Is Mazda speeding up production OR WHAT?

Third boat in January.
HEROIC ACE

She will call Jacksonville tomorrow, and leave for NY the morning after.
ETA NY 01/27 8:30PM

Port workers won't unload her cargo until Monday morning. ONLY 178 Mazdas bound for NY that's as much as they could tell me.

3 BOATS in ONE MONTH... It's getting hard to trace them with so many coming in.

Leo,

Firstly, really sorry 'bout your car - hope it is all fixed up real soon. Down here in NC, it is popular sport whenever we get a little snow and ice. I had a bad experience in a 2001 Jetta a year or two back. Catches you by surprise and makes you wary.

Like everyone else who has a car on order, we are all really grateful for you posting info on the board about shipments.

Any idea when that bad boy left the port in Japan? Trying to work out if mine is on it.

Thanks,

YtC

GOT IT.
HEROIC ACE VOYAGE 29A
She was scheduled to leave on 12/26 but strong winds in the "Inland Sea" delayed her. She left HIROSHIMA on 12/28 @ 10AM

EDIT: And no, her cargo was not loaded on board until the 28th. So your Mazda wasn't rocking like a baby onboard.

LOL! On my last phone call I tried my luck.
"I was wondering if you can give me a copy of her manifest"
"What? We can't do that. We have a contract with Mazda Corp and we cannot disclose that info. We carry nothing but new vehicles"
"Ok thanks."

Lol, I don't know who you claim you are, but it seems like they are comfy with giving you some info. Worth a try for the manifest though.

LOL! No one in particular, just an agent with a Customs Broker. The guy who works the vessel schedules have no clue... no offense. It's the 'traffic' department that is skeptical about disclosing info.

IF anybody is that desperate for info you can give me your VIN# (don't know what's so secretive about it anyway). I can call the traffic department and have them query it to see what vessel your car is on FOR SURE.

Thanks Leo - you are the source.

Wasn't told, but I am glad she is born lol. I guess yours and mine are leaving on the same boat? I don't think two boats would leave within two days.

What did you get her so far?

Oh, I didn't realize you were the one with the shifter bushings. This will be my first manual car so I am not sure what to expect with respect to that. I have driven a friend's stick often so I am not a newbie, plus I have some experience with a crotch rocket.

I'll have to search the forum for the foglights Cosmic got. Do they make remote start for sticks? I read on some thread that the installer refused to install it...

Tint would look sweet on cosmic blue, and also blackmica but front windows are outlawed in MI. :bash:

What I have waiting for mine is Duplicolor Caliper Paint Kit...red!

I think our cars are leaving port 1/25 (EST), and 1/26 Japan time. Makes sense.

Yeah I'm not sure what to expect either, but anything to make the shifter feel more firm is good in my book!

They DO make remote start for sticks, there's a thread in the modifications section on them. Places won't install them due to liability...but I do all my work myself - so no liability there. With the safety features they have, such as only allowing remote start after the proper shutdown sequence has been engaged, I feel pretty comfy with them.

Tint I can't go too crazy with - because i think anything over 50% in VA is illegal, on any windows :( I may try 35% though.

That would certainly make sense as far as when they leave port here vs there :)

It's on topic...our cars are on the Jan boat! :mrgreen:
[/quote]

I think our cars are not on this boat, because this is the boat that left port ~3 weeks ago ...maybe I am wrong. 1 more day! :-D
