  1. 2012-2013 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So my 2012 3SA (MT) has been running great. It started up and ran great this morning. After work today, it started and instantly stalled. Started again, instantly stalled. So, I gave it some gas, and it ran, but a little rough. If I feathered the pedal, it would run pretty nice at 3k and up...

    I did the serial hack on my MAZDA 3 FW. 59.00.502 4A N (ADR). I installed some tweaks, everything is working as expected. In the MZD-AIO 2.83 (tips & trick) it's said that I can run AA from an SD card, but it's not really clear how to do that. I want to run AA from an SD card, so I installed the...

    I was wondering if anyone new how to set up DRLs in a 2011 mazda 3. I just installed new Spec-D Tuning lights (part number 2LHP-MZ310JM-TM). I isolated the wire for the LED strip in it. But I'm not a wiring expert and don't know what I'm doing. Can anyone help point me in the right direction?
  4. Exterior Lighting
    My Mazda has really cool park lights. The cat eye halos. The standard running lights are just a two dashes. Is there anyway to mod the lights so that the cool halos are the day time running lights? I notice the second edition in this year has those as standard.

    So I have a 2014 S Touring, and I thought the Daytime Running Lights were supposed to include lights around the halo like this: But instead, mine just look like this, with only a single broken line on each headlight: Is there anyway I can get the halo DRLs?
  7. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hi everyone, I'm going to be installing Racing Beat springs on stock shocks/struts and adding as much negative camber as I can using Eibach camber bolts. I know that within OEM specs, more negative camber and more positive camber is a good thing, but what about toe? I realize that most of...

    I traded my 2015 sGT in for a 2018 GT and noticed the daytime running lights behave differently. The 2015 DRL's halo lights ran during the day, with the headlights off. On the 2018, the headlights are on along with the halos. I've ran through the settings with no luck of finding a solution. Is...

    I don't understand how this even happened. I have a 2016 iSport. Started the car to warm it up this morning, shut the door, heard the locks... So, the car continued running with the FOB inside and the doors would not open. Had to wait an hour outside in 12 degree F snow for a tow driver to...

  11. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Hello to those this may apply to: I am coming from a road raced Honda and am not as familiar with the suspension geometry of these cars in relation to spring rates per application. I was hoping I could get some idea of what spring rates to order for some BC Coilovers based on my ultimate goal...
  12. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I have 215/45R-18 and they ok but I was thinking of swapping to a 225/50R-17 setup for slightly less harsh ride and at the same time a tad wider. I would imagine they should fit but not 100% sure. Anybody running a 225/50R17 on their Mazda 3 GT?

    Hello I just bought a 17 mazda 3 hatchback and installing my amp power wire and wanted to see how you all attached your wire to the battery. I was thinking doing it like the second picture but not sure if it will pop the fues already there? Thanks for your time.

    I'm looking at getting a full Eibach Pro-Kit for my 2017 MZ3 within a month or two, and I wanted to see if anyone has installed kit 5557.880 which includes both front and rear sway bar along with springs as well. I kind of do a lot of "spirited driving" when running on the country back roads...

    I'm a NOOBIE, daaaaaaa, bought a 2014 M3 sGT, and trying to learn all about it, and I read that the Running Lights come on Automatically. When I start my car up - they do not show as ON [blu icon].....when I put it in gear, the icon does not light up either......if I manually turn them on, they...

    My girlfriend drives a 2010 Mazda 3 (2.5/manual) and has been having issues with the passenger side lower console heating up extremely hot to the touch while the A/C is on. I attached a picture of exactly where the heat is sourced. It doesn't do it when the A/C is off or if just the blower is...

I noticed when I exit the car while it's running, only the drivers side door remains unlocked. I can not unlock all my...
