So I was driving North on the I-5 from san diego, up around the Irvine area (big surpirse, right near the Mazda Corporate office) and I see this familiar blue car up ahead, and when I got closer, I see its all duct taped to diguise its more definitive features, but there was NO mistaking that this was a Mazda3! Its a nice little car, pretty sporty looking, which is nice. I was entirely amazed to actually see one on the road like that, it had the Michigan Manufacturer's plate and everything. I definitely think it will be a good addition to the scenery of traffic when its released. I would have taken a picture, but my girlfriends camera only had had special B/W film which shes needs for a class :( And I didn't have my camera. The guys driving it must have thought i was nuts cuz I sped past at about 85mph, then after seeing it, corrsed the freeway and came back around it going really slow.

Was it a sedan or hatch/wagon?

About a month ago I heard about a white (disguised) Mazda3 hatch/wagon running the Mazda USA headquarters area.

It was a 4-door, but had the hatch, so i ssume its the hatch then right? I have a pic of the car that is looks like somewhere, lemme find it...

Edit:
I found the pics of what I saw... (except it was Lapis Blue, had a sport grille like the 6, and of course did not have blacked out head/tail lights, not that i could really tell because of all the duct tape)

I found that if the remote links don't work, If you cut and paste the link from 'properties' and then go back to this page, the pics load.

Funny huh?

Mazda_Gremlyn, man you saw the sedan and didn't take pics, I'm disappointed (joke). But yeah, the sedan is the secretive one because we really don't know the dimensions/profile of it - we know the profile the hatch/wagon because it's the MX Sportif.

Oh well, exactly 4 more months to go (Frankfurt autoshow).
