Has anyone driven their NEW Mazda3?

What modifications have you done to improve its performance, audio system and appearances?

Do you mind sharing?

I called the MM service supervisor a week ago and ask him a few questions. He told me that there are no specific requirements to run-in(prime) the engine, however to be on the safe side he said, for the first 1000 km we should limit the rpm to 2800. No hard acceleration and do not stay at a constant speed too long during the run-in. Vary your speed during this period.
Furthermore he told me it is not necessary to rust-proof the car as the current technology for the galvanised metal is very good. It is also not necessary to apply paint sealant(like system6). Putting a sound dampener will only reduce any noise marginally as the car is already silent enough.

I'll do K&N filter when it is avaliable in the market. Recently I had taken out my air filter for my soon to be scrap car and the gain in performance is amazing :)

What's a voltage stabilizer? How much does it cost? Does it affect the performance of the car? :?:

Haslan are you in Pasir Ris on Friday evening? Saw a Nordic Green M3 sedan in my carpark.

Genki01 where do you stay can pay you a visit to view your car?
I was not there on Friday evening, but I was there on Thursday evening at Blk 543 Pasir Ris for not more than 10 mins.
I think it might be someone else. Now I can see quite frequently MZ3 on the road. So far Silver,another Nordic greeen, Sherbert green, black and Titanium grey. Yet to see Yellow, W blue and Red.
I've clocked my 1K already and now enjoying every minute of my ride.

Something bad happen yesterday. I was reversing into the lot at my home when i knocked lightly the rear into a rough wall. There were some small scratches on the rear bumper but there are a lot more scrstches in my heart.
:cry:

Hi,

Check the discussion in the Singapore Mazda Forum on this topic.

Think it is the latest item for cars together with grounding kit.

2 options.

1) do the hack on the stock HU so that it can accept an AUX in

2) buy the MP3 HU from MM for about $600-800
