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

Lost some rubber on my tyres due to a lovely merc driver who blatantly ignored the passing place he was at to drive towards me. Then proceeded to smile and thumbs up at me as he drove past my lovely cloud of smoke. How ignorant some idiots are...

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

Went for a little drive to town first time in a couple of days since I missed two days of work. Glad to see the wax I applied the other day really does make life easier. Cleaning off bird crap and such is a breeze now and the water beading is 10/10! can't wait to see what itll be like when I next wa...

Arranged getting all the oils and fluids for a big service. Getting ahold of a compression tester next week too to use when I do service it. Currently still a bit iffy on hot starts. :(

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

Actually it was just 2 coil packs which seems odd.. Why not change all 4 if you're changing 2? £91 each. And the leads were £46. I presume they are still the leads on the car now. Seems a bit sketchy to me. Also had a new cat at £245 at the same time...

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

Starting to think my 8 has started to take a bit longer to turn over whilst hot. Hoping it'll just be weak spark plugs since they are due to be changed very soon.. Not managed to have a look at what coils are in it yet but I have a receipt for new coils + leads from 2014 I think it was. It doesn't s...

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

I am 'that person' who gets the car as dirty as possible before it goes to the dealer so they give my car a wash for me. Favourite was when I took the Vectra across a ploughed field on a shoot on a wet August day the day before it was going into main dealer for a service. On the plus side, it was r...

Re: So today I purchased a lovely rx8

For the sake of fixing the issue, the sensor was unplugged so it must've been loose and come undone when I went down my track. Plugged back in and all is good.

I can't remember exactly what bottles they are. But they are 100% better then the crappy ones I had before. I also thought it looked a bit sketchy when I was putting it in the boot.

Managed to get the number plate relocated with partial success with the end result. Made a couple of mistakes along the way but I'll probably redo it at some point.

Bottles for keeping premix in the car!

I bought some exol 2 stroke 5L a while back for premixing. I also bought some plastic bottles I was hoping would be good enough to keep 200ml lots of 2 stroke in the boot. However they apparently leak! (thankfully I put them in a sealable bag before putting them in the boot so the leaking didnt get ...

Cable tied the third brake light wiring. Anddd dished out some 2 stroke for premixing finally since tomorrow is fuel day! Tomorrow is relocating the front number plate since the number plate holder is dead. Can't wait for that sleek out of the way lower position.

Re: Tyres And Emissions

Getting tyres online is definitely cheaper. You can even get them cheaper than on such sites as blackcircles etc if you look hard enough. Or alternatively the club has a compiled list of popular brands on a site for full members with OEM or otherwise sizings.

Rang my "local" mazda dealer (60 mile trip either way) to sort out the recalls on the car. Not sure what recalls are on it currently but.. Lets hope if its the fuel related one.. Everything goes fine. A week friday is the day!
