Just picked up a 2018 3 Hatchback in Titanium Flash Mica, or Brown, for my wife on 50 year anniversary. Replaced a 2007 CX3 with 140k miles on it and except for the timing gear fiasco which I got reimbursed, had 0 problems with it. Also have a BMW 135IS vert. Where is a good place to pick up some accessories like cargo mats, floor mats and other stuff.

I got my floor mats off amazon, but the trunk mat from a mazda dealer. I did not like the Mazda floor mats, the premium ones do look good thought.

Welcome to the forum. Bought all my accessories from the dealer but from what I heard it's much cheaper buying here than in the US. 50 years with one woman...congratulations to you both as it takes 2 to tango. lol If you have been married 50 years you must be an old guy like me. I'm 70. Happy motoring from Thailand.

Welcome parnet17! Congrats on 50 years and nice present for your wife.

I drew up a list of Mazda accessories I wanted, walked to the parts counter and told them I am buying them somewhere within the next few hours, and if you match the best price (having done extensive “homework” first), here’s my credit card (with my card being waved in front of them).

They said yes, giving me pricing 25-30% off list on the bigger items, 20% minimum. They made money on me, I got good pricing, they are friends now.

Thanks guys, Wife is great 2 weeks after I retired packed my sleeping bag, tent, coffee pot in my BMW 135 convertable and went on a 1 month camping trip out west, did most of the National Parks, Pacific Coast Hgy to the Grand Canyons. Wife's idea of camping is a Holiday Inn. If you ever get a chance check out Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizonia

Welcome, and congratulations on your 50th anniversary.

Cargo tray I bought from the dealer as it was the best design and value I could find. SP25 floor mats came with my car (demo model) though I have seen genuine mats on Ebay for less than the dealer price. Mudflaps from ebay, which are chinese knock-offs but great fit and quality. Windscreen sun shade (necessary where I live) from my local auto parts retailer.
