Impressions following the first tank fill up

First. Ouch.

Second, wooweee worth it.

I sometimes have to look around awkwardly because pedestrians crossing in front of me stop and look.

More than a couple of times I have seen people sitting at tables on the side of the road look up and check the car out.

I even went to a restaurant named "Hops" and as the food was delivered, my friend asked if something was wrong with my food cause I was staring at the plate. the food was fine but the plate was shaped like a rotary. lol.

I avoided many mistakes and I am sure will avoid others because of the advice of people on this site. Thanks a lot! Zoom Zoom!

Looks good, but perhaps you should consider removing that dealership tag.

I really like your car. I too would remove the dealership tag, that rear end looks too cluttered instead of SMOOOOOOTH like the RX-8 should

I love it! Very clean. Did you do all those mods yourself? With the RX8 3rd brake light and strakes? Pretty clean. But, I would agree on removing the dealer tag. They are usually pretty willing to do this as well.

Put a piece of fishing line (thinner the better) across both thumbs and slide it down under the badge, trying to keep the fishing line touching the car as you pull it down. This is best done when the car is warm (the body!)

yea, I am going to have the dealership remove it when I go back for my plates. I figured I got a good deal so I would give them a month of advertising. I wish the capitol building and the washington monument showed up better in those pics.

Another thing I noticed to day is that I see every parking lot as enemy territory and anyone around my car like they are a potential terrorist. not being used to the streets of northern virginia I get lost all the time....and its awesome.

Looking forward to a trip to Myrtle Beach next month to put some highway miles on her.
