Welcome. I am also a TTC 225 owner looking for more space in the back. Once you have settled in I imagine you may have a few questions regarding the turbo versus rotary performance. Much has been coverered already (primarily through my questions) and a search of past threads will lead you there. Alternatively there is some good experience on this site and most you will find friendly.

Hi pwr, Tit grey, leather, EP 021
Thanks folks. I have previously had Mx-5's and always been pleased with relaibility and dealers.
I love the TT, and they way it looks, but they are starting to be a bit too common these days! Performance-wise I find it spot on, my only real complaint being the lack of decent sound-track. I might have been tempted by the new V6 if it werent over 30k, and auto (DSG) only..
I was always a fan of the RX-7 but was put off by the engine reliability and the fuel consumption. I am slightly worried about fuel consumption - I have got 29 out of the TT in 10,000 miles without trying.
I am confident that the reliability will be ok, and since I have no plans to keep the car after warranty this doesnt concern me.
I expect the car to feel less torquey (is that a word?!) than the TT, and more S2000 in performance delivery, but given that it wont sound thrashy I dont mind this.
The pic below nailed the colour choice for me. I felt red a bit too flashy (in london) and am not a fan of silver or titanium. I may have gone for green if it had been available from day one.
Originally posted by J8NTS Only spoke with my dealer last week. He told me if I pre-order now I can expect delivery late '03, but more likely early '04. Anybody else heard this?
It's hard to believe that anyone, including dealers, actually knows anything about deliveries. Mazda UK sure as hell are reticent about passing that kind of information on to us poor punters. I'd be sceptical about any such comment regardless of it's probability.

Secondly, I'm baffled by all this talk of delivery dates. The yanks are going mad on the main forum as they now believe their cars won't arrive until July/August. As they were supposed to be May/June, where does that put ours!
We'll have to see. I hope it's worth the wait!!
