I appreciate your response--I love stick and i am glad I made that choice--but in stop and go traffic in downtown Chicago-it can be a pain in the...
I'm glad to hear that the RX8 AT has good acceleration too.
A few co-workers of mine want an auto sports car/with looks and roominess/ as well as some performance to it.
Most, if not all, of the performance car magazines have only dealt with the Rx8 manual transmission-not the AT.
Thanks again for your response. I guess its up to these people to test drive both the AT and MT and choose which transmission fits their driving expectations.

It has been posted here previously, but I thought I would remind you the 06 RX-8 w/AT is SUPPOSED to come with a little more power (still less than the 6mt car) and a new 6 speed auto tranny.
So if you wanted to get an auto RX-9, I think I would wait for an 06.....
#849 of 903 Shinka Pricing in LA
Sep 21, 2005 (11:07 am)
I just bought a Shinka 6sp MT from Claremont Ford/Mazda last week for $29,000 even in LA. The Shinka, with extra optional packages, had an MSRP of $34,5##. I did not need to haggle because I gave them a price to beat from another dealership. I don't know if they have any left. Browning Auto Group from Cerritos (also in LA) had a few left. They had a ad for $5000 off the sticker price (which includes the $1000 rebate from Mazda if you finance with MAC). So if you live near LA and want to buy a brand new Shinka, check out those two dealerships. Don't bother with the dealership in Alhambra. When I took Browning's offer to them, a sales manager accused me of lying! I even called Browning back and had them repeat their offer over the phone (I held my phone next to the sales manager's ear), he simply said he didn't hear anything. A total jerk...can't do business with this kind of attitude.

#851 of 903 Does anyone know...
Nov 21, 2005 (1:06 pm)
... where the most up to date information on current rebates and incentives can be found? I went to a southern CA Mazda dealer yesterday and he told me about the $5k in current rebates ($3500 cash and additional $1500 for financing with MAC). But this wonderful website still lists $1k and $1.5k as the current rebates.

Mazdausa.com should have all the available rebates listed for your area...except the factory to dealer incentives.
#853 of 903 Incentives in DC Area
Dec 30, 2005 (8:24 am)
I have met with a couple of dealers and have some information on the Virginia, DC-area incentives. There is a $1500 factory to dealer incentive, plus a $1000 incentive to the customer if they finance with Mazda credit. I don't know how the Mazda credit rates are - I would be interested in knowing if they have competitves rates (with good credit) if anyone cares to comment. I was offered $27500 at one dealer for a black, GT, app pkg, spoiler, chaperal seats; and $27700 for the same, but black leather seats and spare tire pkg at another dealer. Ultimately, I passed on both, as I have decided that I need an incredible deal on the 2005, or order a 2006 with the Costco deal of $300 - $500 over invoice, so that would be $2500-$3000 more, but the AT is a 6-spd vs a 4-spd and has 15 extra HP. (I need the AT for DC traffic plus bad knees) If anyone is looking for a 2005, Browns Fairfax and Rosenthal in Tysons are both automatically giving you both incentives.

#856 of 903 good buying experience in Chicago burbs
Feb 27, 2006 (4:38 pm)
Had a great buying experience recently at Naperville Motors. 2005 GT AT for 24,200 (including Mazda rebates). It was their "internet sale price". Basically got for invoice minus Mazda and auto show rebates. Would definitely do business with them again.
