2.2 Diesel Sport
« on: September 06, 2013, 08:29:38 AM »
Hi All,

Been away from the Mazdas for a couple of years used to have a 3 MPS,

I'm now looking at getting myself a 2.2 Diesel Sport, either 150 or 185.

I've been looking to see if there was any additional specifications that could be added onto these cars?

What are peoples opinions on the two power outputs.

Is it a case there are no additional extras as Mazda fitted everything on the sports???

Hi Nick,

I've just bought a brand new 185 sport Nav and it doesn't have things like keyless entry/start, illuminated scuff plates, footwell lighting, or even a "Sport" badge on the boot lid?? (Mazda have been spoken to about the badge as I think it's been missed in the factory). 

My 2009 150 sport had all the above and I don't know why Mazda keep removing and adding things to the spec of a car especially when you see things mentioned in the sales brochures.

In the last week I have bought some Red illuminated scuff plates from the US, a footwell lighting kit which I am going to change the LEDs in for red ones, and some different badges which I am spraying black, have also got a 6 speed illuminated gear knob which I am in the process of fitting.

Pictures will follow ;-)

Hi,

I was looking at the slightly older 3, not a brand new car. The one I have has all the rear parking sensors, keyless entry/push button start etc.

I've managed to pick up some of the blue illuminated scuff plates, and may look into getting the blue footwell lighting to finish off the look.

I'm wanting to change the gear knob just trying to find what to swap it to, but not bothered about an illuminated one.

I was wondering about spraying badges black also.
