I have these roof bars on my 2012 Mazda3 hatch, and I'm happy with it. Price is way cheaper than the Mazda OEM bars. Some wind noise beginning at 40mph, but if you listen to music, it's easily tuned out.

As for the bike rack, you've got a lot of options here, but brand wise you're probably looking at either Thule or Yakima. I went with the Yakima Forklift and I love it. As long as you can easily pop off your front wheel, this is fast and extremely stable (plus if you buy the additional locking mechanism for like $20, the skewer key-locks your fork in place). You can't go wrong with Thule either, but I find Yakima is typically cheaper for a similar product.

u/sup3rmark · 2 pointsr/mazda3

Is it this one? It looks pretty cool, but I don't put a case on my phone (I typically take pretty good care of them) and didn't want to stick a magnet on the back of it... esp since it has a textured back that prob wouldn't hold it very well.

Remarkable Power MZ733E-C 2014-2016 Mazda 3 Fog Lights Clear Lens Bumper Lamps Kit

This is the kit. I wouldn't say it's OEM quality, and I can't give it a full review since I just got it yesterday, but it seems all good right now. The lights are nice and bright and worked right away. You'll also need the light control stalk that has the fog light switch, which is also plug and play.

This is the video I followed for the install.

u/Itz_A_Me_Wario · 2 pointsr/mazda3

Straight swap. It’s also pretty easy to change the bulbs without tearing the entire front end apart. You just need to loosen the under hood fuse box and swing it a couple inches aside to fit your hand in there. The bulbs also have a positive/negative connection that isn’t marked, so if you put them in and they don’t work- just flip the plug. They look fantastic.

u/AgainstFooIs · 1 pointr/mazda3

Get this, I know you have tried something like this before but I promise the spigen one is superior in every way.

  1. The magnet is much more powerful than the other brands and holds it tight, I'm using it for 9 months already and I never had it slip or fall, I have a 6s and I even put the magnetic disc behind my phone case.
  2. The clip is made from a soft silicon rubber so it will not scratch your vents and stays put without moving.
  3. The magnetic disc is super thin (thiner than other brands) if you put it under the case you won't even notice it.
  4. This is so tiny that it doesn't take any space at all and you never have to take it off as it is basically a 1.5 inch circle, if you are like me and don't like uber like cradles and stuff attached to your windshield or glue residue from the other ones.

    The only downside is that it will block the airflow of the vent somewhat when you have the phone attached.

    My second choice would be the proclip but that one is around $60.
u/MonsieurReynard · 1 pointr/mazda3

I bought this for $32 bucks on Amazon and really like it a lot. Fits tight, matches my interior, has been super durable for a year already. Installs in 2 minutes (fits right over existing cover, no stitching required) and doesn't move on the wheel:

I think it looks and feels great. So much so that I bought a backup for when I'm ready to replace it!

u/Solarisphere · 1 pointr/mazda3

I had the same issue and I ended up going for an aftermarket deck and I'm glad I did. I installed it for the aux in, but I ended up not even using it. Instead it automatically pairs with my phone when I turn the car on and there's a mic that you put on the steering column for hands free calling.

I installed an older version of this deck with this dash kit. I also use a magnetic dash mount and it makes for a really clean wireless setup.

Here's a video of it installed. You can change the colours to match the vehicle though.

  • You can adjust the brightness of the instruments and LCD display by turning one of the adjustment sticks (the right one) on the upper side of the instrument panel.

  • You can change the width of the blind spot monitoring system.

  • Enabling "Audio Pilot" turns on active noise cancelling.

  • You can change how the automatic door lock mechanism works in the settings.

  • You can turn on traffic camera warning in the navigation system settings.

  • Turning on sport mode dramatically increases throttle response and holds gears at significantly higher RPM.

  • A 3-minute super easy air filter change to the $50 K&N one can give you 1-2 better MPG and slightly better throttle response.

So it is actually a 3 part ordeal.

