    Just saw it at the dealer. Interior trim is the same (i.e with the red highlights in the cloth trim pieces), and the all white rear bumper doesn't do it any favours.

    The white is a nice colour though. One of these with contrasting black parts would look great.

    They looked pretty much the same to me, didn't test them though.

    Yep looks exactly the same to me! I don't see a difference between the 2011 and 2012 models. I'm pretty dissapointed with the new instruments colors. The older ones looked much nicer!
    I get the car on the 11th of October but the dealer in Melb has no idea what changes have been made to the car, so thanks for the info!

    looking at the pics i cant see any changes either except dash cluster and color ..

    Imo the update is quite disappointing. I've also heard that the dials are no longer blacked out like the previous model.

    Seats are about the same, sadly it appears to be mostly a cosmetic update... Gen 1 is still better, will update with more impressions post drive

    Dear Mazda,

    Changing the dash lights ever so slightly, trimming the lineup to one model choice and swapping a blue exterior paint choice for a white one is NOT good enough for "Series II."

    Booooo Mazda. We have known for quite some time that the revisions would only be very minor, but still...grrrrrr

    And better seats... The one thing I really want to find out is the new SP update, when it's coming out and specs

    Curious to see if the 2012 mps is more than just a slap of paint

    That looks different to my Gen II. Is this the luxury model ? Looks Like they've changed the stereo control knobs and added more stainless steel trim. Also the gear stick has lost some of its shinyness ?! They've removed the fake silver plastic around the gear stick as well.



    Here is a pic of my stereo to compare. I've marked the bits to look at .



    Got a wide angle pic of the dash ?

    Can you confirm if the dials are no longer blacked out and are always visible even with the car turned off?
