  5. New Alpine ILX-107 may be what we have been waiting for

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    https://www.crutchfield.com/S-BLw7m7WfEvl/p_500ILX107/Alpine-iLX-107.html Looking at the shape of the unit, if the cavity behind our radio can fit a single din radio, someone like metra could make a cavity that covers the metal bit of the top of the alpine and leaves us with an aftermarket...

    So after three days of installing my new headunit (never done this before) I'm down to the last wire. Does anyone know what color the footbrake wire is and where I can find it? I tried the forum search and Google but I can't find it. I'm assuming it's attached to the pedal itself.
