Hey folks. I sold the old Mazda Protege's and bought this car. It's in great condition and am loving the 2.0 turbo. Will be keeping an eye out for low level mods and maintenance musts.
Thanks, Jon.

I'm going to crawl under this car sometime in the next few days and get familiar with it. The previous own said she had a shop tune it up, including oil change and spark plugs. The seed pods in the oil fill cap recess makes me wonder if they did the work. The hesitation on take off is another clue they might not have done what they said they did. I'm going to find out. What I've found so far is that this is a Wolfsburg Edition which I'm happy about. The suspension is very stiff for daily driving but it handles great. I'm very happy.

I'm still a little unclear about this engine. Is it an MK7? I would really like to source a PDF shop manual.
