The Mazda 5 is a vehicle that is a cross between an SUV, a estate car and a van. It is sporty and tailored for younger generations wanting a hip car that has room for cargo or kids. The Mazda 5 is referred to as the Premacy in Japan and has numerous aftermarket parts available for it. Most of the aftermarket parts available can be installed very quickly and don't require specialised tools.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Find wheels that would look nice on your Mazda 5. Wheels 16 inches in diameter fit perfectly in the Mazda 5's wheel well, but any wheel size ranging from 15 to 18 inches works. Make sure the bolt pattern, the width of the rims and the offset of the wheels are compatible when selecting replacement tires.

  2. 2

    Lower the Mazda 5 with lowering springs or coilovers. Lowering the Mazda 5 will lower its centre of gravity and make it handle better. Not only that but the wheel gap won't be as severe, giving it more of a sporty feel. Lowering springs provide much more in the way of ride comfort, but they can't be adjusted whereas coilovers can be adjusted to your preferable ride height, with the drawback of giving the vehicle an uncomfortable ride.

  3. 3

    Install a body kit on the Mazda 5. The body kit consists of body panels that enhance the aesthetic appeal of the car while maintaining the smooth lines it was designed with originally. There are numerous options from which to choose. Pick the body kit that works for you, and have it installed and painted professionally.

  4. 4

    Install an aftermarket stereo system since the stock system can only handle so much before the speakers give out as they are made of inferior materials compared to available aftermarket options.This will include a CD player, subwoofers, speakers and an amplifier.

  5. 5

    Install different tail lights, such as clear or carbon-fibre tail lights as this will add to the aesthetics of the vehicle.

  6. 6

    Install an aftermarket exhaust system on your Mazda 5. This will increase the car's performance with more horsepower via back pressure. There are many options available, such as Greddy and Tanabe.

  7. 7

    Tint the windows on your Mazda 5 to reduce UV radiation coming into the vehicle, increase privacy and enhance the styling of the vehicle.
