SEL 300A. The interior trim is nicer and it comes with everything the SE has plus more features for about the same money.

I can't offer a difinitive answer, but here are some points to consider:
-Blue Candy will be HARD to match in the event of needing repairs
-The SEL will be a rare trim
-SE Sports are lots of fun to drive, especially the standards. Is it DCT or a 5-speed?

They had grey Titanium at the dealer today with the handling package wheels. Sure looked nice. Unfortunately, it's almost the same color as the Mazda I have now and I'd like to try something different for a change.
