Anyone owners of a Mazda6 and goes on car forums?

Hiya, just wondered if anyone here owns a (pre 06 model of) mazda6 and is regularly on a mazda 6 forum? Im trying to find one but not much luck,

Only one I've found was this:
http://www.mazda6forums.co.uk/forum/

but they seem a bit too OEM... whereas I prefer to go on forums to go find out about OEM+ mods/tips/tricks, if one gets my drift....

Question im looking for atm is RE: Bose CD Player system, does it have AUX in or anything like that, if not is there fascia plates for custom audio system? (I have an expensive stereo unit planning to come off my old car and wanting it in the new.).

Thanks for your time!

Hello,

I own a 55 plate Mazda 6 TS2 :)

Mine came with a factory BOSE system. It has no AUX.
(although i did make a slight mod and used the cig lighters power to add on a ipod FM transmitter, i hid it behind the stero and feed the lead up to the top box) works pretty well, no distoration.

If your planing on putting in your own system, then you would need to order a insert, i belive you can get these in any good car retial shop.
like halfords etc..

Heres a pic of what i have in there:

Nice, its clever how it has that compartment for misc things. how are you finding the 6? Im contemplating on a TS2 atm, just trying to find a right price, although TS's are about £1k cheaper atm :-( not sure £1k is worth the BOSE system......

Edit: Is it a 7 speaker system? 1 on the front, 4 front sides and 2 rear sides? Would you know if it has a separate amp for the speakers or is it built into the original system?

Oh, i plan to put a screen where that cubby hole bcos i have a video output on my stereo.. heh heh heh.. :santa: fix a little motor behind so it'll open up automatically when the car switches on.. :gift:

Woo, a thread for me. You can get proper screens for the 6, the existing cubby hole screws off and the new one goes in, you can get just sat nav ones, or ones that can be used with an in car computer.

See this on ebay http://preview.tinyurl.com/m5x8nd

The bose system is fitted with a sub in the boot, that fits in the spare wheel in the wheel well, with 'independent set-up for maximum performance' I have a TS, but with all the extras, 6 CD Changer, Cruise Control, Spoiler etc.

There are few forums out there, the biggest is http://forum.mazda6club.com/index.php? but it's world based.

That sounds sweet, and there was me thinking of buying twin square 10s for the car.. :-D I am guessing you dont use forums? its a shame really, every other car i had has some sort of helpful forums to do little things to the car to make it that little bit more special. Care to show off your car with a pic?

Im not sure on the OEM spoiler of the 6, was thinking of finding a slightly bigger one with a brake light, but research for that will come after i actually get the car :whistling:. Perhaps a rear splitter just to finish off the rear end, I think the front looks pretty much perfect as is really!

Right, I shall have a rummage on that forum (Thanks for the link! :thumbsup:) and report back.


Edit: Spoiler which look something like this will be a little tasty..! but that looks like the saloon version...

i have a mazda 6! one of the front headlight bulbs have gone.... is there any special bulb I gotta look out for? and how easy is it to replace? Ive checked a few sites... one mentioned you need to take the whole bumper out!

Its the light that has a two bulbs.. park and brighter... I dunno the car savvy term for it!

its not the halogen full beam light!

Any help will do!
