Two reds, both in Kelso. Didn't get the one I saw in the town on the roundabout from the bridge, but the other one I have seen a few times - K1 TCJ.

Friday, saw a black one with chrome wheels on the M6 - I've forgotten the cherished plate on it. It had a chrome filler flap, but no strakes!

Went from Carlisle to Kendal-ish, IIRC.

Saw a few around; I keep seeing one with a private plate like N111 K something in Birmingham around Erdington area :D

Heading to London last weekend (9-11 Feb), saw a grey one on a petrol forecourt and shouted "Nice car!" at the owner as I was busy filling mine...

He looked nervous.

And saw a blue one in the garage when my cat was getting done - xx04 HPC in Border Cars :D

Copper Red Evolve in B&Q car park last night. I wasn't in the RX8, I was driving my current shameful banger - £650worth of 1999 Astra TD estate (it's so basic, it doesn't even have central locking).

Saw a filthy Phantom Blue evolve on the M6/M5 area yesterday heading South. Passed it, we both undertook some MLOC idiots, and then I think I went a different direction (heading for Cheltenham). And I can't say much for the filthy other than "I thought it was grey" - my car looks awful after doing 8...

Shopping there makes it possible to afford a Bentley?

Anyway, mid 80s Bentley Eight/Mulsannes are about £8-15K now.

I'm wondering if I can ask my dealer to offset the list price of the new alloys against the chrome ones... and if possible, how much the chrome ones would cost me! I really, really want the chrome wheels on my car. I suspect I'm a bit sad. Anyway, my dealer noticed the (very slight) corrosion on my ...

Anyone really keen on DIY... Could anyone with a 10.01 Firmware head unit who knows how to remove it and doesn't mind opening it please check this: http://sol20.com/ATENZA/maz_L716_E.htm It seems unlikely to me, but there's a chance - due to the fire, stocking and so forth - that our 2005-built RX8s...

Absolutely filthy silver Hi-Power (looked like Xenons, when far enough off my arse that I could see the lights ;) ) "PX53" on the A7 Carlisle to Edinburgh, at Longtown. Tailgated, passed two cars ahead on a blind bend, exceeded 30mph limit in Longtown, seemed up for a decent blast when I caught up p...

I love this car :D

Playing a bit on the local roads, and a BMW 3-series decides my 5-car passing (they were behind me) was in some way offending their manhood, so tailgated me whilst weaving around and crossing the white line on bends. Shabby. Anyway, there's a nice 20mph right angle bend, so I got set up to do a nice...

Height adjustable passenger seat

Basically, take the base from a US-spec driver's seat (ideally, don't strip it fully), and move the wiring, back and cushion over. Routing the wires is easy as long as you remember where they are, and it all bolts right in. Result is a vast improvement in passenger comfort for shorter people. The ti...

Automatic dipping rearview mirror and wipers are really useful items. Wipers especially - my Beetle had them and drizzly rain ceased to be a constant battle between too much rain, or too fast a setting for the wipers.

Automatic lights less so - and the kit looks, Mazda supplied or not, like a bodge.

Saw various ones in Glasgow over the weekend; silverish on the M8 (passed it), black parked next to the farmer's market on I think Byres Road... Blue with a private V-something plate.

Two Titaniums in Edinburgh today; one on Cameron Toll looked like it was trying to change lanes (I beeped, but didn't see it appear so perhaps it was just slightly over the white line) and one going down St. Mary's Street (NL04 xxx) which I flashed, but didn't respond.

Black RX8 on the A68 turning towards Hawick. Didn't catch the registration. I've seen a black one a few times around the borders now, so I'm wondering if it's a resident.

I was driving the Sera.

Automatic lights!

Mazda Australia have an auto light on/off module - fits several Mazdas, including the RX8. Having seen the sensor (looks like a third-party alarm LED), I'm not particularly excited, but for $119, it's a possible addon for people. The kit consists of: - a control module - wiring and adaptors to tap i...
