traded in focus, new car pics

Well my wife decided she wanted a bigger car, so the focus had to go. If it was paid off I woulda kept it, but we just bought a house a couple of months ago and couldn't afford the extra note. I got shafted on the trade in, like I aways do. I keep saying I'll never trade another car in yet I keep doing it. She owed 5100 on it, kbb sad it was worth 6600 in good condition, the dealer gave us 4000. Kinda sucks but o-well.

On to the new car...its a 08 Mazda CX-7. Platinum exterior and black interior. I'm not a big fan of alot of options, so it's pretty basic, but they all have the same 2.3l turboed motor so that's all that really counts. And this little sucker moves. I can't wait till it's broken in so I can fully test it. And for a small suv, it handles really well. The steering is super responsive and has a over all very smooth ride. The 6speed auto shifts kinda funny, but thats one thing I noticed with all auto mazda's...they just feel weird. My bro's mazda 3 is the same way. But yeah it's pretty nice and we're very happy with it. 244hp out of a 4cyl aint too bad either. Now on to the pics.


the little top mount







changing the oil should be fun

nice... yeah when i test drive the Mazda 3, the auto shifts weird as well.. maybe that is because it's "autostick". or we all got too used to the focus shifting. lol.

I found a message board for it, but havent really looked thru it yet. But I did see that people make exhausts and intakes for it, and some were using some kind of after market blowoff valves.
