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

Completed the thousand mile drive to work! Now to let rex hibernate over the winter in the garage...

Note, I spent around ten hours driving yesterday(from one side of France to the other and then some) and the car was flawless up and down the mountains. Plenty of fun on the winter tyres!

Re: 300 Mile Club (S1 RX8s) or 325 mile club for S2 RX8s

Strong tailwind perhaps? Normally I can get 200 miles out of 3/4 tank on the European roads at 130kph(81mph), then I get scared and cluck my way to the nearest filling station.

Bit more than a scratch...

What do I need to replace/have repaired here?

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

Dug her out and drove across the UK west to east. Was muchly cold and snowy. Toasty as hell inside though :oops:

Most definitely didn’t do burnouts into and out of every service station car park as well... :^o

I’m up near Minehead and my time off work is super limited but I’d be interested! (The A39 from Porlock to Lynton is a really nice road on a good day)

The last run of the day, and one of only a few I remembered to catch on camera. Overcooking the high speed corner part is a personal highlight :shock:

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

Metra kit fitted and aftermarket HU connected(just about) up to the stock Bose until I find time to get down to JRMOTORWORX for the sweet Kicker system that'll be going in!!! :D

Also finally fitted a little magnet to keep the ashtray lid from flicking shut all the time.

Day off, needed to transport a colleague to work though. 5 minute drive turned into a 45 minute blast up and down the local hill. Had some double beeps as well - how interesting...

Scything through the english countryside on a perfect afternoon to the sound of bond film soundtracks.

Nobody does it better(than the rx8). Literally couldn't have been happier in any other car.

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

AA guy was awesome, we opened the car in about 2 minutes and chatted for a good while after. Of course he has heard of the problems where people don't run th...

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

Locked the keys in the boot. 5 embarrassing calls later and the AA man helped me get in. Spare key was 300 miles away and all the local auto locksmiths were busy.

Plonker.
