When I went to the dealership I had fully intended on buying a Mazdaspeed3. However I was a dumb kid with no money, bad credit, and less than a month at my first full time job. The base model was what I could afford. While I wish it made more power, I am not disappointed at all with this purchase. It's a great car. Excellent handling, reliability and fuel economy. I still wish I had a turbo or at the very least the 2.5L engine, but both of those are fairly simple upgrades that I will do to this car in due time. Until then I'm going to continue enjoying what I do with a pretty basic car. I've managed to do a bit of drag racing with it and with some decent success. My second competitive event for bracket racing I managed to win the class with a 16.0 dial in running within .1 seconds of that time throughout the entire day. A few more modifications since and my current personal best 1/4 mile of 15.595 which caused me to break out by just .005 seconds on my 15.6 second dial time. This coming season I will continue to drag race while also trying my hand at autocross for the first time. I hope to do well but realize there will be quite a learning curve(no pun intended).
