SURE motorsports is a big time player in the Mazdaspeed community. If it's their direct store, you will be fine... Otherwise you can go directly to their website as well.

Other people are JBarone Racing and CP-e. As someone has also mentioned in this thread, if you get an OEM mazda mount, you can also buy the corksport inserts.

As long as we're stealing things from the MS3... I was starting to wonder if these would work with our application as well.

I see ours are definitely rubber and I don't believe Steeda's STS includes these.

Ah, I believe you're correct.

I doubt it, but you never know... I believe a lot from the chassis and exhaust will work or can be adapted.

I am thinking of getting an even bigger rear bar than my Steeda. There are a lot of options for the MS3 and it looks like a direct fit...

Matt, what is that mount off of? None of the stock ones on ebay for a mazdaspeed3 look like that one.

The aftermarket replacements are a regular 3 mount from what I have seen. The regular 3 has 3 open areas in he rubber. The MS3 has 2. They are selling the wrong mount.

I got a factory Mazda MS3 mount. 2011 model. Any year should work just fine. This one looks just like the one I had on my 2008 model.

If you look at my mount you will see that the top is solid rubber. That is the MS3 mount. The regular 3 has an extra slot at the top and the bottom is the same as the MS3. 3 slots vs 2.
