Just ordered 2.2d[185] Sport in Black Mica
« on: August 14, 2010, 07:44:03 PM »
After hours spent slogging around the showrooms in the last few weeks, test-driving all sorts, I finally let my heart over-rule my head and placed an order for a 2.2d[185] sport in Black Mica.

Just got to wait out until the 6th September.

Trading in an 02 plate Laguna 2.2dci which is a dream to drive, but recent repair bills and reliability (and major issues with the local dealer) have made me move on to something new.  Hopefully I'll enjoy the Mazda as much as the Laguna.

Checked with the dealer and it might be ready on the 6th.  For some reason Mazda has moved the delivery date to the dealer to the 6th, but they think that's a mistake. ::)

Tried to call the salesman twice today to confirm the car will be ready on the 6th, but he was "busy" with customers and would call back.  Did get one attempted call back but when I answered the line went dead.

Not impressed. >:(

Much happier today, dealer called and car arrives tomorrow and will be ready for hand-over at 2:30.  I'll spend the rest of today clearing out and saying goodbye to my trade-in. :(

Reminded the dealer again (just as well as he had forgotten) that they aren't to do any exterior prep except a run with the pressure washer, as I'm putting the car into Polished Bliss next week for an all surface protection detail.  If there are any dealer induced swirl marks on the paint I won't be happy, hopefully they'll follow instructions. :-\

Woohoo, picked the car up today and it is fantastic. ;D ;D  Even 19yr old son agreed it was good (after tearing him away from the 3 MPS and RX8 in the showroom).

Just done my first wash (just a rinse with the power washer) and when spaying the wheel arches I couldn't believe my eyes at the liners on the rear wheel arches.  Instead of the normal (to me) plastic liner, they appear to be some form of fibre board (grey in colour).  Is this correct?
