classed as being white and leather interior. of which mazda has confirmed to me there were only around 100 white ones made.

    however when i asked them to check what mine was as i was getting confused by the dooe infomation they confirmed that there was a number of green and other colour SE's made with the same engine that puts out 143bhp bucket seats etc but not including leather. as the white ones have (around 93-94 plates). thus they said this is why most people think that the white with leather are the only form of SE because there is alot less of them made in production. when there are other forms of SE hope that made sense

    following that no matter what mine is its just being used as an A to B for 9 months now as starting to look for something else. considering a RX7



  • mines not well dont think so its white but no lether in there
    not to botherd ever coz im going malana turbo with around 320 bhp lol
    think my red one i striped was an se felt more powerful untill it went round a conren and mucked up was blase red and there are blase red ses about



  • Straight of Wikipedia:

    Special Editions

    In 1993, Mazda Canada offered a limited Special Edition model of its Mazda MX-3 GS to celebrate the company's 25th year in Canada. At the same time, Mazda USA offered a similar model as a Special Edition as well. Only a total of 2,000 Special Edition models were supposedly made. The special edition MX-3 featured the V6 engine, leather interior (including seats, steering wheel and shift knob), heated seats (Canada only), and custom Enkei manufactured 15 inch alloy wheels. Most special edition models came in the color Raspberry Metallic; however, there were also Blaze Red, Brilliant Black, and Laguna Blue colors available for the Special Edition.

    In 1996, Mazda Europe produced 100 Mazda MX-3 V6 SEs. These had a leather and suede interior, and all had the Clear White body colour. There were also a limited number of Mazda MX-3 V6 Equipes, with Sparkle Green Metallic or Noble Green exteriors.

    So am i right in presuming the white SE has 143bhp?



  • yep SE's have 143 bhp. and as lee said bout other mx3's SE's i driven an 96 mx3 and that had less power from what i felt to mine also. think the SE in other colours were used as like a test for the white versons etc



  • Heres some photos after a gd clean and polish!

    Looks alot nicer after a clean! I'm amazed at how the seats have come up.



  • I really like ya seats, ya did a good job :)



  • wow that is my favorite interior! nice!

    but what happened near the fuel tank door? did you run into something?



  • i am really gathering some money to change my Noble Green MX3, to a white MX3 8)
    I think our car is awesome in white :oops:



  • looks really nice, i had the chance to buy an SE, but it was a piece of shite….

    i want them seats..... lol

    how did u clean your seats?



  • Cleaned up really easy with cheap interior valet spray, brush and cloth!
    Going to get some leather treatment for it too.

    Cars started being a bit hesitant on starting, what could be the problem?
    Once the starters going, it starts going but hesitantly and then kind of builds up and starts properly!



  • Possible low battery voltage or the starter solonoid is sticking and drawing power but not releasing the starter.

    I would check battery voltage first.. :!:



  • well the starting issue has solved itself!
    But I have got another problem :? One that could be abit more of an issue!

    The gearstick is literally falling out of the bottom of the car. It then sits on top of the exhaust. But it you pull it up hard it then return to the original and correct position.
    I think the two rubber L shape mounty things inside the gaitor have worn. Can I replace them - should there be four of the little rubber things?



  • grate time to replace it with a short shift kit



  • The car is now for sale at 700 ono. Its all mechanically sound and has 10 months Tax and is a really nice drive



  • dont fancy part ex on the interiour ?



  • that depends on the £££ offer



  • you would have to tell me how much it would take so i could save up



  • in was drawing comparisons with my white MX till i saw your seats! I want them badly!

    nice ride
