    I currently own a 2013 non-skyactiv Mazda 3 hatch with the MZR 2.0. I know it is a little rev-happier than other engines, however I am curious about how much it can handle. I have been redlining it quite often recently, and am just wondering if it can truly take that kind of driving (like a...

    Does anyone know if nb Miata struts/coilovers (stock or aftermarket) will fit an 04 Mazda 3 sedan? There is more aftermarket options for miatas then there is for Mazda 3’s. TIA

    Just picked up a 2018 Mazda 3 hatchback touring (new) last week. I had a 2011 Mazda Miata with hard top retractable roof. I believe the Mazda 3 handles similar to the Miata.

    Hey all, New here - convinced my gf to pick up a 2017 GS Hatchback in Deep Crystal Blue. It was the easiest choice for me; it's absolutely stunning and drives incredibly well. I was telling her that was the car to pick; and even after test driving the Civic, Elantra, Impreza; she agreed. The...

    Has anyone thought to try the Miata ND OEM leather shift knob on our Mazda 3's? I cannot for the life of me find one brand new for sale anywhere.

    Hi guys, I am new to the forum, I just bought a used 2012 Mazda 3 SGT with the 2.5L motor with only 22,000 miles, and I love it! Well many years ago I had a Momo Race Airleather shift knob in a car that I sadly sold because the maintenance costs were so high. The car I bought after that...

    One of the steps backward for the current gen Mazda 3 imo is the abandonment of the gated auto shifter, which allowed for a small and tactically pleasing knob for those who liked to shift manually now and then. The current knob is larger, more square, and since it goes straight forward and back...

    In a world as scripted as pro wrestling, every once in a while a new superstar bursts on the scene with an undeniable charisma that makes everyone sit up and take notice. But as time moves on, they get older, softer and flabbier, losing some of that luster that initially made them a fan...
  14. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    It looks like there is a kit that was developed for older miatas using an electric turbo and a 24v battery (2 12v motorcycle batts) that provides a very easy to install and use FI setup that gives nice gains. Links to threads here: Openflash Electric Supercharger (Dyno & Pics) - MX-5 Miata...

    Anyone have thoughts on the 17" 10-straight-spoke mx5 wheels on the gen3 ms3? I like the simple, yet classy look. I hear they are also light at 17lbs each. Would I need spacers for them?

    Thoughts? Sounds like people are starting to get sandy vaginas over this car. Basically people are wanting to buy cars that drive for you not you driving the car, perfect example is the ST. How can you complain about a car that you actually have to drive, sounds like a bunch of whiners.... I...
