    I have 2017 Mazda3 sport and I don't drive much (3000 miles a year!). AFAIK I need to follow some maintenance schedule that Mazda suggests in order to not hurt my warranty (and the car). The maza dealership wants me to come in every 4 months or 5000 miles whichever comes first which I think is...

    I ordered a front turn signal that acts as a DRL white, then switches amber for turn signal. I always disliked the orignal yellow-ish DRL, can i disabled it, but do want to keep high beam for safety on the streets. You guys probably already know, DRL and high beam uses the same bulb. Thanks

    2010 Mazda 3 Sedan. Id like to stick to OEM specs; no lowering. Bilstein? KYB? I'm not a Monroe fan. Any recommendations?

    Has anyone had success keeping the Mazda All Weather floor mats looking like new? I have 2015 M3 and it seems the floor mats are fading. Any proven suggestions would be appreciated?

    I've seen numerous ways on this forum to personalize your car. From spoilers to eyelids and from plasti dipping to de-badging. I can see the fun in that. But personal, I feel more emotional value to it by keeping it original. The Skyactiv badge for example is pretty sily I think, so I will be...

    Hello everyone. I'm new. I picked up my 2014 Mazda 3 S GT about a month ago. I love everything about it and have even been buying aftermarket accessories to make things even better. I do have one concern though: I drive everyday back and forth to work. That's the only trip I frequently make. My...

    I accidentally left my headlights on at work today. I was pleased to find out about auto-off, which turned off the headlights for me after 30 seconds. Or at least I ASSUME it did, as I came out 8 hours later and started up fine. The reason I have to assume is because I STILL didn't notice the...

    Hey Guys - This is my first black car since I was in high school! I remember it being a tough color, but I used to wash it at home, and bought really nice wax and used a random orb to buffer.... the rain would just fall off and never leave marks. Now as soon as I leave the car wash I have...

    Does anyone encounter spots on their backup camera's due to the glass getting dirty from road debris / dried up water? It's been raining a lot this spring and I don't want to clean it off every couple days. I'm tempted to use RainX in order for water to just bead off and not dry up on the...

    OK, I washed my car yesterday about 4pm and around 8pm the car was already green covered in pollen! Is there anything to keep these magnet link between my car and the pollen? lol Thanks

    they say you can do it, but when you need the warranty theyre gonna do everything they can to "prove" you voided the warranty. so lets talk about how we can avoid that bs. i am not going to be taking the car back to the dealership for service, theyre reasoning for why the oil change is almost...

    Has anyone done this yet? I looked all over but didnt see anything. Normally there is a PAC unit needed to be able to go about this but I was just curious if anyone had actually done an aftermarket head unit and kept it.
