mom car?

Around where i live i do not see many modded or upgraded 3's. If I happen to see a 3, which is fairly regularly, i want to stick my hand out the window, and flash them a 3-sign (as opposed to a peace sign). I know anyone in this forum would get a kick out of it but the drivers i see are usually middle-aged or older soccer moms. Not that there is anything wrong with being middle aged, or a soccer mom, but they don't strike me as the population to tinker with their cars and may not understand or appreciate the gesture.

So be honest is the 3 a mom car? Should we just own Jettas?

PLEASE do not let this turn into an argument about sexism or age...ism

Done: Lighted door sills, Fujita F5 CAI, MazdaSpeed3 Exhaust

Re: mom car?

whatever it is, it's not a "mom's car" once you have done your first mod.

Re: mom car?

Only people I see driving 3's are teenagers and young married people such as myself. Never seen anyone over 30 or so driving a 3.

Girls tend to drive the sedans and guys always have the hatches.
