Thanks for all the info. Is rear backup camera standard on all Grand Touring 6's after 2011? I do like the fact for 13 that they put the 18 " wheels on the iGT. They look real nice. Damn its too bad it isn't 50 state compliant for emissions. That limits my choices for what is left of the 2013. I have been looking at used 2011 and newer. Seems like CPO asking is close to what $8 or $9k off msrp of new one would be, but that is asking.

Yes, all 2011-2013 Grand Touring models have the backup camera.
I'm not sure where you're located in California, but I did some searching in the Los Angeles area. I found a sharp 2013 Mazda6 i Grand Touring with 5764 miles on it, CPO, Silver/Black Leather and Rear Spoiler. It doesn't have the Tech Pkg or NAV and it's priced at $21,288. It's at Mazda of Puente Hills located in City of Industry. (I was actually using my cousin's zip code in Woodland Hills when I found it).
Being a CPO, you'd get the balance of the 3-year/36k Limited Warranty, then an additional 1-year/12k CPO Limited Warranty. The Powertrain Warranty would cover 7-year/100k from original date of sale.
It looks brand new....just thought you might want to check it out.

Thank you. I am actually in the SF Bay Area. According to Mazda's site there are 9 2013 iGT within 250 mi of me. I will see how low a few of these dealers are willing to go.

I thought you might find the following information useful-
Links to the Mazda Media Website-
2011 Mazda6- http://www.mazdausamedia.com/index.php?s=31676&item=1028#assets_71:319
2012 Mazda6- http://www.mazdausamedia.com/index.php?s=31676&item=974
2013 Mazda6- http://www.mazdausamedia.com/index.php?s=31676&item=1062
The link will take you the first page with the official Press Release for that year model. It summarizes any changes or updates but also includes lots of marketing “fluff”.
There are two other tabs for each model year- Photos and Documents. The Photos tab contains lots of high-resolution photos, inside and out and in a variety of colors. But the really useful information is found on the Documents tab. You’ll find two (2) PDFs on that tab, one called SPECIFICATIONS and the other PRICING. SPECIFICATIONS is usually 8-11 pages long and itemizes every minute detail change compared to the previous model year, then it has charts to indicates which features are standard and which are optional on each trim level. PRICING is just a one-pager with a listing of every trim level available and its MSRP, all factory options/packages and prices, and all ‘accessories’ that can be included on the car from the factory (which are otherwise available from the dealer). It also details the contents of all Option Packages.
I’ve always found the info VERY useful, especially since Mazda changed the content or trim levels on the 2009-2013 Mazda6 EVERY YEAR (literally)!

I was kinda curious about the remaining 2013s that you're looking at within 250 miles of SF, so I decided to do a search and check them out.
The one that caught my eye as a potential great deal was the 2013 'i' Grand Touring, Steel Blue w/ Black Leather and the only option is the Rear Wing Spoiler. The Sticker Price is $28,980 (since it doesn't have the Tech Pkg or NAV), so it could end up selling for around $22k or so....
I also ran across a NEW 2012 'i' Grand Touring that could also be a great deal. It is Black w/ Black Leather and it has the Tech Pkg and NAV. It has a Sticker Price of $31,890, but it's been sitting there for at least 18 months and, regardless of physical age, it's TWO MODEL YEARS OLD and it will be THREE MODEL YEARS old within the next month or two when the 2015 models are released!
As a Used Car, the 2012 with the same features, in Outstanding/Excellent Condition and with ZERO/ONE mile, the Suggested Retail Price ranges from $22,633 to $23,920. I priced it on Edmunds, KBB, ClearBook (on TrueCar) and NADA. So the Sticker Price or the Dealer's Invoice price are largely irrelevant to the amount you should pay for the car! The moment you drive off the lot, it will be a USED 2012 Mazda6 and worth no more then $23,900 (at most). So negotiate from that standpoint if you end up considering this 2012 model.
BTW, the Steel Blue 2013 is at Razzari Mazda in Merced, CA and the Black 2012 is at AutoNation Mazda of Roseville in Roseville, CA.
