    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Hello. I installed the front lip after some polish and glaze. It looks pretty good. The side sills need painted of course. However, I was thinking about having a wrap shop put a gloss black vinyl on the side sills and the lower rear matte black portion of the rear bumper so it all matches...

    Hi, just got my 2006 Mazda 3 Hatchback and a few things need fixing. The driver side mirror goes up and down with the electrical control but not in-out (or side-to-side). I think the mirror mount is broken because the mirror is kind of "floppy" just pushing it on the sides with a finger. So...
