    Default New Member / Gabe / Help! / :)

    Hey guys!
    New member coming in hot!
    Didn't realize I wanted to ever really post but here I am.

    I had previously owned a 2007 Mazda 3 s Touring. Made it to 330,000km.
    LOVED IT.
    Tranny went on me.
    I bought it with tints, window visors, coilovers, wheels and tires.

    Fell in love with Mazda so I went out and bought a 2014 Mazda 3 GS.

    Here she is:

    I really enjoy mazda's design philosophy.


    I need help with a few things. I'm a noob to all of it since I bought my previous Mazda with all things already built in.

    I bought the mazda from the Honda in Whitby.
    There's a small tick that increases with rpms.

    I brought it to Jimmy and he says it's the high presure fuel pump...(i think, that's what i remember hearing).
    It's the skyactiv design.

    I do have like 7-10 days left in the OG powertrain warranty.

    Should I just trust in Jimmy or should i go into a dealership and have them take a look and try to have them replace it.
    I mean if its covered why not? But i've been told $120 just for a diagnosis....?
    Not trying to pay $120 for the to tell me there's nothing wrong with it.
    I want to hold onto my "new" car like I did with my previous.

    I want window visors that fit perfectly. I'm just OCD like that.
    Any recommendations other than OEM? I feel like OEM is always marked up like crazy for no reason.

    Easy example is that front lip.
    OEM $450
    JSPEC $200

    Any recommendations where to go wheel and tire shopping?

    Any recommendations where to go coilover shopping?

    Do any of you have experience with the Corksport SRI?

    THAAAANKS GUYS! Glad to be here.

    One last. Jimmy says it's nothing to worry about.
