2014 Mazda 6 Grand Touring
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hello all!

I just bought my next door neighbors one owner 2014 Mazda 6 Grand Touring in soul red with 83k miles. Car is pretty nice so far, I use it for my out of state vehicle as I daily drive a 2017 Corvette Z06 Manual.

Since I use this car to drive on out of state trips or trips to my local VA hospital I wanted a better headunit.

Ended up ordering one from amazon, Dasaita 9" android 8.0 with 4GB ram octocore, and supposedly it comes with the CANBUS option for my BOSE system that I need from reading the older threads, but still unsure on this working out of the box, I should get it before the end of this month.

Other things I would eventually like to fix but aren't as important is the body on the outside:
got a big scratch on passenger rear door area
the side skirt went over a curb or something on the passenger side so it is slightly pushed up.

I already fixed my MAF because of a CEL and dealer found it to be an aftermarket one, but dealer wanted $430 to replace it, so I bought an OEM MAF from amazon for $150 shipped to my house and replaced it myself in 2 seconds.

Also the rear bumper tow hook covers were missing and I also replaced those with the MAF.

Hi thank you! Hoping to add and also gain some knowledge, this is my first Mazda and I'm pleasantly surprised.

I'll post some pics when I can.

Few pictures of my cars, hopefully they work

My 2017 Corvette Z06 manual.

Picture of when I got the car, that needed the tow hook covers and I still need to think about what I want to do to the body scratches/dent.

Also pic of the Made in China aftermarket MAF that was giving me problems.

Selling a your car to the next door neighbor says a lot the about confidence people have in these cars, lol. Even if it won't be their primary car.

Welcome to the forum!

Mmmmmm Z06 in white :drool:

Definitely let us know how things go with the head unit, and if you have any questions.

So far ordered an Android 9.0 headunit with the PX6 chip and 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. $390 shipped so lets see if I get charged any customs tax when I get it.

And I agree, usually I'm not one to go after the previous owner, to me a used car sale is AS IS always. I always explain that to every person involving buying/selling a car.

This is the unit I ordered. Will put up a video with a review on install and how it works overall.
