I'm back in the game now. I traded in my 07 Mazdaspeed 3 today on a brand new 07 WRB STi. VERY happy to be in a Subie again!

Personally, I think having both is the best option.

And welcome back.

Thank you both. I just wasn't real happy with the Speed 3's weak power up top, and little things like no traction, losing value, and some build quality stuff. But it was a great car too, this one is just MUCH better.

I sold my second bugeye a long while back. I was driving the Speed 3 for about 6 or 7 months.

Mazda 3's AC is terrible too - incapable of cooling the car down in our summers...

I had the black one as well. Also no problem with the AC. Mine was the GT, so maybe the climate control helped this???

must have different system - I bought mine when it wasn't so hot and suffered all summer - I took it in a few times and even the loaners were lame... The turbo was fun to drive though which might distract from the temperature!
