Well, I just traded in my SuperCharged scion tC for a Silver Mazdaspeed3 GT. I can't wait to get my hands on it. I will let you all know how things are going. One of my best friends has a Mazda 3 and he was a big reason for me getting it. Can't wait to get to know you all.

I have potential friends who want to supercharge their TC...how did you like it? I bet you'd be happier with the MS3 though...how much did you add on top of the trade?

DO NOT I repeat, DO NOT let them waste their money on SuperCharging their tC. They will NOT get what they want out of it. I will tell you the complete story someday, but right now, all I can say is that it was more of a problem than anything. The most power I got out of it was 227hp and 197 ft/lbs. Thats with a 9lb pulley, intake, exhaust, and header. Really don't think it is worth it. And also, the warranty that they talk about is TOTAL crap. You have to go through days of anguish before you can get things done.

Cool I got the same color except its a sport. I've had it for about 3 weeks and I have 700 miles on it. I've been opening it up more and more in the last few days and have had lots of fun doing it.

One of the bad reasons for living in Cali...everything else is more expensive...thats about the same price but MSRP. So I'm thinking OTD would be somewhere around $25k. I was really hesitant to buy the 3 knowing that the ms3 was out...I got my s-touring 3 for $21,400 OTD...argh, its sooo tempting!

I got the car for 500 less then msrp however with tax it was 24,300. I put 10k down and got 3k for my trade-in. Now I pay $335 for 36/mths.

When I went in I said I wanted 2000 off msrp after an hour of negotiating he gave me some BS that he would give me the internet pricing and take 500 off msrp. I still think I got a crappy price... however my Car budget was little over 30K. Having that budget I know I passed on allot of cars.....but I'm happy no buyers remorse, no regrets.

Well I got it this afternoon. And it was RAINING all day. I LOVE the car though. I am soo glad I made the decision that I did. I do have one question though. When you turn the lights on, isnt the spedometer supposed to dim? I even tried to dim them, but they won't dim at all.. Just wondering.

Well, I feel like a complete moron, thanks for the help though.
I am already looking into a Super Sequential... Hope I can talk the fiance into allowing it. Probably not for a little while though.. She has me on a short leash now.. HAHAHAHA

Leave the SSQV, get a race pipe. More fun that way, and faster too.
