  1. Radio Upgrade Options?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have a 2015 Mazda3 Grand Touring with the touchscreen radio. I've installed the AIO tweaks and whatnot and have had a fairly good experience. The only gripe is the speed of the unit and the constant crashing and reboots. I'm looking into aftermarket replacements and haven't had much luck...
  2. Aftermarket Exhaust

    2019+ Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I realize probably nothing out yet for our cars since they changed the rear setup on the 2019s. I'm considering a Racing Beat exhaust though when they do come out with one for the 2019s. I was wondering what exhaust the rest of you are looking at and why. I've had Borla on my BMW and Integra...
  3. Aftermarket Head Unit Recos

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    So my 2005 Mazda 3 is still running strong and still on the factory radio. I have way too many doohickeys now crowding my windshield that I think there should be a head unit out there where I can consolidate everything. I'm surprised I haven't been pulled over by a cop citing me for...

  5. Wiring diagram for aftermarket alarm?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey guys, I recently purchased a Viper (3606V) alarm system for my 2018 GT hatchback. After doing extensive searching, I've had no luck in finding any wiring diagrams related to the factory alarm or other components. I'm quite experienced with wiring when it comes to vehicles. I would like to...
  6. Any Aftermarket Mass Airflow Sensor Recommendations

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I just updated to custom CAI 2 days ago. I've seen a noticeable improvement in performance and GPM. Is there any Mass Airflow Performance Sensor to get the most of the mod. I've been looking here and there but I haven't found any. My ride is a 2015-3
  7. Aftermarket backup camera issues

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, this is my first post to the forum so just saying hello. I'm having issues with an aftermarket backup camera I've installed. The camera is powered by the ACC line via a fuse tap and the camera does get detected by the screen. However, the image is black and white and scrolls up/down. It...
  8. Radio, all mids and lows disappeared, stock and aftermarket radio

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    First off, please don't respond with how much or little bass the factory radio and speakers have. My issue is that the mids and low end of sound started cutting out and then completely disappeared from audio. The stereo sounds like its playing through headphones. All speakers are working, but...
  9. aftermarket air filters

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I saw youtube videos saying these are bad for engines since it allows more contaminants to get inside.. one guy showed damages(scratches) on his (motorcycle) pistons for using aftermarket filters and by not using filters at all. Another video I saw from a different user was he sent his oil for...
  10. Aftermarket Radio/Nav System

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys, Anyone know of some aftermarket Radios/Navigtion System that would replace the screen in the 2015 Mazda 3 i SV? Im looking to switching out the radio but all i can find is chinese knock offs. Was wondering if anyone has a list or something of radios that work with the car.
  11. Aftermarket Head unit

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Does anyone bought one of these head units? I think they are the same. They seems can be replaced on higher trim models. Can they access the car's factory features settings like Bose audio, HUD, headlight, auto wiper, ... I see a lot of aftermarket HUs what can handle these factory settings in...
  12. Aftermarket wheel specs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I found some wheels I like and was wondering if these specs would work. I have a 2014 i sport with 16in wheels. Here are the specs: Size: 18 x 8 Bolt Pattern: 5x114.3 Offset: 40 Hub: 72.60 Thanks.
  13. Aftermarket Subwoofer

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey, just bought a 2018 mazda 3 sedan and was wondering if there's anyway if adding an aftermarket sub. Also wondering if doing that would void the warranty somehow. Had a 2006 mazda 3 with twin 12" subs in the trunk and would like to put them in this car.
  14. My aftermarket unit does not support trip computer?

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    Hello! I had my Mazda 3 2007 (1.6 diesel) model for 6 months now and I recently tried to enable the trip computer as the car didn't had it available when I got it. My problem is that the aftermarket navigation unit it has (QL-MZD501) is missing the buttons required to activate the trip...
  15. Aftermarket Aero - Paint? Durability?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So I would never spend 1500 on the OEM kit (my car was $7.5K and the kit is just some plastic), even the aftermarket parts are pricey IMO (my accord OEM styled front lip was $30 lol). It seems like no one puts them on without painting first? Anyone have input on how durable the paint is? I would...
  16. 2012 Mazda 3 I Skyactiv CV Half-Shaft. Cannot find aftermarket replacement

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I cannot find an aftermarket CV half shaft. AutoZone, Oreillys etc. do not have a replacement. All the details have excluding SkyActiv. VIN 8th digit is “8” The OEM part # is FTA32560x for about $325. Is the factory part my only option? Anyone experience the same issue? :frown2:

    Hi guys! I recently bought a 2005 Mazda 3 (1.6L petrol engine) which came with central locking through key but not with keyless entry and I want to add an aftermarket solution to the car. I am struggling to find the correct wires to hook up the aftermarket keyless entry unit. So far I managed...
  18. No experience with aftermarket audio, what do you think of my build?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, I just bought my 2nd mazda, a 2015 mazda 3 sedan with the base (not bose :wink2:) radio, no touchscreen either. I want to upgrade the whole audio system. I don't know much about audio but I used to be a mechanic, so at least I'm comfortable with removing trim I'd like some input on...
  19. Any aftermarket companies supplying to 2nd gen skyactivs

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm still fairly new but I would like to get into getting an exhaust or headers or coilovers. Any recommendations, some links and names would be nice to a company or part suppliers for the second gen skyactiv.
  20. Lighting issues after aftermarket head unit installation

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    I recently purchased and installed a Regetek 7" Touchscreen head unit in my 2004 Mazda 3 GT sedan. I used the Metra 70-7903 wiring harness (sorry, I can't post links yet, but both products are on Amazon, bear with me please). The head unit itself works fine, however after the installation, I...
