You know what's cool about this picture? OK, it's not a cool picture at all, even though I tried to art it up via Photoshop. In any case, what's really cool about the lights in the footwell of our 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 is that not only are they blue but they only turn on when you park the car. A very nice, and pretty, way to find your heels that you took off while driving. Compare this feature to those in cars like the Scion xB where it's "Night at the Roxbury" throughout your drive, unless you opt to keep them off altogether, that is.

I asked vehicle interior expert on staff, Al Austria, if these blue footwell lights were in fact unusual. And he said that interior lights coming on when you park? No. Footwell lights? Common in luxury cars. BLUE footwell lights when you park a car? Highly unusual. So there you have it. Feel free to use this as your wallpaper.
