Navigating some lanes around Bromley, saw a tit-grey RX-8 plate FR04GEE parked outside a house! Thought it was someone here, so would knock and invite meself for a cuppa in the pissing weather, but decided against it! :)

I wonder - and this may be purely from lack of knowledge - why the greddy kit is preferred over others? Didnt Mazda Australia use a Garrett ball bearing turbo? Think they boosted output to 375bhp or so... might be totally wrong in this though, mind you. :oops:

Extras included touching up Foxy's nail paint :P (no offence)

Foxy - think the diff is due to location - locations in and around london are costlier than outside. You live in the posh Hemel Hempstead/St Albans area - so costs are higher :)

On paint or plastic - to remove the adhesive gunge, use Olbas oil. Available at boots - and very very effective. Will clear up your runny nose as well alongwith ;)

As AMH said - Acetone/Nail polish remover will melt plastic so cant be good for the air vents.

And that'll be my cue to getting the membership. Looking for options as to what to treat myself to in the new year. Wanted a watch but all the buggers are too big for my thin wrists.

As someone pointed out earlier -

RTFM!!!

As it says in the pdfs attached above. Rev to 4000, hold for 10 seconds, and switch off while at 4000. Keep pedal pressed while engine runs down.

F*55 VR - followed you for about 10+ miles on M11 before you turned off. Told the mrs to give a wave, and she got a huge grin so pretty happy with that! :)

Almost a year old, but this car still puts a smile on my face whenever I take it out - whether to the local tesco, or a longer drive!!! Never ever happened with any of the limited cars I have owned earlier! I have driven it both conservatively (which is good for the fuel economy, but no fun at all),...

I had a corsican friend visit - his family owns a Jaguar and Range rover dealership so he is very very good with cars (having grown up servicing and delivering them) and comfortable with twisties. I let him have the 8 to play with!!! Round the roundabout he went, accelarating until he beeped in 2nd!...

Black parked next to ladybower reservoir (Bamford/Derbyshire). I was on my way up to Derwent - showing the parents around.

on the way back home, wife passed an 06 plate red - the guy seemed in no hurry and was driving sedately all along ;)
