    Got some news about the 2013 Specs/Changes

    The all new MY13 MPS 3 features:

    •Intelligent key system with push button ignition system (New Software)
    •LED taillights
    •Dual-zone automatic climate controls
    •Auto dimming rearview mirror
    •Premium 10-speaker BOSE audio system
    •Centerpoint« and Audio Pilot ™
    •USB audio input
    •18” MAZDA dark grey alloy wheels
    •Black Mica door mirrors
    •Black Mica roof spoiler
    •Dark metallic paint in lower area of rear bumper

    Makes me more excited now to know what actually is changing and what is rumours.

    ***ALSO may, or may not be a slight change in the material used for the middle sections of seats.

    Daniel.

    Thanks for the update Dan, keen on some pics, the update on the Ipod connectivity is interesting, I wonder if they finally give full functionality to iPhones?

    Yeah, that is what the dealer COULD confirm. iPod can be controlled through the wheel/main unit through the USB port, not just a AUX plug-n-play type.

    Welcome mate. That car is going to look shit-hot, no two ways about it. Can't wait to see pics!

    I was thinking yesterday about plasti-dipping/painting my wing black, and this has just confirmed it for me, albeit on a Gen1.

    It should look amazing, especially the silver + black paint combo and the darker wheels

    The only thing that I wish they did was paint the brakes (I will just have to paint them myself, thinking black with white MPS decal) and give you an option on interior fabric colour.

    Actually (I was just reminded by another member ), with the Bluetooth update, I was wondering whether it will show METADATA, ie, track info etc. But remembering now, the restriction was always with the IPhone itself, not using the latest Bluetooth stack.

    Well in this age of technology they should be able to display METADATA! Now especially with the USB connectivity.

    Silly iPhones... Nokia N9 FTW!! It is like a iPhone, only better because it isn't a iPhone

    They look like mazda USA specs. Hope you got it in writing because we never get the same specs as overseas!

    Yeah, thought the same thing, but got it from a mate in Mazda Parts/Servicing who spoke to one of his supervisors who has a current MPS 3 and was looking to update.
    So I am hoping they are pretty accurate (The Appearance is Confirmed, but it the extras that Mazda are still not 100%).

    Hope so! It sounds good.
    Most the things listed are currently available. Ie led tail lights and the stereo stuff, just seem to be new names.. Eg audio pilot = acl.
    Interested to see the cosmetic changes though.

    My WRX is SOLD (***Pending Payment) and I will see it leave on Friday, which is a bummer, going to miss this car... on a lighter note I found a daily until Movember

    2004 Holden Rodeo, V6, Auto, 4X4... it is the most easy thing to drive.
    Speed-bump? Pot-holes? Small Child? It just keeps chugging along

    Plus driving the Holden for 2 months then getting into a MPS 3 will be an interesting adjustment in the term "speed"

    Someone on one of the other forums has taken some pics of the Mazda 3 mps '2013'. All the exterior things you pointed out are true.

    Interior wise not sure.

    My current daily is a 2007 Rodeo... So I deeply miss it.

    But in the Rodeo's favour: speed-bumps, pot-holes, tail-gaters, idiot-drivers, etc... are all now worries of the past.
    The massive suspension and tyres soak up the bumps and the size of this things reminds the idiot drivers who will come off second best

    Little Update, ordering parts and getting quotes:

    - Ordered M'z front lip
    - Ordered K&N Panel Filter
    - H&R srpings (awaiting reply from distributor)
    - COBB AP (Getting Quotes)

    Counting down the days until it the keys are in my hand

    Makes me laugh when ever I drive with mates or girlfriend they say "is that a MPS?"... "no thats a SP25/3 Neo"
    Or when I do see one, they are like "ohhhh, didn't notice" or "it looks like a SP25".

    LAWLS Dan, he posted that yesterday. And note "Counting down the days..."

    I'm keen to see what the differences are, to be quite frankly honest, the only difference i see there is the rear bumper being painted in different colour, different antenna, different side mirrors and wheels. Pretty sure the tail lights are exactly the same throughout, the gen 2 series 1 also had LED tail lights. Anyways, all which can be changed visually if you really want from like a gen 2 series 1/2. I'd be keen to see the interiors tho. Series 3. What a joke :P they should just make a new face lift already.

    Keep us updated!
