I finally did it…traded in the Honda and got a 2008 Mazda 3i. They call the color “Sunlight Silver Metallic.” Got a black interior. I’m so relieved! This is one SWEET car!

2008 Mazda 3i

When I was handed the keys, there were 4 miles on the odometer. It’s sooooo comfy! Can hardly feel the road! That was a big gripe (one of many) with the Honda – The Mazda feels like flying above the road rather than being dragged about a foot below its surface, as with the Fit.

Got the Sirius satellite radio thingy too. I don’t know if I want to subscribe to that – it’s another $13/month. Maybe after I win the lottery I’ll get it on my 6-Series. Whatever. That was the only option…everything else was standard – this car was in the lot waiting when we stopped in to have a look-see. I got a great deal for the trade-in and a great finance rate. Topping it all off, the Sirius was a freebie!

May tint the windows later this year and get the plastic thingies that go over the windows…we’ll see. Maybe the gang at Unique can upgrade it.

I just wish I did it last year – would have saved me a lot of headaches.
