    Hello fellow Mazda enthusiasts. I have a set of alloy wheels from a MZ CX5 on my MZ 3. I bought it like that. It looks pretty good and no rubbing whatsoever on the turns. Only problem is the TPMS light is lit on the dash. What do y’all (Texas!) use as far as pairing the sensors to the car. I...

I've tried to Google about it but can't seem to find anything, is...

    Does anyone have experience using one of the ebay steering wheel wrapping kits on these cars? I traded in my 18 WRX for my 3 and I really like the interior except for the wheel not being leather wrapped. I am 95% sure I will be installing one of the ebay kits but wanted to see if anyone had...

  13. What's the best, first mod to do for your MZ3?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Just looking to gather everyone's opinions on the first or 'must do' mods. For me, it's window tint! Keeps the car cooler and I don't feel like I'm sitting in a fishbowl anymore. I installed Android Auto and that is a super cool piece of tech (Waze and Google Maps is a great combo). What else...
