Sorry, they will find us and kill us if this info is leaked. I've never bought parts without the discount but IIRC its about 30% off dealer.

Figure 25-40% off dealer prices, depending on part.

Yep. Cheaper than Ray but not as easy to work with.

If you're eligible for the discount there's no reason not to get it. Even some consumables like brake pads are available at a discount. Also, as a member you get access to Mazda s-plan pricing should you decide to purchase a new vehicle (non-race cars included).

Just remember you must provide evidence of your participation in some type of motorsports event with yout Mazda to maintain your membership i.e. solo, autocross, gymkhana, rally, road race, at least a couple events a year.

mazda does not have a flat markup, so the amount of the price difference depends on the part.

It is my understanding that the price to the racer is the same price the dealer would pay to Mazda. So yes it is worth it. Only downside is the DE events don't count. So you need to really race (NASA, SCCA) or you can run your car in a couple of local autox events to stay qualified.
