Re: Do you see many RX8's?

Saw a black R3 in Highwoods while working on CheekyWankel's 192 heading towards the car dealerships. Possibly was New Duke? Might've been someone else though as it was too far away to see the number plate

A rather depleted gathering this evening, but enjoyable nonetheless, and the food was good. I thought I was going to be on my own for a while!
But at least it was a 100% RX-8 turnout, which hasnt happened for a very very long time ;)

Re: Can I drive your car?

Don't forget if he's covered to drive other vehicles it will likely be on a third-party basis only. If that's a worry, plenty of places do temporary insurance now from hours to days - all online with near instant cover. You can even get learner insurance this way too now :) and its not too expensive

Make sure it's got decent tyres on, especially with it being your first car. I drove for 18 months with Chinese ditchfinders, and it's pretty unpleasant in the wet.
