    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The factory unit can be paused as well with the big round knob in the center of the dash.... Cardinale Way Mazda in Arizona has unit and wiring harness for nice price and you can do the install yourself....the factory instructions make it seem WAY harder than it is....the hardest part is...
  2. F*ckin kids!

    Chasing them or threatening with a firearm would definitely be EXTREMELY foolish on your part....if they are injured in any way (even if you never touch them) or you point the gun at them you would be held liable since they can claim they feared for their lives. Follow them at a safe distance...

  4. Got this letter from my dealer

    If you're upside down on your current vehicle loan, the dealer is going to pass that cost on to YOU in the new financing package....I can guarantee you that ! I got the same letter and a phone call....I challenged the guy to show me on a sales contract in writing how he could 'get me into a new...

  9. Clutch issues

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Had to replace mine @ 30,000......I've owned manual-transmission vehicles for some 40 years now, and NEVER had to replace a clutch before.....I really don't think the OEM clutch is up to the torque of the 2.5L but I'm not an automotive engineer....just an experienced user....
  10. Ashtray wtf

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Don't they still sell those things that look like a travel mug and fit a cupholder but have a conical hole in the top for the ashes and butts ? All the smokers on my traveling crew used them so they wouldn't have to clean out the truck ashtrays......
  11. Gutting the spare tire in exchange for shallow mount sub

    Caveat: This may not be the time of year for this mod for those in cold climates.....might encounter cold-start/run problems......anyone south of Valdosta, Ga is probably safe.....
