  1. 2006 Mazda 3 Regular Maintenance

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Are 2004 Mazda RX-8 struts compatible with a 2006 Mazda 3? If not where can I get some decent quality struts with spring assembly for all 4 wheels for the lowest price possible? Also I am looking for wheel bearings as well for all 4 wheels. Thanks for the help. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    I drive a 2015 iGT HB for a daily and it's working out for my commute. A bit boring at times due to having an automatic tranny but when you need someone else to drive the car back home for the bar, there's no worries about the DD not being able to drive stick. I've been getting good MPG on my...

  10. How much does mpg drop when switching from LRR tires to regular tires?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    As I have mentioned several times in other threads, I hate Turanza's, the OEM tires on Mazda 3 SkyActiv, and I am shopping for new tires to replace them. However, I have found myself limited in choices while searching for low rolling resistance (LRR) tires only. If the sacrifice is only 1-2mpg...

    Buy / Sell / Trade
    Looking to trade my 2010 black mica Speed 3 spoiler for a normal 3 hatchback spoiler (of the same color). It looks like an easy swap see: HERE I live just north of LA in Santa Clarita, so a local trade would be ideal, as shipping is expensive and a pain in the ass.
