I Saw You Today At ......

Post by Lysander » Tue Dec 09, 2003 9:24 am

I think we will have to exclude the committee from this one after their meeting in Bath :D And I'm not including the cars at the dealers....

So far, in the two weeks that I have had my car (1300 miles) I have seen two other RX8s.

The first was a week ago, on a roundabout near Hawarden on the A55 in North Wales. It was Velocity Red (same as mine).

Yesterday I saw my second, it was Black, just coming off the A4 heading towards Heathrow.

Still pretty rare more than a month after deliveries began don't you think?

Oh and that includes the A4 at GSK House on the Great West Road.

I saw one, my first one since the committee meeting, in the car park near Homebase in Taunton.

A velocity red, without strafes or front rotary accent.

I left an owners club card under the windscreen wiper.

Any one here?

I have done 2700 miles now inlcuding trips to the SW and the NW and I have only seen one on the road.

That was at junction 4a of the M3 by the Sun Microsystems offices. It was Titanium Grey with a 53 reg, anyone here?

Cheers

None so far in Edinburgh. Still feeling 'sepcial' :roll:

One of the guys at work claims to have seen a black, a red (not me), a silver and 2 blues driving about, mostly in the Leith area of town. Not sure I believe him and think he may be yanking my chain, especially about the 2 blue RX's.

Our company car park is so full of Audi TT's, BMW M3's, Porsche Boxters etc its difficult to see anything

I picked up my red RX8 on 27th Nov, since then I've seen one silver in Leeds and another in Sheffield

It's nice being a bit different

Definitely yanking your chain mate. I live in Leith and have seen nada. Hopefully there'll be a yellow one doing the rounds soonish but that's about it.

I suppose there might be a couple of rarely used ones tucked up in big communal garages in the big developments around here, but I've not seen 'em.

I've only seen 1 other in Harrogate, someone else has a black 8 but without fins. Still looks great though. :D

Where are the 80 or so JCT600 are supposed to have sold?

I've not seen any others yet. Although I was in a Supermarket today Orbist and Mine's a Titan ( hey, that sounds so much better than being described as a tit driver)

Supermarket was in Havant, on the way back from Langstone at about noon.

The only ones that I have seen have been in showrooms.

It appears from this forum that there are plenty around the Essex Kent area. Where are they?

Perhaps we are all keeping them out of the rain

Or saving up for petrol!

Considering my local dealer has supposedly sold 34, I have yet to see one. I saw some thing red and fast (with the front indicators in the correct place) but it was dark and drove past very very quickly. Thats the closet I have been. :(
