Re: Child Seat

It says its suitable on that honest john thing but I question the validity of that! But it's available from halfords so I'm sure I could get them to test fit it before I bought it too surely? It's got great specifications and safety ratings so I'm leaning heavily to that at the moment. Our other joi...

Re: Child Seat

Child Seat

Well, the time has come when the wife is back at work after the birth of our daughter, and rather than lugging the car seat between cars, I'm looking for a car seat for the rx8 and wondering if anyone has any recommendations? Looking for around the £100 mark and doesn't need to be isofix I just want...

Re: Rx8

Couple of options for in the north east for a reliable compression test and a good rate: 1. Ingleby Autos in Ingleby Barwick (where our meets are held and owns 4 rx8s himself) 2. Matthew Teare in Shildon who is our local RX8 breaker and emergency parts guy hes fixed mine multiple times :) Both would...

Re: Rx8

Meet is usually in Stockton just off the A19. Never a good sign when an ad says it needs plugs and coils though that suggests theres an issue already. Not many autos to choose from either mostly manuals. I'll have a little search now too :) I used to live in the Stockton area . Just let me know whe...

Hi Tom! I'm in the north east too! We're starting to get a good show of members now! If you're worried about compression on an rx8 purchase, theres 2 people that offer compression tests locally. Both would be more than happy to compression test and even look around any car you have in mind :) we wil...

Re: Loss of power 4.5k to 6.5k revs

Someone more knowledgeable will be along in a moment, however that rev range is associated with the second port opening up. Possibly a problem with the fuel injectors being blocked? Fuel injectors were also swapped from the known working engine too, I thought this as well, it's the smell of oil tha...