The actual fog lights since my car didn't come with them, and the stalk. Then I did some c-shaped drl since I have leds in my high beams and the factory drl doesn't work with leds, but then the c-shaped drl didn't work for a little bit so I bought the drl turn signals, and then the previous c-shaped ones started working again. I will just post all of my mods below:

Fog lamps with brackets :

Light stalk :

C-shaped DRL :

Sequential LED Turn signals with DRL :

9005 LED High Beam :

H11 55W HID Low Beam :

194 LED side marker bulbs (not used but the correct ones if you want yellow, I liked the white and it was what I had when the originals burnt out but didn't ever change them from the above link) :

License plate smoke :

K&N 33-2480 Air Filter :

I had my rims done by a local company, they are the factory 16" painted gloss black. My mazda emblem is actually a long story, but essentially it is just scuffed up with sand paper ready to be painted but I liked the look and stuck it back on the way it is. I have also installed car play, and 3D printed a shift knob. The factory bose system was a little lacking and put a small under seat sub in to help fill the sound, but am still not happy with it, so that's a future project.

Some near future plans for the car include the aero kit, and I'll post the links to those here too:

Front Bumper Lip Air Dam :

Black Mirror caps :

Side skirts :

And the rear diffuser :

3D MAXpider. I bought the complete set in black on Amazon for $118. They fit very well. I took out the OEM carpet mats in the front seats per the instructions. For the rear sets, one is supposed to also remove the carpet mats but the MAXpider mat doesn't extend as far underneath the front seats as I would like. The MAXpider fits just fine on top of the carpet mats in the rear, so I left them. Here's the Amazon link:

I've also ordered the cargo liner for $82, that arrives tomorrow. I chose it over other brands because it folds when needed.

u/nokios · 2 pointsr/mazda3

I'm not sure about 2010, but I got a Rola roof rack for my '12. Works pretty well. I recommend getting a wind-deflector though..

u/TaedusPrime · 1 pointr/mazda3

I bought these for my Gen 2 and love them. They've held up very well, don't move at all and look cleaner than weather tech on top of being cheaper. They should have an option for the Gen 3.

u/goRockets · 1 pointr/mazda3

I added an aux port to my 2006 not too long ago. A ground loop isolator is a must otherwise you'll get a lot of background noise during acceleration and when you charge your device.

I got these parts:

Goliton aux cable for Mazda

3.5mm feed-thru panel mount jack

ground loop isolator

The combination works perfectly. I drilled a hole in the center between the cigarette lighter and the passenger airbag light. There is plenty of space behind it and the part is pretty cheap (less than $20) to buy used on ebay if I must return the car to stock configuration.

u/shark_and_kaya · 2 pointsr/mazda3

I have this it's reliable, cheap, and it works good. It's bit bulky so if you have the correct transmission, you might hit your foot while shifting.

However torque pro app still have log issues and UI is absolute garbage.I wish someone would come up with a better app.

u/knownerror · 1 pointr/mazda3

I bought a Spigen magnetic phone mount for cheap off of Amazon and it works better than I thought it would. It's mounted on the vent just to the right of the steering wheel and only covers about half the vent. Close to perfect positioning.

u/heath_says_wut · 2 pointsr/mazda3

Just don't buy anything that glues to the dash/window (including the Scosche). It will unglue or make a mess from the heat if you're in a hot southern climate. I didn't like the vent mounts either but for the new model you don't have any good dash locations. I went with the spigen. It has a soft rubber surface and won't scratch your vent and the magnetic disc is super thin, I've had a few cheap ones and the difference in quality is huge.

If you don't want to block the vent, get the Proclip, your budget should cover it.

u/flacoginomazda35 · 2 pointsr/mazda3

I got them thru Amazon / link is below.. Easy to install I did it myself
Hope this helps...

u/ali693 · 1 pointr/mazda3

Yes they are plug and play. Never heard of the brand but I got them quick and they have good reviews.

u/phi186 · 2 pointsr/mazda3

almost, my girlfriend got me these, and i love em! very sturdy

i'd post a photo of my mazda3 with them but it's not any better than what the picture is on that link, they look good though!

u/BossMann123 · 1 pointr/mazda3

I got 35 in the front and 20% in the back. The plate relocator is this one It doesn't block the turn signal, it attaches into the toe hook that's on the right side. It's great!

u/SomeBlokeFromAstora · 2 pointsr/mazda3

I've used the iJDMTOY one on my 2017 Mazda 3 Sport GT. Install was easy though I had to tighten the nut behind the plate after a few months. So I just put loctite on it.

u/nhct · 1 pointr/mazda3

Where are you seeing $100?

