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

Get the basic 3i sedan. It's cost effective on payments and insurance. It has enough zoom zoom to keep you happy at the moment. I know that's not what you want to hear but it does make sense.

To be a doomsayer though...get the Speed3 and you will either have so many speeding tickets that your insurance drops you or you'll wreck it. I've seen this too many times. 19 year old barback at my bar got an s2000 from his 'rents...totaled it 2 months later. After that he got a 350Z....totaled that too. He can't be totally held accountable though...his parent's could've use a good smack to the noggin'.
