I wanted an exhaust for my CX30 but the only one available is from Corksport. Had theirs on my Mazda 6 and it was drony so removed it. Someone can have it for cost of shipping.
Back to my CX30. Reviewed all of the exhaust for the Mazda 3 since we are so similar. Loved the Mazda 3 Sport Magna Flow axle-back exhaust. Check it out online, there are videos with sound clips outside and inside the car.
Perfect to my ears.
So I looked at the OEM Mazda 3 Sport exhaust and it looked exactly like my CX30 exhaust.

I wanted black tips, which MF had and Corksport did not. Love Borla but the videos I viewed were too loud for me, very nice sound, but just not for me.

So, after loving the Magna Flow on the Mazda 3 Sport, I kept checking for sales and Hott Exhaust had a 20% off, saving almost $200.

I ordered one and it took about 4 weeks for delivery.

Compared it to my the stock one and matched up perfect.

Installed it today and everyone thing aligned, no issues.

I have not driven it yet but love the start-up,, just enough extra sound.

Will report back after driving but that will not be until Monday.

Install easy. Two 14mm bolts to remove OEM from tail pipe and the some WD40 to lube the hangers, slide them off and remove OEM exhaust. MF sends two 17MM bolts to install their unit and a new exhaust gasket.

Update:
Drove to work today with in-town and interstate driving.
The MF is perfect, nice low exhaust note but not too loud.
You can hear each transmission shift up and down but once in high gear, you know it is there but the radio easily overcomes it.
I had my radio off for initial evaluation.
Love the look and sound.
Perfect fit.
I also believe the Borla advertised for the Mazda 3 Sport will fit.
Check the internet for videos/sound clips of the MF and Borla.

Looking nice! I saw on FB a guy had the same exhaust on his 3 hatchback turbo and complained about losing significant fuel economy. Would you be able to update and let us know if you notice any different there?

I read that also.
Put 100 miles on her yesterday and mileage shown on center display has not changed.
I will update more as I add miles.
But for now she has me smiling ear to ear!

This is definitely a keeper!!
Smile just thinking about it.
Drove to work this morning, mostly interstate with cruise set at 72MPH.
About half-way through my trip, I watched as my MPG increased by one tenth.
So still early, it appears my MPG is not lowering due to the exhaust swap.

Google Mazda 3 Sport Magna Flow exhaust, several sound cuts on line, outside and inside vehicle.
What I used to take the plunge.

All I have is my phone and the quality is not that good.
I did add another 200 miles and my mileage has not lowered any.

I had a MF on a Saturn SC2. It sounded really nice when hard on the throttle and at light throttle and just cruising down the road at 35 or 65 you barely noticed any difference from stock. No effect on mpg. I'd get another one.

After over a 1000 miles, my MPG continues to increase, so for me adding the MF axle-back did not cause a decrease in mileage.
All it causes is a very big smile every time I drive my CX.
