There are a lot of banners right here in the website that can get you to where you want to go... whether it is performance related like you want, or interior/exterior parts.
Mazda is owned by Ford... so therefore, the Focus is the Mazda3's "cousin" if you will. That is why you will see a lot of Focus stuff with Mazda3 stuff.
Hope this helps :D

the mazda shares its platform with the ford focus as well as a volvo.

And what he said too. I really like the fact that we share the same assembly line as a Volvo. It makes the 3 one of the safest compacts out there on the road.

True that, I just got my 3 and to the people that i've shown i always mention volvo which makes it sound 1000x better than it already is, and it's pretty much the best car out there :]

Only the European Focus shares the C1 platform with the Mazda3. The US Focus is a big piece of crap by comparison.

you're an idiot. just because the platform on the us focus is different doesn't mean the car is crap. what is your experience with the focus? i owned one for 5yrs and it was a great car. now that they have the duratec, the car is even better.
lets not make comments about a car being crap without a little knowledge about it and it's obvious successful track history.

We bought a Focus new in '01 and still own it. Except for a few details here and there I think it is a great car and tons of fun in the twisties.

Well, that still doesn't help the fact that it's ugly. :(

I'm sorry. I'm re-reading this the night after and.. sorry to thread jack and all.
I was tired.

no, they should be listed for the 3. some parts will work on the 3 and focus and will both have a listing.
