  1. Has anyone upgraded their halogen-equipped Mazda 3s to the GT-style LED headlights?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I have a question for anyone who understands the electronics and wiring of the 3rd gen Mazda 3s. I just ordered some GT replica headlights for my halogen-equipped (iTouring, 2016) Mazda 3. After install, it seems that the LED strip is only used as the parking light and the projector is used as...
  2. 2007 Mazda 3 Mods?

    2004-2009 Mazda 3 Performance & Mods
    I bought a 2007 Mazda 3 Grand touring Hatchback with a 2.3L with the 5 speed manual transmission. Its in pretty nice shape on inside and the outside has some chips, scratches and dings but overall its a fairly nice car. It has 182K miles but as far as the engine, clutch and trans it shifts well...

    Hello everyone Whenever I'm pumping brakes on my '14 M3 hatch, I'm hearing this screaching sound coming from my rear left tire.

  8. Buying a 2014 MZ3 sGT this week help me decide!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    So I have my mind set on a 2014 Mazda 3 s Grant Touring. It retails for $27290 MSRP (no tech package) which is good because the extra $2k is not worth it to me. The car is in great supply at every dealership and I have an employee discount + college incentive they are offering so I can get the...

  10. 2012 Skyactiv Handling Touring vs Grand Touring

    M3R Rides, Meets and Pics!
    Thought I'd post a few more pics to go with all the other great looking cars here. I'm looking at some wheels for the future and a few other tweaks. I have had a CAT back exhaust done and a drop in K&N air filter, don't know if it will make that much diff but it sounds cool... Might look into...
