  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I have seen some discussions on the differences between the hatch and sedan with respect to looks, utility, and space. A post at http://mazda3revolution.com/forums/2014-mazda-3-skyactiv-discussion/87362-2014-i-gt-5-door-36-000-mile-58-000km-review.html#/forumsite/20910/topics/87362 reports that...
  2. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    In the process of getting everything together to upgrade my audio from the stock Bose on my 2011 3. Still a little while from getting the door speakers, dynamat and wiring. Figured I'd go ahead and install the HU, a Pioneer x5700BHS. After reading and finding out that the stock Bose amp needs...

    I want to replace my stock 16 wheels on my '13 skyactive 3 but don't really have much money. I like to upgrade to 17 but then I would have to shell out for a set of new tires too; so I am wondering if you experts here think there is really a big difference in look of 16 vs 17. 18 inches...

    I nearly read through all the pages of the owners manual for Mazda 3 and I found significant difference in maintenance schedules between US and Mexico. Could anyone shed light on why? For example, US schedule does not require to replace Brake Fluid or Fuel Filter, while Mexico schedule...

    So the oem 17" aluminum wheels for '10-'11 were manufactured by two different companies; Lio Fung and Hitachi. I'm replacing a wheel, don't want to go aftermarket, so I am shopping for an oem wheel. My local dealer told me that if my current wheels are LF, then I should replace with LF and not...

    I had 16" steelies on my 3 for a while and recently switched them to the snowflake 17s. The snowflakes came with 205/50/17 stock tires but the tread was fading. I'm looking to buy new tires for them and was wondering if I should stick to the 205/50/17 or switch to 205/45/17 which I was looking...

    Just changed my oil and filter. Test drove it. Everything seems smoother to me right after an oil change. Anyone else notice a difference or is it my car placebo kicking in?
  9. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    This week I installed a 35w 6000K HID kit in my 2009 mazda 3. At first I though it was plenty bright but I've realized things would probably look 100x with the 55w HIDs. My question is if I buy another kid that is 55w can I just replaced the ballasts that I currently have in my car and leave the...

    so far everything has been well with the turbo setup, just tweaking little things here and there.. what is really interesting though is my MPG differences.. i'm really surprised I have over 400miles on the trip ( and 400 on the turbo ) and I still have 3 bars on my fuel gauge! that has never...

    I have done the search, and did not find any comparison info.... I had a P5, and now I have a Genpu, both manual. In my P5, I changed the transmission fluid (the gear oil) to Redline MT90, and it made a world of difference. In P5, as some of you know for sure, the shifter is connected to a...

    Hi guys, Went to Pioneer Place over the weekend and happened to parked next to this black MS3. Not sure if it's a sport or grand touring but one thing that stands out is the different antenna base. Could this be an updated style or was it a trim difference?

    Hi all -- I've got a 2010 3s sport automatic, and there's an issue with the pedals that's really been bothering me. The brake pedal is much much closer to the driver than the accelerator. I'd like to be able to switch between gas and brake by pivoting on my heel. But I can barely do this...
