Mowing the grass verge out the front this morning, only takes 15 minutes, a saw TWO RX8s!

The first (a silver) came from behind and passed without warning.

The second (blue) I saw coming the other way and couldn't resist giving a thumbs-up, getting a smile and flash in response.

So, if you were driving up or down the A2 (NI) today and saw someone dressed like a tramp riding a mower that looks like it's escaped from the set of Mad Max, then it was me :D

I'll currently on holiday in Pembrokeshire, we drove down on Friday and since we arrived I have seen three RX8s, a black one parked at the car park at the north end of the Cleddau bridge, a blue one driving near Freshwater West beach and another black one driving near Pembroke.

Spotted one galaxy grey 8 at Tesco in Keith. Had a pretty decent chat with the owner. First one spotted since the day I bought my car.

I know the R3 is only about 5 horses better off over the S1 ( stock ) but he kept right up with me,at one point we were side by side laughing at each other :lol: Don't worry I wasn't over the speed limit..........much :giggle: Have to say it made my day,it was a lovely evolve too and decatted to death,the thing was like a pop corn machine :lol:

Was very surprised to see 2 here in Amoudara (Crete) yesterday - a standard looking S1, and an R3 with big exhausts and wing.
