Finally, after 4 weeks of waiting for my car to come, I am the owner of a Titanium 4dr 5-Speed with everything but Navi. It came in on Friday, finished the paper work on Saturday, and picked it up Monday after work.

Dealer installed 3M Invisible Bra, and I put on the 3.5" antenna as soon as I got home. I hope some time this week I will have the tint put on, 35% all around. But the weather and my hook-up is not cooperating right now. I'm also waiting for the Hoen's to come in.

You can find out how much I paid for it here... How much are you paying OTR?

This is my first manual and man is this car easy to drive. My favorite thing about this car is the leather, it gives a touch of class that none of the economy cars can come close to. Of course I didn't think about economy getting everything I did, but I'm not complaining :p. My least favorite is the stereo. Plan on doing something similar to vaBooM (thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it :) ).

Here are pics of my car, more will come soon. Pics @ cardomain

Any Questions?

Follow up...
It hasn't been that cold here this past week, never really fell below 15F, and I haven't noticed the leather seats being uncomfortably cold. If you can take a little cold air you can take a little cold chair. :lol: I keed I keed.

I just posted some new pics on www.cardomain.com


more to come tomorrow :p

Sweet. I am also looking at the Tit Grey S-4 door but with auto. BTW, how much did the clear bra cost?

I am not so keen on the HB, but I think Mazda 3 has the best looking 4 door sedan on the market (for the money).

$495, I've tried taking pictures of it but you never see the bra. Hopefully I will get it right soon.

Did you think about getting the wind deflector? I know the moonroof has a metal bar deflector but was wondering if a "bigger" deflector would be better. Might be hard to know as the weather has been cold.

I gotta agree with you on that one, I love the leather! It just looks soo classy. My car is silver with the black leather, a great color combination on any car. Congrats on your new car, Enjoy! :D

The wind deflector would remove a lot of the road noise. But it takes so much away from the sleekness of the car. By the way I was able to get a pretty good shot of where the clear bra comes up to on the hood with this morning’s front melting on the hood.
It almost looks like something is wrong with my color of my car if you didn't know what you were looking at.

Wow, it comes up above the headlights! I was debating on whether to get the bra or not, but that pic has me convinced. How much did it cost to put on?

Car looks great!

Congratulations on your 3! Did you have to wait 4 weeks b/c of the leather/5-speed combo? I've been hunting around for a 5-speed sedan with leather, sport, abs, and moonroof, and 2 dealers have told me that the combo doesn't exist in any exterior color!

thx

Yeah, there was only one dealer in the state that was receiving that combination. Since I live in MA, I had to get the special emissions package added on so I didn't go to RI or VT to pick up one the dealers had there. It also limited my ability to get a better deal. 2.5% over invoice is not bad though. Check out mazdausa.com inventory feature to see if they have any in or coming to your area.
