Re: JayEmm on Cars YT RX8 Review

I bought my first RX-8 new I looked at and test drove both versions and didn`t find a great deal of difference in performance but I wanted a car in Black with Black & Red leather interior and I could afford a 230 bhp car with cloth or a 190 with the leather so that is what I bought and never regrett...

Re: JayEmm on Cars YT RX8 Review

So in researching the RX-8 the best he could find was a written off PZ due to a "Big dent" a 2+2 (or 3) that has useless back seats, looks strange, drinks fuel and oil, has warped brake discs and has soft suspension (at 13 years old?) a pity it wasn`t raining no doubt he would have discovered just h...

Re: Another cat stolen.

They must be jacking the car up - all hell is let loose if you jack my daughters Mini Cooper without disarming the alarm first #-o :oops: so we need some clever bod to come up with a simple addition/modification to the RX-8 set up.

Hey Del, how quickly do your HIDs fire-up?

It is literally a few seconds before they power up fully using Bosch Ballast`s which might be a problem if the dipped beam extinguished when switching due to that slight pause but with the HID dipped beam on its not a problem.

I have recently bought a 40th anniversary in white however it looks as though Mazda could not be bothered to put any numbering on it, is there any way I can find out the number? 001 - 400 on numbered plaques were allocated for the 40th Anniversary edition when I took delivery of mine the sill plate...

Mine has passed on an MOT with HID main beams for 8 years now probably because the car complies with headlight Auto levelling and washers.

Re: R3 Bulbs

Just change to a H9 6000K HID kit for the best light output also replace the dipped beam D2S bulb with a 6000K just gives a slight tinge of blue.

Re: LED lights - Legal?

Forget LED bulbs they are hopeless as replacements for dipped/main beams, HID lamps (Xenons) are good replacements for H7 Halogen bulbs but you need H7R bulbs in an open reflector or a H7 HID will work OK in the RX-8 projector lenses never had a problem with either of these. Have had H9 HID`s in the...

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.

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
