The way I came about getting this car was very interesting. I wasn’t even thinking of buying one. When I got to the mazda dealer, I was looking at a used wrx sti. When I saw it, the car was leaking oil everywhere possible. As I was leaving the dealer, the salesman showed me the speed and I fell in love with it. Immediately started doing little mods. Started winning some races and next thing you know, everybody was knowing me by whitezilla. Its been a great run and I’m very grateful of all my fans and people that supported me and my car.

Giulio’s verdict: This was another car I thought about getting a while back. As I was browsing online checking out my possible next motor I often checked these Mazdaspeed3’s (Axela as they’re called here in Japan). For the age, mileage and power these seemed awesome value for money. Why didn’t I get one? Well, as Whitezilla3 said, they’re fwd which kind of put me off as I wanted to try a rwd….still occasionally look at these and keep wondering if I should try one though. THIS example from Whitezilla3 is a lovely example of one though and I like it! Well done on your build.
