Hi Everyone,

Picked up a 2011 Mazda3 Sport Hatchback in white Saturday, pretty sweet car :)

Will be looking to fix a bunch minor interior cosmetic issues after carmax does the initial requests for me!

Anyone install those door sills from ebay? Not sure if it will help cover up the minor damage to the paint there/if it will look good?

Additionally, not sure how soon i should dump the oil with the recommended mobil 1 syn 0w20 and extended life filter, what about stock AT fluid?

Welcome to the forum. I have the OEM door sill plates and they do cover the scratches and prevent more. I change my oil every 6000km. I would dump the existing oil if there is no records of last change or the oil looks dirty. I don't think there is a recommended interval for the transmission but to be safe I would change it at 100,000km. Hope this helps.
