Greetings Gents!

I'm about ready to pony up and get a 6, but I have a dilemma. I need help in choosing the right car. The first is a 2006 sGT with 18"in. factory rims and a spoiler. It's pretty nice and it only has 319 miles on it. Dealer wants 23000 for it. I test drove this one and liked it ALOT. The other is a 2006 s value edition, with 21,800 miles on it; and the dealer wants 17990(still has the balance of the warranty too). But I haven't test drove this one yet. What do you guys think? By the way unfortunately they are both pebble ash colored.

The Grand Touring has lots more luxury in it than the SPE. I have the SPE but I am starting projects on it to enhance the interior and exterior. The cloth seats are comfy. I test drove a Grand Touring but I think the leather quality was too cheap as compared to the firmness I have in my Audi. Therefore, I went for the SPE since the price was significantly low.

Yeah, right now I have an acura, and I can see what you mean about the difference in the leather. I'm not sure about what add-ons I would do. Are some of the upgrades expensive? What kind of projects are you doing currently?

im pretty sure you could get a '06 speed6 for 23,000. maybe even in a color you would like.[/b]
I sure hope so. But I have only see one for sale here (Tallahassee, FL). Maybe I'll have to head over to JAX to see what goodies they have there

I bought my 2006 6S: V6 with the sport package, with manual trans, Bose package (not worth the $), moon roof in 2006 with 7 miles on it for $21,000 out the door. Shop around brother. And dont completely listen to the haters that own speeds. They are the top of the Mazda6 line but any model will be a blast to own. It's all what you want to do with it. And what your budget is. Insurance and the high octane need to be added into a speed purchase.
Happy hunting!!!!! Good luck!!

Thanks for the info. The Bose package sucks? That's a first. By the way Jax6s you suck. Where did you get your 6 from? Was it Mazda City?

Yes the Bose package is a shit knock off. I have had better sound in American built cars. You can find this fact noted all over this site.

The Bose stereo has been swell to me. For a mere 200-watt system, it sounds pretty good, but the only complaints I would have involve the lack of mp3 capabilities. I see you have Deftones' White Pony album as your avatar. That CD sounds fine in my 6. To get on topic here, I would probably go with the 6s with the lower mileage. It might be a few grand more, but it's also a higher trim level with more goodies. The difference in mileage is quite extreme as well between the two cars. The first choice is significantly lower and a bit more valuable due to its trim level. Either way, it's a 6. You won't be disappointed.

I got it from Duval Mazda.

I don't think Mazda City has any.

Tom Bush Mazda only have the 2007.
