Been waiting for months to get this car

2008 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3 Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I waited for 4 months to get a black grand touring. I figured the extra 2 grand was worth it for the leather, stereo, Xenons, LEDs etc. The car drives perfectly. It sits low and has tight steering. It's my first turboed car and it packs a wallop. 2nd - 4th gears throw you back. Going from 5th to 6th when merging today was great. It went 60-80 in what felt like no time at all. Finally a car that makes my daily drives fun. Gas mileage on the premium fuel and tire prices are gonna be nasty, but it's all worth it.

Best Features

Adj Xenons, the interior and exterior styling is amazing, the power, the steering, the stereo, the wagon functionality, red stitching, aluminum pedals, the seats, the glovebox is huge, it basically is the perfect car.

Worst Features

Larger more spread out speedometer. The 60 MPH mark isn't even a 1/4th way up the circle so you'll be hitting 90 and not even realize it until blue and red lights are flashing in the rearview.
