Re: Advice - Traders: Who's Who?

I had my car serviced and MOT’d at TPS last week, first time I’ve taken it to them since moving house. Met Reece, Kim and Josh, all really nice blokes with a good knowledge of the 8. They are diversifying their business, doing MX-5s, Minis amongst other things, in a similar way to RR becoming MAP a...

Re: Advice - Traders: Who's Who?

I believe that TPS (reece) still does their work. I have seen them drop off a few different cars not just Rx8's. Not had any dealings with them myself though.

Re: My R3

Also, where did you get the refurb done - I assume you'd recommend them? It's the first time I've ever had wheels done myself and was with https://diamondcutawc.co.uk/ They are running a 25%-30% off deal until the end of August for standard colours as advertise on their FB page. I was kept updated ...

Re: My R3

After discovering that i had two buckelled wheels i decided that it would be more cost effective to get my original R3 wheels refurbished and powder coated as they where in a state. I was planning to get the closest to the original colour as possible but, whilst chatting to the manager I mentioned ...

Re: My R3

Just a small update as I haven't used the car much this year with lockdown and planned trackday trips cancelled :( I recently took a visit with the car up to see Neil at Custom Detailing for some TLC and had my spare set of R3 wheels fitted that had been sitting in the garage for over a year since ...

Re: r3 what tyres, 235/40/19 or 245/40/19 plus brand?

Sorry to highjack the thread. :thumright: Has anyone fitted 245/35/r19 tyres with 15mm spacers to their R3 and were there any issue with the fitment/ rubbing? I would like to get some rainsport 3 tyres for daily driving (although not used too much) and for the occasional wet trackday when i won't sw...

Re: Azams Racing Blue FK8 Type R

I like the polished metal and would probably be my choice. Although the Sonic grey has grown on me recently. Seeing it in real life may change that.

Re: Essex Rotary

I wouldn't want to direct anyone away from ER (I really like those guys), but if you need to look elsewhere then Boston Rotary (bigpete) is excellent and it's a lovely drive there. That is a long drive from London! Ironically it is the subframes that I bought from bigpete last year that I need Esse...

Re: Mintex 1155 pads supplier

Our supplier has no 1155 compound in stock but there is stock of 1144 compound. Are you sure 1155 compound is suitable for your type of use? To secure the best prices I would need to order c20 sets, however for lower quantities I can source the 1144 compound pads as below; Front MDB2589 1144 £110 d...
