      The powertrain schematic is very cool. I'm surprised they aren't throwing another two motors in the front for AWD torque vectoring as well as increased regen capabilities.

      What are some things to look for in a purchase of one of these?

      I've just rediscovered my interest in them, and then looking at used prices has pushed me even closer!

      I have nothing to contribute to this thread other than I am going to look at a Mazda3 tonight and may end up leasing a 2.0 manual sedan. We'll see.

      Thanks all. Few more questions:


      Why would it only misfire once warm? Why only below 3000rpm? What sensors are typically used in closed-loop operation?

      who understands modern car ECUs?

      I bought a rusty Protege5. Good car, fun to drive, $1000.


      Right now the CEL is on with P0300 codes.. aka random misfires. I replaced the coil packs and gapped the plugs to factory spec.

      You guys forget the costs of developing an ICE powertrain in your quotes about 'regular sedans'. They are amortized across many models, yes, but that **** is expensive.

      My current daily has a huge hole in the front bumper. It liberates me from worrying about parallel parking near idiots.

      Buy one with a blown motor and swap in a Hartley V8.

      Honestly if there's a rusty example, save it from an oxidized death. Who cares about originality.
