With some work those things can be pretty damn quick, don't even bother with racing him until you find out what all he has done. Hell, if nothing else you have a nice way to meet your new neighbor. Just go over and ask him what all he has done to his car while saying that you've "always liked those, they look really nice."

The Mp3 is not fast stock, maybe 16 sec 1/4 mile. I used to own a Mazdaspeed
Protege, and stock it felt a bit quicker than my Si. But after a few mods, I was in the mid 13's. Oh yeh, these were bolt-ons by the way:thumb:

^^ the only mazda ive ever been in was a 07 mazda tribute, and it was a piece.....

it was a rental car but it was brand new so there was nothing wrong with it. i dont know maybe it was a base model but the interior was garbage. even the steering wheel was like 100% all one piece, like a solid plastic steering wheel.

has anyone ever actually raced one
I've never raced one, but I bumped into a guy that owned one and it turned out the guy I was hanging out with knew him. After a while we got around to talking about the car and he was pretty quick. Stock turbo, FMIC, boost controller, 3 " exhaust, etc.

It came with a factory kenwood mp3 player and sub. I think it was one of the first cars with mp3 capability. My friend had one and recently sold it.

Not fast at all...140hp at the crank i think but dam fast in the twisties. The car comes withTokico struts and stiff springs....Large sway bars and comes with sticky rubber. It really did handle like a go kart.

They were 2001-2002 models i believe then came the boost in 03 for the mazdspeed.

An mp3 or Mazdaspeed Protege? As I said before, my Mazdaspeed Protege was a bit faster than my Si (stock for stock). FI FTW
i want to say its just an mp3, i didnt see anything saying mazda speed on it. like the si and r18 what seperates the mazda speed and mp3 apart, (decals, spoiler, rims)
