Got my stuff yesterday. Plan to install today. [I editied my original entry based on Andy's PM]

On an absolute scale I'd rate these an 8. But from a price/value perspective (OEM cost >2x), speed of delivery. and customer service rotary13b1.com gets a 10+ in my book. All the way baby. Very pleased given I'm very much a bang for the buck type of guy.

FYI one of my strakes has some very minor pitting which one can see upon very close scrutiny. Not enuff to worry about nor bother to try to return/exchange (although Andy had offered to w/o me asking). For what you get for the amount you pay honestly I really can't complain.

Same rating for the front and rear accents. While the finish isn't 100% perfect (i'd say 85%-90% if I had to grade) you can't beat the value. Once installed no one can tell. Some website sells a set of plastic ones painted to match the wheels for the same/similar price but why buy plastic.

Cuff links are pretty cool too. Be amazing if you could create spinning ones like the keychains he sells. Thx for the lil' extras too.

If only I could get A+ results in school & life for all the times I put minimal F level effort (<50%) I'd never complain.

Great job. Buy from this man.

Just thought I'd comment as the website talks about "All products are extremely detailed and perfectly finished... ". But for what you get for the amount you pay honestly you really can't complain.

Thanks for the comments. I've PM'ed you about the minor defect on that strake. If you'd like a replacement, let me know.

Regarding the CuffLinks, look what we got now!! = )


Any and ALL comments on our products are welcomed!

I got my strakes and love 'em. Look sharp on my Whitewater Pearl.

A suggestion: Tie/tape a thin string to the 3mm hex key so if you lose your grip and the key drops inside the fender you can pull it out. It's close quarters inside the fender and if you drop the key it will be difficult to retrieve it.

Anyone drop the hex key? How did you get it out? Maybe your suggestions will help someone who already has had this problem?

My install was painless until I also dropped the hex key. Luckily I found a piece of wire like a coat hanger and I got the key out easily. In the end strakes look fantastic.

Got mine today! Very fast shipping!! Opened a few up to take a look and did notice mild pitting, put nothing to really get concerned about though.

Can't wait to see what they look like on the car!

BTW, that "No Pistons" air freshener is lemony stronngggg!

Strakes Installed!

I received the strakes and installed them over the weekend. They look awesome on my silver 8. Thanks for the group buy, good service, and fast shipping! Any chance for a group buy on the rotary accent set?

Installed strakes and front and rear rotary accents. Everything looks awsome and the price was crazy. I'm not sure what Mazda charges for that stuff in the States but up here it would have cost me 3x as much to go through Mazda.

Looking forward to new products.

Got my this morning. Installed the driver's side already, easy install and they look great. Just a few more screws to take out if you have the factory splash guards.

i'd also be interested in a GB for the rotary accents (or maybe a package deal for all three - strakes, front accent, rear accent).

Got my strakes! Very happy with the quality given the price was way below the market price. Installed it and it looks stunning. By the way, thanks for sending it all the way to the Philippines! Definitely I will be purchasing other things from you in the near future.
