Hi I am getting an RX-8 later this month.
i have been having a helluva time with Mazda this last week, they have been promising delivery dates for months and for the last week it has been "you\'ll hear at the end of the week" then the beginning of next week, then the end of the week again etc etc.
Ultimately I found out that all the dealers had been given the dates but my dealer had no dates, customer care couldn\'t tell me why and you can\'t contact mazda head office except by email and they had gone home for the w/end. They were all being completely useless and kept giving the excuse that their \'system\' was down.
On this monday i got a letter saying my dealer (Hassops in Willesden) had been disenfranchised by mazda but there was a new dealership which would take over our cars. I phoned them, they had a list of 37 cars but no order nos. or names to go with them. Most worrying was that there was no car on the list that fitted the spec I had ordered.
I very annoyed and upset by this point.
Yesterday they told me that the car will come 27th Nov. I was disappointed that it was so late, as I had expected to be one of the first ones as I had put down a deposit long before the order books opened but relieved they hadn\'t lost the order.
However, the first rx8 came into the dealership yesterday and was a silver one like mine, so I went over and had a look at it, it was absolutely gorgeous and the engine noise was great. The interior spec seemed much better than the blue demonstrator i had seen before. It surpassed all my expectations and they have promised me a test drive soon.
Also have a look at this
it appeared on ebay.co.uk today. its a mazdasport pack for the rX8 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2440155206&category=23012
do you know anything about this kind of thing, how much would it expect to cost. etc. is it bona fide.
did you also see that someone is trying to sell his RX8 on ebay but it finishes today
greetings to all
