Here's how much I use mine... 😂😂😂my car is 5 years old now and i don't think the CD player has been used once. don't even know if it works lol.
Neat idea. Might as well get some use out of that space.Here's how much I use mine... 😂😂😂
Please excuse the crappy images. I have a new phone and the photo editor is really dumb. How difficult it is to remove the CD player from our center console? Is it tied to the control unit above? Do you have to remove the entire console? I'm just looking for a place to mount the Helix Director...www.mazda3revolution.com
Can't say that I remember what color leather interior the deep crystal blue cars came with, but it's either black or parchmant. No such thing as black parchment. Your car came with navigation and the accompanying SD card. Why would you have to retrofit it? Same for the paddle shifters.I'm loving my 2018 GT hatchback 2.5-L with 6-speed A/T, in Deep Crystal Blue Mica exterior with Black Parchment Leather interior. Thanks to the collective knowledge provided by this community, I've retrofitted it with genuine Mazda navigation (SD card), splash guards, roof rack, and paddle shifters; and customized it with an aftermarket Eibach/Koni suspension kit, and BBS/Michelin wheels and tires. It definitely fights well above its "weight class". I thought I was going to leave this car completely stock, but in hindsight I suppose that was just wishful thinking...
OK, my mistake. Just looked at my Monrony sticker and realized that nav and paddles were part of the premium equipment package, which your car obviously doesn't have. As for the interior color, that's commonly referred to as a "parchment" interior. The alternative is all black with brown accents and is referred to as "black".Alrighty, then.
First of all, I bought the car CPO so IDK what is cosidered standard equipment.
I got the color names off the Mazda website, so pardon me for the misrepresentation. The interior is both black and parchment, whatever its nomenclature.
The car did not come with the SD card included, so all I had to do was purchase one and insert it into its slot, to activate the built-in navigation system.
I can assure you that the car did not come with the paddle shifters as standard equipment. I just completed the retrofit last weekend.

Thanks for that....I'll read up on it and see how it should be done!Neat idea. Might as well get some use out of that space.
And to answer the question in your linked post, it looks quite easy to remove the cd player. Go download the service manual. Looks like you'll need a thin screwdriver or something like that to replace the special tool.
The parchment interior was a major selling point to me, as was the hatchback and sunroof. Finding one so well equipped, in dark blue mica, with only 5K miles, was my good fortune. I actually preferred the automatic transmission, because it has the tachometer front and center, turns lower rpm in top gear than the manual, and gets better highway mpg as a result.OK, my mistake.
