also a mazda 3 1.6 owner here...

cars i run with that not as quick as d 3:

1.6 audi a3
1.6 almera sg-l
1.6 lancer (skark mouth)

and seeing that the 2008 1.5 lancer weighs more than the 3 (about 200 lb/s) while making about the same amount of power as the 3 i think i know where that will go

the 1.5 corolla is about equal (while not burning as much gas) lol

the 1.6 civic is faster

about the only mod i did was install a k&n filter. but i only put that in 2 days ago. lol

was interested in putting in HID's but i never really follow it up

well looks are subjective at best so to each his own but i agree that i think the 3 is better looking that the civic...

as for the handling i know the mazda3's are arguably best in class. civic may not handle as well but some may argue its a better compromise of comfort/handling. put it this way i rather drive the civic over something like a corolla any day. lol .

i also agree, about the subjectiveness of looks and about the civic handling better than the corolla, but i absolutely love gunning around corners(slow in, speed out),and das where mazda beats all i think, love the 3 so far,,,cant just be two 3 owners in this place, mazda people, contribute na

I have the 1.6 RORO model with the rear disc brakes. are replacement parts difficult to source e.g. brake pads (front and rear), timing belts, filters?

the firm has parts seeing that the mazda 3 wagon has rear disc breakes but expensive, i dont think you might get much parts foreign used seeing that they now start to bring the 3 roro
