I owned a 2003 Mazdaspeed Protégé with
20k prior to the R32. The Mazda was a
total "piece" which forced me to sell
it after less than a year of
ownership. I purchased the R32 in
March '03 and have loved every minute
since. It's my first 6cyl AWD vehicle
and I will never go back to anything
less. This car performs, looks, sounds
and handles amazing. The Pipes with
the baffle mode turned off sound
sweet!!! German engineering kicks ass.

Lower suspension (the 20AE GTI is
lower) more power, AWD driver control
similar to the STI and a turbo.
