Mazda must take pride in making it difficult to check the oil in a rotary...my rx-7 dipstick is in the same place as the 8 and is a total *itch to get to...I guess WE should take pride in our battle scars!!
I bought mine on 9/5/03 so I'm not sure if it is a later build or not, but the oil is relativly easy to get at, much easier than my '82 Camaro. Never take off the cover unless it's to clean it or put oil in. 4,400 and put 2 quarts in. I drive pretty hard, especially after 1st 2,000.
