    I like the MS6, but you guys are right that it doesn't compare well to a WRX. Price-wise, it will probably end up in STI territory. I'd definitely consider one if I had $30k+ to spend on a sport sedan.

    The MS6 is not to be in competition with the WRX or even the STi, but with the Legacy GT.

    The MS6 is pretty nice. I liked the interior, can't argue with the bose and satilite navigation. The exhaust on the other hand was I don't know what they were thinking with that

    mazda knows how to build "drivers cars" and mazdaspeed only improves upon that... i'm sure mods will pop up, especially since this was a japanese model before it came here.
    Yes, that is me in my avatar! Kid's don't try this at home.

    But then you don't have any power options in the RS (not even power windows), not to mention the navigation, satilite radio, bose sound system and what not of the MS6.

    This would explain your obsession with powerless fwd cars.

    True, I guess it just depends on what you are looking for. The RS being the stripped down racer and the MS 6 being the fun daily driver.

    However, the MS 6 is a pig at 3600 lbs.

    don't hate me 'cause i'm beautiful.

    first of all, everyone calm down, i mentioned in the opening thread that the LGT was compared directly to the MSP 6...the LGT won because it was a better daily driver, which i think was fair given the demographic.

    a similarly equipped WRX will also run you the same amount of dough as a MSP 6. if you still don't believe the price comparison, keep in mind that a LGT will easily go north of $30K if you want some luxury thrown in, which makes the MSP 6 a bargain and more into WRX Limited territory.

    obviously, numbrers only explain so much, but the Miata, RX-8, RX-7, and MX-3 are all terrific cars to drive, and i'm sure the 6 is no different.

    IMHO, the only thing the 6 gives up to the WRX is the boxer rumble and superior Suby AWD.
    embattled, we prevail...only victory exhaled.
