What's with ppl calling Mazda 3s M3s?



i thought it was just an isolated thing when a buddy said it last year....but i was on teh phone with one of my old buddies from work and he just bought a brand new car....when i asked what he said m3...i'm like WHAT!!...andi asked him if he got the 19s or 18s on it....and he's like 19s stock on a mazda? ...WTF?

i REALLY hope this nickname doesn't spread like wildfire and Mazda 3s get associated with the great Bavarian nameplate

My young cousin used it on me too. He said his mom drives a M3. I asked if it has SMG...and his response was the shifter switches instead of using the PRNDL... After a while, our conversation wasn't adding up, then it hit me....duhhhhh

what you should do is buy an m3 and tell them you got a m3. then they say they've got one too and you say that you just love cruising in 6th gear doing 230+ flying by mazda 3's.

I never heard of anyone calling a Mazda 3 a M3, so do they call the Mazda 6 a M6 as well

We get the Mazda 5 in Canada already- and they have already been in the news once for catching fire while driving

oh...and one more thing. I hate how manufacturers are calling all their cars by code now. Any self respecting car guy knows the Mazda 3 is a Protogay.

Haha, poor Mazda and the 5.

You guys hear how they had to recall the first 1200 or something that were brought to Canada? Turns out owners didn't know how to use the shifter buttons in the manual mode (or how to choose gears in general), and drove along the 401 in 2nd. The muffler got so hot the rear bumpers were catching fire.

Now they have the same bullshit logic most of the systems have, and shift even though you didn't request it. I hate dumbasses ruining cars for the rest of the world.
