    Future plans are to lower it once it's paid off. May also look into a tune if options are available at that time.

    I also added a bonus picture of the 08 IS250 AWD I had between the Accord and the CX-9. I traded my 99 Accord V6 in to buy it back in 2012. I sold the IS250 in 2015 and bought the CX-9 brand new in December 2017.

    The IS looked good, if the 350 or F had come in manual I might have gotten one.

    Mazda is making some really nice looking cars. I just wish they had the performance to match the looks, at least the 6. It came out and I thought it was gorgeous and I kept waiting for them to give it more power but they stuck it with that 185hp/184tq motor for so long. Then Mazda finally announced it was getting the 2.7 (or 2.9?) liter turbo from the CX-9 and I rejoiced and hoped for a manual, but they didn't do that either. No Mazdaspeed variants in sight, sad.

    Anyway your CX-9 looks very nice, such an upscale looking vehicle for that class.
