Well, I just bought and took delivery of a brand new 2017 M6 with the premiere and tech package last week.
I have all of 230kms on it so far.
It is a beautiful car, no question. That is one of the things that attracted me to it.
I added tinted windows, the Mazda trunk lid spoiler (not standard in Canada), mud flaps, and colour matching body side moulding (with the Mazda 6 logo).
I'm afraid to park it anywhere now.
Anyway, the heated steering wheel is nice, but I agree that it would be better if it was heated all the way around.
As for power, I didn't feel it was an issue when I test drove it before buying, and I am still quite happy with the performance.
I'm not taking it out on the drag strip or a track. That's not why I bought it.
As for noise, compared to my last car, this thing is very quiet.
The GT comes with thicker glass, so I think that makes a difference.
The ride is a little stiff and controlled, but that's what I prefer.
I imagine the 19 inch wheels have something to do with that. Maybe 17's would soften it up a bit. Again, I'm quite happy in that department.
The one thing I wish it had that my last car had: auto down windows through the FOB.
I could lower the front windows on my previous car with my key fob.
This shouldn't be hard to program in, so hopefully they'll incorporate this feature on a future update.
I'm still experimenting with all of the nanny features, but so far I like what this car can do.
The laser cruise control is amazing, once I learned to trust it.....lol.
As for space, again, not an issue. It's just my wife and I now, and there's plenty of room in the back for the grandkids.
The trunk is huge too. No lack of space at all.
