BHR has not learned that driving a milly can also be fun........he still thinks it can't tow, remember?


Tow? He thinks it is made of sugar and melts in the rain :)

drool.gif I really like the looks of this car....especially the exhaust.

I would get rid of the rear wiper tho. Too much reminiscent of a minivan.

I've never understood its inclusion only on hatches on wagons but not sedans.

Be sure to give a verdict. Here the MPS come as sedan only. Better torsional rigidity I guess.
The engineers hoped to modify the boot lid in order to minimize wind resistance.The easiest method involved attaching
a rear spoiler, though that would detract from the vehicle's lines.
Alternatively, the lip of the lid could be enlarged, though that would require significant more work. Naturally, the team chose the second approach, and set to work in a wind tunnel lab in Miyoshi. A while later, they emerged with the hoped-for design, which was both aerodynamic and aesthetically pleasing...

ok first the 6s is just ok not all that much fun , now with the main event.... test drove the mazdaspeed 6 , it was raining which i thought was a good timing. The AWD was nice as well as the pick up and go. The turbo in it seems really small though, as far as handling : it wasn't bad at all for it being a good sized car.... i think if i was going to buy this i would of looked into an evo or sti first

I wouldn't want to discuss car design with females and people with rear spoilers unless the spoiler is stock.

And yet a sedan's rear screen angle is somewhere between that of a wagon and a hatch.

Depends on which car. Nowadays the rear window angle on hatch and sedans are often very similar, making it close to impossible to see the difference from a distance, at least if the viewing angle is slightly from the front side. The Mazda 6 is a good example. Previous euro Ford Mondeo even better.
