    Default was once a rexy driver - now onto the 3MPS

    Hi all,

    I went through the whole "a car with that much power should be awd - it can't be any good".

    Well I must have been wrong, coz I just bought a black 06 maz3 MPS yesterday. Worst part is I have to wait for 2 weeks before I can pick it up.

    Who says torque steer can't be fun?

    See you guys around the forums. Thanks for having me

    Murch

    Didnt think i would hear a rexy guy say he liked a MPS....after being in AWD.

    I think the 3MPS is a great car for what it is... cost, power and performance.

    Hope you enjoy it mate...and dont worry about TS...unless you have bingo arms.

    Happy Motoring

    ah well, another convert.. I guess I'm in the situation now where I've been there, gone back (MY01 Sti -> MX-5 ->Mini Cooper S Schnitzer -> MPS3 -> MY09 Sti) ... I'll be sitting in my very own spankin new Sti Spec R on the 27th June 2009. I am sadly saying good buy to the MPS, but not the MPS club

    Murch you will find out shortly that this is probably one of the best car clubs going round. No snobery here (except for Nirvandian ) and we're all just members of a drinking club with a driving problem.

    I'll be picking up the new baby next Sunday 24/5. I'm looking forward to getting back into a Mazda quality interior!

    It's great to be part of such a friendly forum.

    Hi all,
    ok so I've had the mps now since Sunday. I was a bit worried that I may still prefer driving my 2000 wrx - due to the awd handling and ability to put power down etc etc.

    I realise now I have nothing to worry about. This lil mps is just NUTS!! Sure it's a fine art getting it off the line, but once it's moving this thing would destroy my wrx. The rolling acceleration is nothing short of thrilling.

    I'm yet to see how I go in the wet! Will definately have to treat it with respect - as the rexy had no troubles in a wet environment.

    The other massive advantage of the mps over the wrx is the interior. Sure the wrx is an older model, but the new ones are arguably worse. Good old Mazda quality. And the BOSE is much welcomed over the dodgy system I was used to.

    Go the mps - you good thing!

    So where are the majority of people in this club located?

    Murch
