  1. Vinyl wrap side mirrors...any success?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Appearance & Interior
    Here are some pictures. Mirrors wrapped in a color by 3m called "Vampire Satin Red." It Matches the red interior almost exactly, and sets off the tail lights in a way I like as well. You can see the split between the 2 pieces. A few minor wrinkles, but not enough to notice unless you're...
  2. Continuing the Chrome-delete Quest

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    It's just vinyl pinstriping. I love the front chinspoiler, but with the car so dark, the definition of it gets a little lost I think. Having the stripe grounds the car in the front a bit more, imo. I did the same to the side rocker panels. And you're correct, I cut some retro mazda logos...

  5. 19 GS Rattling?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    This happened to me, too! I thought for sure I had the glove-box issue (hasn't happened yet) as a rattle showed up after a recent trip that hadn't been there before. Turns out, the wife had left a pair of sunglasses in the compartment that I didn't realize were there. Took them out and no...

  7. Distracting windscreen reflection from HUD?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Easiest fix, right here! :) If it's sunny enough that I'm noticing reflections, I'm usually in the sunglasses anyway.
  8. Adaptive cruise (ACC) (rapid aggressive braking, sluggish acceleration)

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    This is finally how I got it to cooperate with me as well. I find that idiots who cut in to merge lanes in front of you when there really isn't space is the most annoying, as if you're not quick enough on the cancel button, the brakes really jolt you. In general though, it's quite manageable...
  9. Adaptive cruise (ACC) (rapid aggressive braking, sluggish acceleration)

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Yes, it does. When you turn off ACC and activate cruise control, it works as a standard cruise control does. I tend to do this when the ACC annoys me.
  10. Window Visors, Vinyl Striping, Roof Racks, 19" Wheels, Roof Blackout etc

    2019+ Mazda 3 Appearance & Interior
    Obviously not the OP, but...I vinyl wrapped the chrome window-trim for my chrome delete. And I love the Mazda window deflectors. Not noise with windows up or down, in my experience.

    Haha! Thanks. If they wanted to pay me, I mean, I wouldn't say no. lol
  12. Mazda Side Window Deflectors

    2019+ Mazda 3 Appearance & Interior
    I haven’t noticed it to be detrimental but I guess everyone’s opinions on what loud is is different. No complaints. Nope. I mean, they’re smoked so it IS like looking through a tinted window, but I don’t find them a hinderance at all.
  13. Mazda Side Window Deflectors

    2019+ Mazda 3 Appearance & Interior
    Love them. Install was simple. Directions included in the box and straightforward. No rattles. Not too bad to wash under when washing the glass. I roll the windows down when I’m done to access the back from through the door. Pricey, but I’m happy.
