Hey Charlie, purchased mine at Murray Mazda of all places. I configured one online and they were the first to call. Overall a pretty painless experience.

I am generally driving between Happy Valley and NW Portland so I will keep an eye out.

Hey Im Ducky,

I just picked up my 04 in Kirkland... total noob....

Anyways, im still figuring out what all this has because the dealer didnt know too much about its features...

I think it has HID, no power seats, no sunroof, a button im assuming for disabling traction control... no NAV.

Anyways I hope to see you all sometime or even talk to you....

My first impression... its just gorgeous... looking at the dash... im just in awe...

Pics soon!

Others may be alittle faster, but as a non prof. driver the few tenths of a second difference mean nothing to me. I was beaten of the line by a guy who rallied his VR6 when I was in an M3, it wasn't until the first "s" bends that I left him standing. He was just a better driver.You will not have that problem with this car, its handling is Porsche like.
I would love to hear from anyone else in the Northwest 8 Forum about their experience to date with the car.
I certainly will be looking at any potential upgrade to the car, but not because I think its "weak" but just because it can be done. K&N air filter sounds interesting at 16hp more, but I think a remapping may be all I ever do.

Having some fun with it now though


ive got the k&N typhoon. its a nice upgrade for the price. and the sound is perfect.

Hi,

Add me to the head count: Red MT, Grand Touring.. nothing else yet. I picked it up at U Mazda last week, they did well, I would recommend them. Still restraining myself through break-in.

hi all

I figure I should say hello to everyone.
I got my 04 BB base 6sp at HM in Beaverton last March...
I love this car....but it really is a driver's car. I spun out once and I was lucky i didn't hit anything, except had few bad curb rash. Still learning the characteristics of this car...this also is my 1st RWD car so....
After while, I would like to try to autox, but not for a while.
I am ordering Greddy sp2 this week, and working my way to the veilside kit(the ver1 one...looks very subtle)
So glad to be here and be a part of the exclusive NW 8 owner's club! :D


BTW, come to Sushiland in Vancouver! lol
free advertizing.... :o

I'm also new to the club around here, just picked up my 8 last thursday. Nordic Green with grand touring package, 6spd, and everything else i guess. So far I love everything about the car. Like some other people, I also moved up here from Chandler, AZ about a year ago...

I Picked up a used 2004 Ti Grey GT / Spoiler from Doug's Mazda two weeks ago. Only had 5,000 miles on it! I live up in Lake Forest Park, WA just north of Seattle proper.

Moving "up" from a 1991 Eagle Talon TSi AWD with tons of mods and only 75K miles. Just gave that car to my younger brother.

Hoping to do some road courses in the RX8 as I'm a total handling snob. Last time I was at Pacific Raceways I left in an ambulance though when I departed the track on my motorcycle at a good rate of speed. I now have titanium in my wrist to match the color of my car I'm going to stick with 4 wheels for a little while.

Hope to see some of you around!
