Thread: Finally!!!

  1. Default Finally!!!

    I don't know how much activity goes on here still but 13 years after I first drove and fell in love with a MPS 3 I have finally bought one. I bought an SP23 a few months before the first MPS was released and every time mine was in for a service Mazda would throw me the keys to an MPS 3. My circumstances changed before I was due for a new car so it never happened. Fast forward till a few months ago and I finally started looking again. The first one I drove had the full tune, Corksport exhaust, intake and filter, etc. It was a little rough and was louder than my old commodore V8s back in the day. I just wasn't feeling it. I thought I had grown out of my MPS days. I test drove a few more and was getting pissed off. They were either try hard race cars or as rough as guts. People really have hammered the life out of them. Well today I drove a 2006 BK Sports and fell in love again. It has done 175k but has all services at Mazda dealerships. Oil changes every 5k for the last 5 years and was driven 6k in the last year. Only mods are after market engine mounts, Corksport intake box and filter and tinted windows! It looks like showroom inside and out and drives like a dream. So damned excited!

    Hi, welcome and congrats! I imagine it would be getting harder to find relatively unmolested examples with relatively low Kms these days. Glad you found one that ticked the boxes for you. We're somewhat quieter here than the heady early days, but not intending to disappear anytime soon. There's a number of facebook groups that might prove fruitful for finding local meets. Sadly the friendly community that ozmps fostered isn't always reflected on facebook - there's a few loose units, shall we say - but if you're looking to connect with other owners that might be another place to find them.
