    Really? Where about are you located? My dealer said my GT will be here in about 7-9 days from now. Gave me my VIN and looked it up. I would figure it's the same batch being shipped as with your GS.... I'm stoked as well.

    Just got an update on my GT, it's in TO right now waiting to be put on a truck to be delivered to my dealer. Mazda's website has updated to include the 2015 as well. Can't wait.

    Yay! My GS arrived over the weekend and is now in my driveway, constantly beckoning me to drive it. Loving this car.

    Oh man, congrats. Super jealous right now lol. I want to do a few things to the car as soon as possible so hopefully I get it before this weekend because some shops might be closed for the long weekend.

    I know that's why if I can get it before this weekend I can get some things done. If not, I'd have to wait because next weekend is long weekend.

    What, if any, are the changes between 2014 and 2015 models?

    You can now buy a GT with a manual transmission. The downside? It's the same price as aut

    You can get a Convenience Package for GX which now actually shows the tachometer. Previously, even manual GX models did not have the tachometer.

    In the "Build & Price" for the MY2015 GT, I'm seeing a new feature for those who choose the automatic:

    "Drive selection switch with SPORT mode"

    Likely because the Manual does not have this feature. Full time sport mode. Downshift.

    Just curious, does the 2015 Mazda 3 GT (2.5L) blip the throttle when you do a manual downshift in the Automatic transmission? And in the Automatic, with the car in Drive (D), when you hit the paddle to downshift, will it downshift and resume in Drive mode or do you have to put the car in Manual (M) mode first using the shift lever?

    Lastly, do you think the GT models will stay Japan made or would they likely be moved to Mexico soon?

    I'm saving up and expecting to buy a new car in the next year or two.

    Not sure what you mean by blip... You certainly feel the resistance on the engine when you downshift. Not as greatly as a manual but it's there.

    You can use the paddles at anytime during driving. It will resume Drive mode after a period of inactivity.

    I have yet to hear plans of it moving to Mexico. I'll keep an eye on Vin numbers.

    I think by 'blip' he means rev-matching as in 'blipping' the throttle, as done with manual transmissions. With an automatic though it is not necessary since an automatic has a torque-converter....so I doubt such a feature exists.

    I will say for me it seems like any other automatic if you shift it manually, as in it works as it should and I'd expect it too. I'm loving the convenience of shift options on the auto. I love how the paddles are always "live" and then it swaps back to 'D' if you leave it alone. Also nice to have the shifter option of sliding it over and using the plus/minus. I really like the feel of the shifter on the auto, has a quality feel to it imo.

    Lol I do only have 2.5k on it though.

    Hey Jeff, I'm currently driving an 02 Protégé DX, and am looking to trade in soon for the 15 GS. What, typically, do you/would you offer as a max trade-in value for a pristine Protégé? I realize this is in need of more specifics, but I'm just asking for a ballpark figure so I can get a general idea of what I'd be looking at? Thanks.

    P.S Apologies if this sort of q has been addressed elsewhere, but I couldn't find it using search function.

    Without doing a full appraisal, I would only be guessing,

    I would strongly suggest you sell it privately, check autotrader for comparable vehicles and their asking price.
