The impact a car has on our lives is an adventurous tale. It can be a journey of knowledge, experience, happiness, or even filled with misfortune. Nevertheless, we still pursue our passions till the end. Such a tale can be seen with Trevor Hartman’s 2007 Grey Mazdaspeed 3 from Brampton, Ontario. This is a follow up feature as seen on Stance Is Everything.
Trevor’s adventure with his MS3 was similar to most until the motor blew up on him, which got rebuilt. Once that happened, Trevor got the outside and inside rejuvenated in a different type of way.
Unlike most people looking to fit aggressive wheels with universal ZG fender flares riveted on their cars to give them that affordable wide body appearance; Trevor decided to mold the fender flares to the rear quarter panels, and widen the front fenders.
The molded fender flares in the rear give Trevor’s car a different kind of appearance when compared to the bolt on universal ZG fender flares seen on other cars. In addition, the victory blast pipes with welded bends also adds a different style and mood for the rear end.
The suspension is set to Standard Suspension coilovers to give Trevor his desired height, which is also a major presence changer for any car.
Trevor’s front fenders were subtly widened; trying to keep the stock body line. This all resulted in Trevor being able to fit Koning SSM wheels in 18×10 +15 all around with 25mm spacers in the rear, and give an aggressive appearance to the overall car.
Look at the modification list below for a complete list of parts used throughout the car.

Trevor’s build is definitely a different adventure most would not take. We know not everyone will like it or appreciate that work that went into it. But, for those that can appreciate anything automotive…we love you for that. So, thank you to Dave at Stance Is Everything for letting us share Trevor’s build with his photography, and Drake Nolte for the additional photography. There are a lot more photos in the gallery below and the additional feature on Stance Is Everything. Check it.
