Re: LED lights - Legal?

As has been said forget LED bulbs I have tried several and they give a bright white light but the intensity is pitiful in dipped and main beams even compared to Ye Olde Halogen bulbs, the only way to improve lighting is with an HID kit and in the 190 bhp car it is a good improvement and due to the P...

Re: Finally got my rx8

If you use the RRP coils most use the better Magnecor leads and as the lead connectors are the same as the OE Mazda leads you can also re-fit OE coils if you need to, D585 coils use different leads.

Re: Underseal/Waxoyl

There used to be quite a few much regarded rust proofing companies like Zeibart in the UK but then they died out when the car industry started to make cars that didn`t rust. =D> :^o #-o
That didn`t last did it! :-k

    If you don`t start RX-8 ownership with a decently sorted example then expect trouble, you have a 14 year old car on 74K miles and you say "The coils, plugs and leads look very old and it hasn't had the starter upgrade" so there is bound to be problems isn`t there. I bought a 20 year old Porsche 911 ...

    That would be JDM BHP, so more like 260-320 in our money, as they define/measure differently

    Our 231 = 250 JDM
    Our 192 = 210 JDM
    With the reported use of plastics/carbon fibre light weight body/chassis parts etc then those figures would be acceptable. :thumleft:
