I have purchased a low mileage 2008 40th anniversary RX-8 and will take possession of it this week assuming it passes the mechanical inspection and compression test. I'm really looking forward to getting the car as I have always wanted a rotary engined car since the days of the RX-7. In fact in 1989 when I bought my first car it was between an Acura Integra and a second gen RX-7 and I've always regretted going with the Integra.
Anyways, as a new owner I have the following questions I was hoping to get assistance with:
a. How many key fobs does the car come with new, I should have asked the dealer I'm buying the car from but I assume when it was new it came with two fobs is that correct?
b. I'm planning on winter driving the car but we do have a lot of salt here in Ontario. Anyone rust proof their car with something like Krown (http://www.krown.com/#products/rust/) or Rust Check and what has your experiences been with it?
c. Generally I prefer smaller and thinner tires for winter, tire rack recommends a 17 tire for winter driving for this model. Does the 40th anniversary have the exact same brakes as the 2008 GT and thus no issues with going down a tire size?
d. Has anyone gotten a clear bra on the front of the car and how as it worked for you? My Mom has it on her Camry and it looks like it does a good job of protecting the front of the car from rocks and chips.
Thanks for the help.

The only one not really answered is about the bra. I have seen a few 8's on here with a clear bra and it looks what I consider really good. The proper ones are designed for the car and they don't look bad, and only do good for the paint and body.
I would get one, but my front end is already needing paint :P
