    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    So our M3sGT came with this fancy key remote that we never have to actually put in the ignition to start the car. If we lose one of the two they gave us, well I'm sure that sucks. So to be preemptive I would like to get an extra key. I will probably get one with the remote and another that is...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Looking to replace interior and exterior bulbs with LED. I have been to several websites: superbrightleds.com VLEDS.com Problem is that the replacement guide in the manual doesn't talk so much about part numbers for interior bulbs. I have it pretty much figured out but looks like I'll...

    I've had my MS3 for a week now and am underwhelmed with the Bose. I want to retain the head unit as I like the Bluetooth 2.0, Nav and Sat integration. My problem is I'm getting mixed answers from some of the installers. One installer says I can remove the Bose amp and speakers and sub and that...

    2004-2009 Mazda3Appearance & Interior
    With the "white" light that comes from my HID headlights on the Mazda 3, you could really tell how "yellow" the fog lights were.
