  1. I finally locked my keys in my car!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I don't like to carry my keys and especially not the AKE fob when I'm fishing or paddling. I'm much more comfortable locking them in the car and just carrying one door key, but I haven't been able to do that with my 2015 hatchback. Usually I just left the fob in the trunk and left the hatch...
  2. Lurker here, finally saying hello.

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hey all! I've been here for over a year now, but I'm just finally saying hello. I spend most of my time browsing the mazda/mazda3 subreddit instead because I vastly prefer the layout on that website than a forum. That being said, the information I've found here is absolutely bananas. Last year...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Had a great Canada Day yesterday at autocross. Still continuing to learn the balance of when to push and when to be patient and its been a very rewarding experience. Im very pleased with how far I have come and will keep pushing to get myself into the top 10.
  6. Check engine code P0365 finally fixed (I hope)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Check engine code P0365 finally fixed (I hope). 2014 Mazda 3 stalled numerous times and if it would restart was jerking. The dealer I bought it from repeatedly replaced exhaust camshaft sensors (well, first time they replaced the intake sensor - mechanic thought it only had one camshaft!). I...
  7. Finally a Mazda owner

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hello everyone! I've had a few cars the last couple of years; but i finally got my chance to purchase the new Mazda 6 (2017 facelifted version). I have always endorsed Mazda vehicles because of their design, quality and handling. Never have i driven such a "large" car, that feels so "small"...
  8. Finally: Skyactiv 2.5 Cams

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I've waited a long time for this. So I just bought some "Stage 2" cams for my 2.5 mazda 3 without really thinking about the repercussions (even though I knew there would be). Am I going to need larger injectors and/or a bigger fuel pump? I'm running E85 now, and as we all know E85 eats a lot...

  11. Finally, clutch upgrade options from Spec Clutch!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I would like to preface this with a bit of a disclaimer: I am not a representative or sales person for Spec Clutch, nor do I have any affiliation with the company whatsoever. I am simply an enthusiast who hates the mushy factory clutch and needs something beefier to build up his Mazda3. I would...
  12. Finally, Zs_3's Build!! (Pic Heavy)

    This build thread is now completed. The 3 will be returned entirely to it's stock form and will be traded in for a different vehicle within the coming months. Thanks for a hell of a ride with all you guys, I've had a blast! April 10th, 2017 (The day I brought it home): So now let's go a...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide

  16. Finally did it

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Took the plunge on a 2013 Speed 3 Touring today. I test drove it 5 miles and I knew it was the one. Immediately hopped in my 3i, did the same route, that car never felt so slow. The one thing I noticed was turbo lag. I wasn't expecting any, but you can definitely feel it spool. Then it kinda...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Well it's been over 3 months, but I got it earlier this week! Spent the weekend doing the Interior lighting kit, remote start, aero kit, alloy pedals, and front plate relocator (courtesy of @minsanity). So here it is, after 2 1/2 years of planning this purchase, here it is! Loving it! Tint it...
