    Smile HI

    Just bought a Mazda 6 MPS in Black Mica!

    Very impressive! Love the torque!

    I'll take some pictures of it and post them once I get the car touched up, polished and detailed as there are many stone chips and a few scratches, and swirl marks are so obvious. Don't think the previous owner took care of it at all!

    Hopefully I'll learn lots here because I am planning to do quite abit to it

    Welcome.
    Obviously a person of class and taste.
    Enjoy the MPS6.

    FWIW, my 6 gets stone chips if I just look at it with an evil glint in my eye. i think it's just very thin paint. I ended up buying an "Uncle Arthur" perspex bonnet protector. Looks like it should be on a Camry, but it does the job.

    Welcome, what a fine choice in car

    True about the stone chips, I went to get my bonnet resprayed and the paint and repair guy told me was a waste of time with the shape of our bonnets they are just prone to stone chips ... and he was set to make money out of it too

    Hope you have fun in the MPS6 capital of Australia
    Taken my boring, bland, lame Subaru and my fat ass and driven off into the sunset with a smile on my face

    Just adds to the sleeper look


    Just add some doilies to the headrests and one of those big metal sunvisors across the top of the windscreen and you'll be set

    Oh and don't forget the side mirror extensions for when you're towing the caravan

    I've touched up a few of my stone chips. I was pulling funny faces when I could hear the sand/rocks hit my car like it was rainfall. Cruises are meant to be fun though.

    I have scratches on the side panels, front bar and rear bar, looks like the previous owner dragged things out of the boot without lifting it.
    Might aswell get the stone chips touched up when I get all the defects removed from the car :P
    Still havn't got around to it yet though.

    Also had a look at http://www.ozmpsclub.com/forum/how-t...e-edition.html, must say it's pretty cool. Too bad I can only hear the induction if I boost it from 2500 - 3500ish .. any higher and the engine noise just over rides it. My car doesn't feel any different though. Will get around to buying a Short Ram Intake anyway

    Hi and welcome to another WA MPS6 member. I highly recommend the cruises. Great fun and good way to meet the rest of the WA crew.
