I've seen last years mazdaspeed 6 and was not impressed at all. Mommy car.

You just like it cause it reminds you of that VAG trash you used to bomb around in.

...and just as S-L-O-W too!

I don't like that boost is limited in 1st gear in the name of "reducing wheel spin." But 0-60 in 5.4 isn't too shabby for a family errand mobile in that price range.

I'd hit it. Drove it last year and I quite liked it, even thought it's FWD

I don't know if I like the RX8 wheels.. but I like the MS3 as a whole. There's one that parks next to my miata all the time. I'll snap a pic. As for the speed of the car, who cares, you have a miata for that.

If its a turbo I'll give you a hook up on one of our valves. From the feedback I've been getting it makes an enormous improvement in drive-ability and boost response.

I like the MS3. Easy upgrade path to 300+whp. I've got a Mazdaspeed intake for it you might want. I'll hook you up.

i'm with ya, dude. i came to the same conclusion and traded my POS daily in for a vanilla '08 mazda3. i test drove and thought about spending some extra dough for a ms3, but realized there's not really a reason to, if all i need out of it is comfort, mileage, and reliability.
