Yep. Time fore new car.

Left Wednesday night to head to the mountains (building house), came back Friday afternoon, and car is gone. Mary didn't drive it, it's gone. I reported it (not like it'll do any good, there's ads out there lookin for parts off the 4th gens, someone wanted to buy it a few months ago and wouldn't quit naggin me because I said no).

So time for new car :( I didn't wanna make this decision yet... goddamn 5 fuckin cars I want :(

Sigh, thieves but on the bright side you do have an excuse for a newer car. I'm sure you always wanted a 5th gen=)

Sorry to hear about the car. Wasn't it kind of banged up from some rally-bashing?

My 2c vvv

mazda3 MPS

190kw
traction control/torque steer control + lsd
comes rolling on 18inch wheels (I think)
big brakes (equal to the 205's I think)
only $40K (AUD, so more like 30K USD I'd guess)
looks like a family car so no probs with the missus.

only problem is it looks so plain

What kind of coverage do you have on it? Any way of hitting up the insurance co? I know I'd be SOL, but how are you on that?

I like the mazda 6's the most out of there current line. They look sporty and fun. I would take one over the mazda 3 anyday. Sorry to hear about the car man.:(

I think the Mazda 6 is going towards the end of it's cycle and i'm sure a new model will come out soon. I bet the new CX7 would be something new to drive.

They look like a jacked up RX-8... I personally dislike there looks but I'm tell you, if your gunna spend that much on a car, get a MAZDASPEED6. those things are fast! 0-60 in 5.25 sec.....that be a ricer killer for sure. Oh btw, its only in 6 speed manual, which is awesome.

MPS 3 does 80-120 in 3rd gear in 3.5 sec

that is quick.

runs 9:5:1 comp and 10psi boost I think

Yeah, I'm pretty much down to the Mazda 6s MS6, or the CX7. I think the MS6 is the last choice due to it's only a 6sp manual (Mary can't quite drive one yet). Either way, I'm lookin at $500 over invoice for any of these cars though :)

Doesn't the MS 6 feel really heavy? I read some somewhat bad reviews on that car. Forgot where though. I support your decision of the CX 7

Top Gear loved it, and that's all that matters.

Oh god no. Salesman let me go balls to the floor in it. Took her up to about 110. The AWD system on that car is fuckin SLICK. Only thing I didn't like about it was how hard it is to NOT go balls to the floor in the MS6.

The CX7 I know I can control myself, cuz it's a sport auto tranny.

MS6 FTW!

It'd be cool if they brought that setup to the Ford Fusion/Mecury Milan/Lincoln Zephyr. Same car(s) as the Mazda6 pretty much, but I prefer the way they look to the Mazda.

I like how the Fusion looks, but I still won't drive it. I know Mazda is a subsuditary of Ford, but the MS6 engine is unique. I don't belive it's used in a Ford car (the 2.3T). I know the 2.0 that's in my 626 is in the Escorts, but I can't find a Ford car that has this 2.3T engine in it.

I personally love how the Mazda's body lines flow. They didn't cave into the BOX generation (Ford F150, Mistu Galant, Toyota LandCruiser). They all are giant boxes on wheels. The Mazda keep the sleek lines.. .:cream:

Yeah, USDM Mazdas have enough USA parts on em (from Ford) to be classified as a domestic vehicle now. I'm not sure what is Ford and what is Mazda, but I still like em.

damn that sucks. if i get hired out there ill track em down and beat them for you.

As far as I know the Fusion's base engine is the 2.3 non-turbo. I heard rumors of an SVT version coming out with a similiar setup to the MS6, but with SVT being put on "hiatus" at the moment, that seems unlikely.

if she can't drive stick then maybe go for something auto in a 6 cylinder form. No point having the woman trash the box as she bunny-hops the kids to school :hehe:
