Hello Peter and greetings to all others. This is Ray from Oklahoma checking a bit belatedly after already making a few posts.

Thinking how good a red CX-3 might look parked in the drive with my blue CX-5.

I am in Perth Western Australia. I ordered a pearl white FWD Petrol Maxx (I like their rims, don't need fog lights, leather, climate control, rain sensing wipers etc save $4k on the model up) I ordered the safety pack with it.

It is due to be built in June so I would expect delivery in July. Two things I am waiting to find out are if you need an Iphone or such device plugged in to access the music streams they advertise as being available (Pandora, aha and STITCHER) or do they just come through the car system?
Also with these cars that turn the engine off at stand still is it better still to putt putt slowly rolling up to a stop at a set of lights say or zoom up to them to come to a standstill?

CX-3 will definitely stand out with it's newer design and a red that really pops, for me that would be the case, not sure about others!

Hello from Finland.

I still have to wait for about 8 weeks before I get my CX-3.
I have already bought first parts from ebay for my new ride: center armrest and mudflaps.

Hello, Brian from Southern Maine.

I put a down payment on a CX-3 so i think that a warrants an intro. I would love to see more pics of CX-3's with mudflaps. The only one's i've seen are closeups.

Hello from Geneva.

We've taken delivery of our cx-3 Ambition yesterday. It's our first Mazda and first AWD. It's a lovely metallic brown, making a nice change from the mandatory Swiss colour choice of white, silver or black.

It's replaced our super reliable Toyota Auris and will spend the winter in the Jura and Alps loaded up with our kids (cost centres 1 and 2) and their skis.

Next search is for roof bars and spare steel wheels. Looking forward to contributing to the forum.

Hello from Connecticut. I have been posting on CX3forum but neglected to put in my intro so here goes. Purchased a Ceramic Metallic GT with parchment interior. Been enjoying it since driving it off the lot last week. Getting lots of very positive comments from both friends and strangers. Waiting for the 600 mile break-in to be over before pushing it but can tell it handles well. Now just need Mazda to update their website to include CX-3 so that I can register as a Mazda owner.

Hi!! I recently purchased a 2016 CX3. Absolutely love it.
I just recently had a remote starter installed. Not happy!!! They failed to tell me that you only get one Fob. Once you start the car with the remote and then open the door; the engine stops. You then have to restart the car again. I had it installed at Mazda. This cost me a whooping 900.00. To me it doesn't make sense that you have to start your car again once you open the door. You have to press two different buttons on the remote starter to start car. I have asked for them to have it removed and asked for a reimbursement. I highly doubt I will see this. Can you please let me know if you have a remote starter and what you think of it. I have the PZ170-02021. It has 5 different buttons on it; and 2 of them aren't programmed for any use. I have had 4 other vehicles with remote starters and never experienced any of these problems. They tell me its a safety feature for the engine to stop once you open the door.

:)

I was the first to buy one at the Tustin dealership in California near the end of August. I bought the AWD Grand Touring Soul Red version. It is a great vehicle with only one downfall so far - I tried ordering a homelink mirror and was told it was not compatible with the Grand Touring. Anyone know of any workarounds? I also wish you could order a version that was completely electric...

Welcome Brent. They are great vehicles. The one downfall they have as you stated is no Homelink. There is a thread on here from a couple people, myself included discussing Homelink mirrors. So far no solution. Thought about slitting the sun visor and installing one of the three button Homelink transmitters, but the visor doesn't look like it can be separated.

Just purchased a deep crystal blue AWD GT with the tech package for my wife. She loves it! After doing a little research here I was able to do a cash deal for $850 off of MSRP. I previously owned an RX8 for about 9 years and was very happy with it. Thought we'd try another Mazda. Looking forward to learning even more about the CX3 here in the future....
