White water pearl is probably the most sought after color on the forums, hopefully Qwik6 will post some pics of his car before the vette.. top 3 MS6 ever. These cars are very fun but they can be a headache, would need some "safety" mods once you got it.

Just out of curiosity, any idea how much it might cost to replace that bumper?

I know, i dont own a speed but prices shouldnt be too different. A brand new OEM replacement (not from mazda) bumper for mine was $300 plus tax. Paint was another $300 even and i installed myself. I would say no more than $800.

You're looking at more than 1k for the bumper alone, since they're so rare. Hell, even the plastic black inserts for the rear cost 250 a piece. Which is why these cars are so easily "totaled" by insurance companies.

Agreed.

My rear bumber required 1200$ in repair to reshape/reform with heat and spot paint in the dented area plus all new clearcoat. Plus then a new taillight and a insert.

I was why no new bumper and the insurance said this costs less.

I'm glad they reshaped though because I didn't want all new black paint. It wouldn't have matched very good i think to the rest of the car. The new clearcoat is a big enough difference as it is.

Just an update: I went to the dealer to see it today and it failed their inspections so they got rid of it. Drove a Speed3 around a little and loved it, but I'm thinking of going in a different direction. At a nearby dealer I found a 2008 Subaru Forester that I kind of like and they're willing to drop the price for me. Haven't made any decisions, but I probably won't be pursuing a Speed6 or 3 anymore. But thanks for all your input, I appreciate the friendly and helpful advice. Enjoy your awesome cars!!

I would wait...

There will be another MS6 that'll pop up sooner or later. They are exclusive and rare, but as of lately everyone has been trading them in for other cars and not to mention that 99% of people don't know that they're boosted AWD cars.
