Picked up my Mazda 3 2.0 Sport in Winning Blue yesterday. First impressions are very good indeed.

No pics yet - will take some this coming weekend.

The car caused quite a stir when I parked it up on the office car-park for the first time this morning. Lot's of people looking round it and it was thumbs up all round. The joys of being one of the first UK owners :) I have only seen one other on the road over here.

At last - a sunny weekend in the UK and a clean car so I could take a few pics:

Not sure on the reflector issue. Definitely yellow in the UK - possibly the rest of Europe too?

I've taken the plunge and had the Mazda stainless steel exhaust fitted. Sounds sweet now and looks much better too - more like an exhaust than a pea-shooter :)

I've also had the leather gear knob and handbrake trim, both in blue.

Pics to follow at the weekend (weather permitting...)

The Sport badge is standard on the UK 3 Sport.

Dave - The reverse light and fog light are on opposite sides to the NA spec car (presumably cos we drive on the left?)

Billy - there are a few chips on the hood but these are from a single incident with quite a big stone at 80mph which bounced along the length of the car (it also marked the windscreen and put two scratches on the roof) :cry: To be honest though when I heard the noise when it hit I was expecting worse. I'm also getting the brake dust on the rear wheels (as soon as EBC have Greenstuff pads for the 3 I'm getting some). I've also had the airbag warning light and just need to arrange to call at the dealer to get the new sensor fitted.

Finally got round to taking a pic of the blue leather gearknob and handbrake trim:



Also tinted the side repeaters:
