Yea I think you guys are right and I appreciate the input. The more and more reviews I read confirm the Mazda is much more put together and a much better car, especially for the track. The only real complaint was that Mazda didn't squeeze more power out of it with the turbo. Now if the damn stealership would only call me back...

On a no traffic day its only 30 mins. Going the speed limit around 50 to 1hr and 15mins. depending on where you are going.

I'll definitely have my car here. It'd be cool to cruise around and take some drives.

Yea tell me about it. I've now been to 4 stealerships and spoke with 5 different salesmen and only received 2 calls back and one of which was a car I wasn't really that interested in after driving.

On that note, I drove that Speed 6 today and all I have to say is
It's like my car on steroids. The refinment of a BMW with the raw power of an SRT and the AWD of an STi. That and it had ample leg room for me which can't be said about a lot of cars now a days (the BMW does as well.) I'm stopping in tomorrow morning to have them check out the bimmer and possibly talk some numbers. I'm swapping the stock steering wheel back on so perhaps I can meet up with you Sunday or Monday after I get off at 3pm Josh #2?
