Re: And So It Begins ...

Argh - maybe I’m lucky that my dealer didn’t dare charge me for 10 minute investigation.

Front doors?

Correct - front doors, rear doors then boot hatch.

Strange as the doors still sheeted up nicely after a wash but clearly had accumulated a lot of crud.

Re: Cleaning after 6 months / 13k miles

How do those clay mitts compare?

Do you have to renew the clay or buy a new one?

Re: 3 Yr Service Plan Cost.

Why bother with rip off main dealer plans Mazda service records can be updated by your local garage by registering with Mazda Legally as long as Mazda parts etc are used they HAVE to honour warranty claims Why succumb to blackmail ?

My first service will be less than half the price of Mazda and the second one about a third of the price.
