Geeez, look at that wheel gap. Get some window tint! Needs an intake! Needs Exhaust! Needs Wheels! Needs ricer body kit!


OK, not really.... White's a really sharp color on the new 6! I've been a fan of the gray (go figure), but that white is the business!

It's so pretty! :D that black grill looks extra sharp with the white paint.

I Will GLADLY get all that done if you're the one installing it for me, and you sign a waiver that makes you liable for any voided warranties and any/all repairs required because of said installed items :D


Agreed though, the pearl white really stands out in the sun. I'm loving all the turned heads I see as I drive by.

What is a warranty?

I think a 2013 Great Mazda Mt Climb Vinyl would be a nice additional mod though ;)

OH Thanks for reminding me!
@bluepotpie - Andy if you're like me to stop by at some point so you can measure my windows for club stickers I'd be happy to.
@block8head if you wanted to look into Vent Pods for the 2014 I'd be happy to stop by for your measurements as well :)

Show me your ride....
Let me guess"Red?" :p
1st page of this thread :)

Pearl White FTMFW!

And I'm assuming that's a "yes please come in so I can see how a pod might fit, and possibly have sex with your car"


...................





Well, that escalated quickly.

I think white has a way of making any car look sportier, and it looks especially good on the new 6. Can't wait for my local dealer to get one in in the pearl white. I really like the way the grille and side mirrors look in contrast to the white. I can't wait to see many more pics of your beautiful ride.

Shiro Shinobi - "White Ninja"

A new chapter has begun. For the first time in my life, and probably last time for long while, I have become the owner of a brand new car.

You all know me and my 2004 Performance White GT. She treated me well, but alas, she was on her last legs and I could no longer care for her with my limited amount of resources and knowledge of cars.

I have no mods planned (for now), mainly because I do not want to ruin perfection. The ONLY thing that I might change are the plate lights to a nice white LED because the yellow ones just don't do the white car justice.

I've already written my review of this car, so I will not write another. I am beyond ecstatic with this purchase, and I'm excited to Photo Dump in this thread at my earliest opportunity.

I present to you, my 2014 Snowflake Pearl White Grand Touring Mazda 6

Here are some cell phone pics to whet your whistles. ;)







I'm thoroughly looking forward to working on this car for many years to come. I will be making a few threads in the 3rd gen section to try and help out other new owners and will update them as well as I can.

Welcome to the NEW Byakuya, same old post whore, new car! :lol:
That's awesome man, I'm glad you ended up getting what you wanted in the long run. Repping the third gen no doubt!
