Pop out gear is very common on BMW too. Mime have been popped out more than 10 times in 4 yr and the dealers always have 2 answer : "Sorry, can't duplicate the problem" or "It is normal on ne manual car"

Okay...that's weird. Why did they put foglights below the main headlight assembly? Aren't the 6's foglights supposed to be integrated into the main light assembly (like the Jetta)?

And, I just saw something hilarious...if you go to Mazda's US site, and go configure a 6 Sports Sedan, you've got two choices.... Mazda 6i Sports Sedan and Mazda 6s Sports Sedan Regular Cab. Guess you can get the "Extended Cab" option, and add a 3rd row of doors to that baby!

one thing about the fog lights...if you look at the brochures when they first came out, you can get OEM fog lights on the bottom of the car installed. I asked the dealer about getting a pair if I got the car (cause I don't like fog lights in the same housing as regular head lights) and they had no idea what I was talking about...even when I showed them the brochure. All they kept on telling me was the fog lights are integrated

So, if that's so, then does that mean that when you turn on your fogs, you'll get 4 lights? The ones below the headlights and the ones integrated into the headlights?

this would blow the doors off of an rx8. do they plan on releasing the rx7 before this one? It wouldnt make sense to me to put out a version of the 6 that is faster than their sports car.
probably will be cool, though.

I see it got some of the Volvo exterior styling, and probably got the AWD from Volvo as well.

"Coming in early summer, the MAZDASPEED6 will feature a direct-injected turbocharged 2.3L engine, 6-speed manual, all-wheel drive, a modified suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels and a significantly more rigid body structure. Aggressive, yet sophisticated styling enhancements plus the practicality of mid-size accommodations complete what will be Mazda's ultimate performance sedan."

I have to imagine this car will be around mid to low 30's and i don't know if i would want to spend that much on a mazda, never the less i think it looks great and would like to see one on the road, hell i would like to test drive one, i test drove last years model and thought it was a little slugish.

good observation. I didn't think about that. Ford is partial owner, correct?

Hopefully it got the S60R drivetrain.
