  1. Paddle Shifters in Base Model 3?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I've seen the 2.5 MZ3 and higher trims with paddle shifters, and I know that some of the wiring for the higher trims is already available in the base models (i.e. the fog light wiring harness), so my question would be has anyone attempted to retrofit the paddle shifters into a base model 3?
