Good/Bad?

I went to the dealership the other day to get a quote on a part. And I couldn't help but notice all 3's on the lot. And for some reason I wished there weren't so many. I bought my 3 thinking hey I'll be unique (unlike all the Honda Civic) guys. But now it looks like I'll be lost in s sea of 3's. And by no means am I hating on any new 3 owner but I just remember when I was part of a select few.


Just a random thought.

Mazda can't put out 3's anywhere near as fast as Honda can Civics. What was it, 5k or so were sold in January? 100 per state, and states are big


Plus, if the 3 is on the lot it isn't on the road!

Enjoy your spahgetti, you're very rude.

One positive is that with more cars on the road
there will be more activity by aftermarket
manufacturers.

It's only a matter of time though that the 3 will be
everywhere. This car just looks and drive too
good to be ignored.

ESPECIALLY IN THE LAVA ORANGE HATCH!!!

Hard fact: No production car is unique.

You want unique? Go buy a Boyd Coddington or buy an old Lada or import a Scoda...

Or do like all the other ricers out there and put "speed stickers" and christmas lights under your car.

Sorry if I seem harsh but thats just the way things are. Unfortunately, at the 3s price range, there is no way to be truely unique unless you mod your car.

There are always a ton a 3's on the lots of the two Mazda dealerships here in town. I think that has more to do with people NOT buying them, though. They just don't seem to be a very popular car around here. The 6's win the popularity contest here.
