The RX-8 OC has strict rules on trading within the forum.

A paid up Club Member is permitted to sell items on the forum to a limited extent before requiring to register as a Trader. Typically, the limit will be at the level of selling a personally owned RX-8, or breaking an RX-8 and selling the parts, once in a period of 12 months. Selling miscellaneous RX-8 related parts or tools is permitted, but if the level of such sales is deemed unreasonable by the Moderators the Club Member will be required to register as a Trader to continue. If a Club Member is offering a paid-for service on a continuing basis, then they must register as a Trader. Club Members must not include any advertising or links in their forum signatures, nor must their forum name bear any relationship to a business which would imply any form of promotion of that business.

All selling activity must take place within the existing “Buying and Selling” Forum area.

Group buys carried out by Club Members are encouraged and are not regarded as Trading or Selling on the forum.

Anyone wishing to Trade on the forum outside these rules may wish to apply for "Trader" or "Sponsor Trader" status, details of which can be found ... 5#p1196815
