Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

I'm more or less decided that the RB kit is really the only option.
It's better, a lot cheaper on the whole, and it's specific to the R3. Peace of mind..

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Looks like the RB is really the only option unless I can get some knocked up. Will see if I can get some specs over the weekend.

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

As just the bits I know I need to replace look likely to cost around £230, I'm thinking about changing all the cooler lines. :-k Just started looking at what kits are available out there, not too much so far, but I did find this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264523739727 The problem is, the descriptio...

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Cheers Ian. :) Seems like these parts may be difficult to source outside of Mazda though. I've emailed the usual parts guy from Mazda to see how much hurt they can conjure up for me. Aiming to get it off tomorrow and see if I can spec what's required and look at having something made up. It's a righ...

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Finally able to get it on an AS, and take off some plastics. Looks like a case of oil cooler line I think:

So I'll see how many arms and legs it will cost to get an OEM replacement, and also look at other any options I can find too. Any suggestions are always welcome. :D

Cheers Ian, pretty sure it's cooler lines, but you never know until you've checked!

Hoping the R3 thing doesn't cause some issue, part numbers are different.. :-k

Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

Well after a fairly uneventful 2019 after the injector incident, and fitting the Pettit, 2020 appears to have started with a pretty serious oil leak.. Having literally just parked at home, I got a bleeping, flashing oil indicator. Evidence of oil leakage on the drive, and in the engine bay, though u...

Re: Phone holder

I have one of these: https://www.iottie.com/Product/Detail/5 ... ield-Mount

It's a bit hefty on price, but I got fed up with ones that fell off etc.

Works very well though, I use it right down the bottom left of the windscreen, but can be dash mounted.

It would be epic if you did this! 8)

If you've not seen The Long Way Round, it's worth a watch to see what some of the journey could be like. The Road of Bones was a shocker!

Delighted to hear you were able to make good use of the track day slot Haydn, I had wondered all day yesterday if you'd been allowed in ok!

Despite some 'difficulties', it seems you were all able to make it a great day anyway.

Probably way too late, but if anyone wants to go along to this, you can use my space for nowt.
