>tfw just signed off on an ND
>tfw even though it's better overall than every previous generation, the only reason you bought it over a used one is because you couldn't help but be inspired by the amount of engineering, thought, work, heart and soul that went into bringing it back to it's pure 90's sisters
>tfw absolutely head over heels for her and the future of Mazda
>tfw gonna keep her forever till the day you die

They deserved every single penny I spent on her. I really hope Mazda continues to grow and brings us better and more powerful versions of this same type of design philosophy in the future.

I have an American car because I support my economy unlike you rice burner driving traitors.

I'm debating getting an mx5 auto. Should I go club sport or base model?

The sport is the base model

>his car was built outside of america with parts imported from china
roflmao, by supporting "american companies' you are also supporting the theft of millions upon millions of tax dollars, dealing a fatal blow to the welfare of your nation as a whole.
>>
>>14213478
Honestly man, I would buy an American car

But none are light enough for me. My goal/dream car was a 2000lb Lotus. Mazda is the only company making cars that even come close to that weight and analog level of handling.

Maybe one day we will get a lightweight Foxbody, who knows
>>
>>14213497
meant club or sport

OP here

Can you guys answer the question I posed please?
>>
>>14213478
Funny that my American Ford AND Chevy were made in Canada. While my GF's Hyundai was made in USA.
>>
Hey /o/, should I get a V6 accord coupe auto or a GTI DSG?
>>
>>14213525
Honestly you can't go wrong with either, if you're serious then go sit in both and see which one you prefer.
>>
>>14213488
club
>>
>>14213525
Accord cause cheaper maintenance, looks better, faster
>>
>>14213525
Accord coupes suck because the accord is a great sedan. The coupe version is not any sportier. It lacks any sporty features a sports car has. And it's missing rear doors a proper sedan has. Get a V6 Sedan. Looks are w/e, it's an Accord btw
>>
yay mazda
here's hoping the fiat 124 abarth gets them to finally turbo the thing from the factory
>>
I bought a Chevy Cobalt in automatic because:

1. I had no interest in cars 4 years ago
2. I thought buying a 3 year old car was a good idea 4 years ago
3. I felt satisfied with going from A--->B with no excitement 4 years ago

There is a nearby dealer with nearly the exact same car in year/model/trim/mileage except it's a sedan and a manual. I'll see if I can swap cars with them until I'm fully independant and can get something I want.

What do I want? Not sure. Evo, Miata, Toybaru, SN-95, something like that.

This. Not trying to shill for Mazda here but they made/make some of the most driver focused sports cars. One of the last few car company's that I have any hope for.

ive driven the new gti with a dsg and was very, very impressed. 10/10 daily driver aside from the cost. i cant say much for the accord as i have no experience with it

>>14213561
Mazda and Ford are really the only 2 automakers I'm interested in supporting right now. Everyone else is getting worse and worse with each passing year and at a rapid pace. They're probably going to be the last 2 high-volume companies providing manual transmissions and driver cars.
>>
>>14213554
here's hoping for an ESC turbo with 0 lag, better seats, and less body roll

Also the option of 16/15 inch wheels

Can't wait to see the next gen mazdaspeed3 at NAIAS this week.

That's weird I could swear Mazda in the 90's was making Fords their rangers for them under the name b4000.
That probably the only time a major American auto maker has had a massive deal with an Asian or European auto maker right.
>>
>>14213661
I was pretty close to buying a B4000, but I ended up not needing a truck. Did I miss out on anything?

It's the same car except better looking, a factory turbocharged motor and more storage space.

Do you not like torque??

>why did you buy your car o?
I really wanted/needed could afford another mx5
I absolutely loved my NC1 until the day it died
I couldnt justify another NA or NB. I have a NA in storage; there were no decent MSMs in the area

my car was absolutely babied by an elderly couple for 45k and still smelled new when i bought it


hope you love the ND, OP. i'll be getting one once they start saturating the used market in a few years
>>
>>14213736
>same car

And that's where you're wrong. They are different, and those differences are what separate a *good* platform from being great.

