Re: Do you see many RX8's?

I've spotted 4 other rx8 owners in the new town I live in. I've managed to move to a town with loads of rx8s but who's owners aren't on forums.

Re: Engine Survey

Missed this and realise it was back in October! whoop! Car is running again. It's worth noting, for the purposes of this thread at least, that my engine failed due to a snapped intake vacuum hose and not due to wear and tear or anything like that. glad its running again, its no fun when they are of...

You might get away with it if the car was on a Q plate but that has so many other disadvantages, like resale value and insurance.

Re: R3 Recall

I just opened my letter for my S1 and my skin went cold... passenger airbag recall. Can anyone comment on Oxford, Swindon or Basingstoke main dealers please? I like near the Newbury dealer that left my car leaking petrol three times trying to do the fuel recall. I'd rather risk not getting it done ...

I got the recall letter through for my car too, though I'm a little confused as I had a load of recalls done last year and I'm sure airbags were one of them..

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.

I would say if you do research and it’s affordable then yeah cool car choice. What’s expensive for one person is cheap for another. It would be wrong to assume just because it’s a first car you are a college kid living on a part time job. Things I would mention are you Probably didn’t learn to drive...

Re: Bex’s airbrush car! Daily drive- showcar in the making.

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...

Re: Recall for software, plugs and oil cooler lines

They have my car now. They turned up in another rx8 to collect mine and told Sam not to worry as they are use to working on these and have dealt with them often, and have a few at the dealership, so that was some relief. Think I have pestered them enough today, I we will see if I put the lack of org...

Re: Recall for software, plugs and oil cooler lines

I have been dreading this day for weeks. Due to Mazda telling me I have about 5 outstanding recalls on my car I was told the car needed to be booked in with a few days extra time in case it overruns. Which meant I booked it in about 3 weeks ago so that Mazda had enough time to get organised, There’s...
