    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hey everyone! Reporting in from Austin. I just got a red '17 Mazda 3 2.5L Grand Touring Automatic, so I thought I should join the forums. This is the family car, but even so, I felt like it would be a good combination of utility and fun, hence the purchase. Also I seem to have a thing with the...
  2. Hello from Austin!

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    New to Mazda and to the forums. Got my 3 at the end of January and love every minute of ownership so far. This is my first time buying a car and I can't believe the value of this vehicle. Coming from a 2008 Subaru that up and died on me, I have to say the 3 is almost as fun to drive and probably...

  4. Halo install, austin TX area

    2004-2009 Mazda3Appearance & Interior
    I'm posting here as I haven't been able to find a reliable shop to get some halo's I purchased installed (other than the one place in town asking 600+ for installing, and tells me itll take a week or more). If there's anyone in the Austin, TX area that would be able to install some LED concepts...

  13. Hello From Austin, TX

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    I can't remember if I formally introduced myself to the forums, but I thought I would definitely do that now. I purchased my 2010 2.5 s hatch in at the beginning of June '13 and I love it so far. I was driving a CRZ at the time, which I owned for about 6 months prior to trading in for my 3...
  14. Hello from Austin

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    I got sick of paying 20-30 bucks per day in gas for my V8 pickup and in looking for a car I could actually get down with I began falling in love with the Mazda 3 and Speed3 hatchbacks around town. Test drove a 2013 MS3 and didn't feel like I was doing myself a service in the economy dept...

    Hello everyone, just joined a few minutes ago. I've had my 2010 3 iSport for over a year and just came across this forum. I initially bought the car with no intentions of modding so I did my best to stay from forums to avoid the temptation of modding. Well, it appears as though my inablility...
