Glad to have you!

I'm thinking we should push the meet back later than February to make sure we have good weather... Even though it hasn't snowed yet AT ALL yet at Ramstein.

Damn... ****... I was driving in town today at 50 or 60 km/h and I turned into a small lane and still continue that speed but the speed limit for that short stretch was at 30km/h and a damn speed camera flashed at me... Anyone knows what's the cost of the fine?

I have just relocated to Hamburg (Eidelstedt) last year, too (from lower Saxony).

Once my 8 has its new heart, we could meet up?
I'm sure at least one other local friend of mine would also love to join with his nice 8.

Howdy everyone.

I will be visiting Germany from the 21st of May to the 6th of June and was hoping you all could help me with some information. I will be staying in Berlin and I have to make it to the ring. I do not plan on renting a car for my general visit by may rent one at the ring for a lap. Does anyone have any experience with this? I assume most of you drive to the ring in your 8 but if you have any tips on getting from Berlin to the ring that would be great as well. Has anyone rented a car at the ring? How was your experience there?

Thanks for the help!

Right here man! '04 Velocity Red. Sadly, I made a dumb mistake 5 months ago and got a DUI. My 8 will be back on the roads in short 7 months :/ she's garaged right now.

Awesome, we used to have about five of us here with an 8 and we'd meet up. Now there's about 6 or 7 but we have no idea who each other are other than waving on a drive by or something.

Engine rebuild

Hey guys I'm stationed at Landstuhl. I brought an 8 for $360. I had one before coming to Germany last year. Do any of you have experience rebuilding an engine that would not mind helping me or a shop that does a rebuild?

Rebuild

I left Wiesbaden Germany last December. I had built about 6 Rx-8s before I left. The only other builder I knew of is Higgi, a good buddy of mine. The issue with him is that he lives in Czech but he travels to Germany all the time. He has a ton of rx7 and rx8 parts. He used to come to my house in Wiesbaden about every couple of months. I went to a car show near him to show support for the rotary cars. He is also on this forum. Send him a PM and see what he can help with. I've added a link so you can se a thread he was selling some RHD rx-8 parts.
