  1. 2019 Exterior Colors. Disappointed?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I'm a bit disappointed in the limited selection of exterior colors offered on the 2019 Mazda 3 models. In my own opinion, I didn't care for the gray mica that I saw at a car show; the metallic grey, blue, and black are too dark for me. I've had several Mazda red cars so I am ready for a...

  6. New colors for '17's?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Please let there be new colors. I was at the dealer this morning and Mazda's really fallen into the German trap of ten shades of grey and a red. I'd love to see a real red again, but assume we're stuck with Soul for another five years at least since their one CX9 was Soul Red. Some actual...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So over the past week or so I've been photoshopping the crap out of the Mazda Connect infotainment system and I'm in love with it. I've created my own Blue Theme for the system (you can see it here) and someone asked if I could upload it. I went ahead and decided to be super nice and go back...

    Need to know what wires coming out of the infotainment system are for the front two speakers for my subwoofer install. I have the 2014 service manual from whoever posted it, but all the pages with the wiring diagrams are blank. I also have a feeling that the wiring may have changed slightly...
