Re: Entering post code in satnav

I'm at work at the moment so can't check. I'll try the process tonight in my car with the postcode you've used and report back.
What is the OS Version on your infotainment? When were the maps last updated by you?

Re: Entering post code in satnav

Once you enter the LE11 you have to manually tap the spacebar before you enter the 2AF, otherwise you get the result you described.

Re: colour restorer

I would have used Meguiar's Ultimate Compound followed by Autoglym HD Wax, because I already have those products.
P.S. Fender is an American term for what we in the U.K. call the wheel arch.

Re: Sorry.

Thanks for your contributions.
Don set up a CX-5 forum on Facebook about 3 years ago. He's still the group admin., although he no longer owns a Mazda.

Re: Wing mirror paint

Good news 8-)
That'll teach you for having a swanky Special Edition :lol:
(P.S: I was correct about Brilliant Black, then.)

Re: Wing mirror paint

Hmm., if it was matt then I guess, unlike the pre-painted ones, it was primed & meant to be painted by a bodyshop prior to fitting :?: Let's see what Thursday brings :roll:

Re: Wing mirror paint

OK, if all else fails you can buy a rattle can of A3F and paint both mirror caps to match :D

Re: Wing mirror paint

You can buy a body colour mirror cover as a spare part from Mazda dealers for £36.75 + VAT. I didn't see any black ones on the parts catalogue though :| although they might with your VIN.

Re: Wing mirror paint

OK, I think the paint is a solid colour rather than mica, and therefore my guess is that it's Brilliant Black A3F.
You may want to get Mazda to confirm that though ;)
