My Ride: is Stage 2 AWD!


Alright guys so I drove a 2004 Sentra SE-R Spec-V today, I am still waiting to hear back on the MazdaSpeed. I was impressed with the SE-R, nice and peppy, clean, a very nice close ratio 6-speed. Interior could use some work in comparison to the Mazda's. Both are at the right price for me. The SE-R looks a little more "grown up" as the Mazda still has that kinda "boy racer" look, which I still like as I am one at heart and also has much more power potential with the turbo. I'm still thinking of driving an Altima SE-R and MazdaSpeed 6 as those are the big brothers and are around the price I want to be.

Anyway, not sure about the SES, damn car, but as of now it's still idling smoothly. Josh #2 or 3, lol, they're actually switching me to day shift so after I swap the stock wheel, maybe I could meet up with you again (at a more decent hour this time) and have you try and reset it again as well as check my codes.

Lmao, thanks for the support guys, unfortunately that's the point I'm at in my life. I would love to just upgrade to an M but I'm not there and won't be a while. Hell I'm an American muscle guy at heart as that's what I was raised on so by that time I'd really rather have a 69 Camaro RS/SS or a newer SS. Hell, by then I imagine I might even be able to afford one of my real dream cars like a Viper or older Ferrari or NSX, something along those lines. Either way, my priorities have shifted and are still shifting a lot in life. I need to get a job and start my career, the wife wants to go back to school to finish her bachelor's and we both want a house to start raising our family in in the next couple of years. I love cars too much to go down to an Accord or Camery so I'm finding something as practical and cheap that has some sort of performance backing and is still enjoyable to look at and fun to drive.

Oh and for the record, the MazdaSpeed is a 2.0L and the Spec-V has the stock Brembo 4 pots up front

Also, if you want to get to Alton, just tell him his mom's hot

EDIT:

Oh and to give credit where credit is due, I love BMW and they're excellent cars but Nissan made the GT-R which is one of the most legendary and extraordinary super-cars ever, on and off the track. And the same can be said for Mazda with their RX-7, an incredible performer as well.

i don't know about that ryan...

i'm pretty sure the mazda speed 3 is a 2.3T not a 2.0T... regardless the car is ridiculously fast for being that small... also for what it's worth, with modifications, the mazda speed 3 and the mazda speed protege will both be classed in DSP along with my b1tchy black car... beware

Mr. JAzzy, this is the MazdaSpeed Protege, not to be confused with the 3 or the tres as some may say.

however, why would you consider the speed 6 without considering the speed 3 first?

For one, I don't like hatchbacks to begin with and that one is just ugly to me and for two, there arn't any for sale in my price range and there is a 6 that is. I'm a sedan guy man and the 6 just looks so much better and so much more proportionally correct. Plus, it pounds the pavement and puts down better numbers then the 3 without the ridiculous looks.
