Are the steering-wheel controls illuminated? I saw a picture while surfing the net that showed the wheel controls illuminated in red at night. But I can't find the damn picture anymore.

Does anyone know, or have pictures of the steering wheel at night?

Would really be important to me. My TSX looks awsome at night, but I hate the fact that I can't see the controls on the steering wheel at night. I'd be very impressed if Mazda did this for the 3s.

Thanks

YES! The steering wheel controls are lighted :)

Look in the " I got my Mazda3" section for pics of the interior at night.

Surprised that the TSX doesn't have this feature. It is standard on all Mazda3 trims in the U.S., even on the base "i" trim with manual locks, windows etc, I think.

Thanks. Haven't found a picture yet, but I'll take your word for it :)

This is good news, enough to throw me over the hump.
Now if I could only decide on the color... Orange or white or blue, ....

:?

I'm going to take this opportunity to show off a few night pics I just snapped tonight... it's very hard to steady the camera without a flash so that you don't get blurs, but I think these ones turned out quite nice. In the second pic you can really see the illuminated wheel controls, but they're a bit blurry since the focus is on the gauges.

I haven't paid attention to this when test driving, but does the MT version also have the little blue light on the bottom of the center console?

WTF?

The lights on my steering wheel DO NOT light up.

Orange Sedan GT-GFX, 5pd MT

Those pics look cool, but I don't know if it's a US only thing or Hatch thing

Woa..

Just went out to try it seeing as it's dark now and they do light up.

Funny, I've owned the car for 3 months and never noticed that.

You may now continue your regularly scheduled discussions.. sorry for the interruption :)

Stokkes man, you scared me, I thought it's one of those US-only things, that would piss me off big time. I still can't believe Mazda Canada doesn't offer the Yellow exterior color. :bitching:
