Chris' Gen 3 Sport
« on: October 11, 2019, 07:28:32 pm »
It was time for the Gen 2 diesel to go :( I always wanted a Gen 3 but at the time the prices were alot more than I could afford so I settled for a Gen 2 2.2D Takuya. The car was faultess in the 18 months of ownership, despite other owners having problems with DPF,injector seals,timing chain stretch etc I must have had one of the good ones

With my limited daily mileage it was best to sell now before I caused any serious damage. With the car sold it was time to find a Gen 3 petrol, then this appeared for sale in Tamworth (a nice 360 mile round trip away)

2013 Sport (non Sat Nav model) in Soul Red
6spd Manual
2.0 Petrol
38k miles
2 Previous Owners
Full Mazda history

It has the usual Sport extras

Heated Leather Seats
Front and Rear Parking Sensors
Rear Reverse Camera
19" Alloys
LED DRLs
Xenon Headlights

Couldn't resist a night photoshoot, the colour really pops

















Last night we took a spontaneous road trip to collect some wheels, I can't help myself lol



The Advan AD08Rs have been sold, I dont think this 160hp family car needs all that extra grip haha

I spent the day with the other half taking a drive around local back roads looking for a nice scenic road to take some Autumn photos. Tried a different editing style to match the theme with a darker,warmer tone.
