I had some people call/ e-mail me about shipping. The answer is I can ship any car I have anywhere in the US. I can ship open or closed. If shipped closed, I use the same company that Lotus uses. If anyone needs a quote, let me know which car you are interested in and your zip code for a quote.

I also got questions abuot the Owner Loyalty Incentive. It is not necessary that you purchased your Mazda new, only that you have a current title or registraition. It can even be for a 1988 323 and you qualify. Pretty nifty huh.

Highly Recommended!

Mazda 6 is a perfect companion for a Lotus Elise/Exige, a perfect "second" car! It gives a tremendous amount of room for passengers and cargo, an exceptional handling and performance for a sedan, reliable, inexpensive and nice ride! My 2007 Mazda 6 gets 29 mpg and more than 30 mpg on longer trips. :D

I have the "i" 4 cylinder and the manual 5 speed and the 5 door (hatchback).
I highly recommend the Mazda 6. A cure for the SUV/pick-up blues!:D

Wallabyguy: Now, do I get a discount for a new Mazda 6?rotfl

Anything incoming with a manual trans? Thx!
black on black and sangria red on black. The manual is only available with the 4 cylinder. I can also trade for a specific car if there is something you are looking for..........

A ordered car would arrive in late October if you want a custom spec'd vehicle.

We just received our first cars with manual transmission today. A 6i Sport Value Edition with 6 speed manual has an MSRP of less than $20k!

We also got our first batch of GTs equipped with Navigation.

Let me know if you have any interest. I am discounting them for Lotustalk members.

Hi Robert. Care to give your driving impressions of the new 6?

My wife and I will be in the market around June-July when our Volvo S40 lease expires. Also, is open shipping from coat to coast about $1,000?

Hi Robert. Care to give your driving impressions of the new 6?..........................
Well I've driven both the S and I and every trim level, so this may take a while.

The car is much larger than the outgoing model. The new 6 is very quiet compared to the outgoing model. The new car has a Cd of only .27 and consideration was goven to every aspect of the car to keep things down to a minimum. There are even small wind deflectors on the front fo the wheel wells to move air around the tires!

The car has grown signifcantly and the ride shows it. The longer wheelbase provides much better ride comfort than the old car. The suspension is basically the same. All new parts but the design is very close. All that said, this is not a Lincoln and the car handles very well considering it's size. The suspension has been tuned to dial out a lot of the understeer as well as the nose dive when braking.

Brakes are enlarged and improved as is the steering. The turning radius is much better than the 03-08 car. This is quite a feat since the car grew so much in size.

The interior is cloth is, um, different. The material is almost a velour (sp) and feels funky. The pattern on the seat centers is a sort of maple-like strip and in beige it really looks out of place. The black cloth is better. I personally think leather is a muct for this reason alone.

The keyless start/ entry system is awesome. There are sensors in the front door handles that know when your hand is incerted into them, before you even pull on them, and unlock the doors. The interior instruments are a high point for the car. Everything feels high quality. People feel immediately comfortable in the car. The reason for this could be the Feng Shue (sp, again) that Mazda used in it's design. Everything is balanced from the controls on the steering wheel and the instument pod to the radio controls. It's really neat when you take notice.

The 2.5L 4 cylinder is a very nice engine. It has 170HP and moves the car around ok. It does get a little buzzy at higher RPM but it gets the job done. The 3.7L V6 on the other hand is simply awesome. It's matched with a great 6 speed auto box with a sport shift capabaility that actually works! It loves to hold gears and will downshift in a turn so you have tons of power to come out of it.

Some of the initial cars had some paint issues but the last few batches have been perfect. VIsually the car is stunning and, just like the Elise, no picture does it justice. The car has a great road appeal. It always gets looks on test drives. It looks much more expensive than it is.

true. the 4 cylinder is quite popular with rental and fleet sales. the 6 cylinder is a whole different ball game. today I had someone who crossed shopped it against the Acura TL, Lexus ES, Infiniti G and bought the 6. The loaded GT with the 3.7 is one heck of a car.
