Sometimes Form is more important than Function…and sometimes we find features in a vehicle that are not that useful to us. One of those features happens to be the rear wiper assembly. We felt this way and many in the community have informed us of this as well.
With that, we now have Rear Wiper Delete Kits for the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th Generation Mazda 3 hatchbacks.
If you happen to live in one of the fortunate states that don’t get a lot of rain or find yourself not using your rear wiper very often, this is the kit for you. The CorkSport Rear Wiper Delete Kit completely removes the wiper arm and the motor assembly. This shaves weight (about 2 pounds) from your car and gets rid of the unsightly rear wiper arm.
The delete “plug” in the kit is manufactured from 6061-T6 aluminum and finished with a black anodized coating then laser engraved with a sleek CS logo. While this is a subtle mod for your Mazda, we are always shocked at how much better the rear end looks afterwards.

Every time you drive your Mazda you directly interface with four critical controls; seat, pedals, shifter, and the steering wheel. These control interfaces give you tactile feedback of your driving experience, so why not get the best feedback possible?
Take your driving experience to the next level
We introduce to you the racing inspired and genuine leather clad performance steering wheel from CorkSport Mazda Performance. We are so excited to bring this option to the community, to give you the opportunity to take your driving experience to the next level.
When we set out to develop a performance steering wheel for the facelift 3rd GEN Mazda 3 we had to define the major attributes needed: Performance, Style, Fitment. Without these what is the point?
Performance: While the OEM Mazda wheel has a nice shape to it we wanted to push this further with a more aggressive racing inspired style, deep thumb grooves, and the option for genuine leather or alcantara inserts. This gives you the choice to fit your style and the confidence on the track, autoX, or back roads. Sweaty palms? Don’t worry, the high contact area uses perforated genuine leather to help your hands breathe…we got you Fam.
Style: We’ll say this again, Mazda did a pretty good job on the higher trim level wheels, but if you have a lower trim level with the vinyl/plastic wheel it just looks MEH. You know what we mean. Step up your game with the CorkSport Leather Steering Wheel. It looks so good through the window, even better right in your face, and feels fantastic in your hands.
Genuine leather and/or alcantara, aggressive thumb grooves, and red stitching just bring the whole interior together and to the next level.
Fitment: This one is a BIG DEAL for two reasons.
When a part fits correctly it installs easily. We don’t want you to fight with the install or have to come up with some disconnecting hub or whatnot like other “racing” wheels. This is a 100% new casting that retains all the OEM connections and fitment.
While we do use true racing steering wheels with the quick disconnect hubs; these are only on our dedicated track cars with tons of other safety equipment. Your car is your daily and your weekend toy. We will not compromise your safety so we designed a performance steering wheel that retains all the controls and airbag like the OEM steering wheel.
Alright, let’s pull these three back together. Racing inspired performance steering wheel that uses genuine leather and gives you the option for alcantara inserts, form follows function because it looks great from the driver’s point of view or any point of view, and you get this without compromising your safety or losing your quick access features on the steering wheel.
Hold on…there is one thing…
If you have a heated steering wheel from the factory you will lose that feature. We investigated adding this feature (and we still can if there is enough demand), but damn it is really expensive. Let us know in the comments and drop us some info in this link if you really want a heated option. I WANT A HEATED STEERING WHEEL
Lastly, we want to mention this; this is can be a tuff performance modification to justify trust me, but once you lay your hands on the wheel and take your first apex you will be sold and wished your Mazda came with it from the factory. It’s such a visceral feeling that it’s hard to explain.
With that we will leave you with the obvious decision to make. Do the right thing for you and your Mazda.
We are happy to introduce the CorkSport Carbon Fiber Engine Cover for 2014-2018 Mazda 3, 2014-2018 Mazda 6 non-turbo up to 03/02/2018 build date, 2013-2017 Mazda CX-5, and 2016-2020 Mazda CX-3!
Personalize your look to match your build!
Add some much-needed flair to the engine bay of your Mazda in 10 minutes or less. Offered in two different REAL carbon fiber weave patterns with 4 choices of CS emblem colors so you can personalize your look to match your build. Read on for full details and check out the images!
The CS carbon engine cover spices up your Mazda’s engine bay with a fantastic 100% real carbon fiber. You have your choice of weave between a regular 2×2 twill weave or “forged” carbon for a little extra cost. The forged carbon was originally developed by Lamborghini and uses chopped strands of carbon instead of the traditional carbon cloth for a unique appearance. Both are finished in high gloss for a truly great look!
Each CorkSport engine cover is designed to be a direct replacement for your OEM engine cover. We used an OEM cover when creating the design so you can be sure it will fit and look just like OEM. All OEM mounting locations were replicated and then securely bonded to the carbon. The covers sit right where they’re supposed to and don’t cause any vibrations or rattles!
Add some flair to your engine bay
We finished off the CorkSport CF engine cover with a custom billet aluminum “CS” logo badge. It offers a nice finishing touch that replicates the Mazda badge on the OEM cover. To give it your personal touch, four different anodize colors are available: blue, red, black, and silver. Each color looks great with the carbon background, whether you want a stealthy black look or bright red to match your car’s paint and your CS intake!
If you’re looking to add some flair to your engine bay and impress at your local car meet, check out the CorkSport Carbon Fiber Engine Cover. Be sure to check out the product listing for more pictures and don’t hesitate to give us a call with any questions, we’re happy to help!
