Hi everyone,
I live in Portslade in Sussex, UK. I acquired a 2019 CX-3 Sport Nav+ 1.8 diesel just a couple of months ago and I love it! There are just a few things that I wonder how to improve.
1) At 1.7m I am not tall and have found that even with the driver's seat at max height I need more. I bought a seat cushion from Halfords which has improved things but does anyone know how to raise the seat higher to fully resolve my problem, please?
2) My daughter has the same model and wonders if the angle of HUD can be altered as she is shorter than I am?
3) I understand that the CX-3 was never available in the UK with a glass sunshine roof. Can anyone identify a company here that could fit one, opening or fixed? It would really be the icing on an already lovely cake!
Thanks everyone for your attention, best regards,
TimJ

1) You'd probably have to use some sort of spacers under the seat rails, but any modifications would have safety and insurance implications.
2) The angle of the Active Driving Display combiner can't be adjusted, but you can alter the height of the displayed image to account for different driver height, see the Owner's Manual and this video -https://instructions.cdn.mazda.media/me ... lay_v2.mp4
3) Can't help you with that one.

We're all different. I'm 1.72m and have the seat at its lowest setting. Any higher and I feel my head is touching the roof, with reduced visibility between front of bonnet & roofline/top of windscreen.

Hi., you don't need beam deflectors when driving on the other side of the road. See attached extract from the Owner's Manual:
