    Wink Mazda MPS........What Mazda MPS???

    Been out to Bristol all day looking at a Corsa for the fiancée and on the way home caught up to a Mazda 6 MPS. I thought I will give him a run for his money and embarrassed him about four or five different times lol. I knew he wanted to play when I first passed him, but I left him picking up my unburnt diesel LOL. Not knowing if he was trying (properly) so I let him pass me so I was doing the chasing. I definitely had more pulling power than him as he had to move over to let the superior motor vehicle pass!

    The 6's are heavy with the all wheel drive but shouldn't be smoked buy an oiler... Either it has a blown turbo, or its just a re-badged 6.

    OR your oiler is EPIC.

    Mazda 6 MPS is 250bhp and has a 2.3T engine.

    Same goes for a Saab 9-5 2.3T.

    They are street sleepers and very very quick, give a VXR a run for their money especially in the twisty bits.

    Aye your VXR may be faster, but an oil burner is not anywhere near as quick! I went to buy one when i had not long bought my oil burner - nice car and quick but decided to but a 2.0T instead(still wish i had bought the 6)

    I wasnt meaning to sound as though i was braggng there, i was just saying dont expect them to be that fast a car, they have a lot of weight to lug about, there very thirsty too. Youd regret the 6 every time you sat in the ahem "leather" seats, no support and they must be vinyl or somethng cos they soo shiny and cheap looking. Mine had done something like 23k iirc and was mint but such a dissapointing car i couldnt wait to see the back of it, to think i got rid of my mint 3.2 gsi for it

    The Mazda 3 MPS with the same engine has also been described as disappointing and not as responsive as you would expect from such a powerful engine.

    Maybe he was just worried about fuel prices and didn't want to thrash it....
