Hello everyone! Glad to be apart of this community, I once owned a 2003 corolla S which I loved driving around. Real gas saver hahaha. I owned a 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX wagon which I owned from 2014 up until 2020 when cylinders 1 and 3 gave out on me and during lockdown times, I had to get rid of her which I miss to this day. Currently, I own a 2020 Hyundai Elantra SE which is great on commuting and saving gas, took it to the twistys for some fun and it handles rather well lol. For fun, I own a 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 which I love putting my foot down onto get a bit of boosted power, future plans to make it pure track car. So funny story was that when I purchased the Elantra, I was actually looking at a Veloster N originally, after test driving it I was pretty convinced at that time to make the move but something told me I shouldn't buy one just yet. On my way out the door I decided to get just a commuter for now and just be patient on whats releasing down the road. Eventually, I fell in love with the GR Yaris after watching countless videos of it and reviews but sadden that it wouldn't come to U.S. shores. That's when I stumbled on the website of Toyota and saw the mention of a hot hatch making its way to the states. Shorty after, I heard that the name GR Corolla has been trademarked but Toyota and the rest is history. Being a fan of Corolla's and hatchbacks got me convinced that the GR Corolla is what I been waiting for. The wait continues.

Hi @Jaytokyo welcome to the forum! How long have you had the Mazdaspeed 3 for? Those cars are a bit under appreciated to me for how fun they are. Would the GR Corolla be replacing it or the Elantra? Do you have any photos of either car?

I find the MS3 is a rare and forgotten car, Mazda was really on a whole different level when they made those. As for the Elantra, it will be replaced by the GR.
