For the antenna thing: Mazda Canada and Mazda USA each have their own model year designations. USA 2003 Mz6's have the window antenna; the same car was called a 2004 in Canada. 2004's in the USA switched to the mast antenna. In Canada, these cars were called..... 2004. So, for Canadian cars, a "2004" could mean one of two model years. I believe that things match up for 2005+ models.
Oh, and the touchup paint. When I bought paint for my car, they gave me the wrong colour at Sunridge -- that wonderful parts guy again. I knew because I was expecting them to screw this up, and they did. I'd double check the paint code (on the driver's door jamb) BEFORE actually touching anything up .... otherwise your car might look like it's got a bad case of acne.
Last note: Jerry @ Sunridge is pretty good. Unfortunatley, I hear he's leaving. Henk is supposed to be his replacement, and we'll see how that goes. I would try North Hill, but I'd prefer not to -- because their lot is so small, I know that my car would be quadruple parked there, and the lot boys will be moving it several times per day. You know that eventually, you are going to get a ding or curb rash from all the parking / reparking. Otherwise, I hear NH is not bad for service.
