I received this from the Mazda dealer closest to me here in NY a few days ago...even though that is not where I bought the car. The interesting thing is the email indicated some deal (no price) with an expiration date but I was going to have to contact the dealer for details..zzzzz

UPDATE: I just received the exact email you received which is different than the one I mentioned above.

How many hours labor? For one hour I'd consider it, otherwise i'm planning to do it myself in the spring

did the install myself and if i do it again it won't take longer than an hour, probably 30mins start to finish. The software update however requires a lot of waiting so if you want to minimize labor hours, I'd suggest upgrading the software yourself first.

I should clarify that the fine print at the bottom says "Excludes taxes and labor costs. Actual dealer price will vary. See dealer for complete details."

Subscribed. I'm very interested in this. How and where would you get the necessary parts to do it yourself?
