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

What have I done to my RX8 today. With a heavy heart I've put it up for sale.:( Another RX8 in my little town, not seen one about these parts for years. I wonder if you have seen a silver R3 around? Do you mean Poynton? Not seen a silver one around there but there's one near Cheadle. I've seen a fe...

Re: It had to happen!

In simple terms, you have 12 points brfore you get banned. A slap on the wrist (say 35mph in a 30mph zone) would be £60 and 3 points. Points stayed on your licence for 3 years. Bigger offences = bigger points and over 100mph (in a 70mph zone) used to be where instant bans became likely. No idea how...

Re: It had to happen!

I've admitted the offence....I am not trying to get off with anything except maybe the fine being fair.....I'm resigned to the fact I'll have three points. I just hate parting with my money....especially when they are means testing which I find unreasonable for an offence such as this. I do, however...

Re: It had to happen!

Cool for you. Maybe the circumstances will work in your favour, maybe you'll get a lenient Magistrate. And maybe you and Kopite should retake your theory tests and go on a speed awareness course before you hurt someone. Driving a fast car doesn't give us the right to speed, only that we can . There...

Re: It had to happen!

The irony in your posts and the car you own is hilarious.....and I don't believe you never speed.....I don't believe anybody that claims to be hollier than thou. BTW....what did you do before relying on Cruise Control? Once again, I took what I perceive to be appropriate action and acted in accordan...

Re: It had to happen!

It amazes me how judgemental people can be without knowing the facts. It was NOT a residential area....there was no traffic on the road as it was 0615hrs. In my post I noted that it's my first ever speeding ticket which shows I am not a serial offender and quite alert to my surroundings. Not a bad r...

Re: It had to happen!

I agree that in this case it was almost a fair cop, however it was 06.30 NO traffic & i was just half asleep trundling along to work. There is only one tiny sign (which I didn't notice) & NO speed signs. I just have to hope for a fixed penalty & 3 points. I'm careful of speed 99% of the time, just ...

Joined the rear LED light club. Love 'em :D http://i.imgur.com/8HiXxSK.jpg They look great.....i'd like a pair but I think I'll wait for some to come up cheap.....£250 off ebay is a tad ott imho.

Wish I'd kept the 400. They're probably worth in excess of £25k now and as for the RS500, £60k plus:(
