o hi smile

seems a little expensive, imo. dealership or private party? i just kbb-ed it and it said around 15k in fair condition and 17500k in excellent condition for a 08 sport with 30k miles. i would join mazda3forums.com or a local forum if there's one in your area and see if you can get a deal there. that's pretty low mileage for an 08 though. i almost got a red 07 gt when i was looking at em, they're pretty sexy.


edit* there's someone in my area that's asking 16k for a 07 cosmic blue with 40k miles.

yeah, i doubt the dealer will budge much on that price then. what area are you in? maybe check the surrounding states/ cities too if you're willing to drive. on a side note, my stock turbo is starting to eat shit finally [81K].

^^^Seems like a fair price. It has an aftermarket exhaust and those suede door inserts/seats are not factory. It might have other mods so check out the car yourself/make sure it's running right. yaknow, all that good stuff.

you on mazda3forums or mazdas247 ?

this is the best deal i can find for now

autos.yahoo.com/used-cars/mazda-mazdaspeed3-cars376590206;_ylt=AhY11flCtwMOCTsHIIA9.bDJWo54;_ylv=3?geo=true&sortcol=price&sortdir=up&location=Virginia+Beach%2C+VA+23456&listingtype=used&model=mazdaspeed3&make=mazda&distance=50

what do you guys think?


seems like a decent price for a GT. might wanna go test drive it first and see if it has the turbo smoking problem though.

I'm on both forums but I'm most active at moccforums.com
It's a Mazda forum for California residents if you haven't heard about it. Way more active than the other two imo.

i drive a mazda 3 sport GT . i love mine, but i thought i got it for a little over priced. back in 08 new 31k. too late to have regrets but i got it kinda rushed cause i moved and needed a car quick, so didnt have much time to shop around. plus most plACES only had the 09 cause i got it in sept, and the 09 was kinda ugly imo.


anywayz, mazda's are amazing, plus i like how they are still made in japan, since they usually make better quality things as evident with most of their products.

Yeah I did. I did the trick where you put index cards between the rim&tire. They've been holding up pretty good. Damn good deals you got.
I was using a D5000 w/ a 35mm.

I've been driving my mom's 09 sedan GT and my dad's 09 6 GT. Since my family are pretty valuable customers to our local Mazda we drove the speed3. It has nice interior and that thing is peppy!!!
