**EDIT** Shoot, I don't have the newest version of flash here at work so I can't see it :(

Well, if I were to get one it would cost $25,550. Not sure I could bring myself to spend that much on a Mazda3. Mazdaspeed3, yes. Mazda3, doubtful.

25,500 gives you all the goodies the new line offers, thats' why it's expensive.

How does "tech" items work toward resale value anyway? Does it go against you in those situations, or does it not matter at all?

I'm sure it's safe to assume that nav, push button start and alarm will help in resale.

Best bang for the buck is always the base car. The more bells and whistles, the more money your throw away.

In 5 years from now the difference in value between a loaded GT and a base3 both with 100k miles on them might be $2-$3,000 - but the owner of the loaded GT paid 8-10K more.

You're not throwing money away if the added features are used an appreciated. It's all how you perceive value.

With similar options to my 2009, price is actual pretty close. I wouldn't trade a proven design for the new one, though, especially since I'm not sure about the body or the colors.

I doubt that there is going to be much to worry about about first-year reliability issues as most of the mechanicals are very similar to the existing model.

That is true, but they did enough tweaking that I'll wait a year anyway. I'm also thinking about the interior... While I like the improved driver-centric focus, I'm pretty sure I don't like the two pod look. I find the gauges annoying. I have enough little gripes about it that I just don't know if I could drive it every day. Plus, It'd be near impossible to beat the deal I got on the 2009. :icspot:

For a black on black hatchback (none of the other colors really appealed to me, considering I don't know what those blues and grey really look like), manual, moonroof/6-disc package, s sport:

$21,295

I don't think that's so bad! :p

For my 2004 model sedan, S version with the 2.3L engine, manual, with moonroof/cd package I paid:
$17,000 :p
