Default Arlington/Rosenthal Mazda Out of Business???

I was just about to order a bunch of little stuff (spindle nuts, diff seals, etc...) from Arlington Mazda, but it looks like they've closed up shop... Seems like they were the best (or at least most commonly recommended) online supplier of OEM parts. Anybody have any other recommendations? It looks like onlinemazdaparts.com has what I need, but their website kinda sucks...

I just used Jim Ellis Mazda for some bolts and spindle nuts, but I used to just walk over to Rosenthal from home :(

It's gone, I'm gone, but I just landed at Priority Nissan Mazda in Tysons Corner Virginia.

They want a web site so we're going to build one. Timeline is ASAP for Mazda,
then Nissan will follow. I'm working with their I.T. guys to find the right solution
and I start on Monday the 2nd. Once the phone numbers are established we'll post them here.

We plan to continue our sponsorship of the Miata forum and support the Miata community.

Thanks for your patience!

Dang, they were a good online supplier. I'm glad my order shipped last week for essential random motor parts and bolts!

After doing some reading on m.net, it looks like the guy that was in charge of Arlington Mazda's parts department is working on a similar website for his new employer (Priority Mazda?), so hopefully everything will work out in a couple weeks. In the mean time, I guess I'll get my diff seals elsewhere...

Tommy is moving to a different rosenthal in Tyson's and will reopen the shop.


Land is too $$$$$ in the area for it to be wasted on car lots. the chevy dealer next door sold out 5-6 years ago; it was only a matter of time.

Last few times I've ordered factory Mazda parts I've used Parts.com. Seems like most of the parts I ordered actually came from Rosenthal but I think the prices were actually a little better. Worth looking at. I've had good luck with them.

If you compete in at least two timed events per year (autocross included) you can apply for a mazdaspeed account.

Mazdaspeed is nice, but Rosenthal had parts to me in 2 days which was amazing. I almost shed a tear on Saturday night when I walked by Rosenthal for the last time. I really should have walked over and asked how much discount on the black ND they had there.

Oh snap, I'd have bought you a beer had I known you'd be around physically and not in Internet form

Braineack, Y8s, and I got Big Bun Saturday night before heading to MD to see NoFX. I meant to shoot you a pm about meeting up and handing over the additional hanger. I just sort of ran out of free time.

i have used mazda-parts-dealer.com and coincidentally they are also in northern Virginia. they might even be the aforementioned "other rosenthal", but I'm not sure. It has been a while.

Problem is they cant generate a shipping lable for less than $12 dollars. Or so they told me when I asked if they wanted two random spark plugs they sent me instead of oil filters back.
