'New' Mazda 3 1.6 Sport 2008
« on: May 04, 2011, 01:17:39 AM »
Hello all
I picked up my Mazda 3 today as a company car and must say I am quite impressed! Having said that my previous/personal car is a 1997 Audi A3 which webuyanycar have just offered me £50 for... :'(

I was hoping that someone could direct me to an online copy of the user manual as I hav not been provided with one.. I've worked out how to open the windows incrementally lol!

Also is there a link to info on the spec of the car?

Thanks!

The closest match I can find on here is for a 2007 Owners Manual: http://www.mazda3forums.co.uk/index.php?topic=2890.0, which might match your car.
The problem with a "2008" model is that they revised the specs in "mid" 2008, so it depends on when your car was originally made. The V5 might help, but I don't think it is quite as clear cut as when it was first registered - my car was bought in May 2008 and is the "old" spec and I think the first "updated" cars were sold in June 2008, but I think I have seen reports of "old" spec cars first registered in June or July 2008.

One feature of the newer spec cars is the aux input socket which I think is in the central console on newer cars but isn't on mine...

Mine was registered on 30th May 2008 I believe, and it has the aux input socket. It's also got privacy tints which some earlier ones didn't seem to have.
