It's been years since I've gotten on any Mazda forum and this was the first thread I saw.

I'm an original as well buying my 07 speed6 in March 2008 brand new.


Mine was tucked away on the corner of the lot and they said they simply couldn't sell it due to the price being so high for a Mazda. Low and behold it was mine an hour later after trading in my mazda3! I got a killer deal on it.

It's been a bulletproof car. Only oil changes every 3000 miles, spark plugs, fluids, and wiper blades I've had no issues. I'm at 104k miles

I had clutch and turbo replaced at 5k miles under warranty in 11/2008.

Great car, happy and lucky to get a late production unit

I'm still here...bought my car in Aug 2006, coming up on 11 years of ownership now.
It's been a great car but I think we might be getting to the end of the road with it as my main daily driver.
Can't believe how old the car (and myself) have gotten in the past decade XD.

That's awesome! I remember I saw the MS6 for the first time when I bought my MZ6i in 2006. I was awestruck when I saw it in the showroom. I didn't even know it existed and when I found out what it actually had in it, I vowed to get it. In the following year, I took one for a test drive at a local dealer and they refused to budge off the MSRP. So I went to the largest dealer in NJ and got it like $4k or more off MSRP.

Nice, you got me beat :-)

I agree, it's still a great car even a decade later. One of my mounting concerns as it ages was if it would remain reliable as a DD. I bought it to keep for the long haul. I feel a bit better now as it will share DD duties for me.

Ugh...if I had to go back and think of how much has changed for me over those past 10 years.

It's funny- the never heard of em, then had to have one is a story often repeated, even by me! I was hard core trying to locate a MSP that hadn't been abused in horrible ways (darn near impossible) and just stumbled across a pic that I thought was simply a neat body kit on an MSP... Looked at the ad a bit closer... ?!? What the heck is a MS6?

.... hmmmmmmmm
........ Really??
..............REALLY???!

a bit of shopping around and 48 hours later I owned my TiGray beasty.

When I bought my 1st MS6, new in 2007, I was actually set to buy a new TL as my daily (Had a 10 second Mustang at the time for my toy) and I stumbled across a used MS6 at a dealer. I test drove it & had to have one. Bought my '07 shortly after at another dealer for a steal. Got rid of that one little over 3 years later. It was rock solid. Only gas & oil changes. Then got into a huge mistake 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track. Ditched that less than a year later for a 335xi. Loved that, but wanted a C6 Vette more. Sold that & got the Vette. Sold that and got into another MS6. Did not sell the C6 because I wanted another MS6 more, though lol. I have had this MS6 for over 4 years now. Time for a big turbo.

Hey Stephen ( @Byakuya; )
This probably can't be done, tough to implement, verify etc, but I'm wondering if we could maybe get a badge made up for these original owners?

After a decade, or even longer, I think it'd be neat to do something to honor these folks! Heck, if you catch the management in a good mood maybe try to twist their arm into giving them Lifetime status too?

Maybe it's just early and the coffee hasn't kicked in yet, but it seems like a nifty idea

I'm completely okay with making a "Original Owner" or "Longtime Owner" badge or something like that.

I still have the template from when I made all the updated badges on here (6OTM, Moderator, Liftime member, etc).

Maybe like the lifetime badge, two rows with Speed6 on top and Original Owner across the bottom? I dunno- will totally defer to you and the community, I just wanted to toss the idea out and see if it would live on it's own

Wow, Seems like a short list so far. I bought my back in Nov 2005. It has been my DD until I modded. sob, sob, sob. Still trying to iron out kinks with the boost. Has been with CP-e for months now which is fine with me. Trying to keep costs low. Problem with W/M spraying and not hitting target boost.


Any way glad to see there are a few of us still around. Maybe someday soon I get to drive my car again. hahaha!
