2012 Mazda Mazda3 Long Term Road Test

2012 Mazda Mazda3: Moving the Magnaflow

March 09, 2012

2012 Mazda Mazda3

Bought this Magnaflow exhaust system for my '98 Mustang Cobra and had it shipped to the office, the thought being I could just put it in the car (which is usually here at work) and take it to the muffler shop for the install. But although the 'stang has fold-down rear seats, the pass-through was just a little too short in height to fit the box through. 

Scanning the long-term board for pack mule candidates, I recruited our Mazda 3. After I flipped down the seats and scooted the passenger seat up (there was still room for a short passenger) the Mazda accommodated the large box with inches to spare. Gotta love hatchbacks.
