Re: Planted seat base

I’m looking at getting some bucket seats, so the Planted base allows the side mounts to be installed onto it? Gather if adding a sliding base will make it too high?

Also, what do you do with the seat airbag sensor?

Im looking for a short shifter too, apart from Axial flow there seems to be no other option, if this one works then thats a good alternative - test it out Dan!

Re: How does the Honda S2000 compare with the RX-8?

I owned a nearly new AP2 S2000 back in 2005 with the GT hard top and now own an R3. My thoughts echo most of what has been said in previous posts. Looks are subjective, practicality is not comparable as they are just different a category to each other In terms of driving performance (both standard),...

The heating controls are not part of the head unit like the S1. So can just transfer it to the new Metra kit facia. To conclude the install ...

Does anyone know if this exhaust with a decat (resonated) will be ok to get on most track days with a static 100-105dB limit? Or is this setup too loud for that?

HKB boss kit to R3

Has anyone fitted a HKB steering wheel boss kit to an R3? I fitted one to my old S1 without any problems as the kit comes with airbag cancelling resistor, but R3 has cruise control, does that need cancelling and will it throw up a engine light?

More importantly is the spline the same size as an S1?
