    Looks dripping! Not sure if they changed the carpet since the 04 MZ3 but the carpet inside is absolutely awful in regard to cleaning.

    Thanks! that S100 pairs really well with the high metallic-flake content of the Velocity Red paint, not to mention the UC is an awesome product.

    I think the carpet has been updated along with the rest of the upholstery.

    Rented an '08 Mazda3, had the same shit carpet as all the 1st gens do. Liked everything about the car but the carpet.

    Nice job on that velocity red paint. :)

    interesting, maybe the dealer put better carpets in mine :dunno: but they seem pretty decent. of course, they're black and I'm coming from a car with light blue carpet....
    thanks! the clear coat layer seems to be really hard, at least when comes to me trying to REMOVE swirls/scratches... but the UC did a nice job at cutting through some water spot etching and spiderwebs and then left a perfect finish; no need for a finer polish.
