Hello fellow Canadians, I'm new to the site as well. I am seriously considering a Mazda6, based on the great reviews I have read and the great looks (sorry Honda, but Mazda's got you beat in that department!). I was wondering, those of you who have already ordered or are driving your 6, is the performance difference huge between the 4 and 6? I'm aware of the obvious (160 vs. 220) but does it justify the extra initial cost and higher fuel consumption on the V6? I would be getting the manual tranny in either one. I will eventually drive both, but just wanted a heads up for now. Any opinions would be appreciated.
