    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi guys, I just recently got my first Mazda 3 2015 SP25 this week (second hand) and have been reading up on AIO tweaks and would like to get into it. On first look the version I am running is 51.00.351 it would be ADR since I live in Australia. Seeing as AIO only supports v55+, I need to...
  2. How safe are CMU tweaks?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Okay, so I am a worrier. I have a CX-3 with version .753. All I want to do is install the tweak that pauses the CD when you hit mute. I don't need any problems. Has anyone had a problem doing this? It is hard to understand why it didn't come this way.

    I took off my engine cover, does the cover serve a functional purpose (protecting hood/surrounding components from heat or is it purely aesthetic?) Reason I ask is because I see this heat protection/padding on the underside of the cover...or is this just to protect the cover itself from heat...
  6. rear springs installed, is this safe?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I just had my road magnet 1.25 springs installed on my 2013 mz3sgt after work and it's a fairly even 2 finger gap right now.
