Red one in Homebase, Maidenhead. K8 ***. Mine was the black one just about to leave.
I sold the RX-8, I got a Volvo.

Got a wave from a chap in an 06 T/Grey on the A38 near Morrisons (Bromsgrove). For once, I was beaten into 2nd place with the wave.

Anyone here? If so, hello. :D

I shared a wave with a strato MM06 xxx earlier today on the M6 southbound. Joined him about Stoke and travelled in convoy until the M6/M6 Toll split. I'm sure we met at last years Annual Meet/AGM but I can't remember your name - Sorry!!!!

I wave at all other RXs, most of the time I get funny looks. When I drive the Range Rover I wave at other Range Rover users, they tend to wave back however with the RX8 I think the approach speeds are that much higher they tend not to see.

waved at a woman in an 07 plate, redish colour!!! on the ring road in Leeds earlier in the week, she looked at me like I was from Mars. So I just thought :swear:
Titanium Grey, bling wheels (set number 6) Now gone but will never be forgotten, sat nav, I-mob tracking, SS Strakes, full set of RB grills, K&N Filter and Borla zorst. Now lowered.

Just ask me where anything is, it will be in the boot!!

Now she's "the reasonably priced car is the star" as driven by Jason Plato on Fifth Gear. :notworthy:

Finally got a wave from another rx8 on Thursday morning. Sat at a junction waiting to pull out onto Durham Road (from Sedgfield into Stockton). Feeling rather depressed as I had Year 9 that morning and then a winning blue drove past, I thought to myself I won't wave as no one ever waves back, and to my surprise he waved first! I did return the wave but may have looked a tad surprised. Didn't half cheer me up mind :D

I was begining to wonder if I would see any RX8`s,as I haven`t seen any for 4 weeks :!: :!:

Today I have seen 4 :D :D :D :D

The 1st was Winning Blue BJ53 WYH :?: I think the letters are wright :!:
I saw it in Henfield High Street turning off into Church Street,I was`nt in mine as I was standing outside a shop at the time.I must say I liked the Black wheels that was fitted to the 8. 8)

The 2nd was Copper Red ??07 ??? coming the other way as I was leaving Godfreys Mazda in Southwater (just bought some oil as they give me 10% discount).I flashed & waved,the driver waved back to me,which I was :shock: :shock: shocked :!:

The 3rd was Black LR06 CMO which I saw in Swan Walk multi story car park in Horsham.

The 4th was V-Red ??53 ??? which was at Godfreys of Southwater,Horsham up for sale £13,995 I think :!: I know that should not count as it is`nt going anywhere.

So I am so very happy now as I have seen some 8`s now :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
