    I'm pretty noob with anything electronics, but I managed to pull off the below this past weekend using the empty fuse block (9) from the interior fuse box. I used a low profile fuse tap with a 15A fuse since I read somewhere that's what that block should support. My question is if it's possible...

    Hi all, I just bought my 2nd mazda, a 2015 mazda 3 sedan with the base (not bose :wink2:) radio, no touchscreen either. I want to upgrade the whole audio system. I don't know much about audio but I used to be a mechanic, so at least I'm comfortable with removing trim I'd like some input on...

    Hi all, First post.... it's been awhile since I drove a manual transmission. My previous car was a honda prelude ( SS), and way before that a fox body mustang. I got a sweet deal on 2015 Mazda 3 sport with 48k miles on it, I was sick of worrying about when a auto trans will die... so I...

    This question goes for everyone who has different set of winter and summer tires/wheels, do you have to have your car aligned everytime you interchange the wheels/tires depending on the season? Thank you.

    Hi. I have the PAC line-out system to connect an amp to the stock head unit, a 2 channel amp, and component speakers.

    Hey everyone, I picked up a beautiful 2014 Mazda 3 i Touring last week. After reading through the firmware upgrade thread I didn't find the answer I was looking for. I have the old stereo with no display. I found the Bluetooth connection quite slow, as in a 3 to 4 second delay when changing...

    I recently picked up a 2015 Sport hatchback and I'm really anxious to swap out the stock 16 steel wheels. I'm ready to pull the trigger but I just need to find the right wheel. I'd prefer to go with the newer model OEM 18's but they seem to be hard to come by used in my area. There are a couple...
