still overall one of the best handling Stock cars I've ever driven, the styling was leaving me cold on those but now after driving it I've completely warmed up to it; the interior, seats, etc. are all nicely done, Mazda does know how to build a driving machine

And I get to sample it on Sunday! Very excited...

Absolutely. The driving dynamics, the way the controls work together... the car is a joy.

Mein Auto: a BMW killer
unfortunately with the rain and all at the Pro Solo we never had a chance to mess with the rear shocks this weekend