Mazda 3, 2014-2018 Carbon Fiber Engine Cover July 16th, 2021Sky
Add some much-needed volume to your 4th GEN and help the engine breathe while doing so. It’s a great balance of growl under hard acceleration, yet quiet while cruising, plus you get a nice visual boost to the back of your ride. Read on for full details, and be sure to check out the product video for sound clips! (Mazda3 pictured below is OE ride height. If you are looking for more low, check out our 4th Gen Mazda 3 Lowering Springs!)
The CorkSport ABE replaces the restrictive OEM muffler section with high flowing, mandrel bent 304 stainless steel piping and a pass-through resonator. This allows for a great sound that is just loud enough to make your backroads journey fun without ruining your daily commute.
A deep and great sound
The tone is deep with some nice growl to it that you’ll love to hear. Due to the unique, offset inlet flange, we ended up going with the single asymmetrical resonator for the best tone combined with drone elimination. We tested multiple resonator combinations before determining the single long resonator was the best setup.
The sound was not our only focus, however. We’ve increased the piping diameter to minimize flow restrictions in the exhaust. The piping diameter was increased from the OEM of 50-55mm (depending on where you measure) to 63.5mm (2.50 inch). The OEM muffler section has a lot of twists, turns, and flow restriction to quiet down your Sky-G. The free flowing resonator eliminates this flow restriction, and when combined with the larger piping, lets the 2.5 breathe better.
The sound and performance also comes with a visual gain. Exhaust tips are increased in size up to 90mm to better fill in the bumper cutouts of the BP Mazda 3. Each tip is dual wall construction that uses a rotated slant cut design. This helps the tips follow the curve of the bumper just like the OEM tips. Each tip is finished off with a laser engraved CorkSport name badge for a nice detail.
The GEN4 Mazda 3 exhaust also allowed us to bring in a feature we have never had before: adjustable tip length. Each tip is attached using a slip fitting and exhaust band clamp to provide secure and exhaust-leak-free performance.
Three different tip length options
This slip fitting gives you up to 10mm of length adjustment to really dial in the look you’re going for. That is not even the best part though! We are offering three different tip length options for you all to choose from: Hatchback, Hatchback w/Appearance Kit, Sedan, and CX-30.
The sedan tip option is the longest in order to fit the longer rear end of the sedan models. While not intended you could put these on a hatchback if you’re into the “blast pipe” look.
Adjustable tip lengths
The Hatchback W/Appearance Kit tip option is the medium length tip. These are intended for hatchbacks equipped with Mazda’s factory Appearance Package and are also the optimal length for the CX-30. This offers an aggressive look to match the aggressive nature of the Mazda Aero Kit. These tips can also be used on a non-aero kit hatch, however, they would stick out too far for most people’s taste.
The Hatchback without the Aero Kit tip option is the shortest option and is intended for regular hatchbacks without the Mazda Aero Kit. You can also run these tips on hatches with the aero kit if you’re going for a more conservative look, but they tend to disappear in the bumper skirt.
Made entirely from polished 304 stainless steel
As usual, each CorkSport 2019+ MZ3 axle-back exhaust is made entirely from polished 304 stainless steel for the best in appearance and corrosion resistance. Each joint is TIG welded for strength while the inlet flange is laser cut to ensure a perfect fit. Each exhaust comes with all hardware needed for install, including exhaust clamps for the tips. You also get full color installation instructions and support for any installation questions you may have.
We strongly encourage you to visit the product listing for more pictures and to check out the product video for sound and video clips. This exhaust is fantastic, especially for a daily driver. Let us know what you think, and share other 4th GEN parts you want to see!

The 2019+ Mazda 3 handles surprisingly well, even with the new torsion beam rear suspension. If you’re looking for even better handling out of your GEN4 3, we are happy to help!
Visual boost to your engine bay
Introducing the CorkSport Front Strut Tower Brace for 2019+ Mazda 3 Sedan & Hatch. Improve driver feedback, add stability, and improve your confidence through the twisties in as little as 15 minutes! As a bonus, it even offers a visual boost to your engine bay. Read on for full details and don’t hesitate to call us with any questions!
The CorkSport Strut Bar connects the front strut towers together to improve chassis stiffness. By connecting the left and right strut towers together, flex in the strut towers themselves is reduced during hard cornering.
Better driver feedback
This helps the suspension better do its job. This is most easily noticed through better driver feedback, so it’s easier for a driver to know what the car is doing when in a corner. There is also added stability, especially at a higher speed. Both of these aspects combine to help with driver confidence so you can attack your favorite backroad.
In order to offer the biggest handling improvement, we chose the best balance of strength and weight. The center bar section is made out of 2024-T4 aluminum so we get plenty of strength but keep the weight down. The two end brackets are made from laser-cut carbon steel that is precision welded together for the utmost in strength to give a solid base for the lightweight center section.
You can’t have all functions with no form though! To give a classy visual boost to your engine bay, the center aluminum section is fully polished and finished off with a CorkSport name badge for a clean look. The end brackets are powder coated black for long-lasting corrosion resistance and a clean look that will match just about any engine bay.
To provide the best experience for you all we include full-color installation instructions and all the hardware needed for installation. The center section of the brace is attached to the end brackets with chrome-plated hardware for long lasting good looks and strength.
15-30 minute install!
Also included are new strut mounting nuts to ensure good thread engagement and a final shiny touch. This means a typically install only takes 15-30 minutes with minimal tools required!
If you’re looking for an easy first mod on your new 3 or are wanting something to compliment your new CorkSport lowering springs and Short Ram Intake, the CS Front Strut Bar is a great option. We’re excited to see what you all think of the new strut brace. Check out the product listing for more pictures and to purchase!
