We received our Winning Blue RX-8 in Pensacola, Florida (Sandy Sansing Mazda) on July 14th, at about 6PM CDT. It arrived on the truck at about 4PM. The dealership received 2 RX-8s, our Winning Blue and a Yellow. They were both fantastic looking cars. Both were presold, and we left the dealership about the same time as the other buyer.
We were able to see our car on the truck here in Fort Walton Beach at about 2PM, and the wait while the car was in transit to Pensacola was agonizing! Too bad we couldn't talk the truck driver into letting us go ahead and drive the car to Pensacola ourselves.
Here was the car history:
Ordered March 2003
Build Date 5/23/03
Winning Blue, MT, GT only, no port options
As posted in another thread titled "TJRX8 Got his!" Yes TJRX8 did get his...car that is.
Showed up Friday around 5:15PM. I saw it at 5:50 and test drove it around 6:30. Picked it up the next day around 2 and am loving every minute of it.
When are we getting together? Orlando or Tampa would be good central locales for the Florida gang. How 'bout it?

Salesman bought the yellow one. Others are sitting outside as of today 7/28.
Originally posted by RX-8 Zoomster It's here. My wife picked it up today. They still need to add the MP3, exhaust finishers, and fender strakes.
COOL! Congrats Mark.
I was just up there Friday night and they said they hadn't seen one with the App Pkg. They were checking mine out. I guess they saw two now. I was going to tell you that Brandon got a red one in Saturday also, it's exactly like yours. That color is really nice, the red looks darker in person almost candy apple.
You must be chompin at the bit now to get home.

Yes, I'm suffering. I'm pretty anxious to get home now. Not too much longer.
Check out my "Feel my suffering...." thread on the RX-8 Multimedia/Photo Gallery section for more pics. Since the car came in so quick, they didn't have the other parts, (strakes, exhaust finisher, MP3 player) ready to install. The wife will have to go back Thursday, and they'll install the rest. I'll post some pics with the added accessories later.
I found out they DID have the parts. They told my wife that they didn't have time to install them today, even though the salesman promised over the weekend that everything was to be completed by Monday. Well I called the Sales Manager long distance, and told him I was HIGHLY disappointed because his salesperson promised us the car today, and there is no excuse why my wife has to bring it back on Thursday to have the accessories installed. Well, he authorized a service tech to work overtime, and they installed all the accessories (strakes, exhaust finishers and MP3 player). See what a little "bitchin" can do. Anyway, everything is installed. I'll have the wife take some "updated" pics that show the strakes and exhaust finishers.
