Actually yesterday was the true test when an auto body guy I was meeting asked if my body was the same as a 2010 he worked on, and I had a split second to decide whether to say "m-kay 6" or "mark 6". Luckily I chose the second and correct one. Lol...crisis averted.

Absolutely. It's an abbreviation for Mark VI that some people apparently take literally.

No, it's not shorter to say, 3 syllables vs 2. English 101

I let people know I have a 2012 GTI. Some are clueless to what that even is, but I think it is safe to assume most people not familiar with VW won't know M-K-6 from Mark 6 either.

I always remembered it to be "mark". However whenever I type MK6 I just say em-kay six. Em-kay em-kay meh I got used to it.

^^ Correct. At least in these here parts.

And lets not forget the Mk46 torpedo:

Isn't that a cool picture on the wiki entry? Why yes, yes it is.
