The garage that I always take my car to is sourcing the possiblity of adding the folding mirrors and heated seats.

Do the Millies/Eunies also have the trunk release as I've seen it mentioned on MW a few times. There is a spare button just above the fuel cap release and I just wondered if that's what it was for.

I think they are for power folding mirrors, but I&#39;m not sure why that would be handy?

Retract button, correct. I have it but only use it occasionally to keep them in trim.

True thing about the tight spaces in England, was there two years ago. Wouldn&#39;t take my Xedos there thats for sure. But a nice trip anyway

I think I&#39;ve asked you this before Xedosman, but would I be able to get the parts from Norway ?

Why do motor companies do that ? It&#39;s a fact that in the UK we get stiffed probably more than anyone else for car prices and petrol so we should get the fully loaded versions of all cars that come here..not having bits missing that other markets have and probably don&#39;t use.

Over here about $1.50 per litre for 95RON and about $1.70 for 98RON for example.

Yes you did in your thread in the Millenia section. Like i said i suppose you could but parts are expensive here, and are ordered through Mazda Europe anyway, so i don&#39;t see the point. They should be availible through your dealer as well i suppose. However i do have a contact in Mazda Europe. I suppose some here would know the part numbers. I bet those mirrors are not cheap, one of mine was replaced under warranty, came directly from Japan that one. Colour matched from factory, nice

When the hurricane knocked out the New Orleans, we had the prices spike to $1.48 per litre here. But they are down to $0.899 per litre today.

You&#39;re probably talking about fuel prices over 10 years ago at least ! **** !

Yeah it is relatively cheap to drive here. Mind you in the US it is far cheaper yet....

Standard prices are about $1.20 per litre here. Anything over $1 was all but unheard of even 3 years ago.
