First, my other car is an 06 Infiniti G35 coupe loaded. Great solid car and fun to drive. The ONLY draw back is it really has 2 seats and we need more. I do not want to give up my G35 and my wife does not drive. After A LOT of research and test driving the MazdaSpeed 3 gives me everything my G35 has to offer plus the ability to seat 4. So I get to keep my G35 and now I have another sports car that does everything very well. Actually, I enjoy driving my SPD3 now more then the G35. I don't feel like I'm missing anything when I drive the SPD3. My wife loves it too.
Seats, turbo, 6 disc mp3 player, ipod aux jack. Interior lights at night.
There's an issue with the 2008.5 bose system. Volume settings 32,33,34 are dull, and sound jumps when you hit 35. Hopefully they will fix this soon. Keep in mind you are really jamming at that volume. Excellent car for the money.
