Exclamation Where can I find the Mazda 3 appearance package at a cheaper price?

I am very interested in purchasing the side skirts, front lip, and rear diffuser for my 2016 Mazda 3 hatchback, however, the price Mazda asks is too much. Has anyone purchased the appearance package from another source at a cheaper price? If so, please provide the link to the location of purchase. Thank You!

PM me and I will happily share two Mazda dealers that discount parts if you want to go that route. However, due to shipping cost being large for the Appearance Package, I would instead recommend your making an appointment with your dealer's Parts Manager, tell him you are spending over $1,500 list on new OEM accessory parts IF he/she will discount them 20%, and to protect him from you changing your mind after you order and their being stuck with the parts (or paying freight to return them to Mazda), you will pay 100% of that discounted amount up front.

And if you are willing to travel and have several Mazda dealers within your traveling range, see if one of them will go to 25%. In fact would start by asking for a 25% discount and then if you need to, back down a percent or two at at time until you reach agreement.

I know that even at a 25% discount, the your parts department is making money with no risk, and know this because I just reached this the 25% discount agreement with my local Parts Manager for Mazda accessory wheels and more. (Identically to the 25% discount I got last summer with a local Subie dealer on a similar appearance package for my WRX -- and I did not even buy the WRX from them.)

Yes.... I had this all worked out until I found out they changed the 2017's and now have different parts.

The factor look Front and sides can be had from Baysonr for cheap (even cheaper on their store on ebay). When it comes to the rear diffuser, you are pretty much stuck with OEM, however it can be had at a decent discount from online places (like ebay).

Hey I'll also PM you if you don't mind because I need the appearance package as well. Got my Mazda 3 GT Hatch yesterday. I have Premium Equipment and i-ACTIVSENSE and now I need better appearance.

I tried to PM you but I could not because apparently I need to have 15 posts before I can PM anyone. Can you please PM me? I need the appearance package for my Mazda 3 GT Hatch I bought yesterday. I have Premium Equipment and i-ACTIVSENSE and now I need better appearance.

Thanks

I ordered a kit from ZestJDM... It'll be here Monday so I'll try to test fit and see how nicely it fits.

When I find a great internet price on an OEM accessory, I then use the process of visiting my dealers' parts counter, and with my credit car in my hand, clearly visible, tell them I can get 25% (or whatever the internet price is, plus shipping cost if anything), and "can they match my price," but before giving them the opportunity to answer, I again wave the credit card and say, "if so, I am buying it right now."

Works for me about 2/3's of the time, and now on both my '17 WRX and my '17 Mazda, I am getting 25% and up off on all over $150 items, at least 20% off on all other OEM accessories.
