I wondered if it was you with that number plate :) My first actual recognition on this thread !!!

I was going slow as I needed to be in the inside lane to turn off to the big Tesco's at the roundabout! Otherwise would have still been with you. Got that journey ahead tomorrow A34, M40, M6 looking forward to a nice blast!

These RX8s are getting common!! I've seen more today than I've ever seen except at a meet. :shock:
My first Strato seen this morning on Blackmoor Drive in Liverpool and I got a wave of the bloke driving it.
Then saw loads at Cheshire Oaks this afternoon,
a Silver parked near mine covered in berry bird poo,
a red parked up, and a different red one driving out at the same time as me..the woman driving it looked very surprised to see another one ;)
then saw a silver with an X reg plate on, and another red heading towards Ellesmere Port while I was heading to Frodsham
A busy day for spotting 8s

A mutual spotting Sean, was checking out your car when I spotted it had an OC sticker on the windscreen. I don't normally get in early enough to bag that space, but it does mean, nobody to the left and I can park so that I leave a big gap to the right, hence no door dings :)

Unlike my pair of matching dings, one per side, courtesy of work colleagues who won't own up (and I forgot who was parking next to me on those days) :(

Saw two black RX-8s yesterday (Saturday) - first one near small-holdings/garden centres over towards Wallington (about 4.15 I didn't see it in time to wave), second one went past me going towards Epsom & Ewell as I was about to turn left for home (about 7.15pm).

Silver 55 plate, just before junction 10 on the M56 eastbound towards Manchester....on the hard shoulder :( .

First 8 on the hard shoulder I've seen! Hope it wasn't anything too serious. Probably out of fuel (I know of at least one person who's done that when pushing the orange light). Would've rendered assisstance had I not been hurtling past at the national speed limit at the time.
Mildly modified.
Furiously Wankelling away since August 2004.
Engine 1 spun its last spin at 88620 miles (YouTube before&after). Engine 2 still going...
