    Default New guy from eastern Melbourne - well almost

    Hi All

    My name is Ian and i am from the Knox area in Melbourne.

    Just under 12 months ago i went out and bought a brand new SP25 and my wife bought a Mazda 2.

    Recently her Mazda 2 was written off and to my suprise she turns to me and says "i really want your car, do you want to get that MPS thingy or the RX8 you were talking about"

    So back to the dealer i go and have now ordered my brand new Gen II Luxury in Aluminium - only problem is i have to wait till about mid-end november for it to arrive.

    Look forward to meeting some of you and getting out for a cruise.

    Well that's great news for you. I hope your wife was ok, the mazda 2's a great little cars when it comes to crashes for such a small car hence why we are looking for a mazda 2 for my sister n law. Welcome to the forum mid november will pass quickly....

    Hi Ian.....congrats! Great choice of colour and good to see another Vic Gen 2 ...... I'm sure you'll find it worth the wait

    There are a few of us in and about your area and we catch up from time to time. Prob the next time (unless we have a mini-meet in-between) will be our run to the Heathcote drags on the 24th Oct.

    Even though you're MPS-less at the moment, you can rev up the SP25 and come join us if you like.... we don't bite

    Here's the link to some things we've got coming up: http://www.ozmpsclub.com/forum/club-...er-events.html

    If you start getting withdrawal while waiting for your beastie, more than happy to take you for a spin in mine to ease the waiting pain (though it may just end up making it worse )

    Cheers,

    Dan

    to ozmps
    hope everyone was alright after the crash in the 2, but gaining a MPS sounds like a good trade to me
    mazda really needs to lower their delivery time with these cars... it's pretty bad

    just be careful the first time you plant the foot in the MPS, it's a bit of a power gap from the SP25...

    and if nothing else, you have potential to get a laugh as the new owner of the quickest MPS in aus sends it down the strip

    Well done mate. Don't you love reverse psychology? Good work planting that seed ages ago. It's the best when it's their idea. Looking forward to hearing your first experience.

    Hi and welcome to OZMPSClub.com

    Great choice in vehicle!!! I'd definitely see if you can get to Heathcote. It's about time I went to the drags to see something other than hotted up rear-wheelers or exhaust-less V8 commodores... ewwww

    Hey Ian. My name's Jon, and I'm in Ringwood. Any questions, send me a PM.
    Welcome to the forum/club/family, and I hope to meet up with you on a cruise soon.
    Keep looking at the forum, as there's always something going on in the Eastern side of the bay...

    Welcome to the forum and what a nice wife you have kindly taking the SP25 off your hands so you can get your MPS baby

    what colour is your SP25 ?

    The Vic guys sound like a great bunch so Im sure you will get a lot socially and technically out of this place

    Mid November will be here before you know it then your grin wont leave your face
    Taken my boring, bland, lame Subaru and my fat ass and driven off into the sunset with a smile on my face

    thanks everyone for the welcome...

    looking forward to meeting some of you on a cruise, i have been looking at the forum a bit lately for tips and reviews.

    Blackbetty - the sp25 is a black luxury model.

    Will let you know about coming to heathcote for the drags - all depends on what my roster for work looks like........

    I am hoping that the car arrives early so i can come on the reefton run. Have spent the past years riding and racing motorbikes so i know and love the roads up that way.

    I had to wait 2 months for mine but it's well worth it. I'm a new owner as well, just 6 days of driving so far.

    Welcome ....everyone has been very friendly here with a wealth of great knowledge and advice.

    well went in and spoke to the guys at Ringwood Mazda today.

    Told me that the build date for my car is the 27th of October.......

    so if that works then taking into account shipping ect ect i should have it by the end of november

    kinda sad but it will be worth the wait!!!!

    great to have a quick chat with you today ian
    you said you had a SP25, if you can make it on the 7th of november there is a cruise going on, although, will you be able to stand looking at an aluminium gen 2 MPS?
    there is a couple of crazy ACT/NSW'ers coming down, so it looks like it'll be a big one
