    Do you think P2,150,000 is reasonable for a 263hp turbo,6 speed with traction control and limited slip dif station wagon?

    4 or 2 door? 4 wheel drive?

    How's the price compared to the Mitsu EVO & Subaru Impressa WRX base units?

    Gads... I was hoping it would be possible to get one at 1.7 or 1.8, but I suppose demand is high in the US, so the grey market price is understandably high.

    IMHO, worth it naman. The standard 235 hp WRX that you can get for 1.7 has less power and is slightly slower from 0 to 100 km/h. The Mazdaspeed also has a better interior, more space (hatchback kasi) and good looks... a very sophisticated electronic traction control system (road testers report none of the unsettling torque steer you get from other 250+++ hp front wheel drive cars) and a more supple ride make it a better GT (grand tourer... for long distance drives) than the Evo or STi.

    Plus, it's unique. That's got to be worth something.

    Kaya lang, will the local Mazda be able to maintain it? It may share the same basic engine architecture as the Mazda6, but other items, like the LSD, the injectors, brakes, etcetera, are bespoke.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Demand is really high in the US so you have to spend extra to get units. People who buy imported cars have other cars to use in case of breakdowns and the means($) to pay for parts if needed.

    I might be slanting towards OT here. But, a turbo family car is almost a contradiction in terms. Weight is the greatest enemy of a turbo (besides days with low atmospheric pressure *V8s can go at it anytime, anywhere*) and would have a telling effect on its acceleration unlike a V8 with has all its extra torque to compensate. That's why I rather see turbos in small 2+2 2-door sport coupes like the 1g Eclipse.

    The MazdaSpeed 3 would certainly look better with a 2+2 2-door version. Have the backseats too small except for munchkins but still have the trunk space.
