I'll try to do something with the Mazda3 Sport later.. Im intending to buy the Mazda3 Sedan and just wanted to see what it would look like lowered.. Than i got bored and started seeing if it would be a good ideal to bring out a coupe.

"Background kinda odd"
If you mean on the driver window where you see two RX8 front ends.. yeah.. i was lazy.. Again, just a quick look at a would be Coupe..

But of course.. When i purchaes the Mazda3 Sedan, im not going to do anything to it.. Keep it Stock,, nice and clean.

Reason is.. my last car "Civic SiR" was stolen 1 month ago.. Im trying to get away with any car that looks done up...

If my car were that low, I'd have to avoid all speed bumps and speed tables in this city. The ones at the mall were so large, it would scrape regular cars. So many people complained, they chopped the height in half and they still scrape. Oh, and the train tracks.

I like the original sedan better.
I agree. I am getting more antsy to get my MZ3 after seeing that stock pic. But unfortunately, I have to wait until March probably :cry: :wink:

I dunno...i kinda like the lowered look....although the chop looks a little too low...but nice job anyways.

Imp180psu: You're getting antsy about getting the MZ3? Heck, i'm just itching for a test drive.....but like you, i will have to wait for a while to own one of my own...right now it's looking like summer '05 (yep, that's right), but i'm hoping to push it up a year......so i just gotta do my thing, you know?....work hard, win the lottery, go on Jeopardy...you know, the same old same old..... :lol:

Funny thing is... I haven't even test driven it yet either, but all the positive reviews are encouraging. In my area (Harrisburg, PA), there were no 3's at my local dealer as of last Sunday. I am not sure if I should go for a test drive sooner, making it clear to the salesman that I will have to wait to buy in March, or wait until March when I am ready to buy. Any opinions/what have others done?

Take a test drive and see if you really like it. Then around February you can go in and order the EXACT configuration you want fresh from Japan and tell your dealer you will only pick it up on March XX, 2004

Thanks Dinu for the advice. I think I will do just as you say and go for a test drive, making it clear that I am not ready to buy now, but will be back later in Feb./March. If the dealer/salesman doesn't respect that, then they don't deserve my business anyway. In my area I have 2 dealers within about 8-10 miles of each other, so there should be at least some competition for my business. Also there are a couple others about 30 miles away if I get desperate :wink: :roll: I just want to SEE a 3 "s" with sport package at this point!! :lol:

Yeah, definitely test drive it first.....i mean you wanna buy it right so its gotta be something that you know you will love for years to come....but yeah, just don't take it personally when dealers give you the "brush off" because you're not gonna buy anything now. They did that to my sister and my friend at a Toyota dealership and it sux...but your experience might be different....don't let my tales discourage you.....
But you're right...if the dealer doesn't respect then they don't deserve your business....remember, picking the right dealer is also a big part of buying a car.

I agree with the test drive.

Im not getting my Mazda3 until May/June '05 but i have already test driven both the Mazda3 sedan (Automatic and Manual). I personal like the manual... feels like there is more power however i will have to go with the automatic (Girl friend... and im lazy to teach..)

I told the sales guy and they had no problem with test driving it. I also got them to do a quick On the Road Cost (just to see how much it would cost and what the other fees were..

As for the photoshop.. Im not planning to do anything to the car.. Im leaving as is from the Factory.. That is why im going with the GFX package.. I just wanted to see how it would look lowered and as a coupe.. Seeing if it looked like a BMW (which i can't afford).

I really want to get the car now. (nice to be the first in the neigbourhood to have a Mz3). but it will be a waste at the moment. (planning to drive my company car for the whole winter instead), don't have to pay insurance/gas.
