We are selling my wife's MS3 Grand Touring. Due to her commute, she's buying something with an Automatic . Anyway, this has been an absolute awesome car to us over the last 3 years. Great torque, adequate power, good fuel economy, sublime handling, and a really nice interior to boot. Car has 94,000 miles on it with regular maintenance performed. We have used Rotella T6 in the car for the last several years. For those that notice the Cobb Tuning plate holder, it actually came from my Bugeye when I used to run a Cobb AP. This car's motor is completely stock. Here is her ad:Some pictures:My Mazdaspeed3 is extremely agile and fun to drive. It has high horsepower (263 hp) and alot of torque for a small car (280 lb.-ft), making acceleration intense when you want it to be.
Although the fuel economy spec boasts 18/26, I've squeezed up to 28 MPG out of it on a gentle, relaxing highway drive. This car maintains tight control at highway speeds.
Although front wheel drive car's aren't typically ideal for snowy conditions, this Mazda had no problem getting us home safely while driving through a big snowstorm in Ohio last winter.
This car has a nice quality interior. The seats are leather and alcantara.
This car has been well-loved, and includes several upgrades to the stock parts:
- Einbach Pro Kit Springs (Tight suspension makes you feel very connected to the road beneath you. You won't lose grip "zoom zoom"-ing around corners in this car.) *I will include the stock springs as well.
- Koni Yellow Struts (This was the smartest installment. The new high-end struts made an enormous difference in the ride quality.)
- Mazda RX8 Wheels
$12,500 OBO. Make me an offer.
