Picked up my Takuya last Friday and noticed that there was a lining on the inside of my rear arches.Any idea why that is there.

I know this sounds stupid - but does 'heated seats' also mean that they can be cooled with air conditioning in the summer or is it just 5 stages of heat?

I found that on mine as well, and after further investigation also on the wife's 59 plate mini.  I asked around and the view is that it's a sound reduction measure.

Thanks for that :)

Our 1.6 sport has a sliding armrest, although it rarely gets used.

i love the slideing arm rest, i use it all the time, its slid back round town and at night when the handbreak is on then its slid forward as soon as i hit the a12! comfort please! awesome thing imo!

also you can have leather + electric drivers seat and nav + senors on the sport where as your cannot on the takuya, pluss there is still a few mazda 3 1.6 sports out there with keyless entry and keyless start and the global closure etc!

Mazda really let themselves go by removing these features from the 1.6

Global Closure (if you mean the windows) would be really useful.. it annoys me that I have to close each window one at a time...
