That car in the different category (and price range). Before you
salivate check
the prices for 18" max performance summer rubber.
And beware of the torque steer

I already have. From what I've been told from current Honda Fit owners, the dealers have been
charging $2,000 OVER MSRP, plus there's other things they had to buy that are normally included with
most cars, so YOU'RE the one who should check the prices. The dealers are ripping off the Fit
customers bigtime.

I'm sure they do. But even if prices would not go down in a few month
they would in a year or two.
Mini was selling like hot cakes when it just came out now it can be had
for 18k (standard transmission) and they might finally sell for 17.5k
they were originally suggested to be sold for
while having none of the problems of the first model year. Mazdaspeed 3
would most likely
cost waaaay more than fit cost these days. It;s compete with WRX and
SRT-4
and would therefore be around $22-23k. And it's every bit as heavy as
the two cars
it;s competing with. The prices for Civic Si would go down by then and
I hope I could get one for under $21k. Too bad the wife says the sedan
is ass-ugly. I love it from evey angle!!!
Taillights, schmaillights.

Let's see, they have exactly zero in common except the idea that they're
both front wheel drive, 5 door Japanese cars.

Why Mazdaspeed3 instead of WRX?

i tested one of the early wrx's, and it didn't impress me. it's quick
enough, but doesn't corner like a honda. on balance, i think that
matters more.

They've come on a lot in 20+ years. Of course, i've neve seen a
regular saloon described as better handling than a race-oriented car.

My son and I test drove a WRX a few months ago when we were shopping for a
new car for him for graduation.

Fast? Oh yeah.

But it was put together like the cheapo civic DX and even shutting the doors
sounded tinny. The inside was nothing to write home about. I guess if you
want raw power, it's for you. Personally I like a balance of both.

He ended up getting an EX-V6 4 door Accord 6-Spd.
