Soon I will be gone..time to move on.

I have made my discision to depart with the Mazda3. I know that will make some extremely happy
After paying the car off I started looking into a few options, they all started off with a fully built block and the bill was adding up pretty high.
After making a list and adding everything up, it was an easy discission to move on.
Having been in contact with alot of aftermarket companies and getting the same response that there is not a market for the Mazda3 has gotten old. Sucks to have money and no parts to buy. Besides I can't remember ever owning a car for more than 2 years.

I have been watching the Chevy Cobalt SS ( yeah I can't believe I'm looking into a SC either. and the SRT-4. They both seem like a better starting point for me, especailly with the factory support for both.

In no way am I saying that the Mazda3 is a bad car, just for what I wanted to do, it didn't fit the bill.
Just figured I'd make many of the people here happy....
It has been fun

Party Time!!! * arty: * *Just kidding....anyway, get an SRT-4, so nice right from the factory, and the sky is the limit on where you want to go. *Just hope the Dodge can hold up over time and punishment. *Hope you move on to bigger and better things in your life. *Seriously. * Happy Trails *8)

Re: Soon I will be gone..time to move on.

Employee pricing is still on for the SRT-4's, I say move quick.

It sounds like you will have a lot more fun with a car with lots of aftermarket support.

It is just hard to find them with the options I want.....you almost have to settle just to get one. And being that this is their last production year some dealers are marking them up.
If I choose the Cobalt I'll get a killer deal and save thousands over the SRT-4 though.

And 2 cars is not an option I already have a 05 Pathfinder.

from the reviews I have seen the Cobalt is the new cavalier.

[/quote]No shit, I mostly meant that the quality of the cavalier followed as such.
