Attached are much more pics with further details for my Mazda 6:

I wish someday my life goes from Red to Green but right now, I am super satisfied with my Mazda.

Washed and waxed (I usually wash it once a month and wax it thrice a year, let me know if this schedule makes sense?)

The car has been serviced recently and following are the updates:

1. Oil and Filter Change: 70USD (Parts and Labor)
2. Front Brake Pads replacement: 200USD (Parts and Labor)
3. Spark plugs replacement (4no.s): 260USD (Parts and Labor)
4. Cabin air filter: 20USD (Mazda was quoting a 70USD for parts and labor but I bought an OEM filter online and replaced it myself)
5. Wheel balancing, alignment and rotation (60USD Total)

Engine is running silky smooth; I wish it continues like this forever!

More pics along with my observations:

Leatherette seats are comfy and hold you well in corners. I like this Beige/Black combination, looks much better than complete Beige IMO

I like the widely adjustable driving position and the small/big storage spaces provided all around. I feel the central armrest is placed very far back though.

I am not sure why maximum cars sold in US (except the luxury brands) are NOT equipped with auto-folding wing mirrors.

Believe me or not, this is not intentional. The bonnet reveals this ghost like design whenever there is lots of humidity and engine is hot.

Reverse Cam resolution is crisp. Guidelines don't move with steering though.

60-inch TV with box. No worries. Rear seats fold easily with just a pull of levers visible in pic.

Sunvisor mirror and light mechanism is near perfect. Doesn't blind you and you can actually see your face.

Door lights also act as puddle lamps. Door pockets are decent sized.

This key design is common to 2017 Mazda's model range.

I have this weird habit where I park my car next to most fancy cars in the parking lots.

Mazda is one of those brands which produce fun to drive cars which are reliable. Wonder why they're not as successful as they should be.

Anyway, your Mazda 6 is so classy that I can't get enough of it. Hope you have a great ownership experience in the years to come.

Was the engine oil used synthetic or mineral?

Out of topic, but the Miata scale model is RHD.

Thanks a lot for your compliment Turbohead. I always use the Mazda recommended OW-20 synthetic engine oil.

Your weird parking habit may not be so weird after all. I tend to park my cars next to other cars of similar make or shape, especially if they’re exotic, lol!
