Anyone actually done this? And what was the price to get MP3 capability (namely the 6-disc changer w/ MP3)?

I'm about to get this done on Friday - long story short in all the leaflets and brochures I had before getting my mazda 3 it said that it had a single disc mp3 compatible stereo. When I tried to play an mp3 disc it didn't work, so I went and complained and apparently with the new model it doesnt.... Soooo Mazda NZ are giving me a 6 disc mp3 compatible headunit and installing for free. 8)

I wonder if I will get the steering wheel controls too..? Hmmmm... lol I doubt it! But I can always dream!

If you had steering wheel controls before then you'll have them after too. :D

I Have a 07 Mazdaspeed3 and swapped out my single disc player for a 6 disc player from an 06 Mazda3, traight forward nothing special had to change face plate, as the 3 's interior didn't match, the mazdaspeed3's,
Change over was Cake, bought Radio off of Ebay, for 225.00.
Good luck

would'nt it be cheaper to get an ipod and an audiolink mod?

For me....? Nope due to the following reasons:
a) the cd replacement is free
b) I dont have an iPod...... and i'm not planning on buying one

SO to do your option, I'd have to pay for both whereas this way I just use cdrws or cdrs. 6 mp3 cds = 4.5gb (approx) of music which will tide me over fine - hell 1 cd will do for ages even.

Ah stupid local dealer - apparently the part they ordered was something that is not compatible with what's already in my 3. Sooooo they have to order something special in from Japan - though the unfortunate thing is that they don't know what to order...... Jeeeeze...

a lot of people here would probably be willing to sell their mp3 mz3 oem decks if they have them. these people upgrade to metra kits with double-din units msot of the time.

mmm but here mainly means people in the US and shipping all the way over to NZ isnt the cheapest thing to do. Besides, I'm not paying for any of this so I'll be patient and twiddle my thumbs a bit more....
