My New Toy:

So I picked up my new daily today, a 2007 Mazdaspeed3 in cosmic blue. This thing is a very nice piece of machinery and I am very impressed with what I got for such a reasonable price. 6 Speeds, satellite Radio, a whole bunch of airbags, TURBO and a great sleeper car. Don't worry I am keeping the e30 to drive to work about once a week and for weekends/track days etc. My plan was to have it out of Daily Driver Duty by 140K but it went a little over and its at 141k right now, so don't worry I won't be going anywhere.

+1 Nice daily driver. They were somewhat problematic when they first came out a few years ago, but later models are doing very well.

Kudos for a good daily driver.

Does that mean you can now go all out track car on the E30?

^I will get another e30 for all out on the track at some point, but mine is too nice to convert. I definitely have to get some other rims for winter tires so i'm going to look into using the rims on the car for them and then get something better with better tires for the summer rims.

It under-steers a little but nothing too bad, the car gives really nice feedback and feels very stable and easy to throw around, Mazdaspeed did a great job on controlling the torque steer. I am taking this to my next bmwcca drivers school to learn how to really drive it and learn a little more about the dynamics at a place where i can do it without getting into trouble and lesser chances of hurting myself or anyone else, GOTO A BMWCCA drivers school at a track you won't regret it.
