It sits in one place. 

It's an easy enough job to fit a 'real' oil pressure gauge, the wiring is the same, you just swap the sender and the dial mechanism over for an earlier model, I did it on my '97 mk1. No  idea if it can be done on the mk2 but the dial face wouldn't match as mk2 has a blue background, mk1 is black.

(the mk3 has a fake oil pressure gauge which is controlled by the ecu and moves around with engine revs, purely for cosmetic reasons, as mazda thought buyers would like that sort of thing. total madness)

Why is the gravy boat gauge so prominently positioned, is the engine volatile?

It's very important to monitor a car's gravy level, especially if it's been chipped. 

Apparently Mazda's R&D department is in the north of England.

Hang on a mo, somebody would actually pay nearly £300 for that stupid washing up rack? Get it sold! (Wish I had thought of flogging it seperately)

You're absolutely right, Must Not.  Who the fuck ever thought black/dark grey alloys were a good idea?

Someone who hates cleaning brake dust off wheels?

although those wheels are at least a simple design so reasonably easy to clean. Whoever designs some of the alloys on more modern cars with loads of nooks and crannies should be made to clean them for a month solid.

so having taken out a normal car policy and got dry bummed which was leading me to sell it on notwithstanding the fitment issues (do i need to man up)

i joined the owners club mainly for the info but tried their *discounted through footman insurance

rang normal car lot and 'i wish to cancel before the 14 days thing'

yess sir may i ask why - told them managaed to get on classic - they probably know all about things like that

and the kicker?
