What are the odds though, seeing another Haze?

Pretty low. I have seen another one in my area, actually, near where I grew up. Same year, same options except for the chrome mirrors and fog lights.

I wonder if it has a reduction pulley and 22mm rear swaybar though.

It might make 240K by end of December or mid January. Depends if I find another interesting road to drive it on.

I was surprised she chose a MINI, but she liked driving mine and the MINI dealer worked with us to bring the price down to her budget.

Or she would be driving a Mazda 3 or something boring.

My neighborhood is crawling with Mazda 3s. The one across the street has 3 of them.

Interesting, they're not quite rare here - but don't see too many overall. Definitely not like what you're encountering.

Mazda 3 sometimes outsells Honda Civics and Toyota Corollas in Canada.

A few of my friends have recently bought new Mazda CX-3s. (SUV craze). I would consider that a less expensive option to the MINI Countryman.

I am starting to look for a replacement for my family car, a BMW 5 series and at 1/3 the price, a loaded to the hilt Mazda 6 is a very attractive alternative.

I do like the Mazda 6 a lot.

But I wanted a manual and for that - the 3 made a better argument on features.

Both drive nicely, offering less than pedestrian performance in both quickness and handling.

Just wish the turbo motors would surface again with more of the Zoom Zoom...
