Re: Yakushi Show, British Motor Museum 2020 - Saturday 15th August

Can we set a time for the meet up?.. Paul AV tells me he's aiming for 8.30AM..is this reasonable :?:

The R3 has performed faultlessly all week,so the only reason I can see for me not being there is the damn thing going dead..most likely on the M69 :roll:

Re: Yakushi Show, British Motor Museum 2020 - Saturday 15th August

Weekend road testing of over 200 miles,has gone without a hitch,so I'm committed to this event,and really looking forward to it,especially if enough of us can form an 'unofficial' club stand ;)

I had a drive of one of those some years ago and it was really good.
I seem to remember it had some form of driver configuration control where you could alter throttle response etc?
Graham,yes it has 3 modes - normal,wet and dynamic ;)

Re: Alfa Romeo MiTo..the new daily

Back in 2013,the year I bought the R3,I organised an informal pub meet,and Velocity Vinnie showed up in a MiTo..I liked the look of it back then..and remembered it when I was hunting for a new daily ;)

Love that colour - it’s the black with the red fleck right?

Yup..in dull light the car looks a solid black,but catch the light and it appears almost black cherry ;)

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.

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

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 ...
