Hello from Virginia
 
I just purchased a 2005 Mazda 3SP. We bought it for my 16 year old son to drive. It has 133000 miles on it. I'm use to driving a Tahoe & Suburban. This Mazda 3 handles like a go-kart. I made myself car sick.

Welcome! Wait until he adds some suspension mods:winker:, it'll truly handle like a go-kart.

Any pictures or future plans/mods?

Well I just put new struts and strut mount bearings on it today. I just purchased what they sell at NAPA. I would like to replace the rear shocks they seem a little soft. I also did the top front motor mount and both belts. The belts were a not easy to do. Since those belts don't self adjust it was difficult getting the A/C belt on.

I like working on my Tahoe & Suburban so much better they are straight forward and easy to work on. This Mazda SP23 is the closest thing to a sports car I can have on my insurance with out it being a sports car. Having a 16 year old boy on my car insurance is expensive.

These are just bad @$$ little cars. We test drove the Corrola-S the Nissan Sentra SE-R. The Mazda gave you more bang for the buck.
