Big thanx to Fanie (DP) & Louis (WM) for always assisting me with questions from the forum. They always get back @ me no matter how busy they are. I send Fanie a mail regarding engine oils this afternoon & I had a reply that makes sense before close of business. Thanx guys.

Done almost a 1000km since getting it back after 60 000km service a week ago. Fanie, Louis & team once again thank you so much for great service. Minor glitches with new gearbox sorted out now. Thank you for pewrsonal attention & your patience with this pedantic customer & standing by your products & always placing customers first.

I'm still a bit disappointed that it was necessary to replace the gearbox, but Mazda warranty sorted it out. I was really hoping to go to 300 000km without any major "surgery".

I don't know exactly what other tricks you guys had up your sleeve, but the car's performance is much better & suspension noise is sorted. I'm a happy chappy again.

Another fantastic experience at my 50 000km service. I drive 60km one way just to get my car taken care of by the best. Really awesome work!

To Fanie & team thank you for assisting ****CENSORED****. Fetching the car, Mazda engine & GB map update all as a goodwill gesture. He was only charged for WA.

You guys really rock.
