i currently have a heavily modified vw gti turbo and love the thing but ever since driving my '97 supercharged grand prix i vowed to never own another naturally aspired vehicle. my vw is probably gonna have to be smogged this coming december and will not pass. im now looking at a mazda 3 turbo that puts down 260 horspower and 280 foot pounds of torque and am gonna test drive it in the next few days. just wondering if anyone else here is into these pocket rockets and what other alternatives do i have in the low 20,000 range. for 22k the mazda seems to be the best of the breed.
