    Thx, yea I needed a car lol, it's surprisingly quick, the torque comes on HARD at 3000 rpm, it doesn't pull like the SI does at the top of the rev range but it does tug on you when you give it throttle. The interior is ridiculously nice as well, I have the GT trim which has some pretty damn...

    It's clearly not as fast as my fb6 was but down low it feels so ready to move that it makes up for it The interior and exterior styling are so superb that it makes me feel like in driving something way nicer than what it's worth

    Good news is I found a black fb6 on Craigslist in my area, same year as my old one lol, so if I don't like the Mazda I can just slide right back in where I left off.

    Weird how everyone seems on the same page about the 10th gen lol If it had 250 hp the turbo lag would be worth it but at 205 the bump in torque is worthless when you realize you have to wait for the turbo to spool up for it. I also noticed that by the time I was reving and having fun I hit the...

    Update: Drove a tenth gen SI today and I hated it, don't know how but the turbo lag and the rev hang combined with the pathetically light clutch turned me off completely from the car. That and I didn't feel that warm fuzzy feeling when I look at it that I got from looking at my 9th and the...

    Tried to take a look at the 10th gens today, but the dealer says they won't be ready to drive for 3-5 more days, they do seem really nice though interior wise, exterior just looks awful compared to the fb6 though...

    Not finding out until tomorrow but it's starting to look likely that it's going to be totaled, I can't even move the shifter in the car which isn't a good sign

    I am in a conundrum I found a 2017 mazda 3 grand touring hatchback with a 6 speed for an excellent price and tons of awesome features But I also found a blue 9th gen fb6 and I get too many fuzzy feelings looking at it What do? =(

    Dammit, I'll probably end up getting a civic hatchback sport manual, it's supposedly really nice but I'll have to reinstall my subwoofer, and the audio system in the sport is likely a downgrade from the 9th gen SI i'm glad everyone is ok but damn does it suck to go out like this.

    Got into an accident, person in front of me rear ended someone, speed limit was 70 and I was about 2-3 car lengths away, didn't have enough time to stop and I ran into the back of them Airbags were amazing, I didn't feel anything upon impact and I think I hit at ~30-40 mph

    Anybody here know anything about subwoofer LPF settings?

    I run an Alpine type S 12" and an equivalent Alpine amp to power it, but recently I've been playing around with the amp LPF from anywhere around 60hz to 140hz, I generally don't play my bass very loud, and I run a flat EQ on the factory head unit (premium audio version) Does anybody know what...

    9th gen sedan dynamat door installation?

    Oh that makes sense, I thought that all the wires were completely sealed in by the bag, but how will I be able to get a (nearly) air tight seal if the dynamat sheets are only 12"x32"?

    9th gen sedan dynamat door installation?

    Yea but I noticed that there are wires still coming through the moisture barrier, how does it hold moisture outside the car if it can leak through?

    9th gen sedan dynamat door installation?

    I looked it up a bit and @MadMike are you saying just rip off the moisture barrier and cover the holes with dynamat instead? Nifty. Are there no complications if the holes are sealed properly?

    9th gen sedan dynamat door installation?

    Huh? I thought the plastic (the bag that webby was referring to) was there to keep moisture out, how would replacing it with dynamat help moisture out as well dampen sound?
  18. Loppysaurusrex

    9th gen sedan dynamat door installation?

    No merely dampen road noise Although as it seem right now I won't be able to adhere any dynamat to any metal surface on the inside of the door without removing the moisture cover, which isn't going to happen.
