It's a very good car but I just wouldn't see it as a cool car. Uncool, sorry dentist man... wink.gif
i love the protege when modded and it looks very clean. gets a def. cool.
Ok, maybe this car's a little ricey but it's still drool

take out the bodykit and there you go.
How is it a cooler car than a Corolla? I could imagine my grandma driving one.
sorry, i find it uncool.

the protege 5 however...
Uncool, boring, gutless. Its a budget econo car for college students. The Mazdaspeed Protege on the otherhand would have gotten a cool.
I think it's cool. It may be a little budget car as mentioned above but it also has some amazing handling. The Mazdaspeed version is insanely cool too, and I also love the Protege5
It's cool, because when you're smart enough to buy a Protegé over a Civic or Corolla, it's like you're in some secret club.
Mr b00st
sorry, uncool. College chick's car but at least it's fun.

I haven't driven a protege but i've driven a 3s... and i have to imagine the protege is kinda like the 3s but slower, and i really liked the 3s.