Mazda fine tuning it to the latter
>>
>>14213736
Are you seriously defending a fucking Fiat? It's ugly and would be in the shop more days a year than a V12 jag.
>>
>>14213788
b-but mazda platform!

participate in the thread and tell us why you bought your car

Remove panel under the steering column. Should be the yellow & black relay with 4 connections. Diagnosing fueling problems?
>>
>>14213754
>yfw there will never be a used ND in your lifetime under 10k

I traded for my current car because I needed a highway driver and the wheel bearings on my previous car were so fucked it was causing me to burn through a set of tires every month. Traded down to a car half it's value, but those are the hits you have to take when you don't have a dime to your name.

>>14214006
Well meme'd friend.

Enjoy your na 2.0l making a whopping 155hp
>>
>>14214026
you forgot about the 2 bolt ons and tune that put it at 190 to wheels
>>
>>14214024
nice but its still going to be smoked by my type r while using 1 hand
>>
>>14214034
Yeah, how much power do you think the fiata would make with the same mods and a tune?
>>
>>14214034
Fiata gets 200 with just a flash
>>
>>14214038
Type R isn't in the same price range or category

It's WAY heavier
>>
>>14214075
>>14214074
>Still doesn't handle as well as the Miata
>Powerplant will be unreliable Fiat garbage
>Front end is way less aerodynamic

It will still be inferior. What part of Mazda is better at engineering performance from this car do you not understand? A few extra horses doesn't mean anything if the powerplant is shit (which it will be) in the first place
>>
>>14214103
Miata engines have always been terrible. And the Abarth engines don't have any issues. You're full of shit.
>>
>>14214149
>Miata engines have always been terrible
thats why you can buy a 3k bolt on turbo kit for the na6 and make 200whp reliably?
>>
>>14214149
>Miata engines have always been terrible.

pfffff- HAHAHAHAHAH!!! Good one anon.

>Abarth engines don't have any issues

>I had what I though turbo problems. I would not make boost about 1/4-1/2 throttle, which NEVER happened before. Now there is one cylinder knocking. I don't know if it is a spark plug or injector or what...GREAT. I am going to call the dealer tomorrow and have my car towed to the dealer hopefully monday or tuesday
>not make boost

>>14214149
>Miata engines have always been terrible
Just because you say things doesn't make said things true
>>
>>14213773
pretty much everything except the engine and transmission and some body panels is an ND miata through and through.

does the fiat badge magically change the suspension?
>>
>>14214216
>entirely different powerplant
>hurr durr it's still all the same like toyoboro

no, it's not

What:
>2005 f150
Why:
>learned to drive in the '94 and the '05 but the 94 had 2 dead cylinders (still passed Ca. smog despite this) and was driven into the ground before being sold at a farm auction, so I bought the '05 from my dad because I can load everything I own into it and drive across the us for work.

Not really impressed with the current generation of 150s, but i'm needing something with 4wd for getting to and from work (usfs), so i'm thinking for my first actual vehicle i'll go with a 04-08 f150 or a tundra since iirc I can get factory new with manual like the '94 was.
>>
>>14214164
Or you can just buy the Fiata, which already has a turbo stock.

>>14214215
I've owned a Miata before. I was very unimpressed.

>>14214268
>the entire suspension system

How does the steering feel? Must get a lot of feedback huh?

kek
>>
>>14214103
The car isn't even out yet, how do you know how it handles?

Look, I get you have a hard on for the ND, but it isn't that great of a car of the box. Even the club model is soft and requires an upgrade for the track.

The miata will always be a great platform, but you need to put money into first. That's true for all miatas.
>>
>>14213940
Yeah i just replaced the fuel pump thinking that was the problem(it wasnt). Now i gotta hope its the fuel pump relay. Pump was not sucking any gas in.
>>
>>14214306
How's the Korean Mustang, anon?

You should have got a pre-facelift, they look better.

They're pretty fun for a utility vehicle and the 4.0 litre V6 is pretty powerful. Decent on gas too surprisingly.
