Hi from Denmark

Hello guys and girls :-)

I (and the wife) are new to Mazda and I thought I'd just say hello

We have just ordered a CX-3 Optimum with the 120HP Skyactiv-G.
We're hopping for an automatic but that dedpends on the dealer and what he can get for us. We're happy with either auto or manual transmission.

We should get it in the first week of December.

And we are getting it as a van (backseats will be removed), mainly due to us not having children but only dogs, and it's very much cheaper here in Denmark, when it's bought as a van.

Hi Santa.

I used to love my trips to Billund and Copenhagen. I'm sure you will love the car when you get it, regardless of the transmission.

Hey you guys in the US, spare a thought for this guy, you cannot imagine what he will be paying for this car. The taxes in Denmark are even worse than the UK.

Currently CX5 SportNav 2.2 diesel automatic and AWD.
Formerly CX3 SportNav 1.5 diesel automatic and AWD.

Hi Santa

Congratulation on ordering your cx-3. I'm also sure your will enjoy it no matter what transmission you will get. I have a CX-3 Optimum 120PS, Soul Red (Manual transmission) my self and i'm very happy with the performance and economy. I'm actually pretty happy for the manual transmission, the gearshift is brilliant.

I have had it since June, done almost 8000 km now (commuting Kge-Copenhagen) and averaging around 18,5 km/l. In the heavy traffic the automatic transmission would naturally be preferred.

Thanks all :-)

We did like the manual, so no problems with that, if we can't get the auto.

osterga: Your input on spritmonitor.de was actually one of the reasons I starting looking at the CX-3, since You're actually reaching the stated km per liter (and more).

I'm not going to mod it too much, but I am looking into getting the doors, bonnet and boot soundproofed at some stage.
And perhaps getting the frontseats (seeing they are the only ones we will have in the car) reupholstered with light or dark brown leather, but that is a year or two in the future (at least).

Well, small change in colour, due to dealer f**k up (sounds worse than it is).
We're now getting one in jet black instead of meteor gray, which is ok for us.

ETA is in three weeks time.....can't wait :-)
