She'll soon cool off driving it so much, when she realises how thirsty the RX8 is. Smiles per gallon.

Re: Dealer Service costs and General Information.

Booked in at Mazda Oldham for recall work next week, they want the car for 2 days, I'm assuming there's more to do than just change an airbag then? Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk I had mine done at Oldham. I was very worried about leaving it with them. But, they came up trumps :thumright: Even...

Re: 2 Shades of Grey and Good Compression

I have same problem with colours. I believe that colours have faded on bonnet (aluminium) more than the plastic front end.

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

This is something I want to do. Where'd you get yours from? Got the struts off ebay, search for gas struts 55cm long, they come with m8 and m6 ball bolts. Use the middle nut holding the wing in place, and other end locates at bonnet brackets. There is a square hole you can fasten strut too. :thumri...

Mine used to splutter when using low octane supermarket fuel, plus large numberplate relocated to bottom of front spoiler, which blocks airflow when car is moving quite fast. :thumleft:

X-Men Trim Pieces.

Fitted these today, never seen them before. Top quality chromed steel.
Fitment is superb, think they give lower part of grill a lift. :)
