    Is Mazda dropping the colour for any particular reason? Do they not sell as many in this colour?

    Is there a complete colour range change for the MPS's now or are they just dropping CB and introducing white?

    They are dropping the CB to introduce the White.

    The CB is the lowest selling MPS colour in the range. I think Black, Alumium and red make up about 30% each with CB making up the balance of about 10%.

    The other colours are to remain.

    But the thing I found wierd is that CB looks like it will be going completely from the 3 range. I do not see a lot of CB MPS's but I see a lot of other CB's.

    CB was a shade too far in the "hero blue" stakes IMO.
    Strato Blue - I had an SP23 in this loved it.
    Winning Blue - Wins
    Stormy Blue - Looks beaut on the RX-8
    Aurora Blue - a roaring good color

    But CB, although it grew on me, didn't quite have the same vibe as the previous metallic blues etc from mazda. Just a bit too "sweet" - i.e. candy color.
    So now we get the hero color requested by popular demand - white.

    If there's no blue MPS, were I to upgrade, and I near certainly won't - I'll build an MPS6 avant before I trade my 3...if I were to trade up, I would want to be ordering a custom blue.

    Or I would in my dreams.
    "Blue Meanie" 2007 Aurora Blue MPS 3 - 18x8.5+44 SSR GTX01 - 235/40R18 Federal RS-RR - 3.5" ETS TMIC - CPE stg 2 mount - HKS/CPE BPV - 2XS inlet - 2XS short shift - 2XS turbo manifold - Hypertech tune - Leather/Aluminium handbrake - Momo shifty knob - 7" touchscreen - JDM Mazda Retractable dashtop screen assembly - PC based GPS and instrumentation - 36AH reserve battery and C-TEK isolator - TEIN Street Advanced coilovers 1" drop - Superpro bushings - 220Kw/410Nm.

    And my MPS6 avant will be aurora blue, at least in mix - I might blend it with a touch of stormy.

    R.I.P. CB. Sad to see another blue colour die.

    On to one of the other topics, wife beaters drive utes.

    To the important topic, White MPS' with black wheels and eyelids... If I start seeing this, I'll trade my car in... for a blue Mitso EVO X...
    White will kill the MPS for me...

    Aw. That's a harsh view on white there Grajy. But if it's just a plain jane gloss white, I DO think that would suck more than Mark Twain. pearlescent+ I say.
    And I'd still want to order blue. And Samuel Clemens did not suck.

    Like the evo above: It'd be real nice if white MPS comes with a dark wheel option..Tribute to Celestial blue-imageuploadedbytapatalk1309204144.312178.jpg

    Nothing wrong with the color.
    Exclusivity will be gone for our cars and it'll become another boring car on the road.

    The colour isn't what decided it's exclusivity though mate. There's not a single colour in the current range that isn't offered on other 3 models AFAIK.

    It'll never be mistaken for a Corolla or a fleet car by people who know about cars. And as for those who don't know about cars, who cares?

    Those that don't like Celestial Blue can Suck mah bawls, i've got my car in the colour I want so I don't care.

    Other 3's, particularly the sedan look crap in CB, the SP25 hatch and MPS are the only ones that can pull it off. I got the blue because it is a bit vulgar, a bit loud and I thought that suited the car really well.

    I don't care if people don't like CB, all I know is I can't stop looking when I catch a reflection of my car in a shop window, I wouldn't do the same if my car was any of the other colours.
