"For those who wanted a 6-speed manual, you would be pleased to hear that you can get one in the i GT trim now."
aviboy97 -- thanks for this nugget! I'm glad I held out. Much more likely I'll pony up for a 2013 model now. I was disappointed at being restricted to an optionless Touring for 2012 when I sought one out to replace my '02 Protégé (and Mazda was very guarded every time I contacted them re: future stick shift availability).
One quick question: do you know if one will be able to also pop for the "Tech Pack" if the manual is chosen? I'd like it for the Xenons and alarm. Or will Mazda just figure "look, we're at least now giving you a sunroof, Bose and heated leather seats so take it or leave it." A fair point they'd be making, but it wouldn't hurt to have the remaining few goodies. Thanks for all of your info.

I don't know if you still check this account, but have you figured out the low washer fluid issue? I have the same car (and also live in TX), and my wiper issues started popping up. First, the indicating light didn't come on for low fluid. Then, after refilling it barely trickles out rather than spraying out. I had to get a windshield replaced, so I'm wondering if they messed something up.
But, I saw your post so I figured I'd ask if you resolved your issues. Please let me know.
