I've never been keen on that colour, or the sedan BA to be honest, but dang it if your car doesn't pull it off
I like it

Hi Fresh,

When I was living in Bathurst with our first Astina, and debadged it (that's it for coincidences), and found the two holes fixing that centre badge, I cut the 323ASTINA badge so just say ASTINA and stuck that over the two holes with double side auto tape. It was a lot less conspicuous that the round one.

I enjoy the old mazda badge, surprisingly not many people know it.

Installed my Nardi wheel the other day, bitch of job when you buy a cheap boss kit. Had to remove most of it to make it work and then the holes didn't even line up.... but after much swearing figured out a way around it.

So all of the sudden my car is idling real rough once it's warmed up, i'll be at the lights in neutral and the revs will drop down to 300 then back up 800 and then back down 200 etc...

Ideas on what the problem is?

Do these model astina's have coilpacks? Could be that.

Afm may be playing up, or cracked intake piping letting unmetered air in.
