  1. Factory Bose rear wire color?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Does anyone know the polarity for the two rear speaker wires for a factory BOSE unit for my 2013 4dr? Appears purple and white for rear driver side...just cannot figure out which is (+) and which is (-). May have to use a small 9v to test if cannot find an answer here. Thanks for the help!

  3. Factory wheels with thicker tires

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Ok I like the factory 18in wheels on my mazda 3 but there is a problem with potholes in my city. I'm just wondering if anyone has tried running perhaps a 215/50-18 or maybe a 215/55-18 or if this is even possible to do without any rubbing.
  4. Can someone post a video of the *FACTORY* Android Auto in action?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm curious to see how integrated it is. I have a 2016.5 CX-5 with AIO installed currently, so I know how AA itself works. For example, with Waze/Maps running, does it have a volume indicator? Radio station indicator when changing channels? Can you change the input? I've seen some really good...
  5. HID Swap

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I am curious has anyone swapped the halogens on the sport model hatchback 2017 with Factory HIDs? I want to know if it is plug and play or what goes into it. I retrofitted my last vehicle but don't want to if possible. Also where you found them if you did.
  6. How many miles did you get out of the factory Dunlops?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I know that total miles might vary a bit between the 2.0 and 2.5 Mazda3s, but I'd like to know how many miles you were able to get out of these tires before the tread was done. I know these are sport tires and have a lower tread wear rating. Off to Gen 3 Wheels and Tires
  7. Flat tire - home plug, but factory nitrogen

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    For ease of mind, I don't need to get my flat tire refilled with nitrogen, correct? My 2015 Mazda was bought used with nitrogen tires, and yesterday I had a TPMS warning about 5 minutes from home. Pulled a screw out of the tread and the tire began leaking more. Pulled the tire off and did a...

    I'm looking for a factory exhaust system (first cat back) from a 12' or 13' Mazda 3 SkyActiv Sedan. Why would I want a stock exhaust? Well, about two years ago I installed a Corksport exhaust on my 3 and left the stock exhaust with my landlord. I moved out and asked if I could keep the exhaust...

    Hello all, I'm new to this forum and really I would just like to pose a question. My dad is the one who owns a 2009 Mazda 3. It ate one of my CDs YEARS ago. It was always a gamble weather or not you would get your CD back but it has gotten to the point that even the disk in the unit will...

  18. 2017 Mazda 3 Factory Service Manual? (Removing Front Bumper)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I'm trying to install my Hella Horns and throw my front lip on at the same time, so I'm removing my front bumper to do both. I can't seem to find a factory service manual online for the 2017, or even a DIY for removing the front bumper. Not trying to break any tabs or screw anything up during...
