Koala, make sure they get one!! :) :) Definitely post pics if you end up getting it too. I love the car, hopefully we'll be taking one for a test drive when they come into the dealership down here.

omg today my and a buddy took 2 cars for test drives :) first was a 2000 Lincol Ls v8 5 speed auto, not winter driven, 80,000 kms, looks brand friggen new (doctor used to own it) pretty sure we didn't need a salesman to go with us (i love having a a well known family to the whole province :)) so yeah we turned the traction control off, did a good donut and a good stripo, omg i'm in love with it. i love how it shifts into second, it's a dream on corners.
second test drive was a 2000, or a 2001 acura TL 3.2L 5 speed automatic. (once again, no salesman :)) it wasn't to bad, even with traction control off yuo can't do a burnout, it just kinda hops. since we did a test drive at honda and we know tyhe detailor (a good friend) we drove the acura in some construction zones to get it nice and dirty, when we got back to the dealer the salesman just laughed it was great.

oh both cars were full loaded :)

but yeah, i think we might stick to the mazdaspeed :) i'll try to convince him

I guess I would officially be the only one on this board that has driven the car. I did a car show with Mazda a few months ago, and they brought one of the prototypes. Because no one else on the team could freakin drive for the life of them, I drove it! Let me say, the clutch is weird and it makes it really difficult to drive. Over all, its insanely quick! I think it spools at like 3000RPM or 2500 or something. Anyways, worth testing out for sure. There is a black one here in Barrie for sale at NorthWood Mazda. They probably wont let you drive it, but for the price, just buy it if your looking for one!

Wow, $40 grand for a 4 cylinder turbo with 274 HP. That's a pretty penny! I remember when they were selling new Protege Mazdaspeeds for $30,000 or so. One dealer ended up clearing a few of them out brand new for $23,000. I was tempted to buy one, but I wasn't too keen on the style.

I wonder if the price will drop a bit on the Mazdaspeed 6's after some time.
