Hi guys;

I m sure most of you have come across with some story of mistaken identity with your MS6. I thought I would write up some experiences here. I 'd make the story short and brief:

1) Once at the parkade, this hot chick with her b/f approached me while i was getting into the car, she asked me what kind of car it is cos she has seen many of them on the road and yet she can't seem to figure it what it is and even through her research online. I told myself there is no way she has seen many of them on the road, so i go.."ah..this ONE? this is a MS6". I pointed the one parked next to me, "that's a 6 wagon". She was like.."oh..Mazda..SPEEDDDDD 6..." lol Of course i drove off the lot and she was admiring it all the way from behind..damn i wish i could pick her up for a ride..hehe

2) This car rental company manager (next to where i work) asked me how i like my new Mazda 6 comparing to my Altima 3.5SE before, i said i like it, cos it's simply faster because it's a MS6. He goes, "oh yeah? it's got a 6 Speed tranmission!?, i go 'yeah,..call it Mazda Speed 6 or 6 Speed anything you want to call it"

cult car yes. I haven't had anyone really ask about my car yet. My old MSP got called everything, lancer, sentra, 6, even had the service tech at a mazda dealership (guy) call it cute! blah. But I just call it a mazda6, it gets annoying having to explain what the speed means all the time.

I was at a Car show yesterday, and i had the Speed6 with the hood popped, and all these stupid people came around looking at i; "ohh, check it out, he put a turbo in it" "check out the intercooler, musta cost a lot"

I loved seeing so many people around it, put a HUGE smile on my face :D

Heh, I have the ATENZA Badge on my Mazda6 Sedan. I've had so many people ask what the atenza is, if the car was specially ordered or imported.

Anyways I love the fact that *most* people out there don't knwo the difference (by looks) between the MS6 and the Mazda6. Largely, you will only be able to tell if you are a Mazda enthusiast. A sleeper car in a way :)

Just me, but everytime I see the new Lexus IS250-350 I think it's a 6.
