It was time! Had to replace my first car.....needed many repairs which at this point in my life I dont have the tools/location or time to do. Thankfully my brother is a whiz with cars so I sold it to him and he now has 2 SVT's. Focus and Contour, which works out good because he dearly misses his Cobra!
Soooooo....as for my replacement!!! I wanted manual and all wheel drive..options are few and I dont fit in the WRX. I picked up a 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 with 17k miles on it!!! Its the sport, not GT but man this car is great and I fit like a champ (6' 4"). Still loved the lines of the SVT but these are great also. Thanks to all for numerous questions answered and helping out when I had car troubles! I will lurk but most likely leave the posting to my brother!!
