Vehicle Entertainment / Navigation Systems / Re: BOSE speakers vs regular
« Last post by Ian345 on Yesterday at 11:18:28 AM »

Tough one to answer.

I have a 2 month old 3 Sport Nav with the Bose System.

My personal view on the Bose - At low volumes (background music and can still talk to passengers), it seems to lack mid range, biased towards treble and bass - but seems to have improved over time. The deep bass thump at low volumes is a bit distracting.

Winding it up, so the sound fills the car (but not deafening), the sound is very good. The mid range seems to be much better.

With such a premium sound system - I find it surprising that there are very few adjustments available. No decent equaliser adjustments.

For a car - definitely good. But would depend on the type of music and levels you will want.

Hope that helps.
Exterior Trim / Wiper arms ???

After taking off both wiper arms I've found that the splines are , well gone . Basically totally smooth hence the clonk I'm getting on the blade sweep.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the price I've found so far on the web is £75 each 😨😨
Question is has anyone found if you can get pattern ones or a better price than that shock ..
Cheers ..

That's a nice car, the Three fastbacks seem much better proportioned than the Sixes!

Hi, Are the Bose speakers which you get on some models a noticeable improvement on the standard set? I'm not fussed about deafening people at traffic lights, nor roaring through the drive-thru with the drum&bass pumping... But I'm a muso, so a nice round sound is pleasing to my ears :)

I've been using Imgur for ages but even that is annoying now as they force album other pics on you sometimes in the name of things social.

Hi all, I've been wanting to get a Mazda 3 for a couple of years now.

Since my current car is on its last legs (...or wheels), then now is the time, know exactly what we're after so just a case of trawling the net and local showrooms to find a nice clean model...

1.6, 2009 or newer, TS2 or better  ;)

I've been stalking the forums anonymously for a little while, and there's plenty of good advice on here which will no doubt come in very handy over the next few years.

Look forward to talking more,

The Civic went a long time ago. The wife was pregnant, so needed something with a big boot etc.
