Re: New Product- Gauge Panel (and possibly kit)

Quite tempted by this, will keep an eye on it and see what the funding situation is like when you release it.

Re: Metra kit, anything better?

The metra kit in mine wound me up so much I pulled it all out and put a standard Bose back in, I'd like a nice Android Auto double din HU in the car but having HVAC controls that were a bit hit and miss annoyed me more than the lack of a modern HU. I've gone for one of the bluetooth Grom BT3 boxes a...

Re: Free Car Lift, Barbecue - Saturday 26th October from 8.30am

Yes it's done about 500 miles :/

Taken the wheel off and pulled it out and it's a tiny hole which from my measurements is inside the repairable area but we'll see what the garage says on Monday!

Re: Zippy's Copper Red Evolve.

I decided I didn’t like the visibility of the Evolve mirrors, and bought some stock ones to replace them. Finding a set in the copper red was a bit tricky, so a pre- carbon vinyled set was purchased, and then at some point I may get round to getting some covers in the correct colour. https://live.s...

I've got a replacement EGR solenoid to fit, no worries if there isn't time but I'll bring it along anyway.

Re: Radiator Hose Size

Yeah I'll measure when I'm next at the car, was just being impatient :)

That's the type I was going to go for, I'd found these - https://www.westfieldfasteners.co.uk/Ho ... ra-W4.html

They are silicon hoses yes, the originals had gone all crumbly so had to go.

Radiator Hose Size

Hi, I'm away for work at the moment so doing a lot of pondering and googling, I can't find the diameter of the radiator hoses (main upper and lower ones) - Looking for the outside diameter to know what size clamps you need, I don't like the clamps the replacement hoses came with so it's on my list o...

Re: Shropshire / West Midlands Meet - Friday 13th September - **7pm**

I'm 99% certain I won't be able to make the meal at the next one, got some family stuff on.

Will do my best to show my face though so don't put me down for the meal and I'll show up for a pint (of something non alcoholic) if I can!

I was after doing some rust protection but I don't live far from Rob so no need for me to take up ramp time with that. I'm free that day though so suspect I'll pop along!

Re: Does the RX8 need XL tyres?

I've just fitted 235/40/18 Pilot Sport 4s (believe they are XL) and they feel brilliant to me (I am by no means a tyre expert!) - The old tyres were 245/40/18, and felt terrible but as I say, no expert and I think is more down to the old ones being mismatched budget tyres.

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Got the Pilot Sport 4s fitted, took it for a spirited drive home to scrub them in. It's like a different car after the mismatched Chinese tyres.
