Cool! Those are nasty little hatches. If I'm not mistaken, I'm pretty sure they are fastest fwd 4 cylinder out right now.

yeah its the fastest fwd 4 banger availiable right now. im figuring out stuff with insurance so lets hope within the next month or so :)

its crazy, i was reading about their engines. its a direct injection system where it injects right into the cylinder. it also runs 15.6psi of boost stock with a 9.5-1 comp ratio which is pretty high for a turbo.

the downfall about these cars is that they aren't AWD to be able to compare them to the WRX or even an Audi. the gas mileage is kinda low too. it is supposed to get 25 hw and 18city. i mean i average about 25 with my celica and i drive with a heavy foot. it requires high octane too, which is also pretty expensive. but if i look at it this way, my truck gets 12-13 mpg and i end up spending around 80 a week on gas. so its about the same with the more expensive gas.

Sounds good. The regular Mazda3 hatch is already a lot of fun, the speed3 is fun and fast.

hm..i guess i'll be the first one to say it. I really dont like the car's exterior at all. To big of a front end, kinda looks like a matrix. I think the engineering is great, a good amount of power for its size. Just never really liked any of mazda 00+ cars styling. correct me if im wrong, but, arent these intercoolers top-mounted?

i'm not sure about the 6. i do know it has a little more horsepower than the three.

thursday i'm making a trip to the bank to figure how much of a down payment i will need. the thing that will kill me is insurance which will be up to 3500 a year :(

i think they do come in awd. a option from the dealer. also they are the same motor in the mazda 6 mazdaspeed and cx-7. they do put some good power down. they also look really good. i would rather have a rx-8 though. they look sexy. hope you get. thats a big upgrade from the celi to a mazdaspeed 3..

haha sorry! we'll see when i get it, lol.

as for the 3 being AWD thats not true. they don't have it. and the mazdaspeed6 puts down 275hp and that was a year ago, they don't make them anymore.
