I see, I wondered how it was possible. I tried comparing it to current models but apparently not that one.
Detailing/Cleaning / Re: Soul Red

Wash, rinse, claybar then cleaner fluid followed by wax,
The clay bar will remove all the air debris and such from the top of the paint without damaging it.
I'm mad enough to use Swisswax, which I also used on my previous car, a Skoda Superb which after 15 years still looked like brand new.

That's the new Mazda 6. The new 3 is rumoured to be unveiled at the  Los Angeles  motor show later in the year but Auto express claim to have exclusive pictures of the new 3.
Wheels/Tyres / Re: what tyres?

Asda Tyres (local fit) have )of the decent makes)  Dunlop, Hankook, Pirelli and Michelin's for between £130 and £160 - If you exclude the 89 W

To me, the Pirelli's look the best Ratings (but might be noisy).
Thank you to all people who took the trouble and time to reply with helpful suggestions and information.  It is very much appreciated.

It is different, right? Is the new one still secret? Can this be anything else? Am I getting overexcited by a medium hatchback?

Hey, you all seen this? What do you reckon, are you convinced?
Steering/Suspension/Brakes / Re: Rear shock absorber top mount

You're very lucky Will.
My offside went as a result of hitting a cracker of a pothole at around 70mph on a section of dual carriageway. Steady flowing traffic, so no chance of seeing it or avoiding it. I managed to get full reimbursement of costs from the responsible authority. Replaced by Mazda so that was shock absorber and mount to pay for. Shocking, as nothing wrong with the shock absorber which I have in the back of the garage just in case.
The nearside, which lasted far longer, must have failed over a long period/succession of impacts as it wasn't a single tear/crack.

Norway, Sweden and numerous other countries had DRLs, in the form of mandatory side lights during daylight hours, at least 40 years ago.
Vehicle Entertainment / Navigation Systems / Re: Dab Question

I normally end up on DAB by accident due to the weird set up of the Mazda radio controls on the Gen 3. My area certainly isn't great for reception, but even when I do get a good signal, it's just not worth bothering with. It sounds like it's coming through an old sock. No sharpness.
