Re: Anyone installed one-touch passenger window?

Aren't most cars with electric windows the same :?: :-k Obviously the driver's window is made 'one shot' so the driver only has their hand off the wheel for the briefest necessary time,and since the driver may only need to open the passenger window very occasionally,a one shot function is almost cer...

Re: First RX-8!

..he has 2 warranties ,and it needs to be decided which one his issue is covered with... Fair comment,but if he goes with the 'generic' used car warranty provider - and those aren't usually worth the paper they're printed on - they may point him toward a 'bodgitt & scarper ltd' kind of place :shock...

If the seller is as reasonable and helpful sounding as you're making out,then why not name them :?: No-one's going to mind their rep being 'tarnished' as helpful and resonable ;)

Re: Coolant - a few questions

Gotta admit..coolant change is the one I've never had done,since taking ownership over 5 years ago :shock:

Admittedly,there's never been an issue,and the R3 never ventures out in winter,but it looks like it's high time for a refresh..

On any RX8,if the engine is no longer fast-idling,and the temp gauge is registering substantially,it's safe to switch off normally.On the R3 you also have the vi...
