Good lord that's a little money.

That's a great price for a car that can beat most others in its class.

And beat cars above its class as well!

The more I look at the Speed3 the more I like it. Maybe I'll get lucky and get the wife to let me trade in my 6s for it :hoho:

wow thanks mazda for totally fucking us over, first it was the extra rebates, then the announcement of the 07 MS6, not they're giving this car away for 22k. i'll be lucky if this car is worth 50% of it's MSRP when my lease is up.

"Giving it away"?

A MS6 GT is ~$3,000 more than a loaded Mazda6GT with MTX.

A MS3 GT is ~$3,000 more than a loaded Mazda3GT with MTX.

It has exactly the same premium over a loaded model as the MS6 does. And, in fact, percentage-wise, it has a greater premium than the MS6 does. And it doesn't have the very expensive AWD.

What'd you expect them to do? Charge a couple grand less than the MS6 for it, making it $7,000 more than a comparably-equipped regular Mazda3 despite offering less over a regular model than your MS6 offers over a regular Mazda6?

If they're "giving away" the MazdaSpeed3 at $3,000 over a regular Mazda3 then they must have been "paying you" to get a MazdaSpeed6 even at full MSRP, because you got a whole lot more extra stuff (particularly the $$ AWD, which in and of itself is worth the premium) for the same premium that MS3 buyers are paying.

Actually I heard the AWD on the msp 6 is not on full time like that offered on cars like the WRX. Some actually go as far as to call it 'fake'. Anyway, AWD imo, is a little overrated. It has it's place esp in certain climates and it certainly helps the launch, but it's more expensive to own in the long run and adds a lot of extra weight. Also launching an AWD at high rpms regularly can cause some trannies to explode (talk to the WRX guys)and there are already reports of broken axles on on speed sixes. I think the price for the msp 3 is cheap considering what's being offered. Although it still isn't as cheap as an srt-4 it's definately a good bang for the buck. I will admit though, that the insane rebates and low prices being offered for msp 6 right now, make it a very attractive buy to those looking for that kind of car.
