Talking Gotta love that new car smell..........

Well here is my new DD. Contour was fun, but became a money pit. Decided to get something with a warranty. So here she is a 2010 Mazda3 Hatch. With the 2.5/6spd combo. This car out handles the contour 10 fold, but doesn't quite have the same performance, but I gained a good bit of MPG's. Its a well balanced car! I love it.

The two cars shortly before I left








A very happy car lol


factory projectors FTW!




6spd manual FTW!!






Also as built in MPG/Avg MPG and miles till empty!




Here in the next month or so will be HID's, new wheels, tint this week and then exhaust.

Edit:

Here's some pics of the interior at night





Love how the projectors cut off

The center console display is neat. Are the peddles covered in that fuzzy carpet stuff like on the floor, or is that just a jedi mind trick?
