Let's start off by saying I know, I should've got a speed3. I got this vehicle as a graduation gift after earning my master's degree in 2013. My parents made the hefty down payment and I've been paying the other half since then. This was my third car in my lifetime, but the first car I ever modified. This car has shown me how much I love cars and how much I enjoy modifying them. I have literally shed blood, sweat, and tears, into this thing. I've installed every part myself in my own garage, or my friend's garages. I know she's slow, but at least she's low (enough).  I didn't plan on doing any serious power modifications, but all I'm looking into at this time is a tune by Orange Virus Tuning and possibly headers down the line. I'm currently in medical school so I planned to keep this car until I finish. Once I'm out of school, I'll likely end up selling this or trading in for something that comes factory turbo'd. Don't see a good reason to stay in the Mazda family, unless they come out with an AWD Speed3 ;).
