    Mazda5 Wheel Fitment & Photo Guide

    Installed my RX-8 wheels this weekend. I have MS3 brakes and new struts/shocks to go on when I have a long weekend. I'm thinking I wlll install some springs as well, the RX-8's increased the ride height much more than I was expecting.

    Mazda5 Wheel Fitment & Photo Guide

    Yay i'm back. I picked up some RX-8 with new 225-40 tires this weekend. I've seen people mention putting spacers on in the rear, is that a necessity, or is that for a more flush look?

    Lease is up in a year, what next?

    So, I have a lease that is ending in a year. I have one child, and we are hoping for another on, in the not so distant future. I have always been anti CUV, and no desire for a MiniVan, but I want something large enough for a dog crate. So that leaves me with, an E Class wagon(3-4 years old...

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    They are not. Special Mazda financing(financing is how they make money outside of the shop), and selling a CX-5 below sticker, they are NOT making money. Selling new cars is so cutthroat for dealers, they really are making very little. But there is nothing wrong with that! Sounds like a...

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Where I live, Virginia, but right outside of DC, if pay sales taxed based on the state you title the car. DC and MD paid MUCH more in sales tax, but in VA you pay a property tax every year you own the car. Give and take i guess.

    Which new 19" tires to buy?

    even if you work at one, I would say to get far, far away from a dealership on tires. Even when I worked for one, they tried to rip me off on services. One time I needed tires, the service manager was nice enough to tell me not to get tires from a dealership. That was just my experience...

    Financing new CX-5 Question

    I sold cars for a year, Mazda included. Mazda uses a "customer cash" offer, and not a "rebate." A manufacture rebate HAS to be offered when it is available(Nissan is this way). A "cash" type offer, including loyalty, does not HAVE to be offered. The dealer can hold on to it if the consumer...
