Re: and let me introduce you to your kissing cousin..... (Oldman)

this is annoying.. what's the point of this from ford ?<br>They keep putting out more performance enhanced models of the Focus and Mazda 3 yet they don't do anything to the S40 !?? while the volvo S40 should be at the top of this

The C30 is their late answer....I hope (please put at least 250 hp/250 Tq in the C30 with an LSD standard).<p>You can follow the MPS3 news (and U.S. release) of this great new car over here...... <A HREF="http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?board=10.0" TARGET="_blank">http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?board=10.0</A>

I agree if Mazda can use LSD and traction control for close to 270 din HP then I'm sure volvo can too.

Re: and let me introduce you to your kissing cousin..... (Oldman)

I drove the Mazda 3, 2.3 L normal (not mazdaspeed) when I was looking to replace the 1994 Golf. It was the only car that rivalled S40/V50 for steering feel. Mazda seems to have its act together on handling and steering in FWD cars. I seriously thought about waiting for the Mazdaspeed 3, but then the V50 was bigger (necessary for 88 key digital piano). V50 also included Volvo safety, Volvo seats, and best in class radio. Still, the V50 is much more expensive for now as much fun potential.<p>I wonder if the Mazdaspeed 3 will rival the much more expensive (more exotic???) Lancer Evolution. Mazdaspeed 6 sedan is also available.<p>I have seen internet postings about the V50 SV (some kind of experiment in 2004), which was like > 300 maybe 400 HP with 18 inch wheels, sports suspension, blah blah blah. <p>

<br>The C30 will have the 2.4i standard engine, and T5 in optional in Canada. Not sure about everywhere else....
