    Going to put my Mazda 3 hatchback on air soon, I was wondering if anyone knew if our suspension has an eccentric bolt in the rear that allows you to adjust the camber at all?

    Hey folks I know y'all have seen me around, been in touch with a local dealer. Yesterday I first asked them about the 2015 and if they had any info. They were surprised that I was even talking about the manual option with the 2015 2.5L. They had no info and we're unaware at this time for any...
  18. Put on chrome mirror accents

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Just a nice little touch. I also put chrome handles, you can kinda see them in these photos. The chrome really looks good with the jet black mica, Imo. Next thing I'll do is get chrome wheels, a real spoiler and that'll be it. I'm not into modifying my cars much.
