Didn't even push it once. Turned out to be a lemon... filing a lawsuit against the Mazda dealer I bought it from.

Good luck with that.

So uh... let's just say giving the VIN for the G35 Coupe to my insurance company... fucked me over. Luckily the car belongs to a close friend, I got the cheque for the car back before he actually deposited it.

Another 2-door, although MUCH slower, yet MUCH better handling, manual transmission hatchback coming up.... taking delivery Friday.

This from Google:

The engine was ready to blow. Bad rod knock.

I'm so done with used car purchases... this one better last me until I'm done with law school. Jeez. I'll upload better pics later... these are the only ones I put on my Facebook that don't have the plates in them.






Just installed a Kenwood eXcelon single-din deck... JL subs, great-sounding speakers in the fronts. Pretty much carried the system over from the Mazda3 except for the deck.

Holy shit... electric blue too!? Apparently this color is rare as shit.



My bad. Mini Oakville, where the car came from, specifically said they're bi-xenon, but obviously, salesmen know everything ...

his is n/a
mine is supercharged

turbo's came on the '07+


and yeah, i haven't seen many other EB mini's, ESPECIALLY with a matching roof. there are i think 2 other's around okc that i've seen, one with a black and one with a white roof.


edit:/ also, i don't think you have the H/K stereo.
atleast the the pictures make it look like you don.t
the door speakers should look like this:

It did have the HK, but it's been taken out. I'm pretty sure that the door speakers in HK cars only looked like that 2002-2004. Bunch of things were changed for '05+. I may be only talking out of my ass because Canada does things differently though...

It now has a Kenwood eXcelon stereo, JL Audio subwoofers, and the entire car has been wired and has a competition audio system. Car will be going in for tint very shortly.

edit: Just took more pictures for you bro...
