Thanks for all the...

I hope not, it only has 30k miles on it! And no extended warrantee over here in Europe (we use 5W30 over here, which I think didn't cause the engine issues you are seeing in the US).

oh ok. not much variation in regard to the water temp needle, always goes to the middle and never moves afterwards (even when I push the car). It will be probably different on a track though.

Well, I usually keep it ON (it keeps me safe :-) but I should probably try without, in a safe space (not easy to find in Ireland). Should I disable it partially or fully?

I was talking to Mazda UK yesterday, and they are not aware of such extended warranty. Looks like this won't happen in Europe. Could the rotor be manufactured differently in Europe and US?
