Yeah the sizing thing is pretty cool, but the height only goes up to 5'9! Us Americans are taller and I would love to see if I will fit in the RX-8 before I get it. Like a friend of mine once said "it ain't like yer buying a shirt."

Most of these sites were available since last year. But they were all restricted to only their "webmembers". At the time, I thought wouldn't be cool if the rest of RX-8 forums could see this. I'm glad that at least now it's not password protected, but yet itís still in Japanese and not intended for English readers.
As you can see, the Japanese site is quite a bit more technical and contains more content than our English site. It irked me to see this. Who make the decision to "dumb-down" the English site? Is it Mazda Japan or MNAO? Are they being elitist or do they think English readers can't appreciate the materials? Regardless, I think English readers, especially North America, deserve a little more respect.
and thanks goodduck for supplying us with some goodies therewhen we couldn't get to them. its always bothered me since i found (or was directed to) the mazda japan site. there are things marked in english and look like they might be interesting so i click on the link. but when i get to the page it is entirely in japanese. are other japanese sites like this? and i think mazda didn't let the mnao or other countries put some of this content up tomake it more "exclusive" for the japanese customers. but i could be wrong.
