New Mazda6

Hey ya'll! Just picked up a 2011 6 on Saturday. (The 10th) Never saw myself as a Mazda owner before, but Im really liking it!
Already looking at wheels. I like the way the 19's look, but those things are rediculously priced. So, Im looking for 18's. Im not going to drop my car because I live in the mountains. I need the height for the hills and for the snow/ice during the winter. So, it's stock height for me. I even thought about 20's. But I drive a lot, so I wanna keep the weight down for the mpg's. That left me at looking at 18's. It'll probably be next spring/early summer before I get them since it's already winter and we've had snow.

Thanks!
Im detailing it tomorrow. The dumbasses at the dealership used some kinda crap when they detailed it. It left really bad water spots all over the paint and the windows. I made them take care of it. They clay bar'd it and waxed it. The paint looks better now, although I need to finish buffing the streaks out. You can tell they used a drill. They couldnt do the windows completely, so I bought some bug remover stuff. I wanna see if that works.
It's nothing special. Just the 2.5 with a manual. And black.

Welcome!

Being a ex-dealership detailer that place you got it from sounds like they don't know anything about cleaning up cars. Hope you get it lookin good. Put some pics up after your done.

Thanks, Jordan. I spent an hour today trying to get that crap off of there. Still hasnt worked. Well, on the windows. Paint looks GREAT though. If they end up calling me, which I think they do after you have owned the car for 2 weeks, I will tell them about the windows. It's pretty annoying. Hell, they did the driver's side mirror, but not the passenger side! They also got some kind of crap on the plastic pieces inside the car. I got it out with some scrubbing and Armour All. Even put the stuff on the guages. Windex took care of that though I think what they did was used some sort of liquid on the WHOLE CAR.
