Congrats on the new 3! I'm thinking the springs should fit, but not 100% positive. And as long as Mazda kept the bolt pattern the same, which I'm almost certain they did, the RX8 wheels will fit without any issues...well except for a bit of loss in the MPG that is. :tongue:

The suspension should be carry over from the before, the only thing that was changed is the engines

Does anyone know if the Skyactiv GT model has the advanced keyless feature? Mazda's car builder page says it does but the specs PDF says it is only available on the 2.5 GT.

Didn't Mazda redesign the rear suspension on this for a better ride? Or was that only on the Mazda6 SkyActive prototype they were demoing?

I am referring to the keyless start/advanced keyless entry features, not just the regular keyless entry.


Also, sorry if I hijacked this thread.:shuriken:

I thought I read somewhere the rear suspension components are completely different from the regular MZ3.

Can somebody with a 2012 post an up-skirt pic of the rear of their car so we may compare?
