I just got the call from my dealer and the updated pads for the 3 are available. They are for cars made before march, I think, newer vehicles had them installed at the factory. The Part number is:


The dealership should install this for free, but most likely you will have to argue a bit. At least I won't have to wash rear wheels every week any more.

Psymn, any update on the new brake pads? Are the indeed different than the original ones? Has the excessive brake dust problem been solved? Do you hear grinding at low speeds when braking (that's one of my biggest complaints - I have no grooves though). My car is going into the shop tomorrow for an oil change, and I'd like to know if the new pads changed anything.
Let us know if you get new pads that stop the grinding or the front caliper mount change. My dealer wasn't aware of a TSB for the mount and said there was no new brake pads. I showed him a print out of the TSB from here (for the mounts) and he said it was probably a US only thing. Going to call Mazda Canada when I get a chance and see what they have to say.
