While I can empathise, I'm on the other side of the coin and hoping mine (when it finally gets here) holds it's value for a long time  :P Sorry :-[

Try pointing your dad at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zdPF1TT9Z0 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pt5UTFuQUys, maybe that'll help get him off the fence. Those are two of the best objective reviews that helped me commit to the deal :)  O0

Maybe we shouldn't be having this conversation here after it got moved into the 2 thread...

Ninja'd

I don't mind if they hold their values for a while, mines 4 in September and I see no reason I won't have it until it's 8. If the gen 3 follows the trend of previous 3s limited supply will keep values solid.

Great, we're on the same page O0 I've every intention of holding on to mine for quite a while, but it's still one of the questions asked & a part of the research done - checking it's value retention potential.

When researching value retention between makes it is important to make sure you are comparing like with like. Depreciation data are usually based on the list price when new but, at least in the past, dealers for makes such as Ford or Vauxhall would routinely offer massive discounts to retail customers. When initial discounts are taken into account those makes may well depreciate similarly or even less than the "limited supply" makes such as Mazda.

All good advice, and yeah don't worry not lost on me. Difference in baseline cost, percentage converted to hard "losses", factoring in servicing, parts and fuel costs. Initial discounts cf carwow etc & brinkmanship/guilt trips on the dealer took me close to the door but closing a deal I was happy with - while they still make a happy profit I don't doubt but I want them to be in business for a few years at least to service me so I think it's in everyone's interests to meet somewhere in the middle.  8)

Now the car just has to live up to his promises and your [ie. the forums & reviews, not just YOUR :o] reassurances. I just wish it would f...ing get here a bit quicker so I could go out and play  O0

Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere but had confirmation today from Mazda that there is a DAB unit available, my dealership quoting in excess of £260 fitted

Yes my iPhone paired nicely, and so did my nokia before that.
I love the voice command as well, never had it b/4

Your average salesman doesn't know anymore than the man on the street unless there is a launch imminent and they've actually been briefed. When I bought mine I was told to be careful as the bootlight only works on a switch and if I left it on I could flatten the battery..a pearl of wisdom only found on Honest John.

I'd take a guess at between 3 and 4 years from the launch of the launch of the original car, on the basis that's how long before the gen 1 and 2 were facelifted. If there was an MPS imminent they'd have arranged for it to be "caught" testing in my opinion. I suppose they might wait until the facelift for an MPS no point in launching it then having it devalued by a model change 6-12 months later.

Think about how long ago we heard about the new civic type R or RS...cars that have only arrived recently.
