    Are these seats worth anything? I'd let them go for cheap/free if someone could come and get them. I have a set of iTouring premium cloth seats. Great condition -- I just switched out to leather and an auto climate control bezel and controls. I'm in Durham, North Carolina.

    I'm trying to figure out how the bass and treble in our MZD are controlled.

  11. Bluetooth controls not working

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Bluetooth seems to work fine with my infotainment system, including the resume when restarting the car feature. However, the controls to pause/skin/rewind do not work at all. Also it displays the track length, but it never updates it (it just sits there at 0 of 2.37 minutes or whatever). I...

  15. Keep iPhone controls w/ Infotainment?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm a prospective '14 Mazda 3 GT buyer, and I'm primarily interested in the upgraded speaker part of the package. I'd rather continue doing all my audio playback and navigation through the phone itself than through the proprietary (and from the sound of it buggy) Infotainment interface. So my...
  16. Wearing steering wheel audio controls..

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Anyone else's steering wheel audio controls wearing off? The black plastic paint is wearing off of my volume control. Dealer says it isn't covered by warranty because it's a "wear and tear" item. Just curious to see if it really is a common problem because my friend's 2010 is doing the same...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    More CF vinyl wrapping done today, I didn't remove the controls, I left it on there and just applied it. It wasn't hard at all, probably not worth the effort removing the controls but for the silver pieces I would recommend it. I actually like the silver so I left it alone. Enjoy!

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Just finished putting in an Alpine INE-S920HD with the PAC SWI-RC for the steering wheel controls & PAC TR-7 for the video bypass. With the SWI-RC, you can program the audio/phone buttons on the wheel. (So long as the radio you have supports steering wheel controls which I imagine most if not...
