    Shiva, have you gotten my e-mails about the performance chips?

    I understand there's a huge push from other 3 owners to get Diablo Sport to make a chip for the 3. http://www.diablosport.com/main.php

    I e-mailed them, you should too!

    I might have to copy Nathan G's color, that or Strato Blue.

    It is, but the guy that runs it is a moderator on the mazda6club and he's a true douchebag, so I don't go there :squint:

    The Blue and Orange on are very, very rare. I'd get one of those. Nothing against my color, but I've seen about 5 3s of the same color just in Orlando. :hs:

    :rofl: I lurk, so it's all good. I just go there to look for any new info.

    Someone posted about the rear brakes and got their's replaced with better ones for free. Of course, you had to totally bitch out the dealer to get it done. :hs:

    I sell Mazdas in Ontario. The most common colour for the 3 so far is titanium grey.

    I drive an orange GT Sport as my demo, it's pretty impressive for it's price. Either of the engines are a good choice.

    When dealing with a dealer discount, I am on the Ford S Plan, is there any negotiating below that or is it pretty much the price you pay then out the door?
