Re: Numberplate Relocation

Hi and :welcome: Jeags. Lowering the number plate centrally can have an adverse effect on the cooling airflow to the radiator (the air for that goes through the lower grille opening which a lowered plate can partially block). A lowered but offset plate does not create this problem - it is also very ...

Re: WTB AUTOMATIC RX8

Who did the rebuild? This could indicate if the rebuild is likely to be a good one and whether the warranty is worth anything, unfortunately there have been a couple of "rebuild specialists" where this has not been so.

Re: New RX8 owner - hello!

Hi and :welcome: Mattblack_lude. :D It's been a while since I stopped to look, but if you mean the dials have a sort of blue glow to them after you've locked the car etc I think that is normal, they do that for a minute or two ... perhaps (I have this vague memory from when I first got mine of it lo...

Re: Tyres And Emissions

:welcome: Lewis. For a slightly wider, lower profile and cheaper tyre that will not alter the rolling radius by nearly as much and will be the right quality you would be better off getting 235/40 or 245/40. There is a bit about tyres in the FAQs here https://www.rx8ownersclub.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.p...

Re: Rattle 'down under' opinions please

It is so hard to identify where a noise is coming from ... could it be the heat shield on the exhaust, that has often been the source of mystery rattles in the past?

Re: Specialist in Scotland - located in FIFE

I'd get in touch with Ben (minisaki) - probably easiest through the Scottish group on Facebook. He has been busy swapping stuff from his old RX-8 to his new one, but if he has time he would be able to put a new cat on. He is in Paisley.
