Hi, new here!

About to put my order in for my MPS & wondered if any of you got any good deals/free options on one?

I'm PX'ing a 2004 (04) Civic TypeR Metallic with A/C, Mint, 28600 miles. They have offered me £11200 which I thought was a very fair deal.

Any thoughts?

I spoke to my dealership on Monday they said not until beginning February. It all sounds a bit suspicious to me. Neeldub has the photos and yet the dealerships say no we haven't got them yet . Eh ???? Admitted the pictures were outside Mazda UK HQ and they are probably test cars but hey why are the dealers not better informed. ?

Was supposed to test drive one at Vospers in Exeter & arranged our morning off around that & My GF getting some braces fitted. So we first popped down to Central Garages Torbay, where the had one in stock, to show them our car they offered to put trade plates on there & then & give us a quick blast but I turned it down as it only had 5 miles on the clock & I'd rather give the run in demo a good thrashing.

Then on the way home went to Vospers Exeter where we were told that there were none in stock anywhere but could get one mid march. After 20 minutes of waiting they then said that there had been a mistake & the demo wouldn't be here today at all. :mad:

Anyway, dropped Jodie at the dentist & buzzed straight down the M5, AGAIN, to take the Central Garages Torbay up on there test drive offer. I loved it, fantastic build quality inside (I'm a bit used to a few rattles in the TypeR), comfortable & the power in every gear is amazing. Shame I couldn't give it a bit, although I could tell it drove great, but I didn't want to thrash a car I was probably buying!! Got home & we decided we are definitely having it rang them up & agreed a price of £11350 on ours plus a substantial amount of fuel (He wouldn't agree on a full tank) paid £1000 deposit & we pick it up Saturday morning!!! :klavergreg:

Not sure if that's an excited smiley but I am excited.

Oh & I think I've annoyed some of the TypeR forum because I don't like the new Civic & I told them I'm buying an MPS :D

I'm very pleased with it too.

Can't wait till it's run in & then I can really see what all that power can do! Someone on the TypeR Forum had a 1/2 hour test drive in one & really liked it, said the power was amazing!

I will post lots of better pictures soon, inside & out, if anyones interested?!?!
