Eugh, you don t know the half of it.... Mazda dealer FTL. Independent shops is where its at.

Same reason I feel that CSL times are useless.
but there are rumors that the GTR was running higher boost and race gas and the ZR1 supposedly was on race gas as well.
the times around the ring are starting to be with cars that aren't stock or how you get them on the street.

fyi, my brother hates the service he gets from mazda and most of the time he has to tell the mechanics whats wrong and whats to be replaced and sometimes how to do it.
