    I may be asking this well before anyone can answer this, but I'll ask any way: would we be able to swap/upgrade to the colored HUD from the 2017 Mazda3s? I'm assuming this may be more than just swapping out the display itself since there are new graphics/features, but I would like to be sure...

  6. Swapping rear bumper from hatch to sedan, direct fit?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Just wanna make sure before I purchase a rear hatchback bumper, if it will fit directly on the sedan. From my understanding the only difference is the bumper on the hatch has exhaust cut outs. Other than that, it should bolt right up? If rather go that route than cut up my original bumper...

    Hi all, I like my new '13 3 hatch, but not the seats so much. I have a back issue and am thinking if it's possible to swap out the seat in my car for a power seat from a 2010 with the power tilt and all the rest. The power tilt is what I'm really looking for. Any hints, information...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I found this idea in a thread on TorontoMazdas about adding the MID display to a 3 that did not come with one. Well that mod works, but turns out the info buttons are needed to control the MID, and they are expensive - about the same price of a used leather GT wheel!:tongue: I am starting a new...
