Smile First time Mazda 3 owner! Pretty excited

Hello all,

So I was driving around my grandfathers 1988 Mercedes 260E for the past 3 years and while it served well, it seems like everything just started falling apart in a span of months, culminating in a busted front brake and axel.

I got a stroke of luck and our accountant mentioned that his daughter was selling her 2005 Mazda 3. At 79,000 kms, 1 owner prior (her grandmother) and it is in pristine shape! I got it for $3250 CAD and am excited to start a new driving career with the Mazda.

It is the M3I model, with a CD player and sun roof, power everything and the inside is fantastic. It has one small ding on the rear right side with a rust spot, but my uncle does body work so I am not too worried.

Just wanted to share my excitement with everyone. If you have any tips, suggestions or advice, I am happy to hear it!
