Well, I succumbed to the new car urge and picked up a Mazda 3S 5 speed sedan-trading my 2002 SVT with 19K on it. Went wholesale on each, getting 10K on the SVT and giving 17K for the 3S. Talk about mixed feelings. So many things I loved about the SVT, other than Ford's service, although Mazda service won't exactly be a giant step up. Miss the 6 speed--4th to 5th in the 3S is like 4th to 6th in the SVT. I'll be adding some mods to get the 160hp up a bit, but the 3 is quite a car--2.3 is a nice powerplant and I love the look of the 3. After 3 years I was ready for a change. Always enjoy reading what all the young enthusiasts here at focaljet are doing to improve their rides.

Congrats on the new car! I looked at buying one of those back in the day but the SVTF had more to offer.

A 2002 with 19k miles? Wow.

Don't forget to check out the Mazda3 forum on the main page.

ps. Nice car - I drove one and definitely liked it. Great interior too.
