Pretty much, initial period is 6 months and can be extended to 11 months after which the car has to go back.
Nice choice with the 370Z, is it stock or nismo modified?

There is one in ahmedabad.
The RX-8s come with the rotary engine right?.So without any official presence by Mazda where do these engines get serviced?

Thats right. They do come with rotary engines. Is there a dealer/mechanic who's licensed to work on these engines?
