I am currently looking to get one myself. I just started liking them. I like how you get pretty much everything you need for about 20k not too shabby!!!!! my buddies up here are mazda enthusiasts (rotor heads) to be exact. with 1st,2nd, and 3rd gen rx7's and a 04 rx8 in the crew i figured i need to fit in with this mazda crowd.

I'm lookin forward to possibly getting a titanium grey mz3(s) 4 door auto trans. with everything except leather. I would get a 5 spd but i cant drive stick yet!!!!!! sorry!!!!!!! Cant wait to trade my car: 01 suzuki esteem

Learn to drive the manual, you will like it better. Shouldnt take to long to learn in this car. If your buddies have RX-7's and an RX-8, I am going to guess that you are enthusiasts and are interested in modding your car and in performance. If this is the case you will be upset that you got the automatic, especially if you ever plan on getting a turbo for the car.

I didnt know how to drive a manual but I knew I wanted a WRX and wasnt going to get an automatic. I drove my buddies R/T neon (maybe 2 times total) and then went to pick up my WRX. I had about a 75 mile drive so I learned how to drive a manual on the way home. Now, I wont ever turn back.

hey everyone (new h) what do you think?

Just wondering if you think its a good idea to get leather for this car since it has no heated seats?????? especially up here in new england. what do you guys suggest??????? and i am worried about the moonroof i saw on the forum someone said that there is no rubber around it or something so it is possible that it could leak????? I just want to know I aint getting nothing crappy. Does this car rattle alot cuz I know that my car door panels rattle alot at idle anyone had this problem???? I have learned that you get what you pay for in life and if this is so, as it has been for everything i have experienced then I may be in for a reality check cuz if 20k is considered cheap for a whip then i may want to look somewheres else. I just dont want any problems with this car. Just let me know thanks guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have leather and I am in Michigan. There is the initial shock when youfirst sit down but it takes about a minute for your body heat to even that out. Plus they do make aftermarket heaters.

Another option would be to get cloth and then do a custom leather job with the aftermarket heaters. I have seen one or two in the 3 and they look very nice. I kind of wish I would have done this instead of getting leather from the factory.

The car does not rattle at idle or anyhting like that. I have discovered a few small rattles but every car rattles. I had a WRX and it rattled. I had an Audi TT and it rattled. I am talking minor rattle though that is easily drowned out by the radio. If you havent gone and test drove one yet do yourself the favor and go do so. I loved the look of the car but was worried about the performance. About 1 minute into the test drive I knew I wanted to buy it.

hey everyone (new h) what do you think?

I am planning on test driving it soon but i dont know if i am gonna buy just yet i am in the middle of making a career change and dont wanna have the car payment just in case i dont make it in the work field. I am surprised at how much power this car has for a little compact 4 cyl. I really like the 6 alot but it is a little ways out of my $$ range. I have looked at everything else in the class with the 3 and nothing seems to come close to it. Although i must admit I do like the ext styling of the new mitsu ralliart lancer. If that car came with better int design and 17 in wheels i think it would be a toss up but because of that the 3 takes the cake so far........... Just a quick question does anyone know if the xenon pkg only comes with the leather cuz I cant seem to find one loaded with cloth interior. All the ones i have found, have all the stuff i want except the xenon pkg. I dont think i am gonna go with leather cuz i dont wanna deal with the temperature plus cloth is just as good and comfortable.