The exact model you linked is at Amazon for $21.11, with free shipping and 30-day free returns.

There are lots of very similar models on eBay from as low as $11 (search for 'Mazda 3 tow hook license plate'), also with free shipping, with some sellers having sold scores and even hundreds of them, between $11 — $20.

It's not exactly a hard-to-find or high-tech accessory.

Any of them would get the job done, if that clean-grille but off-center look appeals to you.

At $24, one could say it's priced slightly above the going rate, due to the brand name.

u/wyatte74 · 2 pointsr/mazda3

All 4 genuine Mazda All-Weather mats on amazon US are 80 bucks and look quite nice

Mazda All Weather Mats

u/AdwokatDiabel · 2 pointsr/mazda3

Goliton AUX 3.5mm Cable Connect iPod iPhone MP3 Phone Audio to Mazda Car Player (2 Meter Long)

I got this for my 2006 Mazda 3 Hatch, installed in like 20 minutes. Drilled a hole into my glove-box and routed it there.

Honestly, it does the job. There is a barely discernible whine noise in the background that only comes up when heavily accelerating... likely do to the extra electricity the car puts out.

u/BrisingrReborn · 3 pointsr/mazda3

2015 sedan 2.0 auto. Greater than 90% highway. 63 miles.

Was approx 70 degrees today, i would expect it to be even higher in the summer.

Installing Racing beat axleback and a full set of Michelin CrossClimate + this weekend :)

u/wickedzeus · 2 pointsr/mazda3

if you're going to do this, don't forget to pick up a ground loop noise isolator it will get rid of the whirring/static noise you'll inevitably get as you drive. That's the one I used, so I can vouch for it, but there are many other ones out there. I had it paired with this on my 07 (placed it on the front of the center console a few inches under the lip) and it worked well until I switched cars

u/thedramirezx · 1 pointr/mazda3

You can find it HERE

Honestly, I put them on after only owning the car for 1 day so I didn't have time to notice a difference. I would say they likely have a minor effect on noise with the windows down as mentioned below. Mainly got them for the look.

u/BrotherAliMazda · 2 pointsr/mazda3

You can goto an autoparts store and they will read the code for free.

Buy a bluetooth OBD adapter that works with FORScan. This software has ALOT of power and acts like the dealer tools. I reprogrammed my ABS module when I rebuilt my 2014 (replaced module with a used one). Mazda themselves couldnt do it because their software can only writes the software but does not re-write over a module with software already on it.

What I used:

u/RugerRedhawk · 2 pointsr/mazda3

This one coupled with the torque pro app ($5) is a popular yet affordable choice:

u/nacholibreisgod · 1 pointr/mazda3

i got this one for my 2014 mazda 3 it works great provides a lot more grip than the stock steering wheel and it has held up fairly well in the past eight months or so. minor cosmetic damage.

u/reinhardtmain · 1 pointr/mazda3

Are you sure?
In my 06 all i had to do was pull the unit out and directly plug in the adaptor and a filter and I had aux.

u/jarannis · 1 pointr/mazda3

I use the Scosche Magic Mount in a similar location to /u/noncil's Exo mount.

Works better for me because I've got the Note Edge, and most "grippy" mounts or tray mounts don't expand enough in the direction I want them to. Yeah, you do end up sticking a plate to the back of your phone, but it works so well I can't see myself doing it any other way.

u/mythbehaved · 3 pointsr/mazda3

It was this kitAmazon

I think I might try the corksport mount soon because I had to put a rubber shim on the bracket to keep it from spinning easily.

u/Fayt747 · 1 pointr/mazda3

Just moved my license plate to the side on my 2018 Mazda 3 touring hatch.

Here's what I used if anyone's interested. It sticks out by an inch if you look at it from the sides though that's the only dumb part but to me it's worth.

u/CDeansy · 3 pointsr/mazda3

I used this cable for my 06 hatch to get an auxiliary port.

