I currently have D585's fitted that had dwell and mini-map done at RR.
Would I be able to have map removed back to stock to allow straight fit of RRP coils in the future ?
Sure thats fine, assuming you'll want to keep the other features too?

I'll add you to the list :)

Tow Eye/Strap

Can anyone suggest suitable aftermarket replacement towing eye/straps that are correct fitment for S1's.
Looking for something with a bit of bling factor.
Will need at least one fitted for Three Sisters track day in Feb.

Silicon Hoses

Looking to do a bit of engine bay dress up on my S2.
Any recommendations for good quality hoses and breather pipes, apart from the obvious Samco.
I realise not all hoses are of the same quality/grades, so has anyone any experience of other makes ?

Took my R3 to Macklin Motors (Mazda) in Hamilton for airbag recall, work was completed within 2 hours while I waited. Tech (John) seemed to be very clued up on RX8's and even showed me component part he replaced and explained what the issue was. Told him I also had my 231 with various recalls includ...

Tony - Exiled Viking - has the widest experience with lambo kits, as I think he tried two different ones on his (now Chris') car and has helped other member fit theirs.

Lambo/Scissor Door Hinge Kits

I've seen a few members have these kits fitted.
I must admit I like the look of these but would appreciate some advice on fitment/practicality/cost/where to buy.
Also prepared to be slated :D

Re: Vinyl Wrap

3M is good quality stuff and if you tell your supplier what it's for they'll be able to recommend the right quality (cast I believe). Avery is also pretty good. They're both expensive but for the sizes you're looking at it shouldn't add up to much £ in total. There's also something called "air rele...
