Movies and video games are influential on a person’s hobbies and interest without you even knowing it. It can transform a child growing up, who thinks its all just purely for entertainment into a way of life in your adult years. This is how Mateusz Chudy Grochal from Krakow, Poland got into cars, and eventually his Sunlight Silver Metallic 2005 Mazda 3 1.6 diesel.
Chudy remembers always being into cars since his first word as a baby was “car.” But, it wasn’t until he watched a French movie from 1998 called “Taxi,” which made him fall in love with modified cars. This and Need For Speed is how it all started for Chudy to become obsessed with modified cars.
Chudy chose the Mazda 3 because he was searching for a Japanese car that was different than the majority of cars on the streets of Poland, and Mazda was pretty unique in the 2000s in Poland as there were no official Mazda dealers. This lead him to importing the car from Germany choosing the 1.6 diesel variant in the exclusive sport version.
After owning it for a couple of years and modifying the car it has made a great first impression thanks to its overall body lines combined with the ATH-Hinberger styling package, which has become such a neck breaker.
The wheel wells got nicely filled with Blitz Technospeed Z1 wheels straight from Japan with the specs being 19×9 all around with 3″ and 4″ lips. The suspension is a custom air ride setup made by Czes?aw Customizer based on a Weitec Hicon GT coilover kit with short front shocks and James Baron Racing rear camber arms.
Chudy always wanted a Mazdaspeed 3, but it was too expensive back in the day. However, due to unfortunate events for one of my friends from New Jersey, he was able to get the full interior, rear spoiler, and the exhaust. This was like the icing on the cake for him as these added a lot of sporty character to the car.
