Well, for a few days I thought I was the only one in my town with one (a very cool Titanium Grey 5 door sport hatch), but the other night I saw a Grey 4 door sedan at a Walmart parking lot. This car really is a head turner and is awesome in every way.
I think that this has something to do with the fact that dealerships are trying hard to liquidate their existing Proteges. People like deals, and since the Protege is a really good car (and cheaper) people might be going that way for the next little while (until they run out), unless they are looking for the 3 specifically.
I haven't seen any adds for the new 3, so that might have something to do with the lack of them on the roads. The masses might not know about them yet.
I actually saw a grey hatch two days ago. Had two young asian guys in it, they were going to Starpukes. Brief head turning by both of us, but it was a busy intersection, so not much we could do to cheak the other out.
It was pretty ugly, if you ask me.
But I guys the TitGr just doesn't do it for me. I'm sure he was thinking the same thing about me....
Now I just want to get mine back from service!! I get to find out what the rear brake issue is - look for it in a new topic to come soon!!
I saw a 3i a few days back, it was at night and it was dark so I couldn't get a good look at it. It was driven by an older guy, driving slow in the right lane so I couldn't slow down to look at it. But thats it, haven't seen a lot driving around yet which is kinda cool because when I get mine then I'll be turning heads
Saw the first Mazda3 on the road here in Phoenix yesterday. The dealers have them, just no one driving them. It was a silver sedan, didn't look half bad. It was during rush hour, so I coudln't really get a good look at it. The only reason I recognized it is because it stood out from every other car on the road. Can't wait till I get mine! Also saw the first Scion xB on the road yesterday after a hockey game, interesting doesn't begin to describe that car.
I just picked up my M3s last night, and I haven't seen any on the road either.
I got the solar yellow one and It took two weeks of searching for this color before a dealer could fine it, it was over 100 miles away from the dealer I ended up getting it from. Too bad they had to drive it instead of putting it on a truck
