Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today?????

Fitted a replacement Headlight main beam bulb. Foolishly took the advice in the owner's manual! I.e. take off the wheel arch covers and go in from below. I decided that would be easier with wheel off, so out with the supplied jack (ugh), and eventually got access, sort-of. Then I opened the bonnet, ...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today?????

Well Wednesday, actually; Took it for a full service at an independent garage where Dave Jones owns 2 (or 3) RXs himself.

Re: South Wales - Latest meet in last few pages

Hi guys, I've just discovered this thread!
I'm a little further away than some of you, but will try to join you if I can manage it (there not being a group 'round here [that I know of]), if that's cool...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today?????

Ordered a K&N air filter. :)
Also ordered the 585 coils-and-leads set from that very nice man at Rotary Revs. :) :)
It's also booked in for its first service in my ownership when it will also get a good waxoyl-ing. Hooray!

Olyoz, I think the child would need to be <6yo, even with the ECU cover off!
Is taking the front bumper off a sensible way?
