They make the V6 in MT?
When a buddy bought is 2001 Accord he had to get the 4banger because he wanted MT

Maybe it has changed since

Mazdaspeed FTW
More power, less weight, better wow factor

The Accord comes with a six-speed manual on both the sedan and coupe now. Unfortunately, they only come on the EX-L(eather), which retails for $27-28k.

I just got an internet quote from a local dealer - 2,4630. That's probably w/o freight, but it is the v6, MT & leather - EX V-6, 6-speed.

The Accord and MZ3 are very different cars designed for very different audiences.

The Accord is smooth, soft, quick, refined and quiet. It's going to be replaced with a new model in late 2007.

The MZ3 is truly a "wild child" like the Mazda ads say. It rough, loud, very edgy and very fast. I almost bought one a month ago, but it's too noisy for me.

Have you driven both cars? If not, I strongly recommend you take 30 minute test drives. That will settle the issue.

Please let us know what you think after the test drives.

Two different cars... your choice... the 08' Accord Coupe looks HOT.... let's hope it handles a little less like a burning marshmallow....

Apples and Oranges here. Yeah it makes sense on paper but they're not much else alike...

But if it came down to choosing ONLY these two cars, i'd take the Speed in a heartbeat.

Depends on what you want.

If I wanted comfort I'd go with the Accord

If I wanted a sportier ride, I'd go with the Speed3

Both are nice cars and you can't go wrong with either. One advantage of the Accord right now, at least in my area, is that you can find them under MSRP while the Speed3 is going for MSRP or even over.

Had a buddy pick up an 06 6speed accord sedan just before I left Jersey. I drove it for a minute....it has nice pick-up and a great interior. less powerful than the ms3 smaller, and it's a HONDUH
