Nice ride So I'm guessing your parking has no cover? If so make sure you give your car a full detail clay, wax and polish every 3 months to keep the car paint looking great.



No, it is an apartment complex so no cover. I've thought about buying a cover for it, but I thought that may scratch it if I put it on and off every day. I have soap that has wax and polish mixed in, but I also have individual wax every now and then. The sad thing is (you can see how I park at the very edge) I do that everywhere. I park as far away from others as I can but people still managed to ding my door 3 times. I don't know what else I could have done other than hide the car in a garage and never drive it. It's all in the same area so it looks like a triangle of tiny dings. You can't see it unless you know where it is and get really close. It's on the driver side rear door panel. I don't know if I should try to pop them out or not. I've heard online that you could damage the car much worse and if it is a tiny ding you are better off leaving it alone. Two of the dings have no paint damage while one on top while minor scratched all the way through the clear coat and base paint leaving the bare metal showing (again you can't tell unless you look closely) so I worry about trying to pop that one out may chip the paint around it. Have you had any experience with minor dings? I witnessed a guy dinging my car and he gave me $100. He was a good guy, but when it happened I only had my car for like a month it sucked really bad (he was responsible for two of them). I've considered taking up two spots, but then I would likely be towed where I work or someone might mess with my car just for me being stuck-up and taking two spots so I just park near curbs with only one car next to me when possible (and my tire almost touches the curb so I can't go much closer to the curb and dings still happen).

In my case no GF lol. I used to spend all my money on her but when we broke up I had all this extra ME money.

Here are two of my babies:
The first car I started to mod slowly is my Celica




The one I'm currently spending my time and money on is my Fairlady Z (350z)





Representing my favorite Rom Com, School Rumble!!!



I'd like to get a Datsun 240z as a project car to work on in my spare time but I'm also eyeing a 370z . I used to have a 98 Eclipse GSX back in the day but the transmissions on those where shit so I got rid of the car even though It's what started my love for cars, well that and because it was the green car from the original Fast and Furious movie .

is see.. 16" alloy wheels are standard for 2017 sport.. honestly.. i like small wheels 16" is fine by me.. since it will be cheaper to buy tires!!

it will be around $356 + tax/fees for 4 tires on my 2017 mazda 3 sport.. but it it was a 19in wheels.. it will be $610 something.. :/

also did you know that blind spot monitoring is standard on the 2017 corolla ?

I figured out why you got your car for your price. The 2017 model is cheaper than the 2016 model. I asked at the dealership I bought my car from. They told me I could get the 2017 model with everything my current car has for $19,200 OTD ($2,300 less) and trading in my car for $14,000 I would pay the difference of $5,200. Of course I don't want to change my current car since I own it with no payments, but you got me curious as to why you got so much less than mine. Still, you did good getting a hatchback for less than $19,200 they quoted me for the sedan.

I was considering the Toyota Corolla when shopping around when I first bought my car. It was either the Mazda Mazda 3 Sedan or Toyota Corolla, but the Toyota Corolla had a CVT (continuously variable transmission) I didn't like it on my test drive. Plus, the Toyota Corolla was only about $1,500 less. I would rather pay $1,500 more for a car on my number 1 spot.

i need the new car right away so i can't wait

but the best time to buy a car is at the end of the month.. better yet . .the end of December of the current year ! by then the new model is already out so the incentives will be higher and pressure to clear out last year model will give you more discounts

i'll get another car on December 2017.. 2017 Mazda 6 Touring mica white color.. the price i'm aiming for $19,000 out the door :)


if you want a 2017 Mazda 3 sport sedan white color right now ? .. it's around $16750.. out the the door i think they will do $17200 :)

agree to finance through Chase so the dealer will get $500 for signing you up.. but then you pay off the whole amount within 1-6 months to keep the interests amount at the minimum :)

I wish they have Mazda 6 hatchback.. Mazda 3 is kind of loud.. 70 decibels at 65+mph .. the bridgestone ecopia tires are not very good at absorbing the road either..

i wonder if they will allow me to switch out the tires during the buying process..

My father's "Hachiroku" in its glory days (1st pic) but now it's been sitting for 7 years to rust (2nd pic) because he lives abroad and my uncles are untrustworthy. I'm gonna work on it though, that should make it mine
