    Got a 2016 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring. Wife was fed up with me having a standard. She never wanted to learn how to drive one. Drove that MX-5 off the showroom floor in April 2004. Will miss that car.

  4. Traded my Speed3 in for a '15 3S GT Hatch!!!

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    After owning two different model year Mazdaspeed3's (07' Black Mica and 12' CWP w/ tech), I decided I wanted something a little more "grown up", PLUS the main reason for my new purchase is because I received a MUCH better interest rate that is unbeatable with my credit score. Got myself a brand...
  5. Traded in my '14 Sport for '15 i Touring

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Totally worth it. I will post some pictures later but I went from Jet Black to Liquid Silver - much better in AZ with all the damn dust flying around everywhere I drive and ruining the beautiful black. Anyways. I have a question. I am a young buyer, 22 years old, have a solid credit score of...
  6. Traded my new Civic for 2014 Mazda 3 Hatchback with Manual - Will drive 30K / Year !

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I sold my reliable worn out 2000 Honda Accord LX-V6 Auto with 200,000 miles for $3000. I need a reliable commuting car that gave 40 MPG so over a month ago, so I bought a brand new 2013 Honda Civic LX-Automatic since it have better MPG than the 5-Speed manual. What a mistake. After just a...

    I figured this will be a long shot but I have to take it, I am looking to gain permission to bow hunt deer (not too interested in bucks but more so wanting to fill the freezer) willing to do labor year round providing work or planned family functions do not interfere (USMC vet so I know what...
  8. Traded my MZ3 for a MS3

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    Hey all, so i've owned my all black MZ3 for exactly a year, it was a good car.....great even, but it really fell short in the fun department being an auto and rocking its 150bhp. Yesterday i went to the dealership here in Ventura and they were unloading (apparently) the last shipment of...
  9. Just traded in for a new '13 mazda3

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Just traded in my 2007 Mazda3 for a new 2013 Mazda3 iGT. I love mazda3s and I couldn't think of better car than the Mazda3. I think the new Mazda3 are nicely designed except for the big mouth. I was thinking of repainting the middle bumper within the grill so to make the mouth appear smaller...

    Off Topic Lounge
    All I can say is wow - the CX-5 is a great car! I only got the sport base model with auto and the bluetooth/touch screen HD radio but so far I am very happy. Have it being tinted tomorrow and the homelink mirror installed as well as the trunk rubber floor mat. I splurged on a 7 year 100k mile...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I know I put a decent amount of work into my 3 but I couldn't deal with the lack of power from the 2.0. Even after the mod's I did. My dealer emailed me saying he had a 2011 speed 3 that we could work a deal out of. I went to the dealership to test drive the speed and see if we could make a...

    Welll, I dropped my dog off at the groomer on Saturday (1/29) and with a couple of hours to kill headed over to my dealer in my beloved 2010 Liquid Silver M3 GT hatch 6sp (14,000 miles, all original, no mods). Though there were a few things about it I didn't care for, I have really enjoyed the...

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    I was getting bored with the lack of handling with my GTO. I needed to up the fun factor. A friend told me to check out an Ms3. After 10 minutes behind the wheel I was a believer. The car is a brand new '09, Mica black with a black interior. I look forward to learning about these cars from...
