The CX3 Definitely Gets Noticed

Last weekend the misses and I decided to go to McDonald's for a quick bite. We sat down near a large window in full view of my Titanium Flash CX3 which was parked on the far edge of the lot. As I ate my Big Mac, a car drove past mine, stopped for a second, reversed, and parked next to it.

Then this guy eating an apple got out and started walking around my car multiple times. At first I was a little concerned but I could tell he was just into the car, especially the wheels (the stock wheels and the Titanium Flash really do go well together).

Eventually a woman left the restaurant and greeted him. I thought they would just leave but no. He had to show her my car first!

We got a pretty good chuckle out of watching that unfold so I thought I would share with you all.

I had somebody do a double take a few days ago while they were walking across a pedestrian crossing .... they stopped half way across, it was funny but I really needed them to keep on walking!

I have several times received nice comments about my Mazda's while refueling at the gas stations. It has happened both when I had a Soul Red Mazda 6 Estate and also with the Cx-3 I have now.

It is mostly comments like, "That is a really nice color" or " What a beautiful car"

Yes, I get more comments about the colour than I do about the car but your photo demonstrates that perfectly.

I get quite a few looks too but I think its more of the "what the hell kinda car IS that" sort of a look...since I've blacked out the M in the front and debadged most of the rear....the most people can figure out so far is that its a Mazda. LOL

Haha I wondered the same thing. I hope for his sake he does get one. I think he might be the one person on earth who would be happier with it than I am!

Yes the soul red gets a lot of attention. I drove one when I was test driving the CX3 and people were staring at it and while I wanted one i opted for the Deep Crystal Blue as I was worried about someone getting jealous and scratching my car or staring it too much and crashing into it. However I think any CX3 still turns heads but not as much as the soul red especially in the premium models with 18 inch alloy wheels. No wonder Mazda is charging buyers extra for this color.
