    was wondering if i could get some advice... lastweek i took my MPS M3 for a service at mazda..

    when i got it back i could hear that when i turn my steering wheel to turn a corner or even do a U TURN i can hear like a WHOOP WHOOP sound coming out of the car somwere but only when turning not when driving straight . . also there is sometimes a click or two that happen..

    im thinking it could be my CV joints...as a car that has 65000kms is this possible already . . and on the report mazda gave me after the service it says they checked all the bearings and what so . . . unless this is all lies...

    any advice is appreciated

    Any other noise other than a CONSTANT clicking, will not be CV joints.
    A whoops noise sounds more likely a LSD lubing problem in the diff. Nothing to panic about. Change your diff oil and it should be ok...

    Its normal, the woong sound is common for the MPSs its just the LSD doing its thing, you can try a different gearbox oil if it bothers you that much, there are a few threads on the different oils available, look in the drivetrain section. I would recommend you do a GB oil change anyway given the k's on your car.

    If it's a constant clicking noise while on the gas on tight low speed corners it'll be the outter cv joints

    I'm just wondering, what does your BLUE on the car look like? In the photo it looks more like Aurora Blue...
    Cosmic Blue was a Greeny-grey-sort-of-blue, while Aurora Blue was a FULL-ON blue...

    There have been issues with the hub splines clicking, usually just needs to be disassembled and re-greased, where abouts in Sydney are you? , maybe we can help find you a decent workshop, as reliable Mazda shops are few and far between.

    Im down in the eastern suburbs. . . near coogee area . . im taking it tomorrow to the mazda dealership as i have an extended warranty with them . . . told them i wasnt happy with service as i had a service done 2 weeks ago and APARRENTLY they checked everything but i dont think they did. . i explained to them the issue so lets hope they can find what it is . . .

    the clicking sometimes happens also when im taking of from the lights. .
