What to get...

Well for my 18th birthday my parents are getting me a car and I want a mazda 3. They want me to get the sedan, but want the new mazdaspeed3. They think that insurance will be way too high for it though. Anyone know what the insurance difference might be?
P.S. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place. 1st post :D

I'd have to agree with the majority on this one. I'm 19, and the 3i sedan works just fine for me.

With the necessary mods, you'll be pumpin' out the same amount of whp as a 2.3 3s (non-turbo), and it'll be a lot less than 5 G's for the mods, let me tell ya!
Yeah, go with the 3i sedan. (good for a poor college student haha)
AGREED. You can easily get your car up to around 200hp for close to a the math man.

for one thing, insurance stays the same (you're still paying sedan insurance), and CAI & Exhaust give noticeable gains.
sure, you'll be spending more money on parts to compensate for speed, but is the MS3 really worth several thousand dollars more in the long run?
just my opinion, feel free to criticize...
