Anyone able to advise how low the biting point of the petrol 165bhp Mazda 3 generally is.
Test drive one at the weekend and it was really low and bit almost immediately when letting off the clutch.
Does this sound about right as it was very keen to engage.
Good day! I have a trouble when install MZD Tweak.
Firmware 504. Car - Cx-5 2017. After dismantling the front panel and connecting to the device, I was able to patch it.
I used 2 commands:

Forgive me if this has been covered somewhere else...I couldn't find it.
Where are the proper point to place a floor jack to lift either the front or rear...not looking for the point for a scissor jack/jack stands.
I read on several forums that you should shift a stock MS3 at 5700 rpms but this doesn't seem right. The car is boost limited in 1st and 2nd and there is no dyno graph of those gears. It certainly does not feel faster short shifting 1st and 2nd. And even in 3rd and 4th with full power available...
I picked up a 2011 3s with the 6-speed manual about a week ago. My past cars have been a 91 N/A RX-7 and a 02 Corolla, both with a manual transmission.

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for a permanent, ascetically pleasing solution for a front tie down point on a 2013 Mazdaspeed 3. I have a Yakima Rocketbox cargo box (longest one on the market) that I am constantly putting on and taking off the car, and since it overhangs...
Update: July 28, 2013 - Confirmed by looking at Mazda website that for 2013 Mazda 3 Skyactiv, the jack up point is exactly the same as described below.
If the Skyactiv has the same rigid jack up points as the Mazdaspeed 3, then I think I've found the point on the Skyactiv.
This is the workshop...
Whats the best shift point for max acceleration in a 2.0 5spd manual? I know these arent exactly fast cars but what gives best 0-60 and 1/4? I usually aim for 6.6-6.7k when going all out. I heard somewhere that these cars do better when you short shift but I dont understand how thats possible...
All the how to mods, I 've seen in this are mostly for 2.5 manual.
I have a 2.0 automatic, I just want a better fuel consumption, I'm not a "racer" that thinks making my car louder will make my car faster.. any thoughts?
I saw this in the 2010 MS3 workshop manual, page 30. I remember trying to search for best jack points when I started to mod, so I thought this would be helpful to others.

I took my '08 Mazda3 in to the dealer at around 41,000 miles for a metal grinding sound when I push the clutch in. They diagnosed it as a bad pivot point, which isn't covered under warranty because it's "not broken." They lubed it and sent me on my merry way and the noise (and feeling) is back...
Last time I washed my beloved Mazda3, I found a tiny rust spot on the back door.
It's not bigger than a pen point, but it is a rust, and comes from inside the paint.
I have already told the problem the local Mazda service, who assured me, that it's clearly a problem that includes the...
