A Mazdaspeed3 that is, . I'll be trading my 8 for that beast today. Just wanted to drop by one last time and thank everyone for all the help I have received on this forum.
So here's what I think of the 8 after a year.
Things I will miss:
-Revving to 9,000 RPM.
-Usable back seats for a sports car.
-Feels like your in a cockpit with the way the seats are set up.
-Sports car style (exotic look), sports car feel.
-The gauges are the best around, I love the blue/red color combo.
Things I won't miss:
-Gas guzzler, 17-18 mixed (revs kept under 5k). 12-14 spirited driving (revs kept over 9k).
-Lack of torque, would have loved just a bit more to feel some "umph."
-Clutch felt notchy, at least mine did.
The MS3 has a totally different feel. No sportiness, but feels better as a daily driver. Heck, I'd keep both, but can't afford two cars =P. I will miss my baby and all the fun I had with her. But I do look forward to some MZR DISI 2.3 Turbo (man that torque steer is one scary **** , mental note :keep both hands tight on the wheel before flooring it: hahaha.
PS: anyone know a good forum for the ms3, other than the one that links to this site?
