When I was shopping for a new car in April of 2006 I went though plenty of options before I arrived at the 6. I needed something practical with a little bit of grunt, something that handled decently and rode comfortably. I needed something that could get me to and from college with most of my life packed inside. The 6 was that car. Times change.
A certain set of wheels has been on my radar now for a solid year. It's an award recipient, a comparison winner and a Mazda fanboy's subcompact wet dream. For as long as this car has been available, I've been singing it's praises. So what was stopping me? The color choices! Enter the 2008.5 Mazdaspeed3 in Metropolitan Grey and Crystal White. Yes, please!
The little tart herself:

2008.5 Speed3 GT in Metropolitan Grey, no Nav.

Call it what you like, you'd better get used to that view.

that colour makes it invisible. good choice!

I'm a sucker for grey. The 6 was grey, the girl's RX-8 is grey... grey grey grey.
It's just a shame so many people have bought into it. Silver is the new beige, and grey is the new silver.

It won't even matter in a few years. All cars will be white.

I had to bump this out of my own amusement: The trip computer is addictive. I haven't had one since the Passat and I'd forgotten how fun they can be.
I could swear I looked down at one point while I was dashing down an on-ramp today and the instant consumption read "WTF."

I see 4mpg on a regular basis in mine (07 3s) when giving it a lash.

QFT. The MS3 is a great car but a little bait for LEO if you ask me. That color looks nice and understated.
Enjoy your new car. Its a blast I bet.
