Well first of all there should be 4 options in the poll, and a picture would be a good addition.

4 options for the poll...

I would say cool. I got to drive one, and I was pleasantly suprised how quickly I could go through the gears. They really move well for a little car, and the suspension is great. For straight from the factory performance, its a great car. Not frozen, because I would take an STI over it.

It is a nice car and all... I would not mind driving it... but it is not a cool car in my opinion.
SeannyC
god damn it!

why do people keep putting up poles that don't match the cool wall format?!

If I was to vote No, would it go in uncool or mj uncool? If I was to vote yes would it go into cool or ice cold?
Renesis
Yes.. dunno
No.. uncool..

the hell no is for MJ uncool

I think they're cool. From what I hear they're very fun cars and they're decently priced. Also the styling looks pretty good too, especially the Mazdaspeed versions. I dig it!

MSP listed at about 19k.
STi is 31k.

Of course you'd take the STi over it. For the same price in an impreza you'd have a non-blown EJ25 lump.

Ice cold, it's an awesome car for not alot of money.

Ok, fine. I'd take a regular WRX or an SRT-4 over it, too.
Mr b00st
a WRX is 26k.
and SRT-4 is another 2 grand.

Ice cold...these things look so hot, especially in orange, and have fantastic Protegé handling!

And b00st, the SRT-4 is actually cheaper than the Mazdaspeed Protegé...not that it matters anymore, because they don't sell the MS prot anymore.
fallon
Cool, this engine in a protege 5 would be even cooler
