Not in Holland, sorry.

What do you need? Is it for warranty purposes?

The engine is the only thing that's not good to blow up... i'd discard that "dealer" as well

We were just having some fun.
You can do your own regular maintenance btw as we all do, it just takes a couple of jack stands and common tools
If the warranty still bothers you simply go to your Mazda dealership.

Seriously guys, the cars way too much money for my mechanical , auto tech skills so i would leave it tpo the experts, however I take it that none of you have had a similar situation here in holland, most mazda authorized workshops are crap, i've tried 3 the largest in my area is out of business, the second largest , now the largest does not have the most confidence inspiring workmanship/ service and the third has politely declined to work on an RX 8.
I'm beginning to get the sense that Mazda has a crappy after sales service network for this model. So I ask again if anyone knows of a good mazda rx8 garage?

I live in the Utrecht-area and have my RX 8 HP served at:

Mazda Doornekamp Leusden
't Koendert 6
3831 RB Leusden
http://www.doornekamp.nl/

It is a medium-size Mazda-dealer with a service-minded owner (with a Classic Ferrari) and a motivated staff.
They have a couple of years experience in the service of a number of Rennies from their clients and unlike most Mazda-dealers in the Netherlands (which have not any experience with Rennies) I have confidence in these guys.
I have a new RX 8 of Apr. 2008 (purchased from a dealer that terminated their Mazda-dealership shortly after my purchase).
I visited Doornekamp, spoke with the owner which was immediately prepared to take over the care/service for my brand new car.
I visited them up till now only 1 time for first serviceinspection and some personal things and was satisfied about their job.

Regards, Ruud
