Re: I Saw You Today At ......

Saw a 56 plate VR RX8 parked outside the Dacia dealership in Corfe Mullen on the way to work.

Re: Is the RX-9 going to happen?

I’ve also read that the Mk2 BRZ/GT86 has got around 250ish bhp. I might be wrong though.

Re: Is the RX-9 going to happen?

£50+k? Is this a repeat of the RX7 FD? Overpriced and underpowered?

Although I did read somewhere (don’t quote me) that it might push out 400-ish bhp.

If you go to a slightly lower profile tyre, you could probably get rid of the rubbing issue! Nope for the ARBs! I’m looking at 235/40s, I’m running stock tyre size at the moment.

Re: Eibach Pro-Kit with standard dampers

Definitely keep me posted. If you don't mind me asking, why are you going back to just the lowering springs? Just coilovers aren’t for me, where I park my car at home is down an awkward camber and the wheels rub the arches a smidge, I’m not tracking the car so I don’t see the point in having them f...

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

Got some nice ‘3D’ sticky badges from someone on Facebook. Fitted them today, not to be bias but they look so much better than the OG badges. Image

Re: I Got One!!

The possibilities are endless!

My drivers door is a ‘darker’ red and the front bumper is more orange than the rest of the car. [emoji23]

But anyhoo! The car looks tidy and the colour choice is the best. End of discussion. [emoji6]

Re: I Got One!!

Investing in another VR bootlid could lead to colour missmatch since VR suffers from usual red paint issues! Yeeeaaahh, I know that all too well unfortunately. [emoji17] It could be used for practicing to get fitment though. [emoji2369] Or go black like some VR RX8s I’ve seen. Sent from my iPhone u...

Oooh… yours looks nice! :D I like the spoiler too! are they easy enough to fit? I cheated, I have a family friend who works in a body shop, they fitted it!
