Any one know about getting windows tinted?
I live in Pa so they can't be too dark.
#3 of 629 Mazda 5 accessory list
Jul 23, 2005 (10:09 am)
I am very interested in purchasing a 5 and asked my salesman about accessories. His answer was that the accessory list for the 5 hasn't been issued yet "but it should be the same as the 3". I would like to have the auto-dimming rear view mirror with home link which is available on some 3 models but not avaiable on those models with rain sensing wipers. The fact that Mazda is selling the cars without issuing an accessory list is very aggravating.

Same here. I went to the dealer and they didn't even have a cargo net in stock. They don't even know about the cargo cover accessory part #ICC because it didn't show in their computer.
But I did find this site in Japanese, but easy to use, where you can tune your Mazda 5, etc... with different accessories. Check it out at:
You can print out the parts list at the end of the tuning (just try one of the buttons on the top). The roof rack for the Mazda 5 is part #EHOR for example.
Unfortunately, you can't get them here in North America as far as I know. I'm interested in the Mazda 5 Thule roof rack, but couldn't find the same roof rack in Thule's web site. Thule doesn't even have any fittings for the Mazda 5 yet. I think it's a special roof rack made specifically by Thule for the Mazda 5. My closest lead is that it looks like the roof carrier for other Mazda vehicles from the Mazda UK site:
If you guys have any leads on this, please let me know. I'd appreciate it very much.
Here's another Mazda 5 accessories list for the UK. I was surprised that sports bumper,etc... in North America are accessories in the UK. But I still want the roof rack...oh well:

I was reading an article that said Mazda rushed this to market because of US gas prices being so high. I'll see if I can find it and post a link here. Apparently we were supposed to get them in August when the advertising and accessory pipeline was full. I have to admit I was surprised to see these at the dealer when I hadn't seen any ads for them.

We just bought $20 all weather mats from Costco for the first and second row since the black mats get dirty easily. The third row is always folded anyway. Vacuumed the carpet and upholstery today and placed the cheap but great quality all weather mats. We also have 3 plastic folding baskets to put groceries in...from the Total Trolley as seen on tv product. The baskets so far helps the black cargo area stay clean.
The dealer said we can order the Mazda 5 all weather mats for $48 (their first quote was $89). They couldn't find the retractable cargo cover part #ICC that we were interested in so decided not to order anything from them yet.
Hopefully they'll have more accessories available this August. Thanks for the explanation.

Looking to connect my Ipod to the Mazda5.
Had no joy with the iTrip as Toronto has overpopulated the airwaves with crap.
Anyone no the best way to get a line-in on the Mazda 5 or which one of the Denison Ice type products is the best.

I currently use the $25 iTrip, but i find it difficult to use at times and sound quality isn't that great. I've seen the Monster iCriuze in a few stores link title
Unfortunately it only works on Mazda trucks and it's also expensive. If anyone else has a solution please let us know.
The other issue I have is with the stock speakers. They aren't quite up to the quality as the stock speakers in our Mazda6. They offer very little mid range sound and mediocre upper end, low end? don't thing so. I don't know what size the speakers are either, I'm guessing 5 1/4, maybe smaller. I do know they need to be replaced, so if anyone has any info or has already replaced them and can offer advice please post.

I've looked at these 2 sites, but now willing to try it yet without a service manual. One is specifically for the RX-8 but maybe the same with the 5 somewhat if you can find the solder points for left, right, & ground (you then need to order or create your silent CD) and the second site does not have support for the 5 yet.
I'm also looking and will let you know if I find anything else that doesn't use FM modulation. I'm also thinking there's probably a way to hook up something to the "Media" button on the 5's center console. If you guys have some ideas where to find a service manual for the 5, that'll probably help.
#10 of 629 Online Accessories for Mazda 5
Aug 05, 2005 (9:00 pm)
Anybody looking for a moonroof wind deflector, cargo nets, all-weather mats, etc... for the Mazda 5? I found this online site:
I don't know if the site is okay It's about the $4 to $8 over invoice price (see invoice prices at 2006 Mazda MAZDA5 optional equipment at Edmunds). Probably about the same you can get at the dealer if you ask for a discount. My dealer quoted me $48 for all-weather mats, at least there's no shipping cost.
