    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Is there like a beginners guide to learning how to mod the car?

I just don't really know where to...

    M3R Rides, Meets and Pics!
    First of all, here's my Mazda 3i hatch. It's currently stock. My Mazda 3 is my daily driver and so it's expected to do daily driver things. Basically, I expect it to be a reliable, economical, and safe vehicle that will transport me from point A to point B with a minimum of fuss. A stock...

  17. modding before an AccessPort?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    Alot of people have told me to get a Cobb Accessport before I start modding, is that true? I understand what they do and how they work, but they are pretty pricey for me. I guess my main question is this... What mods can I do, that do not require an Accessport?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Picked up a spare headlight and I'm playing with a stock halogen projector and HID. Factory projector leaves much to be desired. Stock lens is about 24mm thick, so I ordered a pair of FXR clearlenses to experiment with. The clearlens has a slightly smaller lip and is a few mm smaller in...

    Hi all, been following as a guest for awhile, figured it's time I signed up. Had my 2nd gen Mazda 3 for about a year now and just installed a really nice Corksport exhaust system (pics soon to follow during a nicer day), and got a Corksport SRI in the mail. I look forward to any comments.
