I've paid for both this and Beaulieu :-k ... and I think I'd rather go to Beaulieu, so a refund for this one would be appreciated, thanks.

Re: Kent Meet - Tuesday 17/03/20 **7pm**

:shock: That was a long drive then, mine was relatively easy with largely empty roads ... well, just a few cars. I remembered to fill up at the petrol station (Shell) with £115.9 per litre prices on the way too. 8)

Re: Kent Meet - Tuesday 17/03/20 **7pm**

My bowling is all cancelled for the foreseeable future. I like my own company and don't mind being housebound in general, but getting out once or twice is needed ... I'm still going if the rest of you are - I sent a message to the Performance Shop guys to say it is happening last night (no reply yet...

Re: 2007 rx8 turning over but won’t fire

I'd be inclined to try a tow start as the easiest way to clear it if it is flooded ... but I am definitely not a mechanic, so take better informed advice first.

Re: Farewell

Shame you sold up, but it was the wise thing to do at the time clearly. There are plenty still here despite parting ways with their RX-8s, so feel free to hang around and definitely carry on going to the meets. :thumleft: Good luck :salut:

Re: New R3 owner

Cobham is just down the road from me, but I will struggle to get out of work in London (on the train) in time on a weekday. I’ve added it to the diary in case I can make it. If I pushed it, I should be able to get there for nearer to 8pm. No problem, depending on the weather we may have only just g...

I just got home about an hour ago having left the hotel at about 10.30 this morning ... so an hour less to get home than it took me to get there, but the sun was shining and the roads were much clearer. I stopped for lunch about 1pm, set off again 40 minutes later ... and my CEL came on. That was a ...

No idea if it is that bad there, but it really wasn't nice out earlier and it's a long way to go when the weather is like this and there may have just been two of us show up.

@shagrinton - I'll certainly be up for that ! I'm based over in Rochester so not far away from me at all. Currently reading through the buyers guide loads of great information in there !!
