    Default New MPS3 - Hi from Sydney!

    Hi everyone.

    Just got myself an MPS Luxury in Aluminium.

    I never liked the smiley face front from Day 1. Looked like something from the movie CARS.

    Coming from a 02 323 SP20, i was lookin at an wrx, civic type r and GTI.

    Initially, the Honda won me over due to its interior and looks but performance was a bit iffy especially down in lower gears and at the end of the day, value for money wasnít the best.

    WRX Ė never liked the new shape and the interior is too cheap and nasty.

    So yeh MPS here I come, I like the fact that this model comes with all the gadgets and offers the best bang for buck IMHO.

    I already know some of you guys from OMC, AGT, OZmazda so hopefully get to come to a cruise in the near future!

    Ive tried googling this but get different answers but how should i drive the mps in the first 1000km.

    some say baby it, let it experience different revs.

    some say drive it hard but of course not to redline it constantly.

    can anyone please help me out here???

    Welcome, Dont worry about the smiley face ,you will be smiling a much bigger grin when its in your garage. Drive the first 1000 as you want ,but dont consistently give it heaps,change the oil after the first 1000 ,the dealer wont . whats an extra few $$ for oil.

    Picked it up this morning.
    Already racked up 500km already!
    drove from Livo to Hunter Valley via Wollombi.
    Lots of nice roads to vary the revs.....

    after a few hours of driving. i still cant find the seat position which i like best!!
    Love the bi-xenon lights!they light up the road like a mofo!!

    One thing which i find weird is when im resting my arm on the center armrest, it just doesnt feel right as i find its sitting to high. Maybe its just me and that im used to my old car!

    But overall i love the car!!!!
