Update on Event: Aftermath!

Well,
As 'Stanman' said (here), it was truly a fun day (to say the least) and as Mazda advocated it will be: A Fun Driving Event; It TRULY really was.

I visited the event on Sunday (yesterday) and apart from the weather being glorious, which is usually the ‘talk of the town’ just after winter here in the North East, there was no time to ponder upon this act of nature, but to indulge in the activities that were excitingly exhibited by Mazda.

I have never seen this plenty Mazdas together at one place. If you were contemplating on going (like I did for a while) since you had nothing much to do (I had studying to do) and did not attend, then you would have missed truly a fantastic and mostly FREE event (except if you wanna' go Go-Carting, etc).

I test drove all the 3's, from the i and s 4-dr to the 5-dr, first of all, then I had to take the MazdaSpeed MX-5? Miata 6-Speed for a Spin. Oh, it was truly a SPIN. That thing is amazingly fast.

But let me get back to the 3's since most here are more interested in that aspect of the Mazda generation.

I really like the feel of all the 3's except that I really couldn't tell the difference of the 'feel' between the 3i and the 3s since the test track was with a lot of curves & w/cones; I didn't really get to 'open it up', so to speak. But all in all, I think which ever you choose, it will be fun regardless.

My only disappointment was that there was no Manual 3 there to be tested (which I'm getting) so I opted for the MazdaSpeed MX-5 Miata instead to fulfill my appetite.

The only one I didn’t bother to test was the RX-8 (how obtuse was me?), but I had to let it go since the line was extra long (even for the 6-spd) and besides my girl, perhaps, would have gotten tired with all this test driving.

If you could have gone to this event and ended up missing it, then you really did missed a good thing, a very good thing. If you had other obligations that wknd, then hopefully next time around, you’ll be the first one there.

Man, these sound like such fun events... too bad the closest one to Seattle was over 800 miles away in Cali... there's just a huuuuge gaping hole in the Rev It Up map in the entire NW of the country... while other areas have like 2 or 3 events within 100 miles it seems... great planning by Mazda

Re: Update on Event: Aftermath!

yea i wish they had a manual 3 there to test but i guess not everyone could drive one and it would have been easier just bringing a auto3.

i test drove both the i and s and i thought the S version felt a bit more peppier on the initial straight-away. i know it was short but i pushed both cars hard there, i felt a little more pickup on the S.
both were very nice cars however and both would do well on the highway or local roads.
Yea, that Rx-8 line was too long, i waited a few min on line in the baking sun and i looked at the empty 3 line. Guess where i went.

Hope the graduation went well. Was it for the BA or AA or something else? What College or Universty is this?

I attend CUNY (NYCCT) in BKLYN.

You would have enjoyed the event in general, but you have your 3 already so not much to worry about.

Anyway, Congrats on graduating bro.
