My first car was a rusted out bug I bought for $50. It lasted about 6 months.

Sorry to stray off topic, but I am hoping you get a laugh out of this Plaz..

Ended up with a base price $4K under MSRP, but after all the nonsense (e.g. "sorry, the windows are already etched") ended up getting out of there about $500 under MSRP, but with lifetime free oil changes.

Good enough.

Car's great, love the ass on the Mazda3 5-door. SO much sexier than the sedan. Not as underpowered as I remembered it, not sure if that's good or bad.
