  2. 2004-2009 Mazda 3 Performance & Mods
    Hi Everyone, I am looking for a solution to change the gear ratio in my 2005 2.3 Mazda 3, particularly for the last gear to make it more of an overdrive. The car was purchased in the US with a stock 5-gear manual transmission but I subsequently changed the transmission to a 6-gear one from 2007...

    Hello All! Last car became a submarine when my street flooded. Just used the insurance payment to purchase a 2005 3i 2.0L sedan in strato blue from a colleague at work. Always been a fan of Mazda and the 3 is a fun little car to drive. I got a good deal on it, so I am thinking about putting a...
  4. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Again, I apologize in advance if I'm asking a common or dumb question. Still trying to figure out how this forum works lol. So, in the midst of daydreaming about modifying my brand new iTouring I got last month, it dawned on me that I might do something to my car that could void my coverage /...

    Hi, I'm very new to this forum, Mazdas, and modifications so I'm still learning, so I apologize if I'm doing anything wrong or asking dumb questions. So, I just got my 2016 i Touring hatch last month and love it so far. I'm eager to modify it so much that I made a list of potential places/links...

    Hi everyone! I'm the new owner of a 2010 crystal white Mazda 3. I've only had the car for about two months so far but I'm already in love with it! I'm inspired to modify it a bit and make it look more "sporty", but I'm clueless about where to start. I would love to hear some of your guys'...
  8. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey everyone I recently bought my 2014 Mazda 3 sport 2.0 hatchback and really love it. Despite really liking the car I would like to make it faster. I have a good amount of expendable cash I would just like to get some suggestions on what modifications I should get.
  9. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    As some of you here may know, I've added quite a few "photoshopped" customized photos of the 2014 Mazda 3 here on the 2014 (Gen-3) subforums. I know quite a few of you enjoyed the police car version of the 2014 Mazda3 that I came up with, and I've been using that same file to show off how I plan...

  11. 2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Appearance & Interior
    It seems like all you 2010-2012 guys have an info screen (temp and all that) that has a red background which is good because it actually matches your interior. Well, in my 2013 that panel is blue and the one next to it is gray... my head unit is blue too... and everything else is red. Well...
  12. 2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Hey all, I've searched around a bit and got a ton of information but am wondering what the most recent recommendation for HID's are for a 2013 MS3. I'd like to put in some HIDs but there's so many options that i'm a bit hesitant to pull the trigger on anything. Looking to replace both the fogs...

  14. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Working on adding a few LEDs to replace incondescent lighting on my 3. Today I did the rear hatch light. This had a small festoon style bulb, and I fitted it with a custom circuit board drawing 180milliamps of current. This board has 9 total LEDs. I designed it in CAD and etched/assembled the...

    Hey everyone. I'm a new forum member. I recently bought a red 2011 Mazda 3 s Touring hatchback for my wife. She loves it, but after a long drive out of town I realized I have a problem. I'm 6'5" and the sunroof version of the car we purchased doesn't quite have enough headroom. Long story...
  18. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So, I've done a lot of reading on several Mazda 3 Forums and came to the conclusion that suspension mods are going to return more on investment than any CARB legal modifications I can make to the intake and exhaust. I am interested in improving cornering stability without affecting ride...

    Hey Everyone! This is my first posting even though I bought my 2010 Mazda3i Touring in September 2010. It's my second Mazda3. I traded in my 2004 3s for the touring to get better gas mileage. So far I'm a bit disappointed on the mpg. It really just gave me 1-2 miles more per gallon than the 2004...
