Nice move up to something that'll work for you - and still be a hoot when you want it to be!

Mine's starting to get eaten by the rust monster, nothing too bad yet but the signs are there - it won't be around forever. Couple winters off the road didn't save it.

Factory Limited Slip is a good deal! I'm sure "felix" didn't know you had one already.

Cheers!
Lol, the rust monster was attacking my car too. That was one of the bigger concerns along with everything else falling apart.

@felix, I'm gonna try to keep it close to oem as possible till close to the end of the warranty period. It's going to be hard.

Lol, it is getting hard to resist the aftermarket. I'm trying to stick to a plan with lite mods that won't impact the warranty. And I'd like to at least make a payment before I start picking stuff up. The freezing weather is helping because I really won't be able to do anything on the car till spring.

Did manage to locate a shift knob adapter so I can use my focus Anarchy Motive shift knob in the ms3.

Didn't get squat for the svt but needed it gone so I took it to carmax. $1500 hurt but the money and time I would have to put into it to make it last the winter and sell for more didn't add up. My goal was make it last till spring and sell it privately. Bought the car for 19.9k with 27k miles. Could have found one cheaper but time was not on my side. The local mazda dealer had a cpo ms3 but the cost was considerably more. Overall, very happy. Payments near $300. I also put cash down.
