    Cool New member and proud new owner "TOWNSVILLE" :)

    helloooooo all!

    i have just bought myself a 2006 Mazda 6 MPS

    in 2005 i went for a drive with a very good friend in a mazda dealer principals brand new MPS 6 and was very impressed. now its almost 2011 and i decided to give it a go myself, much to the dismay of that very friend (his dream car, and i got it first :P)

    its been a long journey, in 2003-4 i had a WB carbi fed Festiva (bucket of crap), 2004-6 i had a 1994 VR commodore (regret letting that go, it was like new and my father passed it down to me) 2006-8 i had a brand new 2007 plated SP23 hatch in aurora blue (i really really REALLY regret selling that, cause it would be paid for soon if i kept it :P). in 2008 i sold the sp23 for a 2007 BF mkii Fairmont Ghia. beautiful lazy sloth of a car, but thirsty as hell, and i could feel problems coming. hence i offloaded it, and im now sitting in a liquid silver MPS 6

    its a hard, firm ride, with hard firm seats, plenty of power (but i already want more) but i love it. i do miss my auto tho (first manual since the WB festiva). the misses has put her foot down now tho, so this car will be mine for the next 5 years until it is paid off

    so thanks a bundle for reading my rant, and i look forward to talking more over the forums. for anyone who reads the Ford Forums im on there as IceValk85 as well.

    Welcome to the forum Ice! I joined just a few days ago.

    My 3MPS is coming next week and I'll be moving to Townsville late January. Looking forward to meeting up with you and the Cairns crew for the baton relay.

    Enjoy your beast!

    thanks all for the welcome

    ive had the car bout 2.5 weeks now and i love it

    what really annoys me tho, is the notchy clunky shift from first to second, especially when cold (ive stuffed it up once already and get that delightful GRRRRRRRRRR of gears misbehaving)

    cant wait to get a CPe rear mount. wish i had a spare $200 to do it now! moving house is expensive tho

    off to wash the beast now
