  1. 2019 Mazda 3 differences

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I saw a couple of YouTube videos on the 2019 Mazda 3 and the aussie version gets rear seat vents. Also the brake calipers seem much bigger than the NA spec. First pic is NA spec Mazda 3 Second and third pics are from Aussie spec Mazda 3
  2. Are there any other differences on the 2016 models compared to the 2018 models?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I know the front and grill shape are different - but I was wondering is anything else different not usable in terms of cosmetics like the MIT grill? What would you guys in the MIT grill replacement? Also anyone have recommendations for wind visors, roof rack, lowering kit (don't want to go...
  3. CKP/CMP Camshaft position sensor differences

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Apparently the Mazda 3 has 2 CMP sensors (intake and exhaust), but also has a CPK camshaft sensor. What does the CPK sensor do? NEVER MIND - CPK is crankshaft position sensor.
  4. Final Drive and Gearing Differences between models

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I was browsing Mazda's site yesterday looking for information about brakes, and I stumbled upon some interesting information regarding the MT, and the gearing is different between the 3i and the 3s, and how the final drive differs between models. The gearing is as follows: Mazda 3i Sport 1st...
  5. Differences between 2015 and 2016 models?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Are there any differences between the 2015 and 2016 models? I’m just curious.
  6. Brake Pad Options / Differences - pad size?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I have a 2015 2.5 GT 6spd, and I thought the rotors are larger on the GT (or maybe the 2.5). I'm trying to track down if, besides EBC, there are other pad options that exist. I can trace pad #s to see if anything cross references with another year/model but I'm having a hard time deciphering...
  7. Surprised by gear ratio differences

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I have a loaner 2.0L with an automatic. My car is a 2.5L with a manual. At 70mph my car is running about 2500rpm. The 2.0L auto is running about 2000 rpm. That's a huge difference, and the engine is smaller/weaker. Very surprising that the 2.5L is geared so low in 6th. Certainly explains...
  8. Mazda 3 Differences in Radios: 2012 vs 2013 (Eonon GA5163)

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm looking to buy an Eonon GA5163 HU. There site says it's compatible for the Mazda 3 2010-2012. My question is there any differences in the wiring from the 2012 to the 2013. I have non Bose 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback (Skyactiv)
  9. Tail Light Differences

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I am wanting to get some vinyl tint overlays for the taillights on my 2012 sedan. Would hatchback overlays fit?
  10. Differences in 2010/2011 bumper and 2012/2013

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So I was looking to install a GV style grill on my 2013 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Hatchback. I was talking with Jon from NextMod and he was telling me that the replica they carry will only fit the 2010/2011 Mazda 3 bumper. And a grill for a 2013 Mazda 3 would cost ~$700 (direct from Garage Vary). I want...
  11. 2014-2015 Floor Mat Differences?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hey guys, new Mazda driver here and new to the forum as well. I've been looking around and I'm happy to be a part of the community. I've got a 2015 Mazda 3 Hatchback and seeing as how winter is looming and we get tons of salt laid down on the roads here in Colorado, I've been researching...
  12. 1st and 2nd gen Primary o2 sensor differences.

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    Alrighty my ms3 peeps, so I have learned that the shop I went to, that installed my DP a while back, put a 1st gen Denso primary o2 sensor. They stripped the original sensor, they tried their best to not strip it but it happened. I had them order me a new sensor right away cuz I just couldn't be...
  13. H11 vs H11B Differences??

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'm planning to purchase LED bulbs. I have sGT, does anyone know which bulb type will fit the fogs without any modification? Is it H11 or H11B? Thanks!
  14. Differences in OEM Sedan 2.5L exhaust vs OEM Hatchback 2.5L exhaust?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Are there any differences? I know an OEM MS3 exhaust on a sedan comes up 2" short, leading me to believe the OEM 2.5L sedan exhaust would be 2" too long for a hatchback. The part numbers are slightly different as well. Anyone know for sure?
  15. Seat Differences ?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Are there any differences in the leather seat skins between the S and the i models? Im pretty sure they all have the same seats no? Only dif being leather vs cloth and manual vs electric? Thanks
  16. Sedan vs Hatch Seat Skin Differences

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Does anybody know offhand what the differences are between the 2012 sedan and hatch seat skins? I have a sedan with OEM dune cloth and can pick up leather skins cheap but apparently they are meant for a hatch. If its an easy fix I will get them... Thoughts?
  17. model differences

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi, I got my Mazda 3 Sport GT in Canada from the first series of shipments. Since then I have noticed that pretty much every car of the same model seems to have some differences from my car. I'm just looking for any information about these differences. For example: - my car has turn signal...
