The impossible has happened... I got a car O_.
A bit over 50k miles on the odo. Very fun little car, though sorry to disappoint some of you but the car is an auto lol (I still can't drive a manual.....). And before anyone hates on my lack of manual driving skillz remember this: it is impossible to learn manual on the automatic vehicles we have been having for the past 11 years, not to mention I don't have any friends who would bother letting my practice on their cars... <_<
Oh yeah, a couple pics:

Pretty nice for a first car, how much it cost?

lolwut I don't live in SF (that mess is 20 miles away...)
As for price it was $12,300, which is about $800 less than the blue book value :)
Other than a few scratches in the paint it is in very good condition though.

Though, there is a problem... The Durango occupies the garage, while the Ram is always where it is in that pic. My bro usually parks next to the Ram, which means I will often have to park on the street <_<

Haha, nice car dude, I see a lot of those around here. It's a shame about your auto gearbox and driving skills though. :P

Hmmm... that is a prob... Call dibs on the Garage, regardless. Might work - cause my bro took my garage spot <_<

Besides, you gotto get the garage for your car to go hardcore... Slammed, deep dish rimz, mad camberz, rotary engine swap with rear whel drive conversion, and, most importantly, nawwwz

Start the project :P

Nice car, Venom. I always loved the Mazda3.

Are you considering any upgrades? Tints? Wheels? I've seen a Mazda3 with OZ Superleggras driving around here and it doesn't look that bad.

Maybe wheels sometime in the future. A few minor engine mods may be possible also down the road.

If you do a 2.3 MZR swap...

I will give you a cookie, and 100,000 internets. :P
