Well I've owned the Mazdaspeed 6 for about 2 months already so far no problems. Whenever people ask me how come i traded in the Lexus for a Mazdaspeed 6 they just shake there head and go but its under american brand "ford". Then I tell them its AWD and TURBO'ed to add to it. Then they look at the engine and go ah no potientail. So i give up dont know what else to say. Most of the people I tell them they either have EVO or STI. shrug. Anyone else get this?

Nope.
Tell them it is a 2.3L engine with DISI/AWD/Turbo/6speed. If they don't know what direct injection is then that's there problem. Just tell them it's more advanced then the engine in an sti/evo. LOL

For potentail just tell them to look at the performance gains on www.cpe.com. A downpipe alone nets a pretty significant increase in tq.

I thoroughly enjoy having a car that no one knows what the hell it is, and..... I've never seen another on the road yet. Cool IMO. :yesnod:

yeah..a ride in the car is all they need...
but enjoy the sleeper thing...it will keep you from getting pulled over.

no reason to muck that up with a big spoiler or flashy paint or wheels.
who cares if no one else ever loves the car...it's their loss

Your friends are trying to compare your family sedan with rally-ready sports cars. They're not comparing apples to oranges. That's why they show you no respect.

Tell them you bought a car that can haul a family of 4 plus it's got a little extra pep to get on the highways. Don't come off trying to act like it's a bad-ass sports car that compares to performance cars.

There wasn't a single person at ZoomZoom Live in Atlanta this weekend that didn't get out of the Speed6 challenge with a stupid big grin on their face. That speaks volumes about this car.

I agree with everyone else... I'm OK this car isn't that well known. It's fine with me if it goes down in the history books as one of those little known cars that was stupid fun.

Remember the Omni GLHS? How about the Starion and Conquest TSi? The Typhoon? Even closer to home, how about the Mazda 323 GTX? Most of these cars did not earn their reputations until years after production stopped. Now people search hundreds of miles for them. The Speed6 will be the same way. It will be under appreciated until it is gone.

As Stretch used to say:


:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I would think that MS6ers would prefer their rides to be categorized as a grand touring car, not a family sedan. Though, most probably fooled the wifey by describing it as a family sedan. :) Those sly foxes... :hoho:

it is a badass sports car that compares to performance cars. Just tell them that one has run a 13.7 stock. That pretty much speaks for itself. I would consider a family sedan a toyota camry. I dont know what you have against the speed6, but ive looked at alot of your post and they all have a little bit of sarcasm or negetivity towards the car. What gives?

Who cares, your friends are clearly not car enthusiasts, they're more like EVO and STi fanboys. Tell them to learn about all the cars on the market and if they're truely enthusiasts, they'll appreciate the goods of all cars. And the DISI 2.3L has no potential??? How do they know, no one in the world knows yet...

This direct injected engine is more technological advanced than the ones found under their hoods and scoops.

I could't have said it better :yesnod: Why do idiots post these things? Jealous :nana:
My MS6 is everything I wanted and hoped it would be. All I know is that stock my car is faster than my friends 06 mustang GT plus I have 4 doors !

As far as this EVO/STI thing. I could have bought any of the 3,but decided on the MS6.
1. The STI and LGT spec B ( which I test drove and didn't buy ) Are butt ugly and you see 4-5 of the STI's
every day. Now they are great cars but ugly.
2. Now the EVO,, this is a beautiful car and I almost pulled the trigger until I saw and drove the MS6.

3. From my personal test driving before buying I didn't find much difference between the cars metioned above. Now I didn't take them to a track nor do I intend to race. I bought the MS6 for looks, performance,value and color :love: .

This is the most I have loved a car since my 02 S4.
