    Hi there. My first post over here. I live in the Netherlands and have a Mazda 3 SkyActive G120. The G120 is a de-tuned version of the G165. Above about 4500 rpm throttle is electronically closed off a bit. I asked several tuners if they could tune my car. Some promise up to 180 hp (though I'm...

    Hi all, What is the general consensus on tuning chips? Are they worth the £300-400 to actually save fuel, but increase performance? Do they actually work and has anyone tested one on the 2014 Mazda 3 2.2d? They seem to suggest no trace would be found if removed so the manufacturer would never...

    So, I was browsing at Amazon the other day and this popped up... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WFIL8QK?psc=1 It says its a chip tune for both older and current Mazda 3's- all engines. Sounds too good to be true. And its cheap too. Anyone have this or have heard of this? I don't seem to be...

    I got a NAV chip from my dealer friend, as far as I know it hasn't been inserted into a car. I tried copying the files over on to an other SD card, it was a mirco SD 32GB chip, inserted into an adapter. When I tried putting it into my car it just said invalid SD card. I thought as much would...

    Asking because I don't know and Google didn't turn up much. Is there any anti chip coatings for the paint that are worthwhile? How much should I expect to spend on this? Been reading here that some are finding the paint on these cars isn't so good... Might be a worthwhile option while the car...
  7. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Yesterday I noticed a small paint chip on my hood (only a couple mm wide) down to the metal which has some rust on it. It's barely noticeable, and I don't wanna go crazy here trying to make it a perfect match, but I at least wanna try and touch it up so it's properly protected. I've read a...

    So I recently discovered a small chip in my windshield, passenger side and over two thirds of the way up the glass. It's barely an inch, if that. Should I ignore this or will it certain spider web? What about any reliable do-it-yourself kits? If I were to get this repaired how much do you think...

    Just bought a kit in Meteor Gray Mica. Should get it next week. I just noticed a chip on my bottom driver's door. Uggh, plus I have some road rash/chips on the front bumper. I drive pretty much all highway miles M-F, 100 miles round trip. Will post before and after pics. I used it on my...

  12. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'm still not happy with the paint quality with Jet Black thus far.. It really seems to eat it from everyday debris and random objects.. I keep seeing fine scratches showing up on a weekly basis on areas like the rear fenders, door trims and obviously the hood, but they are always several inches...

    As the title says. My car is jet black so the chip has revealed the white under the paint. The car is 2 and a half months old, do you guys think it is too late to have the dealer fix it? If they can? This is my first car all by myself so I don't know really how this works.
  14. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So I have a small chip on the hood that I noticed today. Car doesn't even have 1000 miles on it yet, so irritated. I've got a bottle of touch up paint that my dealer included with the car. Never used this stuff before because all of my other vehicles had so little paint that a touch up bottle...

    So I just noticed that there's a large stone chip on my hood. What do you guys normally do to repair this sort of thing. I've never cared this much about a car before. I can't let this stay:mad 1:
