Order not arrived... What should I do?

Hi team,

I placed an order for a couple of white owners club decals on the 9th June and not heard anything or received anything since.

Order number details are:

Order Date: 09 June 2020
Order Reference: 11595812

Could someone let me know if this has been processed?

Cheers!

Re: LC05VRY - 2005 Strato Blue 231

I really like those wheels but I haven't made my mind up yet. I could get the existing wheels refurbished and a full set of new tyres for close to the cost. Luckily I will not be home for a while and have plenty of time to mull it over. They seem to have been well received so thats a good start!

Re: LC05VRY - 2005 Strato Blue 231

Another member of the forum gave me some advice regarding the wheels shown above... here's what they said: "They are 5x114.3 (good start) They are ET45 - which is only 5mm off the stock wheels so should be fine - and they are 8.5J width which is only half an inch wider than stock so again should be ...

Re: LC05VRY - 2005 Strato Blue 231

They look great and a good colour to go with the car. Do I sense a box arriving here in the future! I can wait for the car to return home before replacing the wheels - you are doing enough for me already! The wheels can be found here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/19-Zoll-MM02-Felgen-fur-Mazda-RX8-Mut...

As Chris has shown - it has arrived with him! I really can't thank you enough for all the help you've given me, Chris. Unfortunately there is some damage to the drivers side rear wheel that I hadn't noticed before but this looks like an easy repair (I hope!) and the tyre still holds air. https://i.i...

Sorry to hijack you thread what wing you will be after I have 2x japspeed wings if interested
I'm thinking of waiting out for a MazdaSpeed one to turn up just to retain the full MazdaSpeed body kit idea. I'll think about it for a while longer before I decide.

Re: LC05VRY - 2005 Strato Blue 231

Beautiful car, I think I have seen it down at LC rotary at some point before they folded. I absolutely love this colour, it's contrasted beautifully by the carbon bonnet. Bronze wheels would look lovely. To clarify, LC rotary was run by Lee who employed a chap called Josh to do most of the engine b...

Looks cracking although forgive me for saying so but 256bhp...... I somehow doubt it how does it drive ? Or have you not yet had the chance ? I haven't driven it yet - I am positive that it doesn't make anywhere close to 256bhp. That was copy and paste from the seller's advert. It will go on a dyno...

Re: LC05VRY - 2005 Strato Blue 231

After purchasing the car and then seeing images of T200CAD I decided that I must have lambo door hinge and that the fitted Corbeau seat would be unsuitable as I wanted to get my kids in the back seats. I also decided that I wouldn't be keeping the steering wheel (due to lack of airbag) and the KODE ...

LC05VRY - 2005 Strato Blue 231

Welcome to my personal car thread! I have posted a few of the images below in a couple of other threads but I think the time has come to create a thread especially for this car. In late 2018 LC05VRY appeared on eBay, being sold by LC Rotary. It was their show car for sometime, with appearances at va...

Re: RIP T200CAD Built Not Bought....

The hinges will live on in LC05VRY. One of many cars that will benefit from the efforts of both Tony and Chris.

Thanks chaps!

Re: Importing parts from the US

In my experience of importing stuff, the price you'll pay in Stirling is roughly around the price in dollars (or it was when we were at around $1.30 to £1)

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

Today I booked the transport to move my car from the seller in Edinburgh to Chris Holmes to have the interior swapped and, depending on how difficult it will be to remove the wings, have the lambo door hinges fitted. I started to get an odd feeling from the seller who is difficult to reach while I'm...

The only difference on it's appearance now is that standard wing mirrors have been fitted. I will be changing the existing seats and door cards for a stone ...

Hi Dave,

Do you have any problems with the fascia kit you fitted? I have read bad reports on the Metra kit and yours is the only alternative I have heard of. I would be grateful for any feedback you can provide!
