New guy.

Making my NFG post.

Picking up a 2009 (manufacture date 09/08, I'm assuming this is month/year) Mazda3 later today.

So here is my mandatory hello world post.

Welcome, I bought a 2009 brand new in November of 2008; great car. Which version of the Mazda3 are you getting?

Picked it up yesterday 4 door, 2.0, 5MT. I think that makes it the Mazda3 i Sport? Not to familiar with the trim levels yet, I've been a Toyota guy for my entire driving life. It came with the window sticker though, I'll have to look at that later.



It's a lot sportier than the 97 Corolla it replaced, haha.


Edit> It came with fog lamps standard, so I think that makes it the M3 i Touring.

If the car has 17" alloy wheels then it is the Mazda3 i "Touring Value Edition", also called the Mazda3 i TVE.

It does and it is. Confirmed last weekend when I dropped by the parts counter for some things.

Nice, I bought a new TVE 5-Speed in November of 2008 and sent my son off to college with it in 2012; great little car.
