Default MS3 Automatic Transmission

Hi All,
I currently own a 2005 Mazda 3 hatchback auto... It's my daily driver, I like the look, functionality and reliability of the car. Of course, I've always had my eye on the Mazdaspeed and after driving one yesterday I'm kind of hooked... HOWEVER, I can't really justify a manual transmission car and I was wondering the feasibility of bolting on an auto the motor... I'm wondering about the ECU, connecting points etc. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm well aware that I'm leaving myself open to getting a lot of flack from you guys so PLEASE just limit the comments technical commentary.

Thanks in advance

For the price you'd pay for a used MS3 and getting the transmission shit dialed in, you might as well spring for a new GTI or S3 with paddle shifter/automatic modes.

It can be done. But do you have the high amount of money to do it?

What mechanical skills/tools/money do you have?

Daily driver means save for used mazdaspeed.

Why not just throw a turbo on the car you already own? Seems to be the cheapest option.

Honestly, it can be done but just the amount of time and money to get it done is just a waste. Changing this car to automatic takes the fun out of it. I could not imagine what this car would be like if it was not manual. I mean, if you really want to do it, go for it, but be prepared for a long process that will not only take time but cost you an arm and a leg (if you want it done right). IMO, not worth it at all.

Just saw a previous post where someone asked the same question. Should have searched earlier... Was hoping it would have been a relatively simple conversion.

Reasons for needing an auto...
1) I do some driving in traffic on the highways in SoCal and M/T is annoying
2) My wife has a TT (which breaks...alot) and refuses to learn to use a M/T and I'm definitely not going to lend her my M5.

Thanks for the responses though!

Get a CX-7. Same turbo motor and automatic. Plus there are mods out. We have had one for 5 years and 85,000 miles. Pretty fun to drive. Corners well too.

You do some driving in traffic...quit being a bitch and just drive manual. Come to Tampa or Orlando and sit in rush hour traffic then complain about dead leg. Why would you ever let a woman drive your car? Thats just asking for something bad to happen.




Oh, and pics of wife would help us to all understand why you wants the autoz

Having been raised in Cali, traffic there makes FL, even Tampa traffic, look like a breeze. 3 hours to go 30 miles was normal for me.

I second the idea of just turbo'ing the car you've got. It'd be way cheaper, and probably way more reliable too. Damn these shitty ms3s and their crappy smoking turbos.

Yeah adding a turbo to the car you already have is your best bet. You already know how reliable the car is and how its been cared for. If you were to buy a used ms3, who knows how it was driven before you. Plus, I could have sworn I remember seeing somewhere that a regular 2.3 motor made a shit load more power turbo'd than our motor with similar mods. Something about not having the direct injection to deal with.

Hey Silvapain,
Shoot me an offer if you like. Wheels are straight, dent/curb rash free. Tires are Bridgestone Turanza El400's with 1000 miles on them.

Reasons for needing an auto...

2) My wife has a TT (which breaks...alot) and refuses to learn to use a M/T and I'm definitely not going to lend her my M5.

Thanks for the responses though!

1) Move
2) Sell wife and her shitbox car
3) ????????
4) Profit
5) Buy Speed3


In all seriousness, I want an answer to this question: If M/T is enough of an "annoyance" because of traffic and a retarded wife, what are you really going to gain with a sports car and/or more horsepower anyway?

Wait. You have a M5... and a TT ... !? so why would you want an auto ms3? trade in your mazda, get a sonata or optima turbo if you're that desperate. I donno what you're looking for... or just get a moped?
