Why the jaffing heck do you buy a new battery every year?! That's hideously bad for the environment.
What I choose to do with my car has zero to do with your opinion.

I use a battery conditioner during hibernation,but still like to fit a new battery,and the hell with the environment..

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

Pulled the R3 out the garage,spent a couple of hours washing and waxing the gal,fitted a new battery - I fit a new Varta E23 every year - checked and corrected the tyre pressures,as they always lose a bit during hibernation,then took her for a 30 mile run...and fell in love all over again. Been seri...

Re: Airbox Tray.

Having it in just looks tidier than a gaping open space,showing a filthy,and probably rusty,crossmember,as well as the fans.

If you don't particularly like the appearance of the stock plastic item,there's always an anodised one from Essex Rotary..

Re: Hello from a prospective buyer

Adam,I'm just over in Gedling,mate :thumleft: RX8's tend to have a bit of a 'lumpy' idle,which is what you were most likely experiencing. Check the rim itself with the tyre that keeps going down - look for any signs of an impact having been hammered out,both outside and inside the rim. If the owner ...

Re: Free Car Lift, Barbecue and Luke Murdoch.

I have no need of Luke's services,but wouldn't mind the opportunity to get the R3 up on a ramp,to give the underside,plus subframes,suspension arms,etc. a fresh coat of Frost Chassis Black coach paint ;)

None of that messy waxoyl/underseal on this car,dontcha know [-X

Re: Connected battery - blown fuse? Advice required

Isn't the risk of this happening the reason it's usually advised to completely disconnect a battery before charging :?: :-k

Hopefully a new battery will be all that's required..
