  1. Whats under the hood of this RX-8??

    Video's
    Recent video from the Nurburgring of a partially camouflaged RX-8 on a closed course manufacturer test day... Rotary engine, probably not, but an old RX-8 might be a good test bed to hide a new 3.0 I6 power train in.....

  3. Rattling/grinding noise under hood 2004 2.3l

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    I recently started my car and heard a loud noise coming from the engine. It went away/quieted down, so I drove the 5-10 minutes back home. I go out the next day and I still hear a noise, not like it was though. Seems to kinda come and go. Drove it for a few minutes to see if it went away, and...

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    Would anyone happen to know the nut size that holds down the high current AMI/MIDI Fuses. I was replacing the 80 amp power steering fuse in a 2009 Mazda 3 hatch and managed to drop a nut. Thank you.

  7. 2015 Mazda 3 Hood "Flutters" After Repairs

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I hope this is the right place for this. Anyways, after a series of unfortunate events last summer I finally got my car repaired last month. They replaced the front bumper and left front quarter panel among other things. I noticed that the hood seems to "flutter" when driving at highway speeds...
  8. Dark spot/"stain" on hood paint of 2017 M3

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi, I have a relatively new 2017 Mazda 3 Jet black pearl that I bought 6 months ago. I've babied the car and have only taken it thorough an automatic car wash 4-5 times. It has been parked outside under a shady tree for its life. Today I came back from the car wash and noticed a subtle...

  10. Another Speed3 Hood?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Anyone know where the hood on the blue 3 below comes from? I know it looks similar to this one (link below), but I actually believe it's different. The hood scoop on the hood is located in a higher position on the hood. Any help on this guys? Especially you folks abroad...
  11. MazdaSpeed3 Hood for 3rd Gen

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hi All, Just putting a feeler out there. Me and my "associate" (haha) have placed an order for two of these hoods. The hoods do not appear to be functional Ram Air, but we are setting up a 3D scanner and going to attempt to make it Ram Air. It could totally not work out, or it could work out...
  12. Hood struts/dampers

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Thinking about making my own hood strut setup since Corksport has discontinued theirs and it appears many of the eBay sites have as well. Wondering if anyone who already has them installed or similar ones can tell me the extended and retracted lengths of struts used. Thanks!
  13. Hood Paint Chips

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    My commute is virtually all highway (about 35 miles each way), so having some paint chips on the hood is not s surprise. What is a surprise to me is that some of the chips are beginning to show rust near their edges. I have a 2016 3 sedan; my 2004 Pontiac Vibe also had its share of chips, but...
  14. Looking for MZ3 OEM style hood w/ lightweight material

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I really like the look of my 2012 Mazda 3 but it has accumulated quite a few rock chips over the last few months. I tried using a variety of products to reduce the appearance of these chips and scratches, and some of the products worked but some made it worse. That's a long story that could...
  15. 2017 MZ3 Hood, options?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I've been looking around for aftermarket hoods but the only ones I can find are from a distributor from Thailand (MPS-Japan) and ZestJDM's CF Hood which says it ships UPS Ground?? (Sounds like it's just asking to be smashed before delivery). So I'm looking to find aftermarket hoods here in North...

  17. Hood insulation?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a base model 3, and it has no hood sound insulation. Do uplevel trims have this? Wondering how much impact this has on in-vehicle noise levels.

  19. Mazda Hood part number does not exist?

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hello all.... I'm new to this, so please bear with me. I bought a 2011 Mazda 3 Hatchback that was in an accident. Nothing major just a little body damage. I purchased a hood and put it on, and there is a 1 inch gap on both the left and right sides of the fenders (note passenger side fender is...
  20. Speed style hood for 3rd gen?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I`m not going to lie, I strongly prefer the 2nd gen speed 3. I enjoy what my 3rd gen has to offer, but my heart does pitter-patter for the previous. I saw somewhere a speed style hood for the 3rd gen but I`ll be damned if I can find it. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
