Default Reccomendations on my Speed 3

Hey guys! I created this account awhile back but never got into it due to moving away from my car. I own a 2013 Mazdaspeed 3 in amazing condition. People always asking if it is new because that new car smell. Also it currently sits with 13,000 miles.

The decision I'm between is if it would be worth it to bring my car to school, sell it, or let it keep sitting. I want to bring my car out to school 600 miles away but I now live in an apartment complex and do not trust the constant flow of cars there or at school. On top of that, if I brought it out here I would be driving it 300 miles 3 or 4 times a week to go snowboarding and that would put a big wear on her with constant snowboards and skis around college students, including myself. I believe it is worth more than any of the offers I have gotten due to the condition and miles. She definitely needs to be appreciated and driven more and I just am not sure if I can keep up with it. I will try to get pictures up but if you guys have any recommendations on what I should do with my decision that would be great. Thank you!

It's has to be your own decision dude, you got to see what makes more sense to you. If you like the car keep it until you finish your school. How much were the offers you got, if you don't mind sharing it with us.

Yeah it blue books and offer up is roughly about 14 usually but the most a buyer has offered was 16 if I brought it there way. I would love to keep the car for after school but for the time being i hate not being able to appreciate the car. it just seems selfish holding off.

don't know how long is your school but the problem is that the car value after it, will drop significantly in few years. If you keep it, you need to keep it at least 5-10 years after shcool or you would better sell it now from a monetary point of view.
Mazda just need to issue a new turbo compact of the same size for the price to drop even more.
The dizi engine get worst and worst review each year because there is more and more kids that can get abused speed for cheap and blow up the engine after a short while doing stupid things with it. They blame the mechanic so it doesn't help much either for the resale value.

In the other hand, a 2013 low mile would be a jewel when you will be out of school. You won't find another one easily and all new stuff would probably be just sold with automashit transmission like the new mz6 Turbo...

IT is really personal and related to your financial possibilities. If you keep your stuff for long and you can afford it, i would personally keep it (I did that with my 1993 PRobe) but if you prefer new cool stuff or need money, i would sell it.
