Thanks everyone. Here's an interior pic.<br>
<br><br>I've been having a blast with the car. It has more room inside than it looks, but there are some quirks about rotary engines that you have to be carefull with. The biggest thing is that ANY time you start it up you have to let it warm up to operating temp before you turn it off. If you don't it will flood the engine and you won't be able to get it started again, and it gets a ride to the shop. The engine red lines at 9000 RPM and it developes most of it's power up above 5500 RPM. It spins right up there quick in the first 4 gears, so you have to keep an eye on the tach when you romp on it.
The only drawback is that you have to give it more gas in 1st when starting off. It is kind of a gas hog right now, and the service manager at Mazda said it will take some time before it settles in and the gas milage improves. It's a little hard to remember to shift into 6th gear
but if you like to shift gears this car is a blast. It handles fantastic. The weight is balanced 50/50 between the front and rear tires, and like any proper sports car it is rear wheel drive. Mine is the basic 6 speed making 238 Hp. There are several options packages that are available. They add things like dynamic stability control xenon headlights, leather, sunroof etc. When you get the 6 speed it comes standard with the sport tuned suspension, limited slip differential, 18" wheels, and the bigger brakes. Oh and more horsepower.
Mazda has some very cool accents that you can add to the car and I'm already working on a wish list. <br><br>zoom zoom zzzzzzoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom<br><br>
