As our settling in Vancouver continues, we finally got wheels!

Here's my new to me 2017 Mazda3 Sport GS!

Only ~28k km, the safety features that make the insurance company happy and the CarPlay / Android Auto retrofit.

We had the choice between this one and a red one of the same vintage, but this one ended up being the better deal of the two so we got it.

Specs-wise, it's the 2.0l SkyActive engine with 155HP and a six-speed automatic. It's pretty smooth and quick, but it does seem a bit thirsty so far.

I can get a proof of ownership picture later if needed :)

From what I understand it’s a super high compression engine, and it’s supposed to give better fuel economy :)

1,000km update, the car now has ~29300km on it :)

I treated it to a nice oldie that I found in an old folder:

An OG Finalgear decal from a run of tshirts in 2009! I somehow managed not to lose it for all this time, then proceeded to apply it completely off-center with my dashcam’s rear view camera.

I also removed the hideous license place frames installed by the dealership when I bought the car.

No other mods for now, I really like the car as it stands and don’t really see what to change about it.

Welp, I thought it was stolen. Turns out we’ve been parking in someone else’s spot for the last 8 months because our landlord gave us the wrong spot number… now hopefully he’ll reimburse us for the tow and impound bill quickly enough…

It is, which is why it actually runs (for a bit) when you misfuel it with diesel. It's all fun and games until a piston melts. :p

I didn't, but I heard someone who did.
