When I first signed up here I mentioned I'd have an MB6 in a few months. It has now been a few months. :P

 

It's a completely standard (for now!) Sicilian Red VTi with 90k on the clock. We've had it in the family for 8 years and I actually had the pleasure of learning to drive in it. Probably why I passed first time. :D

 

I'm picking the car up from my parents' place on Saturday (which is when their insurance ends and mine starts) so for now here's a few pictures I took a while ago.

Had to update it to reflect the change. :P Shame I don't have a 2 car driveway at home so I can keep the MB's beside each other.

Since I first saw the colour, I've always considered Sicilian Red to be my favourite on MB's. Pirates Black coming a close second. :) I won't give up on the MB3 as long as it doesn't give up on me. :D Just had nothing to update the build thread with yet.

I'll continue using it for work. The MB6 isn't replacing the MB3 :)

Hopefully I'll be able to add to the wonderfulness. :D I want to try to get as much done before Japfest, since I'll be on the Civic5 stand. :)

Nice clean looking MB6, lovely colour too ;)

 

Good to see you're staying with the MB3!  A bit like Mr.B on here, he's got a MB3 and a MB6 :)

Lovely colour indeed. :D

 

I think next year I'll start looking for an MB9, but for now I'm rocking the MB3-6 gang, yes. :D

And keep the mb6 and mb3 aswell mate?

 

As much as I love my MB3, it's going to cost more than the car is worth to fix all the rust and little problems it has. I'd be better off finding an Aerodeck and swapping the good parts from the MB3 over. Like I said though, that's next year's plans. :)

 

I'll be keeping the MB6 for a long long time. :)

That'll probably be what I'll end up doing. I'd be lucky to get my £300 back if I sold it whole. :lol:

Let me know when you do mate, I might buy it off you. Need quite a few bits to be honest, so could break it myself.
