Mazdaspeed3 or MPS gen. 3?

June 26, 2013 was revealed to the world a new face of Mazda 3. Designers scaled the heights and it becomes a very attractive compact, designed with a new Mazda's philosophy: KODO - "Soul of Motion". I like the exterior and interior design, which is entirely consistent. I also like the fact that the new Mazda has already known from BK model round knobs controls of air conditioning and they changed location of the control buttons on the steering wheel, which was surfeit in BL model.

Summer setup for 2013

At the end of 2012 I bought a new set of rims for my Mazdaspeed. They were laying in the garage and waiting for spring to replace a set of winter wheels. I would not like to wear summer tires for new rims earlier, because I want to shift tires pressure sensors to new rims and then wear summer tires. So I went to the tire service for replace wheels, and by the way I cleaned brake calipers, replaced valves in the tire pressure sensors, and the old rims commited to the restoration. How do you like my MPS with new set of rims? ;)

COBB AccessPORT goes Global, support for Mazda 3/6 MPS

On October 2, 2012 COBB Tuning announced that AccessPORT will support European versions of turbocharged Mazda 3 and 6 vehicles. This is very good news for Mazda3 MPS and Mazda6 MPS owners, because from this day they can tune their cars using AccessPORT predefined maps and use many features delivered by AccessPORT, like monitoring, logging and so on.
Below is note from COBB Blogs:

Brake replacement - discs, pads, painting of calipers

Due to the fact that the discs and pads on my Mazda was not in good condition, I decided to replace the entire set of brakes and the opportunity to paint calipers. Because I do not know any garage that would do it properly and comprehensively for reasonable money, I decided to do it by myself. After consulting with other MPS owners I bought Hawk HPS pads kit and OEM discs (the same as Mazda's authorized service use). I used paint in spray, which I bought in the paint store, said to be tested and resistant to temperature.

COBB Tuning AccessPORT for Australian MAZDA3 MPS & MAZDA6 MPS

On May 14, 2012 COBB Tuning announced that AccessPORT is now available for Australian Mazda3 MPS and Mazda 6 MPS. Below is note from their site:

Mazdaspeed3 Hooning - the beginning

This is one of my first videos directed and edited by me, so be tolerant ;)
I mixed up different views, effects, motions and so on.

Economy and ergonomy - Mazdaspeed3 on the road

Mazdaspeed3 is a hot-hatch, so you should not expect low fuel consumption. On the highway, with cruise control, I lowered fuel consumption to 9.5 l/100km (25 mpg). In the city my Mazdaspeed3 consumes about 13 l/100km (18 mpg). Now someone will say: "phi, my diesel consumes 4.5 (52 mpg) on highway and 7 (33 mpg) in the city". OK, feel free, but remember one thing: hot-hatch is not for cost-effectivity! ;)

Mazdaspeed3 / Mazda 3 MPS

The FWD MPS is based on the 5-door hatchback version of the Mazda3, rather than the sedan, and it features the same 2.3L turbocharged DISI (direct injection spark ignition) four-cylinder found in the MazdaSpeed6, although detuned to a still respectable 246 hp and 184 ft-lbs. of torque. Thankfully there’s a limited slip diff included in the package. In addition to the MS6’s engine, the MS3 also gets its six-speed standard transmission.

The suspension has been beefed up and is supported by extra bracing to improve chassis rigidity. Mazda estimates the MS3 will enjoy 60 percent more roll stiffness than the standard version. The brakes have also grown, with the vented front discs clocking in at 12.6 inches and the rears 11 inches.

The front end conveys the corporate “Zoom-Zoom” message with flared fenders draping 18-inch wheels, a power dome hood and that gaping lower grille. Out back there’s a large diameter tailpipe and roof spoiler, as well.
