  2. 2015 Mazda3 i-touring (tech package)

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I just acquired mine last August. She's sitting on 5,052 miles as of right now. I'm going in for a tire rotation soon this week, but since the last 1,000 miles I've noticed fuel efficiency decrease. I did ride up onto a curb on my rear passenger pulling into work one day about 1,000 or so miles...
  3. CS Lowering Springs w/ Appearance Package

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Does anyone have the CS Lowering springs installed on a 3 with the appearance package on? I like the drop Corksport offers but I'm not sure I'll have enough clearance with the appearance package installed. I've got a 2015 2.5L manual. The general consesus seems that CS is too much and Eibach...

  5. Treaddepot.com Lost my wheel/tire package

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I placed an order for a wheel and tire package at treaddepot.com 3 weeks ago. Last Thursday the wheel manager told me my package would ship that day or the day after and he would send tracking numbers. He never did. I called them up and basically put me on hold for 30 min while they "looked...
  6. Missing tech package options

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Just picked up our 2015 Mazda 3 GT sport. A little disappointed that the features of the TECH package are different in the USA vs. Canada. The TECH package in Canada doesn't include FOW, Radar cruise control, TPMS. Just wondering if those components are simply not in the car or just not hooked...
  7. Lowering an M3 sGT with Technology Package

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Looking through the owner's manual and supposedly lowering a vehicle that has SCBS and radar cruise can interfere with the way those systems work. Has anyone lowered an sGT with Tech and had any issues? None of my techs at the dealership I work at know what to expect, as none of our customers...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hello, For all who have the 2014 Mazda 3 with the standard radio, what phone/gps mount do you use? There isn't any really great spots on the dash to mount something and living in California I cannot mount to the glass. I would like to avoid vent mounts as well because of heat on the phone and...
  9. Insurance and the Tech Package

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Has anyone gotten any direct quotes from their insurance company comparing the SGT with or without the Tech Package? I'm wondering if there is enough of an insurance difference to justify considering it. I don't care about the added safety features but the auto high beams, radar cruise control...

  13. Tech Package With CD Player

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So i have the 14 iTouring with the tech package. It came with the CD player which sits in the front of the center console. There's enough room to slide my phone under there, but more space is better space i think. Has anyone tried removing the CD player? Can it be replaced with anything? I...

    Hi, first post and considering my first Mazda3. I've searched and cannot find the answer, but is it possible to get color matched aero kits or is this something I'm going to have to get custom painted? I like this combo, but I think I'm going to have to commit to having it custom.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I just bought my first Mazda - you guessed it, a 2014 3 S GT Hatchback. When I started shopping I was looking at the CX-5's for more cargo room but the 3 just kept calling to me and a test drive with the 2.5 engine sealed the deal - let the drummer bring the kit to the gig! I had to settle for...

    I'm in the market for a new '14 Mazda 3. I test drove an i GT today, but came away from it mostly undecided on the features that make it a GT.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I just bought a 2014 iTouring 5 door without the tech package. I was wondering if it was possible to add anything from the tech package. The dealer couldn't get this particular model with a manual transmission with it. I read a few things that have said it would be practically impossible (or...

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    It is with a very heavy heart that I'm offering this complete suspension package up for sale. I bought it earlier in the year planning to put it on a few weeks after reception, but a lot of stuff has popped up and I feel that it would better serve a purpose on someone's car than patiently...

    Hello, 1st post here at this forum. I was researching stuff about the 2014 Mazda 3 and couldn't find much info about the "Appearance Package"(USA) or "Aero Package" (Canada), so I looked at some Japanese site and found some real life photos of the kit installed... And also spotted...
