Traded in my 2014 V6 Mustang a few days ago for a 2016 Mazda 3 Hatch i Sport with preferred equipment and couldn't be happier!

Very nice - I would love to hear how you compare the mazda to the v-6 mustang. I recall when i had my RX-8, when i drove my mom's 90's era v6 mustang it felt like driving a tank, with parts loose, no less, in comparison. I imagine the '14 would be alot better though, Ford has come along way.

Boxcarracer42, glad but not surprised that you are a very happy camper. Welcome to M3R.

Jan. 25th ordered Mazda 3 GT hatch; Feb. 3rd allocation awarded; Feb. 8th official options/color confirmed; Feb. 27th assembly completed; April 2nd left Japan on transport ship; April 17th arrived at Port of Tacoma; April 26th arrived at dealer. HOORAY!

Below picture thanks and credit to Skagerstrom, for that is his beauty below, the inspiration for what our car will look like.

Haha, the 2014 was honestly an amazing car. It was hard to give up but it's something that needed to be done. I had simple mods to it, CAI, tune and exhaust and suspension which would allow it keep up with a 370 in the 1/4 but a live rear could only do so much in the corners. Quality was probably 3.5 out of 5 as far as how it was put together and interior quality.
