Since this isn't a thread about Neons, it's been moved to the Off-Topic forums.

I decided to lease this car but with the Mazda incentives they can be had between $25,000-$28,000 depending on options off course.

How is the performance of the Speed's turbo 4 versus the 3.0L V6 of the 's' models?

My buddy has a 04 Mazda 6 s and that thing has some good get up and go. I'm just curious, as I've never driven the Speed version, nor have heard of anyone saying "it's freakin fast yo!"

i test drove one at the dealer..has some lag on the turbo,but once it spools it goes..it kinda quiet tho..can barely hear the exhaust and motor..does have a really stiff suspension..over bumps its comfortable and when u push it to turns it gets the job done the way u want it..brakin is also good..little better than the stock srt4 system..overall its a good family car..but still wouldnt trade my srt4 for it

I’m still breaking it in so have not pushed it to hard. Yes the car is very quite. As for turbo lag it’s very minimum. No matter what gear you are in and tap the gas and it takes off like a rocket. I really wanted something bigger and more comfortable and had to have a manual. A comparably equipped BMW was close to 10k more and more to insure.

Having a SRT-4 Swapped second generation R/T already I am very familiar with the SRT-4. My car has a number of upgrades so I don’t know how a stock SRT-4 feels but I doubt it’s much quicker. The Mazda is all wheel drive and has a close ratio six speed so you better launch the SRT-4 perfect to take one out at the line. I’m sure from a roll the SRT-4 is faster.

As for handling can’t complain at all. It a little heavy and can’t be thrown around as easy as my first generation but the all wheel drive does a great job accelerating out of a corner. Mazda Speed always did a great job with suspension tuning and finally is putting out cars with power to match it.

True! curb weight on the 3 is about 3150.

feel and quality wise i'm leaning more towards mazda :oops:

a new car for me is a ways out though.... I may just have to hold out for one of these :D
