Hey everyone,

Well... actually I am picking up the car tomorrow afternoon but I am too excited. Right now I am driving a demo Mazda3 Sport until I pick up my car (since they wanted me to leave my trade-in at their lot over the night).

I went to test drive the SiR, the Matrix XRS, and the Mazda3 these couple days and I just have to say that the other cars didn't even come close when it comes to the sporty feeling that I get when driving the Mazda3.

At first, I was entering the showroom looking for either the Titanium grey or the blue... but once i entered the dealer's lot I saw a white one being washed. And I was stunned by the looks, I just fell in love with the white one. After looking at the list of threads on this forum, I noticed that white is not so popular so far. But I think I made the right choice... :)

Let's see... it's a 5-spd white Mazda3 Sport with A/C and moonroof. Too bad it's the Canadian version... I think I will look for an aftermarket HID kit soon. In terms of other mods, I still can't afford them yet... but the car is already nicely equipped so I don't have to worry.

I promise I will post some pics when I get the chance to do a photoshoot on a sunny day!

Cheers!

Congrats on the car and on giving this thread a title that Dinu01 will be proud of :wink: Enjoy the new ride!
Dinu might capitalize the "W" in "white" :lol: :wink:

Congrats on your new MZ3, and white looks very classy on the MZ3, not like an appliance like on some cars. :)

Thanks!

Thanks guys!

Just one question tho... in one of the local car forums I saw a set of 18x7.5" rims for sale with a bolt pattern of 5x114.3 and an offset of +42. I think it was off from a newer model Nissan 240SX. I am not sure what the bolt pattern of the 3s is but i faintly remember seeing somewhere on this forum that it is 5x114.3.

Can someone help me determine whether this set of rims will fit my car? I don't really know how to properly calculate for the correct offset so I have no idea whether +42 would fit with a rim width of 7.5".

Thanks in advance!

Congrat's On Your Ride.

I Don't own a MAZDA 3 Yet but Planning to. I would love to see some pictures of some white 3's. So Please Take some. I'm Planning to get a White one or Titanium One.

If I get the 3. It'll be fully loaded. and oh yeah the one I want is the SEDAN, Maybe Hatchback. Who knows I'm undecided.

I notice theres not to many WHITE ones on here but alot in Orange, Blue or Titanum. Hopefully the next white one will pop in too.. if I ever get one.

My First 3 I saw was a white one and I laid my eyes on it so the white got my attention.

Anyway Post Pics of ur ride soon ;)

Some preliminary pics...

Hey,

Here are some pics that i took last night at a gas station. Sorry for the bad quality because it was rather dark and my car was a bit dirty due to the rain.

Thanks!

I would like it better if the blue shows up a bit brighter, but not as bright as let's say in a WRX STi. But it's still a good combination nevertheless.



Regarding the price, I just paid the MSRP that is on the mazda.ca website. I tried to bargain a bit more on the value of my trade-in but they wouldn't budge too much. :roll:

I think seeing your car convinced me that ralley white is the color for me! I even think the blue seats really cool looking. I was considering titanium, but that's going to be the new silver, black is sweet, but so hard to keep clean, so now I'm on white.

Sweet car. The white looks great on the Sport. I really liked the Black but it shows too many scratches/paint swirls etc as it ages. my next choice was white but already own 1 white vehicle. Wife wanted silver. Settled on Titanium even tho it is turning out to be a bit of a common color. I never did see the white on a sedan but it sure looks good on the sport 8)
