Deal seal to trade-in my SVTF for '06 Mazda3

Well its official. I'm taking delivery of '06 Mazda3 Grand Touring (same as SP23 from '05). I just had been not too happy with Ford SVTF in general - atleast to my experience nothing but problems.

So I went to the Mazda dealer the other day. They gave me $10,400 for trade-in. My '03 SVTF has 50,000 miles. It an awesome price for trade-in. So I jumped on the deal.

I go through S-Plan (since my family member works at Ford) to get a Mazda3 GT at $19,300. The only options I did not get is Moonroof and GPS. I never get lost and I never find myself using Moonroof much (because I have a spiky hair cut..haha). The interior is, of course, much nicer. The torque is higher than SVTF - atleast on paper. The chassis is nothing short of SVTF.

So, on Monday I'm going to take delivery of my new car. They had to get it from another dealer b/c I wanted Titanium Gray.

I will post some pictures here....


p.s: I will be selling my SCT with 3 programs, Screming Demon and Live Wires.

What'd you do with your mods?

Good luck with the new car, I bet the color is sweet.

The only mod I can take out for sales would be Screaming Demon/Live Wires and SCT Focus Sport.

I'm not going to mod this new car besides window tint.. I honestly don't think its worth it anymore.

you're going to love it. i wanted the gray as well, but the dealer said the earliest they would get 'em in (in stick) would be feb. they had one left (the white one i've got now) in the back and i fell in love with it.

i'll have to get some pics up myself once i wash her (sometime today or this weekend).

Thank you!

The trade-in value was awesome because the another dealer gave me only $7500. And KBB rated the trade-in for $9400 or something like that.
