Coming Soon:

I have decided that I am trading my Focus in this August. I am 95% sure that I am going to get a Mazda 3s. In black. and DEFINITELY MTX.

I test drove one the other day and absolutely loved it. I have already picked out rims for it...

Anybody know what the BEST Mazda 3 forum is?

**EDIT** WTF? The rims I picked did not show up....

mazda3forums.com

and welcome
BTW try to get S Plan or X Plan Pin you can save a bundle..

You can also wait a couple months after August.. there is a Facelift coming later in the Year - around the time the Mazdaspeed3 is coming... and you can either get the new look, or maybe a discount on the old look (there are not spyshots of the new look yet)..

Igor

Good luck

Two things//

Did you drive the "i" version with the stick... it has great power and delivers more MPG... the 06 has more power than before..

Second, what is the weight on the rims?
The stockers are about 22lb each, so if you pick something light, you can really help your performance..

BTW I have 35mpg as my personalt record on a broken in 2.3l with a stick

Yes. I drove the "i" version....The "s" has more power and torque.

I will check on the weight of the rims...and get back on that.---**EDIT** 19.6 lbs. for 17"X7.5

I like the current model....By the time I DO buy it the pictures of the facelift should be out, so I can make my decision to buy or wait then...

My biggest motivating factor was the 5spd.

I get the x plan through working at Radio Shack so if the mazda speed 3 is any good I am thinking of buying it :) That means I'd only have the new svt for a year, but well....if it's tight it's mine :) Do you think they'd give the x plan on that?
-Joe
PS: Sorry not trying to steal thread and nice choice. I like them as well but went with the svt cause it was only about 5 grand more than my zx3 so not a bad deal :)

The X plan gives like a $500 discount...The only "Real" discount comes with the A plan, which I am not entirely sure I get on a Mazda...The salesman told me that A plan pricing takes roughly $1200 off a Mazda 3i.....not that much, but it helps....
