    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.

    Hey guys, I just traded my 2014 Honda Accord Sport for the Mazda 3S Touring. I'm still waiting for my car to delivery since the dealer didn't have the color I want.
  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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
  8. 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...

    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...

  13. Traded my '05 GTO for an '09 Ms3 GT

    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...
