If possible, I would buy the RRP coils up for sale on the forum and put them on.

If you have warranty on the 585s, get the faulty one replaced and sell them on.
We bought them new and RR have said yes to sending them back and they will test them and replace.

Re: d585 coils (or similar) to borrow for test

Be sure to post up you're findings in a new thread and I'm sure it'll get figured out. I didn't really go away. my membership ran out and haven't really posted much si...

Re: d585 coils (or similar) to borrow for test

I'd be suspecting a blocked cat with those symptoms. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk hmmm, i have no cat so my guess would be unlikely, lol. i will go back to the drawing board on trying to find the cause if these symptoms are different from coil failure. my car is completely down on power, if...

Re: Do you see many RX8's?

I have stated to notice a A Red rx8 passes me in the opposite direction daily when I’m on my way to work. So must be local to my unit.
Also spotted a few in my local area parked up. So I see quite a few rx8 around at the moment.

Sams latest find for my car was this satnav case. It’s a little well used by the last owner who had some stickers on it and already cut it for a tablet install of their own. But great for putting my own stamp on it. Though the first thing I managed to do was put a crack into it, which needed fibergl...
