    Exclamation 2012 White Mazda 3 MPS on sale in Australia from October 2011

    Just thought I'd post some quick details of the 2012 MPS 3, which includes the elusive WHITE MPS!

    No more sports pack...there is only one trim level.

    Minor front changes, middle grille has been removed. Rear valance has been changed and new dash highlights.

    Photos taken by Duglet on his test drive earlier today.

    More details as they come to hand.

    1981 Lincoln Town Car | Auto | 80s Cream | 90s brown interior | 5.0L V8 | Currently no working headlights

    Good move removing that grill, thats about it.

    Interior trim remains the same?

    Rear is bad but not near as bad as the front IMO.

    agree, modding it would make for an appealing ride!

    Apart from the new Instrument colours (which i kinda dont like.. Just my honest opinion) am i missing something??
    I dont see any difference between old and new front bars.. An same goes for the rear??
    The white does look good though
    I was looking forward to the update, but now looks like i'll be sticking to my Series 1

    What's the only 1 trim level then? Does that mean they are all like the Luxury model or are they all like the povo pack?
    There's always been 1 "trim" level in the Gen II (meaning they all come with leather), then the Luxury pack had Bose audio, auto wipers & adaptive headlights.

    I prefer the instrument colour scheme of my 2010 model as well.

    I can't tell the difference between the front bar

    Edit: I can't see much difference in the back either from the normal colours. I will admit the White dash light look nice

    Is the White a flat white or does it have pearl through it?

    It is different and I don't mind it too much

    Whats the middle grill change?seems the same to me.

    Dash light seems a bit too dull for my liking.

    But still like the white over AL.

    Same here..I've compared front grill pics of my car and the white one and cannot see a difference and the same goes for the back ? unless ...it's extremely subtle ?

    Not sure about the white turbo and fuel gage. I actually prefer the current red color scheme..especially at night...its more stealthy

    The forth pic down of the rear end looks like a white pearl...which does look very nice.

    Can buy a rear bumper kit that has them. Knight Sports



    Not fully sold on the look myself. It looks a bit..... bulbous for my liking

    What colour is the rest of the interior trim, seats etc?

    Would like to see one with a decent window tint and the back bumper insert/valance in black (ala Gen 1) rather than body colour. Had to squint to see the difference at the front.

    Is this from South City at Mt Gravatt? I'm in there first thing tomorrow to get some stuff done to mine, if this car is there I'll crawl over it and see if I can get some more pics.
