The Little Things you LIKE about the Mazda 3

Ok, we have a complaint thread, and after searching I didn't find a thread that relates to this...

What are those little things about the vehicle that surprised you, impressed you, made you smile or go "wow!"

My list begins with:
-Both sunroof buttons being able to close the sunroof
-Red lighted ashtray - very cool and great attention to detail there, I think.
-Blue light over the shifter is just way cool ...
-The rear-middle seat buckle holders in the seat, just making them sit flush, great thinking, Mazda!
-One of my personal favorites: The Tach needle has a little blue fiber-optic bit in it that turns blue on the tip of the needle when you reach red-line. Very cool indeed :D

That's my list so far... I'm sure people have others that I haven't even discovered yet, and perhaps I alerted you to something new as well :D

So ... what little details surprised you?

I like the placement of various things in the car. Like how my arm can rest on either side, the insane amount of cupholders, etc.
I agree with the amount of cupholders. My BMW had ZERO! I hated how whenever I go to the drive-thru of Wendy's and always had to ask for one of those eggcrate cupholders for my one drink. :roll:

Little things I love:

8. Adjustable lumbar lever
Is this available on every model? (i, s, sedan, hatch) I haven't gotten my 3 yet, but test drove it a few times. I never noticed a lever anywhere.
