My plans are currently stagnating. My Mazda has not arrived of repair.
Plans remain the same. GT spoiler or a spoiler with 3rd stop light (probably from MadazInBris)
GT seats (if they are available)
electric mirrors (now are manual)
And Laguna bumper conversion
... That is all for now...


I didn't buy. I was late about 10 minutes to buy. I made a trip of 150 km in one direction for nothing. Not to be confused, Dad was supposed to finance a car after the current employer has not paid a salary. I returned the money the same day because I did not bought the car.


10 minutes to late what a shame and traveling 150 km thats not good. I guess everything happens for a reason.
I would like a 3rd stop light in my spoiler too ( Madazinbris) can you get me one please that would be great.
I sold my spare gt seats and spare gt engine to Gaznoz
The Laguna front spoiler lip was one of the first mods i did to my car looks great
i do have a gt spoiler off my old gt precat ( only come in black ).

Yeah. It's shame. Mostly because I called the man for the car and asked him. It was agreed, but he sold the first one encountered. Perhaps a reason to wait for a better opportunity.

I will found some seats from GT... I must have it!!!
Laguna bumper conversion is necessarily... :lol:

I have a question!
Can someone explain the pre-cat and cat versions of the Mazda 323F BG? :oops:
So all in detail.
I tried to look, but I could not find anything. :cry:
I know that's a shame. But behold, I have to ask and to know it.

With leaded petrol the lead provided lubrication in the cylinder walls & valve stems
With unleaded fuel Benzene is produced (a harmful carcinogenic)
The catalytic convertor removes the harmful chemical elements.
Cats have been in use since around 1976 in the USA

So Stjephan what is your actual Q referring to ?

I don't think the engines are the same actually, the compression ratio is different.
If you look on top of the gearbox there should be a solenoid with 3 big adjusting screws, if it has this then you have a pre-cat. :wink:

Power was 140 or 129, torque was the same, and 0 - 60 was the same.

Cat model had a different mirror switch, it was on the door switch.

Cat model had different patterned seats.

Different wheels.

GT sticker on one side and DOHC 16valve on the other.

Flame badge is cat model.

Rear spoiler should be black on a pre cat.


It refers to the external appearance of the car, the equipment of the car.
As Nail wrote.
That's how it seems to me there is a difference in whether the cat or pre-cat.
Bold text is the one about which I ask.
I would like that someone write a brief full equipment of each of the Mazda 323F BG.

There were quite a few differences, do let us know what area in particular you are after, then we can help better.
In the UK the facelift happened in about May 1991. Adding a cat was the distinctive change, leading on to lots of related changes, e.g. fuel injection instead of carb, new colours, the auto (on the 1.6) became 4-speed not 3-speed; in addition to all the items mentioned above by other posters.
Somewhere in my archives I have brochures of both.

Don't forget that there's versions in Europe & Japan vs the rest of the World !!
I've been through all of this before with 71-77 ET LT ST GT & GTV Celica models.
I'm a damn good typist & brilliant on the Net but an open ended Q is hard to answer... :roll:

Hi Guys, I'm breaking a 1993 BG. I've got the spares I need from it for mine, but now have 99% of the car left. It's too far gone to get back on road but if anyone needs any parts please contact me

I've just seen this, Stjepan - I'm so sorry.

This weekend I went to a beer festival the night before Japfest. But I didn't drive, and only drank 2, so I was 100% sober before I drove to the show the next morning.

It's never worth even the tiniest risk :(

They just didn't want to wait... They just had to drive inside the limit (70km/h) and nothing would have happened... But as everyone says:
"Alcohol and steering wheel don't go together!"
