Icon10 Gotta love that new car smell..........

Well here is my new DD. Contour was fun, but became a money pit. Decided to get something with a warranty. So here she is a 2010 Mazda3 Hatch. With the 2.5/6spd combo. This car out handles the contour 10 fold, but doesn't quite have the same performance, but I gained a good bit of MPG's. Its a well balanced car! I love it.

The two cars shortly before I left

The stock stereo is actually pretty good. Has good bass stock, but i'm going to add a sub to it. Already has tweeters so the high's are covered and it does have a aux input. It's in the center console


Btw just ordered my HID kit for the low beams.

Good deal, that's the only way to buy a new vehicle in my opinion. That is if you can afford it.

I've pretty much decided to just get a regular SuperCrew F-150 so that I can do the same, and keep the Ranger too.
