Sheesh... just saw my first MZ3 on the road other than mine. It was this morning at around 8AM or so on the outer loop of the beltway near Braddock Road exit. It was a dark colored sedan with a lot of road salt, driven by a small asian girl, following a B3000 truck driven by a guy. Couldn't tell if it was an i or s. Didn't notice me at all. Where's the love? :frown:

In other news, kept up with a EVO down a ramp last night after he took a long hard look at my car and proceeded to gun it. I have no illusions, he probably had plenty of grip left. Got checked out by a riced out neon with unpainted body kit. Driver did the full 360 drive-around.

I noticed in general that there seem not to be too many Mazdas around.

EDIT: Thread title :twisted:

Here is what the Evo VIII can do... Granted it is the UK version that has a superior power distribution/traction system. Click here. It beat out a Lambo Murcielago on Top Gear's track. That was one of the reason why I didn't get the Evo VIII because as usual, we get the watered down version here in the U.S.

But I see what you are saying about the Mazda 3's being rare. The Mazda dealer right off post still has not sold a single MZ3 since the last time I visited them. The dealer pissed me off so I drove 20 miles to the next dealer to get mine... but I still drive by that dealer to check their inventory.. :p Mazda needs to come up with a better commercial... not that "There's this car.... with all this stuff....." BS...

Another NOVA sighting

I too live in northern Virginia. I think I caught a glimpse of one today while I was working out in the gym. I only got a shot at the rear end of it so I'm note completely sure it was one, besides everyone KNOWS that I need to have my glasses fixed or get Lasik :D

I know that Brown's Mazda in Fairfax has sold several of the cars. In fact, the week I bought mine I think they had sold 3 or 4 others.[/url]

When I picked up my 3 tonight, the dealership told me it was the first one they've sold. I found this out since I had a couple questions about the small little things, and the dealer basically shrugged his shoulders saying he hadn't played around with the 3s too much.

I agree - what is that commercial supposed to be about? My car has more than stuff, okay....

I have only seen one other 3 so far. It was a sedan, couldn't tell i or s. Pretty surprised that I haven't more than that yet. But it definitely feels cool knowing that not many others have a car like mine. The dealers seemed to have about 6-7 each. I haven't seen many RX8's either, but some of the dealers here have tons of them.

my dealer had a ton when I went in to buy mine. I don't think they are cutting deals though, because the one I wanted has been up on the rack out front for over a month.

But there were at least 20 on the lot when I bought mine.

Wed afternoon at 1215pm, I saw a 3i in Starlight Green going west on Lee Hwy near Gallows Rd. A few minutes later I saw it going back in the eastbound direction. I think it had new temp tags.

dear non-mazda northern va drivers,

please get out of my way, especially on the prince william parkway. your '2 miles above the speed limit means i'm gonna stay in the fast lane' attitude sucks.

love,

boomom

Hey Boomom, I think I saw that same white HB last week. They were on Sudley Road about 3pm or so on Thursday up by where we met up, if I remember right.

You are right.. definitely more fun stopping and yakking with someone :) I'm almost surpirsed the folks behind us didn't get annoyed.....
