I’ve got a spare one if you want it.
£20 posted?
Thanks for the offer, the spare gearbox is from my first Rex that had serious issues with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, I doubt I'll be using it for anything more than a garden ornament ;)

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

Replaced my gear lever, luckily I have a spare gearbox out in the garden (as you do). I was driving down the motorway yesterday, attempted to shift to sixth, and got a very horrible crunchy sounding attempt at reverse :shock: It would appear that my gear lever was stuck in the press down mode. At fi...

Certainly not going to miss you in a convoy, keeping up with you might be an issue [emoji23].

Re: Reloy's Winning Blue 231 - Light mods

I got the vent pod from a group buy years ago, I think it was from Block8head Custom Vent Pods, they have a Website, and Facebook page. The gauges are Dragon, about the cheapest you can find on ebay.

Probably not, Rachel lives with her mum, so we're kind of shielding still.

Fitted my vent pod gauges this morning. Still the cheapest gauges money can buy, but they work. Image

Fitted new gaskets to the rear lights, and the sandwich plate for the oil temp and pressure guages (fitting those is the next job).

Re: Reloy's Winning Blue 231 - Light mods

I purchased Rex on Sunday 11th August 2013, and almost exactly seven years to the day on Sunday 9th August 2020, it was written off whilst minding it's own business, happily parked opposite the house. They stopped and exchanged details etc, so that's sorted. Well he's just been taken away, having pu...

It has possibly just snapped or bent the steering rack tie rods and or arms. If so then I have. Steering rack and arms just taking up space.
Thanks for the offers Chris, but it looks pretty terminal. I may go for a colour change 8)

Looks like we won't be with you next weekend, someone has just hit my car.

Re: New safety recall notice - fuel tank

Just booked mine into Wessex Mazda Bristol for its recalls next Wednesday, sounds like they've had a bit of practice now. Passenger Airbag, Drivers Airbag, Fuel Tank, Lower Arm Ball Joint, and a fifth one I didn't know about.
