Haha, sorry, no it wasn't fun plowing my driveway (I need to quit smoking).

I'm up in North Van. Right below Grouse Mountain, in fact.

I totalled my 6 end of last December when I hit a patch of blackice going westbound on #1 (at the Grandview overpass).

Damn, I miss her, but can't complain with my new baby.

You're in a bad mood! Heck, imagine me! Dead broke and need new clutch! I doubt I'm ever buying another North American model Mazda! If I do buy it'll be a model with proven reliability and made in Japan and not redesigned specifically for us! (except for LHD of course) Why couldn't they just give us the overseas Mazda6? No, they have to go crap things out and give us the version that everyone seems to have the exact same problems with! You have something that works (overseas Mazda6), then why change it for us in North America!

We should all move to either Australia or Europe.

Don't even think about Japan.

The streets were so congested when I went there, I almost vowed never to drive again.

Good thing I didn't haha :)

haha here in Montreal we're still getting 16 deg. like tomorrow .... guess you gotta move more South eh !?

16 degrees? Damn, that's awesome :D

I'd be happy with 5 degrees here. As long as it doesn't snow so much.

I'm all ready to do HID retrofitting, caliper painting, extra grounding, engine highlighting, and coilover installs.

My baby needs a wash as well :p

Jeeeese ; I just saw this on the news earlier today and this IS in Vancouver !!! LOL I thought before this was more North Vancouver . You guys generally see 1 - 2 weeks of snow max ! Right ? When has THIS happened before ; the 30+ cms ?
Don't worry ; it should melt pretty quickly so you can get on with your MODS :yesnod:
We should be getting our first sight of snow with accumulations of 2 cms friday night into saturday ; it's dropping to 0 & -2 saturday gotta put my Nokians on now ... but just don't want to seperate from my Chromies ....

oh well I still love my Silver OEMs that I'm kinda missing .... can't wait to see if I get the ''size-effect'' back to bigger when I put them back on those Silvers ? You see before I dropped her with the MS springs ; I had put Chromed OEM mags on her and for some reason the mags ''looked'' smaller than the Silvers and just made the wheel gap that MORE obvious !!! Ever sinced dropped things are mucho better . Now I wonder if the car will ''look'' even lower NOW with the FAT lookin' Silvers back on !!? Heheh

ok....
i was out for a run...lol... was sorting of sliding in the snow here and there and got stuck in the neighborhood...
I am still wondering if I should put the mazdaspeed springs on it.... or maybe the problem isn't the ground clearance.... the problem is my tires...?

How many km's do you have on your 6?

IMO, I'd hold on to the spring installs until it warms up a little. Nothing crucial, though.
