Spotted another VR '54-plate in the rear car park of the Harlow Mill Beefeater / Travel Inn on Friday evening. Now, was this owner dining, sleeping or boozing? Perhaps all three? :) And, hopefully, you weren't the gentleman having a rather loud, expletive-filled argument on their mobile phone outside... :roll:

Ahem, I think it was probably me though I am a Strato and not a BB. I was very stressed at the time over things too tedious to detail here. In fact I didn't even register it was a pz I was following :oops:

As for being given a "WOOPIN" I was merely being a gentleman and let the lady go first 8)

BTW I don't know if she reported the double collision we nearly had with two smaller cars (Fiesta or somesuch) who came out onto the roundabout by the M10 right in front of us :shock:
ok, seems to be important: 190, Strato Blue, black leather. 29/03/06. Someone keeps stealing my fuel...

RX's seem to be very rare in Cornwall - after 4 weeks of living here the only other ones I have seen are ones for sale in Vospers Truro!

"Chiefy" Where abouts in Cornwall are you? I don't know of any other owners down here, I too only tend to see other rx8's at vospers, I have seen another strato a few times - o6 plate I think.

James RX8 - We recently moved to Polgooth between St Austell and Mevagissey. I have been keeping my eye open for any "meets" down here but incredibly I havent seen one other RX so far. Nowhere in Cornwall is very far away so meeting up should be quite easy if there were any. If you are referring to Vospers in Truro - have you had any experience of them?

I am only a few miles away from you in St Blazey ( near the eden project).

Have had dealings with vospers, got my previous car from them and have used them for servicing and a few warranty claims on the rex (car was supplied by them but I got it privately). They are always helpful and I have never had any probs with them.

Might have to arrange a mini meet - good choice in colour - I also have a strato 190 with leather.

Yes just been looking at the website - should have done that in the first place. Daft not to meet up sometime at such a short distance.

Driving out of St Blazey (Cornwall) this afternoon towards St Austell at about 5.15 passed another Strato coming the other way. An 06 plate - but didnt get the whole Reg. More importantly the first one I have seen in four weeks after moving down here. Was that you James RX8?

Afraid not, the rex has been in the garage all day :(
Mine is a 55 plate. Think I have seen the one you mentioned b4.
What plate is yours?

Seen loads around Milton Keynes this weekend and yesterday at about 6:30pm comming back from Bicester saw a BB with sliver stripes and a personalised plate. Looked really nice - you wouldn't have seen me as I wasn't in my car.

Saw quite a few this weekend down in West Wales:

Strato parked in Pendine Sands car park on Friday - very dirty, shame on you :P

Another VR in Aberystwyth on Saturday and Sunday. Sunday it was parked on the sea front.

On Saturday I spotted a Copper Evolve - the first one I've seen ...

This is a bit late, but I saw an orangy-red one ?!?! (respray?) on the horrible roundabout at mill hill leading up to the A1 on Thurday evening and also a silver one in Kings Lynn (Norfolk) on the hospital roundabout at about midday Friday...
Anyone here?

Went up to soctland for the weekend, passed 3 north bound on M74, 2 going east bound on A75. No body waved :cry:

Followed one into work this morning on A19 towards Middlesborough, overtook him, said hello grey 230 05 plate, didn't wave :cry:

Passed 5 last thursday on A19 towards Newcastle and still no one waved. :evil:

I've also noticed i'm the only one with owners club decals so maybe they just don't realise they're supposed to wave, instead of giving me a blank stare :)
