If I were to have my inequity paid off by now (plus extra money to accommodate for vehicle depreciation), there is no doubt that I would go for a 2006 or 2007 Mazdaspeed 6. I've only had my 6 for a little less than six months so I am not willing to make any moves for a long time. I like and enjoy the car enough to where I could see myself keeping it for several years and having a nice sedan paid off already to drive, especially if I consider starting a family or something. I'm only to turn 20 in the next few months, so I'm much too young to continue playing around with my credit.

Probably a speed6... or that speed6 wagon that they just released in Europe, if it were available here. Nothing else really appeals to me right now.

I feel the same way about nothing else appealing to me. I know for a fact I'd never have another true American car again after the experience I had last time with my Chrysler.

I would probably go for the Speed6 this time around, now that I've learned to drive a clutch somewhat better than I could before.

I plan to keep my car for a long time to come though. I just got my 6 in June 06.

If I had money - STI

When I'm done with college and don't have to drive on the interstate a few hours every week - Subaru Baja or (another) Jeep wrangler.

If I can get the deal that I want within the next few Weeks, I'll be saying bye - bye to my 6 and hopping in a Speed6 hopefully.

The problem with AMerican Cars is that they don't want to innovate, they focus on too many exterior razzle dazzle, and Drag HP..

Nobody gives a shit if your car is RWD and 400hp if you don't have anything else remotely appealing....

the Grand Prix GTP uses a Supercharged 3.8L engine starting in 1997-current I beleive. The G6 GTP originally had a N/A 3.9L with 240ish HP with a 4 speed auto or a 6 speed manual. I think starting in 2007, the GTP has a "High Feature" N/A 3.6L with 250-260 HP and a 6 speed auto only.

I would too. But the Speed6 has a much more sensitive and difficult clutch. Its kind of a bitch. But the car is just amazing IMO.
