It was either the volvo S60R or the speed6. I made the right choice. The volvo people wouldnt budge and well, I saved 18k on my speed 6 over buying the way over-priced S60R. The Mazda is gonna be awesome which I got for $24,500. I'm content and now I have $4000 tucked away for mods if and when I can stop being in-decisive!

I leased with an option to buy. I got 4500 off from the selling price, and i put down 3500 of my own. I opted for 10,500 miles per year so the payment would factor in lower. My residual is 45%. I think I did alright. It also helps that one of my co-workers knows their business manager so they did all they could, which is nice.

I get on 696 right where it starts, then move onto 75 over to Troy. American Drive, right before M-10 right? I'm not totally familiar with the area, been here for less than a year, know how to get to work, the supermarket, home and a decently cheap gas station.

If im picking the car up today, then all of the known recalls/tsb's and any available reflash will have been done? I should assume this to be correct however I should ask none-the-less?

Hey Guys..

Congrats Confuc1ous on the Car. It sure is fun.
Thought, I should introduce myself too :)
I live and work in Ann Arbor. I have a Black Sport MS6 and enjoying it everyday ( I got a Passport Escort soon after :D ). Car's a bit heavy though ;)

There's one more guy (Keith) from the Detroit metro area that I have interacted on the forums. Apart from that I have seen just one other platinum ms6 in AA and that was about a month and half back. Not seen one since.

PS: When I got my car it did not have the recall peformed. But two days later when CEl lit up and took it in, they performed the recall too.

I'm in the Kalamazoo area and have a velocity red Speed6. Haven't see any others over here except the one I drive.

Too bad I'm all the way over here on the west coast of Michigan. :D

Dang, that is a good price! I thought $25535 for mine was good! What options? Sunroof, Nav, Sirius?

You'll love the car! Get ready for the Mod bug to strike :drive:


My new wheels and tires show up tomorrow from tirerack, I may suddenly come down with an illness at work :)

My GT came with the moonroof, wheel locks, the cargo net and the moonroof wind deflector which will be removed thereafter. I now have to wait, instead of taking delivery today, I have to wait til Thursday. I was so psyched to see the car and the dealer, who told me it would be here today called me at work and said that he wont have it until Thursday, its coming from Columbus, Ohio. Which sucks.

Question...I'm getting the CP-e Intake and I was told that just getting that alone will give me a lot of sound as it is, with turbo whistle, the blow off valve and just the general cold air intake suction sound, is this true?

I dont know I feel about the car being too loud.
