    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    First post here and planning to purchase a Jet Black Mazda 3 FWD Premium tomorrow for my wife. We've looked at and drove an Accord and Camry and my wife just loves the Mazda 3.

    HELLO So, I have done lots of research for my car on ways to get extra Horse and options are clearly limited for my car.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So I recently installed an Ultimate Racing exhaust on my 2016 Mazda 3 Hatch. It only has 2 of the pinhooks to secure it as opposed to the 4 that was on the original muffler. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good way to pull the exhaust up so that it sits more flush with the bumper. I won't be...

    To all who have adjustable rear camber kits: What choice did you make for your rear camber adjusting needs? Has anybody tried the Moog (p/n 100303) or SPC (p/n 67415) rear camber/toe kit with the toe arm and extended arm bolt adjuster? What is the true range of adjustment? Does it REALLY...
  8. Tuning Options for 2017 Forward

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I've been looking through some rather old threads involving tuning and doing some review checking and researching on a few different tuning companies. I'm not looking to start any sort of drama on this thread, nor am I looking to have people fighting over opinions. I just want to know who's...
  9. Rear Motor Mount options?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I'm looking into getting an upgraded Rear Motor Mount for my 2017 MZ3 2.0 Auto. Yes, I know NHV is giong to be increased, not too worried about it. I've been looking into options and I noticed that some of the Gen1/Gen2 guys use an e-Focus RMM with success. My quesiton is do we have any RMM...
  10. Performance options for 2017 Mazda 3 2.0L?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey everyone, been a lurker here since I picked up my new skyactiv 3. In standard, of course. Its come time to get some warranty-voiding changes going, but of course as with all new cars - there is not really many performance changing options for this generation. What do you guys recommend I...
  11. 2nd Gen clutch options (gen1 clutch on gen2 trans?)

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hey guys, After 124k, and some admittedly rough driving, my factory clutch on my 2010 MZ3 S is slipping when that good torque comes on. Specifically, I'd like to see if a Gen1 clutch will work with the Gen2 2.5/6sp combination. I have perused RockAuto and there are a few clutch kits that have...
  12. Aftermarket stereo options for 2007 Mazda3

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    I've got a 2007 Mazda3 with the 6-speaker option and a single CD player, and the CD player itself is going out, skipping more and more frequently and not ejecting CDs reliably. I'm looking for a suitable aftermarket option that will preserve the LCD time/temp display. Everything I've been able...
  13. Roof rack options for 2012 sedan and hatch

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Just joined, 1st post. Loved my 2012 Skyactive sedan so much I got another, this time a hatchback with a stick. Just finished getting a Curt hitch on the tail and now I am looking to get a roof rack that mounts into the roof with screws, not the kind the clip on at the doors. I would also...
  14. Finally, clutch upgrade options from Spec Clutch!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I would like to preface this with a bit of a disclaimer: I am not a representative or sales person for Spec Clutch, nor do I have any affiliation with the company whatsoever. I am simply an enthusiast who hates the mushy factory clutch and needs something beefier to build up his Mazda3. I would...
  15. 2017 MZ3 Hood, options?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I've been looking around for aftermarket hoods but the only ones I can find are from a distributor from Thailand (MPS-Japan) and ZestJDM's CF Hood which says it ships UPS Ground?? (Sounds like it's just asking to be smashed before delivery). So I'm looking to find aftermarket hoods here in North...

  17. Trunk light clip is broken. What are my options?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Very upset! Brand new '17 Mazda 3 GT. Not even 200 miles on it. I was swapping out interior, license plate, and reverse lights for LED bulbs and all I had left was the trunk. The LED strip I got off Amazon was too big and stupid me thought it would be a good idea to try and force the adapter...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    What is everyone using in their skyactiv 2.5L motors? I generally use Motul in all my vehicles but wanted to hear what others had to say.
