I have been saving for months to get new tires, brakes, and some other work done on my Mazda RX-8. Yesterday was the day to get the most pressing things fixed.
I purchased four new tires, had brake pads installed on all four wheels and new rotors on the front, and a broken fuel line repaired for a grand total of $2,200. I still need to get a sticky valve fixed but it's another $700 which means that will have to be done another day.
I had Jim Click Mazda on 22nd Street do the work. Since they are a Mazda dealership and it's difficult finding repair shops that have a clue how to work on a rotary engine, I just take it there even though it is likely it costs more.
One surprise benefit: My wallet is much thinner so it doesn't put as much pressure on my right butt cheek.
