I just got my 09 R3. I have one silly question. Is there 2 different colour on the dash.
I know the standard is white. And there is a dimmer switch. But is that it? I thought I seen a pic of the new dash with like light blue colour background in mazdausa.com
dont know for sure about the 09s but the older 8s in the us have 2 colors one for night one for day and the dimmer switch is used to switch between them but idk about the 09s

'04 through '0? have two colors, but it's not like you can really switch. It's white with headlights off, red with headlights on, and the one dimmer control adjusts both.
The only switchable thing is that if headlights are on and you turn the dimmer all the way to bright, the dash lights will turn white. Full brightness, so it's not really a useful nighttime thing. Probably useful if you need to have your headlights on while driving in bright sunlight. Like a headlight-required construction zone or a funeral.
The gauges do have a dim, rather eerie, blue background light. I really like that. YMMV - I think there's even a DIY on how to rip those out.
