Well after about 3 weeks of looking and shopping around, I finally purchased my new Mazda 3. After about an hour of haggling for this velocity red 5 door we just could not get the price down far enough so I ended up wiht the Solar Yellow 5 door with 5-speed, Moonroof, and 6 cd changer. Only got to drive it straight to work after I picked it up but boy was it an enjoyable ride :D . Anyways I should be able to get some pics up later tomorrow after I get my digi cam back, and just as a small poll for the price I paid.... after tax title , tax and all that good stuff I ended with a final on the road price of 19,400. Just wondering if compared to others I got a good deal, I did not get any discounts for the mazda loyalty or college grad. Anyways GO Mazda :)

M3 pricing

Good price at 19.4.... I just picked up my Solar Yellow hatchback last nite, and I paid 19.8 with everything on it accept Leather and the Navi system.
It's such a sweet color, I wonder why people aren't getting this color more, too flashy or something?

Solar Yellow

I fell in love with the yellow, I liked the red and deep blue too but there wasn't that spark that the yellow had. This may sound funny, but the shape of the car goes well with the yellow color.

how long have you had your orange M3?

raitchison, cool.

The weather's so bad out here on the east coast, I don't even want to drive it to work, to much damn rock-salt on the road.

I'm still getting used to the 5-speed, I'm a little rusty, it's a real smooth engine though...

The Mazda3's five speed takes getting used to, primarily because of the delay in the electronic throttle response. It makes driving smooth difficult. Even those with extensive experience driving a manual will find the Mazda3 to take a little getting use to.

Hmmm... interesting. I finally demoed a 3 last Saturday and was amazed at how easy it was to drive smoothly... I never noticed any delay in the throttle?

Dinu,

Yea, My main problem is going from 1st to 2nd gear, it's a little jumpy, I don't blame the car, I blame me... Yea, I WILL get pics of my Yellow 3 by the end of the day, some nice hi-rez ones, can't wait.

I really don't want to work, just want to practice driving all day.... :p

Hello fellow solar yellow MZ3 owner. You are the second one on the boards that I know of. I must say good choice. Post some pics when you get a chance, I would love to see the HB in this most excellent color. :)

SolarMZ3,

Thanks! Yellow was the only color for me, blue was nice, so was the red, but Yellow was the hands-down winner.

I'll get some nice pics up on this thread tonight.

How long have you had your 3?
