After over 4 months of searching for the right car, I finally found the right one.

It's an SP23 sedan with 6-speed manual in Aurora Blue.

The car has 34,000km, only driven her for a couple of hours but really impressed with the power and torque of the 2.3 litre engine.

:lol: You have to look at the location before you make those statements. The OP is in Australia where the SP23 trim is much different then our limited 05 production run.

Thanks for the comments people.

If you're interested, visit www.mazda3.com.au for details on what is sold here in Australia.

So the SP23 was a limited edition sold for only one year in one colour in the United States ?

Correct, we in the US had a SP23 label in 05 only. It came in a unique carbon gray colour with anodized rims and many bells and whistles.

Not sure what you mean by "beautiful cable throttle bodies", in Australia both the 2.0 and 2.3 litre engines utilise "drive-by-wire" or electronic throttles.
