bassbound - 3 sedan 2005

Hi there,

i'm new to this forum so i will introduce myself a little bit.
my origin is from the Netherlands or holland, 28 years old and 8 year Mazda fan

first Mazda was an 323f, which i customized to my own taste, before;


and after 7 years i still have it and looks like this;








the speclist is long
i had 2 more 323f's but sold them and 3 days ago i bought my Original, Mazda dealer maintenanced, 70.000km Mazda 3 sedan!



now the silver 323f must make place for it's younger brother so it is for sale but it's better because i don't have much time for him anymore.

my plans with the 3 is to fit the audio system with dvd player in it, and maybe some xenon and other small details.

sorry fot the bad english but i hope you like my introduction.
questions are welcome

greetings Sonny.

If you mean where to route the power cables, few options depending on your vehicle and how big of wire.
1. If you have an automatic, easy spot is to go through the plug where the clutch pedal would otherwise be. Should be a little plastic plug on the firewall.

2. You can fit an 8 gauge (some say 4 gauge, I don't see how) through the grommet on the driver side where the hood cable passes through.

3. For large cables, 4 gauge and larger, only really convenient spot is on the passenger side firewall where the main harness passes through and ends up behind the glove box. Should be room there for at least 1, possibly 2 runs of 0/1 or 0 gauge wire.

Yeah, the issue is there are like 5-10 intros a day so people get tired of checking each one out to say hi... especially because most don't of the posters are hit and run and don't end up sticking around anyway =/
