I think the whole car has been improved aesthetically, except that front bonnet scoop, I cant get over how repulsed I am by it!

Samp4856,  You say it drives better. In what ways. I know it's early days, but any info would be really helpful.

That looks awsome. In WHITE though, don't think ORANGE would be a good colour ;D

well now the engin runs better as the intercooler is right under the air scoop, "better air florw", the lsd works alot better, and the dsc is far less intrusive, that couppled with the better exhaust systym " better air flow again :)" pluss the lower wait and less drag when compared with the old car, means its alot better, out one on the roaling road standard was pushing 285hp! compared to the old ones  268! all due to the fact that the car has better air flow, also on a few tests we did new vs old, the new one is faster even with a tight engine :)!

also i wont upload pics of the interiour, because u will all vomit :)!

I dont believe the back box/tail pipes improves flow.

kerb wait of the car has dropped by 3% over all!, and also its not just a back box, its a whole new exhaust systym twin pipe, double the air flow! basically

also ben mps dont belive evry thing u read haha! well except fot this? LOL ! the new car is faster from 0-60! and faster on a quater mile! we are a specialest mps dealer wich means TRACK DAYS ;)! the old one is still a fantastic car though, we have 4 comming in part exchange against new ones, 2 white and 1 red and 1 black 3 with areo packs and one white with out

Werent the alloys supposed to be titanium metallic in colour??

Naa as samp said, anything i've read or come across has defenately stated that they would just be in the silver colour. That said i'm a big fan of the titanium/gunmetal alloys on the RX-R3's, however, i do think the silver is better suited to the new MPS as a whole.

also i wont upload pics of the interiour, because u will all vomit :)!

Despite not seeing it in the flesh yet, have to say thats without doubt one of my major criticisms of the car, that orange/red colour in the interior really spoils what is a great looking car from the exterior. Perhaps seeing it in the flesh i'd change my mind and it wouldn't look so bad, but judging from Samp's comment above, i'm guessing i'm probably correct in my early impressions of the interior...  :(

i like it and i saw a new mazda 3 in aluminium at the mazda garage tonight while the mrs was looking at a mazda 3.i think the new 3mps will be stunning in aluminium colour and even better in ebony mica!!!.still think mazda have let the new mps down on the wheels,they're absolute ****** looking imo and do nothing for the car.it was meant to have a revised suspension set up so should handle better than the old one,however that twin exit exhaust system-cant see how it improve flow???guarnteed if you swap it back to a ingle exit it'll reep the benefits.in my opinion the only cars that benefit from twin exits are those with "v" style engines.wouldn't say no to a nice new one ;)

In white it will be alright, scoop on the bonnet looks ok not sure about the wheels really.

MK1 Mazda 3 MPS is so much nicer, but will have to wait and see it in the flesh to decide, how much is this car new OTR????

If the back box has the two tail pipes sticking out of it i believe that is a bad design cos you'll have turbulent air flow in the back box thus not aiding power.Anybody that goes for the new one is a fool/vain cos you can buy the mk1 new or next to new and with the money you have left over you can mod it to perform better  ;D

So good pics of a white one here, albeit it's the Mazdaspeed version rather than the MPS, albeit almost identical --> http://www.torontomazda3.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=35474

Theres also some good interior pics for those who you are yet to see the interior...

The first time i've seen one in white, and i'm impressed  :)
