Very nice write-up. Love this car more everyday. Funny about that hole in the armrest. I noticed it when I was re-arranging everything from my trade-in. When I went back to my dealer, I asked the salesman if they could find a replacement piece for my armrest since it looks like it was missing. He didn't know but looked at the showroom car and then said it was supposed to be that way. When I asked why, the gaggle of salesman said it was a map pocket. Fold up you map and put it in there. I told them that is doubtful, who uses maps anymore and that I don't think Mazda would design a map pocket since everything else is pretty modern. iPhone 5 will fit but make sure the screen is facing away from that clip.
