That's not the proper question to ask. The proper question to ask is "When are you interested in modding it?" :D

I got Onyx Black w/black cloth. I will post pics when I get them taken. And to the other poster, yes I am interested in modding it. I'm thinking a CAI to start. I also did a little research and saw there is an add-on performance chip you can get that installs between the ECU and engine and can give a 28hp gain...is that possible? It is the Unichip 1320021, and I found it on autopartsperformance.com. Any comments?

Its like $800 and they say a 10-15% increase. A few people around here have claimed to have installed them - there hasn't been a lot of cold hard facts about it the improvements.

Search Unichip here and other similar forums and you'll see the jury is still out on the product.

Ok, I'm going to pick up the car this afternoon. Was up early this AM. Just like a kid on Christmas morning.

(And yes, I responded to my own initial posting! )

So, I picked up my Mazda6 and so far, it is great! Compared to my previous car (2003 Sentra Spec V) it is much smoother, quieter, more comfortable & refined, and quality of interior materials are much better. Mazda really has come a long way and rejuvenated their brand with the M3, M6, and the rest of their lineup.

Can anyone comment on the actual observed gas mileage with the 6cyl? What are people really/typically getting on the highway?

One thing so far is that it has this heinous burning smell (either the exhaust or something underhood it seems). I'm sure it's just something that has to burn off, but it's really bad. I remember my SpecV smelling similar when it was new. Anyone have this problem when they first got their M6?

it could be that its new and you got to break it in and also there's a whole thread on that subject. its really how you drive keeping the rpms low with the stick-shift will get most gain on gas
