    Smile New member, MPS hopeful

    Hi everyone! I've kinda just been roaming these forums for the past few days and I started feeling really creepy. And so thats what brings me here to post a small intro and what not.

    No, I don't drive an MPS- or in fact- a fast car. I'm still in uni (I go to UWA in WA) and so funds are being saved for a new car. I'm hoping to buy a hot hatch mid next year, and the Mazda3 MPS is on the top of that list at the mo. Thus the ninja-ing around for information, will hopefully test drive one very soon!

    I do drive a Mazda at the moment, but- please don't laugh- its a '98 323 Astina! Bone stock, red hatch- I do love it. Anyway, I figure upgrading to a 3 MPS would sort-of be a poetic, evolutionary step up.

    Anyway, its nice to virtually meet you all! I haven't participated in a forum in god-knows how long so this should be fun =).

    We do have rules in this forum and we must obey the road rules so I'd say you will have no issues keeping up my friend.

    @ BB

    thesilverdragon, good to see another WA member and good intro. Don't worry about your Astina on cruises, we get all sorts, have a look here

    http://www.ozmpsclub.com/forum/compl...ober-11th.html

    Not sure when the next one, most of us have a pretty busy couple of months, but keep a look out, it would be good to catch up.

    Good hunting next year for your MPS
    Cheers

    Hello there,

    I WOULD NOT suggest test driving one... then you wont be able to get it out of your head until you get one haha!

    Enjoy your stay, plenty of things happening here at the moment.. I acutually used to have a 95 323, the 2.0 V6 model..

    Cheers
    Justin

    Welcome....it could be much worse - my first car was a 1979 Mazda Station Wagon - MISSION BROWN - the thing would not die!!! I agree with Jmac don't test drive until you are ready to buy - otherwise you are just torturing yourself!

    Truth be told, I'm having trouble getting one out of my head now! And I haven't even driven one yet.

    Yup another West Coaster to the mix. See you guys on a cruise sometime!

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

    Hey Dude, Welcome Aboard!
    As all the othe Sandgropers have already said, it's good to see the WA members grwoing in number!
    Make sure you come along to the next cruise, you got a Mazda so that's enough! Like you said, the MPS is the evolution of the Astina - we had a 90 model and loved it.

    I do agree with Jmac tho, a test-drive is like signing on the dotted line...I had never driven a trubo-charged car before the MPS, and I was hooked on the first squashing of the go-pedal!!!
