Re: Special Edition Register additions.

I don`t know as one of the other 40th owners had a complete dealers list which I have got which was comprehensive enough to show which car by VIN was allied to the build numbers, we only have 34 out of 500 for the Kuro register unless Dave can do something with it.

Re: Special Edition Register additions.

Part of the 400 40th Build numbers and allocated VIN`s if that makes sense, between 001 and 400 Build numbers there is a difference of 947 VIN`s. 001 = 149558 005 = 149562 ----- 5 off 006 = 149574 009 = 149577 ----- 4 off 010 = 149591 017 = 149598 ----- 8 off 018 = 149611 022 = 149615 ----- 5 off 02...

Re: Special Edition Register additions.

I have already checked the VIN`s for the 40th Anniversary which have varying gaps compared to the 1- 400 build numbers so I would assume the other special editions are the same.

Latest advice to EV owners due to the recent high temps - keep the car in the shade and don't exceed 80% on a charge as batteries don't like the heat! #-o

Re: New member looking to buy....Hi!

:welcome:
Having owned several RX7`s I should imagine you realise this is the place to find a decent RX-8, also there is an endless amount of knowledge available for paid up club members - the buyers guide is helpful and good luck with your search.

A lot of people had already commented that the car looks really cool and that you don't see many around nowadays (there are only 800 192s left!),
:welcome:
That would be somewhat of a conservative figure, there are approx` 2,700 still in existence.

Re: New Car Ordered

Just out of curiosity will it arrive with a speed limiter fitted now that the EU has decreed all new cars have to have them - a Porsche with a speed limiter seems a bit at odds with what a Porsche is.
