  2. Mazda AIO in 4 Gen models

    2019+ Mazda 3 Audio & Electronics
    Has anyone looked under the hood and check whether Mazda removed any possibility of third party software tweaks to the infotainment system? I know that the gen 3 models were linux based systems, hopefully the news models still employ linux.

  12. DIY rear motor mount for 3rd gen Mazda 3

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Filled a stock mount with 65 durometer urethane. Now, I will say that this mod will increase the NVH on the car significantly and that the driver's side mount (transmission mount) is a far superior albeit costly and labor-intensive mod. But this will also help lock down the drivetrain and really...

    My 2008 Mazda3 Hatchback has two storage trays and lids above the spare tire. The main tray has cracked. I have found a couple of first gen sedans in a salvage yard, but no hatchbacks...and it is a bit of a drive out there. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the sedans had the same...
