Hi everyone. First post as I just signed up after buying an RX8 a few hours ago which is getting delivered this afternoon (Wednesday).

I live in Teesside in the NE of England and have bought an 09 plate RX8 R3 with 15k miles and even though I have only had a short test drive I had to buy it!!.

Anyone got any 'must know' information for a 100% noob to the RX8?. I've read about using dexelia oil but that's is only info I know.

Cheers

Got my first RX8 a couple of weeks ago. Nice red 192 with the cloth seats (dislike leather - tend to slide around on it). Traded up from an MG ZR and blimey - does that thing shift. Very comfortable too!

Hello buddies!

I'm new in RX-8 comunity, in France, and I'm looking an internet shop where we can buy mazda parts (or copies) for a decent price.
Until now, I find only websites located in USA. so very expensive with shipping cost and taxes.

Do you have any recomendation for europe?

Thanks

Hi All,
Been an RX8 owner for the last week now with "Roxy"... she's a 2006 231ps Evolve in Copper Red Mica... and I love her

Anyone around North Wales area then? Also, if anyone knows of someone selling an Aero Front Lip as I can't find one anywhere (unless I pay mental cash), then feel free to PM me.

Well, mod wise, I've already put 20mm spacer on, replaced the standard front and rear discs with Cross Drilled and Grooved... just ordered the wheel spash protectors in Copper colour and the Aero side skirts, just can't find a front splitter for it though... Will chuck some photo's up soon.

Anyone near me, feel free to say hello :-)

Good luck, there's no such thing as a straight bolt on kit.
