Re: Focus or hold out for '13 M3 next year?
This is how the 2012 Mazda3 looks with the toned-down smile. You can expect it to look like this for 2-3 more years:
I'd say test-drive both once the 2012 MZ3 Sky-G is available, then pick the one you like best. Personally, I'd wait a year so that the first-year bugs are worked out before buying one or the other. Of course, I'm also holding out for the new Focus ST, but both the MZ3 Sky-G hatch and regular Focus hatch are both on my radar for future MS3 replacements.
I never forget a face, but for you, I'll make an exception!
