Hi, well just cleaning it can leave marks if you're not careful, however at least they do, in the main, polish out with the appropriate cleaning agents, but it so easy to catch a finger nail especially around the top of the glove box. Perhaps they specify a cheaper interior for the european market, maybe it's because their proft margins are lower, or maybe it's because they want to sell more at a cheaper price. Mazda, and other Japanese manufacturers, alway seem to be behind everyone else when it comes to cockpit quality. I just think they're letting themselves down,  and I just think the car would be able to compete more if the quality of plastic(s) was better.

Yes, you're right but maybe they don't want to sell so so so many. Now are waiting times for new Mazda about 5 months (i.e. for Skoda or VW about 2 months max). As my dealer said: Mazda is not for everyone :D. And yes, they have to compete with price if they want to sell some and I hope you know for cars from Japan (they are build in Japan) they have to pay customs duty which European car manufacturers don't have to (if they are making them in EU). And it's logical that Japan manufacturers want to make cars in Japan because still holds that "Quality Japanes car have to be from Japan, not from Hungary or Spain or whatever. Because Japanese quality, is THE QUALITY " :), it's something like their selling philosophy which they were building for many many years.

Mines pretty much mark free too after 8k. Used it too help move house too! I can live without the plush stuff. Don't forget the weight saving strategy. if you start coating everything in vinyl and padding it'll soon lard up... clio anyone?

Hi, well all I can say is that the M2 gets the same treatment as my Mondeo, one is unmarked, the other is marked easily....
