Hello all

Hi, new Mazda owner, well, new cuv owner, i normally have sports cars like corvette, trans am, monte carlo SS.
but my wife was recently diagnosed with MS and has balance issues now so getting in a low car is hard for her.
She fell in love with our little red CX3 soon as she saw it, and while not what im used to its really nice to have a awd,
easy to get in and out of vehicle. (plus who knew heated seats where so nice). Now im loving the car just as much.

I build most of my cars so ive been doing little stuff like oem fog light install, armrest, redesigned air box, etc
and i plan on posting some things i learned that hopefully might help some people, i work at Ford so have access
to mazda parts, books, techs and have learned a few things.

Ford held on to its piece of Mazda for one thing, our little Skyactiv engine is
better known to the Ford crowd as Ecoboost. Shhhhhhh

Well, actually it's not the same.
Ecoboost is based on the "old" pre-skyactiv Mazda L-engine, not the newer Skyactiv-G.

And Ford sold the last of it's Mazda shares in 2015 (at that point they owned 2% of Mazda).
