I have been starting to see a lot more 3rd gens now, from stock to modded. This thread is to post up sightings, feel free to use the same format if you wish. If the Mazda 3 sighted is a member on here, they may post up and say "hey thats me!". (inspired by other forums with sightings threads)

When: 4/21/2014 at 6:30 p.m.

Where: San Jose (Santana Row in front of the Counter Burger)

What: 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback

Color: Meteor Grey

Visible modifications: Car appeared to be stock.

Occupants inside vehicle: Caucasian male in driver's seat, late 20s/early 30s, female in passenger seat late 20s, Asian.

Notes: I saw you parking along the row in front of the counter burger, you were having a heck of a time trying to squeeze between two cars who left little to barely any room in the adjacent space.

I've seen so many more lately and I'm not a daily driver. I would guess 6 or 7 in last couple weeks alone. Probably 15 in and around SF. Majority are Grey, although I've also seen silver, red (2- not counting mine), titanium (2 or 3- not sure, looks grey from distance), crystal blue (2) and black (2). I think the only reflex blue I've seen is the 6. The latest was last night:

For all their popularity on this site, I was surprised that it took so long for me to finally spot a white MZ3. Looked nice. And very white :)

I'm going on a trip to Vietnam next year and I had no idea this was a thing. I suppose Starbucks can't compete with that. Or can they? :no:

Los Angeles and the SF Bay Area's Viet coffee shops have always been pretty popular. It's a whole different experience to Sbux, this place is like a strip club setting because the ones I go to the girls are nearly nude (pasties on the boobies).



The more conservative shops have girls in bikinis/bra/panties...but the majority I been to the girls are almost nude and some had girls completely naked but were shut down unfortunately because of that.

*I think the U.S. Viet coffee shops are pretty good because they have a variety of girls....from Asian to white to latina to black etc.
Not sure what the Viet coffee shop scene is like in the homeland.
