Story:
No special story lies behind this one. I wanted a more luxury and modern and also a more practical replacement for my old daily EJ9 Honda. So i saved some Money, test-drove cars, did some research and finally made the decision for this Beauty. So i ordered this car brand new from the local Mazda dealer. The plan is to drive it as long as possible so it’s worth the money spent.
It’s a brilliant bang-for-the-buck car with everything you need and a lot of loading capacity in the back. So far it has brought me and my wife to our wedding, tooken us twice from our homebase to sweden and back and also is my daily cummutor and workhorse.
I won’t probably make any hardcore modifications on this one, as i learnt my lesson from the last modified daily ride and the problems which come along.
But then again i can’t leave it completely stock, so some minor customization will for sure happen whenever my wallet allows me to 🙂