Connects to an empty socket in the back of the head unit is routed to the armrest storage. It is a lot easier to do than you would imagine. There is a few tutorials on youtube.

u/baddst · 1 pointr/mazda3

There's a bunch of options, but for the price you can't beat this one. I had a slatted one and it sucked. There are others but few have adjustable positions. This one worked well because the location can be dialed in by using the different holes and pivoting the frame which is what I needed for my accessory grill lighting. I recommend you use loctite or a rubber washer though.

u/lc7926 · 1 pointr/mazda3

Bluetooth OBD2 scanners are really cheap now. My fiancé (big car guy who does all of our mechanic stuff) just bought this one. He said usually transmission fluid is brown when it’s old and he’s never heard of it being gray, unless metal is in it. It would be worth the $22 for the scanner to find out what’s going on ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

u/boldrthereal · 1 pointr/mazda3

I use the brand ROLA for the roof racks for my2012 sedan. I've had them for almost two years and not one single problem. This one would probably work for your vehicle.

u/mazdapi · 3 pointsr/mazda3

I have a 2008 Mazda3 too. I'm an engineer with audio experience, so hopefully you find this helpful.

If you're using the stock sound system, this device will work fine; it's a ground loop isolator. With the stock sound system, the frequency cutoff is hardly noticeable - even if you are using the AUX IN with a high grade, insulated cable and lossless audio.


If you're going to upgrade the audio system, chances are that the installer will properly ground the audio components, mitigating the issue.

I used the GLI on my stock sound system for 7 years. When I upgraded the tweeters, speakers, and head-unit, I no longer experienced the electrical noise.

u/SpiltColdBrew · 3 pointsr/mazda3

u/wolfej4 · 6 pointsr/mazda3

CarID sells them for about $100.

These are the ones I have. I just had to buy a new turn signal switch from Amazon.

I had a theme going on with my car.

u/senorwhorehay · 1 pointr/mazda3

I have a '16, but I got the interior lights from Amazon.

u/colonelpan1c · 2 pointsr/mazda3

If you can change a light bulb, you can change these out.

u/FfityShadesOfDone · 2 pointsr/mazda3

These are what I used for the running lights. My car already had fog lights and these just replace the bezel. Your mileage may vary if you don’t have a fog light option from the factory.

This was the grille I chose. Replaces everything on the factory grille including the chrome trim that a lot of options leave. If you’re in North America and need a front plate the holes on this do not line up properly and you’ll need an adapter.

u/Scalions · 4 pointsr/mazda3

I have been using the Spigen magnetic vent mount for a year in 3 different cars. It has been amazing in each one. The one I linked is a 2-pack, but they sell individual ones too. I've used a couple different mounts before but none compare to this. Some people don't like mounting their phone on a vent since it may block some airflow and/or heat the phone, but I haven't had any problems with either.

u/thGuttedFish · 4 pointsr/mazda3

Fortunately you don't need to cut into the wires. I found a thread a while back on the Mazda 3 Revolution forums where they used a PAC to add a sub. I did it on my 2015 iTouring and gave it a ton more low end that the Bose simply cannot create.

u/the262 · 1 pointr/mazda3

I got a 2017 and plan to upgrade the stock speakers and add an amp/sub.

To connect to your stock head unit without splicing wires you can use a PAC AOEM-MAZ2:

There are tweeters on the dash in the top right/left corners.

There are woofers on each of the 4 doors.

You will have to use a dremel to cut them out of the plastic Mazda housing, and your new speakers can be glued/screwed into place. You can google around for instructions and YouTube videos.

You can use whatever amp/sub you want. Run cables under the door trim up to the dash. The power cable can go through the firewall via the wiring harness entry point.

Doing any non-official Mazda modifications on your car will void your warranty for whatever the dealer can prove they caused issues with. Having someone else perform the install will not change this. However, just because you install new speakers/sub does not mean your whole warranty is automatically voided. Likely just any claims you would have about audio/electrical issues could be disputed by the dealer.

u/s0n1c7 · 1 pointr/mazda3

Same here but the buzzing noise bothered me a lot so I end up getting these.

u/barazzz · 2 pointsr/mazda3
