I saw a V-Red one in Henfield High Street on Friday afternoon,I think it is the one with the very low small front number plate :!:

Today passing me on the A281 coming in to Horsham passing Dairy Crest Dept was a Black "56 plate.I could not flash as I was trying to pass that cycless.

RedRenesis,I do not pound the A24 very often so,I do not see many RX8`s :) When I am on that road I am yet to see another 8 :twisted:

I must look out for your car :D :lol:

If it had gold wheels it was me, but I was with two other Rexs, so you'd have probably seen them too?

Saw a couple of red ones today, plus a couple of Ti greys, all round East Grinstead/Crowborough/Horsham !

Spotted a black rex on the a689 wolviston roundabout heading towards the A19 this morning and later spotted a yellow 53 plate 230bhp in the Hartlepool F.E. college carpark.

To add injury to insult my grandfather (who is at the grand old age of 80) pipes up this morning that my type of car is becoming 'very common' ! :shock: He also spots a black rex driven round hartlepool recently (maybe Lexx?) and also a red one. He has also approached a lady driving / parking a strato blue rex thinking it was me at first. Probably scared the poor lass half to death and proceeded to have a converstaion with her about the car, apparently it wasn't her other halfs car and hence why she was having problems parking it.

So be warned if you are driving an rx8 in the Hartlepool area and a little old man driving a red micra starts looking at you strangely... he belongs to me and is really quite harmless. :lol:

Any around Worcester and Kidderminster?

I've seen quite a few around these parts as of late and was wondering if any belong to people here?

I'm in a Silver VA53!

Although based in Herts I am very regularly around your part of the world as my aged parents live in Malvern. So often leaving M5 at Worcester South Junction and whizzzing around the various local roundabouts that lead to the Hills....
