Welcoming Our New Partners of The CorkSport Shop Program!

What is CorkSport Up to?!

We know you’ve been seeing the social media posts calling for US Performance Installation Shops to contact us. So, as a customer, you have likely been reaching out to your local shop and telling them to call in or head to our link in order to get more info!

First off: A big THANK YOU to those who recommended their favorite shops, and to those Shops who have understood what we are about and got started in an awesome community partnership with CorkSport!

We’re excited to experience the support that has been passed along to the community, as well as to other small businesses through these partnerships.

We’re continuing to work with the Mazda Community to build, expand, and grow the number of enthusiasts out there. In doing this, the partnerships we are building will help the ‘newest generation’ of Mazda enthusiasts to get started somewhere. With the help of a local shop, they can learn what they need to know, have a trusted place to take their car, and find themselves inspired by the work they do.

The New CorkSport 2010-2013 Mazdaspeed 3 Radiator Panel

Who said engine bays don’t need to be customized?

Introducing the CorkSport Core Support Cover for 2010-2013 Mazdaspeed 3! This new radiator panel can clean up your engine bay, and make it pop, with just a 30-minute installation.

New Mazdaspeed 3 Radiator Panel

Guaranteed to be a perfect fit, this radiator panel was designed using a 3D coordinate measuring arm and CAD modeling software. The 3D arm is used to gather the exact measurements of the vehicle and then inputs those measurements directly into our CAD modeling software. From there, we designed a prototype and began the iterative test and fit process.

Designing the Mazdaspeed 3 Radiator Panel

Each piece is CNC laser cut from a 5052 aluminum sheet and powder-coated with a durable textured finish. This finish is resistant to scratching, chipping, color fade, and has a satin look to it, which can make your whole engine bay as stunning as the rest of your Mazdaspeed 3.

And did we mention the best part? It only takes a few minutes to install, adding an extra level of detail that every Mazda head deserves. Our radiator panel is currently available in ruby red and charcoal black, and it’s only $89.99, so order yours today, here.

No stitching required! The CorkSport Performance Steering Wheel was designed to be a direct OEM replacement. It works flawlessly with the OEM steering column, covers, button panels, and airbag for a stress-free 30 minute installation. Check out the images below: On the left shows exactly what you would receive in the package. On the right is a fully assembled steering wheel with all the OEM components.

Installing Mazdaspeed 3 Steering Wheel

Now I have to admit, when this product idea (Big thanks to Brett Ross!) came across my desk, I was a bit skeptical. I’m not one to spend money on aesthetics on my Mazdaspeed 3. So we got a prototype manufactured, and I installed it in my car to begin the R & D process. Within minutes, I was sold—and not just by how good it looked in my 09’ MS3, but by how much more connected I felt with the car.

Mazdaspeed 3 Steering Wheel for Better Driving Experience

While driving I saw the value in a performance steering wheel—things like the hand wrapped and stitched leather that has a slight texture and plush feel to it. The perforated leather in the high use areas is a great addition so your hands won’t get clammy on spirited drives. The wheel diameter is the same, but the thickness of the wheel has been increased, which is much more comfortable for long drives and canyon carving. The flat bottom gives it a more aggressive feel and actually makes it easier to get in and out of the car since I’m 6’ 2” tall. All that said, probably the most exciting feature of the CorkSport Performance Steering Wheel are the aggressive thumb grooves. These help you lock your hands in place, giving you more confidence in the twisty roads and while fighting the lovely torque steer.

Why You Need a New Mazdaspeed 3 Steering Wheel

Trust me when I say, you need to try the CorkSport Performance Mazdaspeed 3 Steering Wheel. You will be pleasantly surprised.
