The only thing I miss is the handling of the Speed3. I am working on the 5.0 to fix that but I have been debating trading it in when the new IRS Mustang shows up. I miss my IRS.
Haha, that's pretty funny. Actually, I now own a 2012 Mazdaspeed3
. 4 months after placing the order, my Stang still had not shown up. I tried calling both Ford and my dealer and got escalated to a regional zone manager. I kept calling, and the person I was trying to talk to was always "out for lunch" or on vacation. At that point I had multiple people told me they "had never had this happen before". Long story short, I got tired of waiting and being blown off and cancelled the Stang and got a speed3.
Now, that being said, I really do want/plan on picking up a 5.0 in the next few years. I'm actually glad it turned out this way because it gives me a chance to kind of grow into performance cars. Plus, I have put some bolt ons on the car and am getting tuned, so I have actually learned about working on cars which was something I wanted to do from the start. I also put a new RSB in and love whipping the car around corners.
Were you on MSF at all?
