Could this be as simple as a weak battery? If it’s been left for a week or so it may have lost some battery charge thus is turning over slower. If possible, next time you try to start it hook it up to some extra power

Nearly there now! You’ll soon have room for a replacement 😁
I'm pretty sure the amount of RX-8s I come to own isn't about to stop at 2 [-X :giggle:

Re: YF's Sparkling Black R3

If you have the rear of the car jacked up you’ll have space to fit the catback with pipe still attached (and remove the standard one with pipe).

Re: Spirit R

Having a factory produced last of the line RX-8 certainly appeals to me and I think the Spirit R looks great so whilst I would pay a premium for that, no way would I pay the type of premium required to bring one here.

Re: <<<TRACKDAY Thruxton - Monday 14th June SOLD OUT>>>

Oil change and new pads fitted today plus put a set of 18s on with 595s. However, just realised the 90db limit is static which may be an issue as mine tends to be in the 92/93 region.
