    Default New Adelaide MPS 6 Member

    Hi guys!

    Blackbetty PM'd me on OzMazdaClub about this site.
    So far ive enjoy browsing around as a guest and i finally picked up my 2006 MPS 6 yesterday!
    2006 Titanuim Leather Pack MPS 6. 50,000kms on the clock, still under new car warrenty. (a good thing )
    Ive driven 3 of them now and this one felt the tightest and smoothest. (power came on nice and early etc)

    Well, i dont usually do these things but i though i would introduce myself.

    Im 21, Married, live in the Adelaide Hills, Work in Adelaide City.
    Have had a variety of cars over the years as i have a had a new work car every 3-4 months for the past year and a half.
    The list includes-
    Ford Focus Manual, Ford Focus Auto, Ford Falcon 6speed auto BF, 2008 FPV F6X (FPV version of the territory turbo), Holden Astra, Holden Captiva, Ford Territory, 07' BF MKII FPV F6 Typhoon, 09' FG FPV F6 Typhoon... um cant think of anything else...

    Its actaully been GREAT to drive so many cars, you get to see what the build quality is like, fuel economy in different situations, how practicle they are etc etc.

    Hope to speak to everyone soon.

    You have the exact same car as mine- How does it compare to the other performance cars you have had?

    And Welcome!

    And Welcome!
    Its different. It has many Pro's and a few Con's, the Con's are only when you compare it to a more japanese performance car design.

    PRO'S compared to my WRX, R34, S14:
    LEATHER!!
    engine noise
    Cruise control
    Trip computer
    big standard rims with good standard tyre size
    Cabin noise
    SUNROOF!!
    6 Speed!!
    Comfort for passesngers
    Comfort for driver
    Suspension harshness

    CON'S:
    Sloppy leather seats (remeber compared to WRX etc)
    A bit saggy through the corners
    Top mount intercooler

    Apart from that... its an ABSOLUTLY fantastic all round car.
    I needed something AWD 4cyl (wanted the turbo) so the range of what i had to look at was quite limited already.
    Did some reading, researching, drove one... Tipped me over the edge from buying a B6 Audi A4 1.8T.

    Cheers for the welcome guys.

    Would love to.

    I looked through the section for cruises and its setup is rather odd... no real state\territory sections for each state\territory to oragnise things in.

    we have a prefix system...where you choose the state for the cruise.

    Just look for the [SA] at the beginning

    Happy Motoring
