A few of the new 3's hiding at the Steveston Lot after being unloaded from the ship. This is Richmond BC Canada. Only had my crappy cell phone.

Re: New 3 landed Ricmond BC

Honestly I'm liking them a little more, and hating the back a little more too.

The front doesn't look bad.

Re: New 3 landed Ricmond BC

My quick impressions:

The wheels are nice and a a great improvement over the snowflakes (they have plastic on them in the pics).

The silver/grey hatch is a great colour, looked like a bmw colour. Nice.

The rear lights and the front end struck me as odd (common critique), but I am sure that over time they will become well accepted. This always happens with new styling.

When I saw the new one parked next to the old one, the old one looked really dated. (There were at least 100+ old ones in the lot)



I have an 05 GT loaded and I am waiting for the new Speed3.

My thoughts exactly! The previous 3 aged nicely until the new 3 came out

Nice find!!

I remember someone posting pics of my (and the first batch) Crystal White Pearl speed3 to hit North America in the same lot.

My guess is that the wiper arms collect dirt and salt when they are on the windshield. There is also a greasy substance that they spray on the cars when they ship, and perhaps they don't want it to get on the wipers.

Re: New 3 landed Ricmond BC

so the pics of the sedan have dual exhaust but its hard to tell from this pick but does the hatch not have dual exhaust? I think the hatch is sex but i know i'm a minority here.

Why are it's wiper arms up in the air? :thinking:

They also probably do that to prevent them freezing to the windshield with snow/freezing rain. In case they are being moved right after crappy weather comes through.
