2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Bought it in Feb 2003 and have about 5000 miles on it. I've got to tell you, it's the only thing that gets me through the work day (hope my girl doesn't read this). No one else offers a better package of performace and looks. While some other cars may be faster, my 2nd choice was a WRX, it takes at least $4-5Gs to get the look up to par. And my baby is no slouch either. Got to say the best victory was over a Porsche Carrera... he dusted me off the line, but I cought up by 85 mph and started the pass at 100... you should've seen the look on his face! If you haven't driven one, do so before you buy anything else.

Best Features

Paint and the looks it gets, limited Racing VALUE, Hart wheels, interior styling, mp3 player, ability to smoke all hondas (including S2000), Limited Slip Diff that makes driving fun again
