Invitation to Western Mazda

Saturday 28th April 2012

Western Mazda (Service),
5a Stenhouse Mill Lane,
Edinburgh,
Midlothian,
EH11 3LR


Western Mazda [Service] kindly invited us, the Scottish Fivers and their customers to an event at their service centre.

What a fantastic time we all had. The buffet and drinks were very welcomed and consumed by all. We all were like a bunch of kids asking each other the answers to the MX5 quiz so that we could win the £200 vouchers.

Lots of people took the opportunity to receive a free health check and were delighted with the outcome. We received a tour of the workshop and service facilities. I must say that the place was immaculate. I know this is a woman’s thing but, if that is their standard of cleanliness then I know that my car will be well looked after in their hands. Many visitors took up the offer of the discounts off the day and I think that we raided their accessories display. (I have my raffle prizes for the next few runs and a gorgeous teddy for the Gathering raffle.)

 
 


A big thank you to all the staff who took the time to mingle and answer all our questions, I do not want to mention names in case I leave out anyone.

All in all it was a very positive and instructive day and hope that this is will be the beginning of a good relationship with Western Mazda and the MX-5 club.

Thanks all for a great day out. Chuffed to the “gutties” with the dent removal job on the bonnet.
The guy is a magician. If anyone wants his contact details send me a PM and I will pass them on.
Hope to join an outing as soon as I get rid of this trapped nerve in my neck. Charlie

Hey everyone, got a huge favour to ask, the mazda garage have lost our key, they think it may have fallen out of the valeters pocket and into another car, could you have a wee look in your cars to see if its there please? Thats what the delay was in getting our car back. We have 1 of their 12 plate mx-5's at the moment until they can either get us another key cut when we drop off the spare or if they find it or again if its handed into their garage. Thanks in adavnce for having a wee look :)

A very useful afternoon out. Many thanks to the good folk who witnessed the door damage incident and to Alex from dentcentral for being able to fix it. You also did a brilliant repair to Charlie's bonnet too.

Just like to add my thanks and that of my fellow Scottish Fivers to Western Mazda for their invite to their open day. Their facilities are very impressive as was the buffet and refreshments. Their staff are well informed, very helpful and reassuring.
Was really lovely to meet some more fellow 5 owners too.
Hubby had 2 of his wheels refurbished on site and he is very pleased with the results.
The dent repairs were excellent.
We got a fair few bargains too that we are very happy with.
Both our cars got clean bills of health and a spruce up inside and out.
To top it all, we had the most gorgeous weather too.
Well done to Western Mazda, brill day.
Karen & Iain

A huge thank-you to Wesrern Mazda for the invitation to yesterdays event, and hope this is something tand at ahat can be repeated on an annual basis. Was nice to meet a few of the other like minded people, who obviously take much pride in their MX5s, and made the effort to come along. Had a new windstop fitted, with a huge discount, so thx also to the parts dept.

We got our MX5 back from western mazda this morning looking lovely and shiney, along with a lovely bunch of flowers in it for the inconvenience caused last week. Thanks to Ian and Jacqueline for finding our key for us and also western mazda for making the error easier to get sorted and not leaving us without transport whilst ours was away.

Thanks Western Mazda (Scott) for the invite to what turned out to be an excellent event. Typical Mazda, well organised and very informative and you even managed to get the weather on side.
A huge thanks must go to Kevin of Absolute Alloys, you made me a happy boy getting the kerbed wheels fixed.
Also a massive thanks to Iain Burt for sorting me out with bargain of the year. Even the wife appreciated that one.
I will be visiting your facilities again for all our Mazda needs.

See you in July 2013 Scott.
