You drive a 3s hatch, dont you already have those sail panels? Also, any dealer should have them. If not, PM one of our dealership sponsors.

I found a pair of these on eBay a few weeks ago. I bought them as a backup for mine that I installed a new set of tweeters in and painted a black gloss. The thread should be around here somewhere. I would just keep an eye on eBay if any pop up. I hear they are pretty expensive if you buy them from the dealer.

Hey thats one of my pics haha. There used to be a few people on the forum that sold them. Cost me less then 15 for blank panels. The blanks work alot better since you are cutting your own hole.

the blank ones are factory style. The 2.0L models dont come with factory tweeters, so they use blank sail panels. As I already said, any dealer should have these.

I just wanted to avoid the dealership on the panel with the tweeters because I know the cost a lot of $$$$$

IIRC that's because you can only buy them with the factory tweeters already installed.

I bought a pair of the blank sails from a forum sponsor. They shipped quickly and were only about $12.

I'll look for the part number.....

BP4L-69-171E
BP4L-69-111E

You need to make sure that you buy the right ones. They won't match the part for your car's vin if you have a 3s, so be sure that you get the ones for the i model.

Any questions you have, ask Jason from

(that link is for www.onlinemazdaparts.com)

Be careful when you install your tweeters, because if they are deeper than the factory ones, they may hit the electrical plug for the power mirrors.

I have a 3s hatch and when I went to the dealership to buy some blank panels (custom job), I asked how much the panels are that you have there and they quoted me a price of $40 per panel. The blank ones I got were only $9 a panel and they look stock after the install my rooommate did...except they now have Alpine in them :)

Great info here, should be made into a sticky. Those part #s and the link to the forum supporter saved me time and money over my local dealer.

BTW, I was able to put a set of PPI (356cs) tweeters right in the middle of the sail panel without interfering with the power mirror plug.
