New Mazda 3 on order
« on: May 25, 2017, 07:34:10 AM »
Hi everyone,

Not quite 'I've just got', but I've ordered my Mazda 3 from the dealership and it's due in July. In the meantime, I'm keen to understand as much as I can about the car (not owned a Mazda before, let alone a Mazda 3).

It's the Sport Nav 2.0 petrol, manual model, with black leather interior and safety pack. At the time of ordering I was told there was only one such model available, so it sounds like it may be pretty exclusive (either that or they've sold all the others  ;)).

Are there any accessories (from Mazda or otherwise) that you'd recommend?

The new 2017 3 really is a brilliant car so I don't think you'll be disappointed. Which Sport model have you opted for, the 120PS or the 165PS?

The 120PS. I'm buying less for the sportyness and more for the extras that you get on the Sport model  ;) Besides, it keeps my MPG and insurance group down.

Thing is they are mechanically identical so quick remap at bbr  will get a 120 to match and slightly better the 165. An option in future if you change your mind.

That's good to know - thanks!
