That's awesome man. I'll Ben keeping my SVT as the DD and winter beater. I hope mine hits 200k with no major issues.

Oh and I love the 5 door look. Kinda wish I bought a 5 door orange SVT.

It's a shame that Ford went away from specific optioning of a vehicle and went the Rapid Spec route. But it is all about making the company profitable.

Sold!!!! Although I doubt it. Comparing the option laden offerings currently available ... I can't see it fitting into the line up.
But it was mentioned earlier that the line up would have to change to fit the ST.

lscrx The styling of the Mazda 3 and the storage capacity behind the seats were the two major drawbacks for me. And neither of those change in the MS3.

Now the GenPu MS3 isn't a bad deal you just have to put up with the smiley face front fascia.
I consider that to be a huge drawback.
Without the specs of the ST, it's hard to tell if it will be an upgrade over your MS3.

MacAttack I guess it really comes down to pricing and features.

But I'm 97% sure I'll be ordering this the second I can, so I can get it as soon as possible.

And from what I've heard, it will be a 6 speed manual transmission only. Nothing from Ford has said otherwise.
