Ditto here Jin! Congratulations! I picked up my Sterling manual today too after some careful shopping research's of potential prospects; Mazda 3 S-GT, 2015 Honda Civic Si sedans, Fiesta ST, Focus ST, and a couple of others that didn't stay on the list very long.
I picked the iA for all reasons mentioned in this forum; fun to drive, economical, build quality, Mazda engineering/handling, Toyota/Scion warranty, and did I mention fun to drive....lol.
Zoom on my friend!
