Our Brand New Car

While it may very well be our new car, R gets the use of it for work. It has a centre rear armrest, not seen in any of our cars since the Humber Super Snipe. I am old fashioned in that I believe new cars need to be run in, so I haven't floored it yet, but I can already tell Mazda 3 two litres is superior to older Hyundai two litres and superior again to Mazda 626 2 litres, superior to Humber Super Snipe three litres, but none superior 3.5 litre VF Valiant.

The colour is an iridescent Stormy Blue.

  1. Yes, we took it easy in our Mazda 2 when we first got it, for the first 1000km's at least. Still running like a dream, we are very pleased with it.
    Your blue is a nice blue, different to ours.
    RIP your old car as I see it in the post below.

  5. Very nice and shiny. I'll have to stick with my pushbike unfortunately.

  6. Centre rear arm-rest? I've not seen one of those for quite some time! My grandad had one in his Honda and my sister and I had so much fun pulling it down and putting it up again.

  7. They say you don't really have to Cazzie, but I think it is worth while.

    Thanks Jayne. Lesser penalty than normal if you run over a MIL.

    Thanks Ben.

    I will in a bit Rob. Pretty standard.

    Give the chain some oil for christmas Brian.

    Thanks Jen.

    Very useful for resting your arm on while holding a cocktail MD.

    Thanks Daisy. We are getting used to it, initially we weren't too sure.
