    Default Hello!! New From Gold Coast!

    Hi guys!

    I've recently purchased an '06 MPS in Cosmic Blue, and am enjoying it thoroughly! I think I found a good one - it's only done 18,000km, but has been serviced by Mazda every 6 months since new, regardless of the low kms. Looks absolutely brand new. Has no modifications, though it has a towbar (which I'm looking to sell if anyone is keen?). I'd love a BOV I think, to reduce some of the lag, but other than that, I'm happy with it as-is!

    My last car was an '05 Mini Cooper S, and while the MPS isn't QUITE as fun on the winding roads, I'm LOVING it none the less!

    I have had a LOOONG love affair with cars:




    My first car, the Escort, was built from the bottom up by my dad and I in to a 140hp@RW MONSTER.




    Next was the E30 323i BMW which I STILL regret selling (most AMAZING sounding exhaust you've EVER heard).



    Then the Supercharged Mini with glass roof. Got rid of the Mini, as it was starting to cost me money (BMW parts = BMW prices!!!) and we bought a house.




    The Mazda was a cheaper option with even more power - though I miss the fact that the Mini cornered so well that you didn't need to slow down around sharp bends. Lol.

    I'm Primary School Teacher on the Gold Coast, and returned from shopping the other day to find a card for your forum on my car window from Nirvandan, so I thought I would pop in!

    I've just seen that someone on the forum has a VERY similar screen name to mine (MISSMPS), so I may need to change mine if that's possible?! I couldn't find a way to do it! I apologise, MISSMPS - I was unaware until just now

    Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

    Sarah.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys!

    Posting those pictures hs actually just made me realise that I've only ever owned blue cars....

    Though, the Escort was a delightful BEIGE when I bought it...and (sorry if I offend?)...is cosmic blue REALLY blue?! Looks grey in most lights to me!!

    We all know GREY is the best colour, so that is a good thing!

    hello and welcome!!!!

    The cosmic blue looks grey, but any colour on the 3 looks good.

    Miss_MPS, One of our members has a Safe n' Sound Babyseat, he might need the use of a tow bar...

    Make sure you check out the cruise threads, there is a 3 Dam run on 2 August...! Will be a great day!

    Thanks Jmac- have already been in touch with armthehomeless regarding the change

    I followed an MPS home the other day on the freeway between Brisbane and Coomera (Dreamworld) - black with silver bonnet stripes...I tried to get the drivers attention, but no luck - I must not be pretty enough. Lol. Could that be anyone from here??

    Welcome to the forum.
    That would be "Spud". He works with me here in Bris and lives down the coast. He & I both have similar stripes and his is the Black. Mine is the AB.

    A few years of dirt, crud and some hail damage, hahaha....

    My Odo rolled over the 95,000kms mark the other day and the only difference I can feel is a little softness in the suspension. I'm surprised the car is still going strong after a long life at the hands of this mountain goat

    Ladyee

    There are heaps of Brissy/GC members on the forums.

    Usually doing something of a weekend...spit runs etc..

    So ...just ask and you will be pointed in the direction of non stop laughter from the Qld Crew.

    Happy Motoring

    Sarah and enjoy the fun and madness here, it's a fun place really

    My first car was a 2.0L Escort but in Bright Orange and it had the all orange velour interior, never dynoed it, but with 2 x 45mm webbers, cam work, headers 2.5" exhaust it went like a cut snake and left V8's with bewildered looks, kinda like my MPS Anyway sold it after a couple of years as it was a mongrel to tune and used more fuel than a V8!
    Cheers
    Chris
    R36 - Just like an MPS6 except with a growly V6

    Thanks for the name change....but you've only really changed the title as Lady Muck is me all over....I guess you like to get your own way all the time just like me

    Good to see another Female 3MPS owner (you must have good taste)
