Thanks, and ya the iX's are pretty hard to find, especially in a 5 speed.

I looked for over half a year for the perfect car, I was acutally talking to Nic Drago at one point to buy his out in Colorado, but he decided to keep his.
Kept looking and found this one on Portland's craiglist. Flew up, bought it, and drove it down to the SF Bay Area the next day.
Super happy with it.

And why would you prefer a lack of power in snow? That power can get you un-stuck in snow, allows you to accelerate through heavier patches, and is a heck of a lot of fun to do parking-lot snow drifting with!
That car's so slammed, snow to the hood screen isn't that deep

Seriously though, in my experience, high-horsepower cars get squirrelly when you don't want them to. I prefer low-end for snow and ice. And for drifting I like selectable 4WD, with the option of 4Low. That'll get out of some sticky situations

Well, to each their own. A ridiculously fun, fast AWD wagon w/ room for lots of friends and gear is an awesome setup for most of us..

And as far as how high-HP vehicles do in snow, it depends on the driver. My friend (the owner of that XT) does have a cobb accessport w/ different programs to run the engine, all changeable from the driver's seat, and he has one in particular that can power through just about anything slowly, the same way 4wd low works..

I think its sick,and I'm picking one up soon!

Very nice!!! I'm looking to swap my 05 Mazda 6 GT for an 06/07 MS6 to get the awd. The lease was up on my CX7 GT and the Fiancee wanted to get the new 6 so now I'm awdless and and fiending for some snow drifting.

I'd keep the CX7 GT if I were you. It's probably the coolest looking, most fun to drive, non-luxury brand SUV out there. Plus if you have the 2.3 turbo engine, that thing just hauls.

The MS6 is a fast car, but it's still a boat of a car. But hey, anytime you get a Mazdaspeed, you get points for exclusivity.
