I believe Mazda Edinburgh are doing the same on Sat the 11th

Presumably there is one car which is doing the rounds of all the Mazda dealers

I have posted an event for Western, Edinburgh on the 11th and SDM, Falkirk on 12th on our events page for those that are interested.

They will have 2 cars - one on show and another for test drives , but test drives will give priority to those who have preordered.

Plenty of people looking at the cars at SDM Falkirk on Sunday but can't say what the Western turnout was yesterday.
As a MK3.5 PRHT I was impressed with the set up on the MK4 RF.
Now Mr Bank Manager?????????

I had a brief drive in the demo car at SDM this afternoon. Too short a drive to draw any real conclusion, and too cold for roof down, but it was a delight to drive with the roof up.

I was at SDM Falkirk today.

I asked to be taken on a test drive with the hood open on the motorway and closed on way back. It was cold and windy. With hood open I heard wind noise above my head almost like a flag unfurling. It was hard to distinguish other wind noise behind me with the conditions. Coming back with hood closed in was definitely quieter than my MK4.
It's certainly a great looking car but as my mileage under 2,200 and only doing my own short runs now, it's too soon to think about changing - I think
