customer feedback

1985 Caterham Super 7

The Caterham arrived in Canberra today! It is pretty well as expected, the photos did a good job of revealing the condition accurately. Apart from an interminable wait on the wharf for the thing to be cleaned, it was all quite smooth.

Thank you for your part in this, all the paperwork was handled well and you managed to get the seller to move on it when it started to appear he wasn't all that bothered.

Mazda Roadster Coupe (NB8C series)

In 2003 Mazda released what was to be one of the rarest cars ever in their sports car lineup. They took the popular Mazda Roadster (called the MX-5 in Australia, and Miata in other markets) and made a hardtop coupe version. Developed in conjunction with Mazda E&T (Engineering and Technology), a mere 179 models were produced, of which only around 100 are eligible for import. This makes for a highly sought after and rare car, but they can be found.

The Roadster coupe is often favoured amongst people using them for motorsport use, the metal roof adds significant chassis rigidity and reduced drag with only an additional 10kg of weight. Importable models come with the BP 1.8L 118kW (160hp) engine and close ratio 6 speed manual gearbox, and weigh 1,110kg. ABS brakes, dual airbags, LSD and electronic brake distribution are standard, and the coupe versions were manufacured from late 2003 to mid 2004.
