UK RX-8 Owners

Just a quick message, if there are many UK RX8 owners? I know there is a uk site but the site charges and I don't have paypal and this club seems to have all the information needed!

Any owners living around London, South london?

Hertfordshire here.

I don't go on the UK Owners Club site either (they banned me! ) but there are quite a few 8 owners on MazdaRotaryClub.com and we have events round the London area - you just missed this months Dartford meet but there's one the second Tuesday in every month.

As g4crx says check out Facebook.

Yeah we get quite a good RX-8 turnout - normally manage to out number the RX-7's.

new owner

Hi guys,
just bought a 2004 rx-8 (231). Really really happy with it. Never had so much fun on the road!

Just a quick question. Are there any tips/advice I need for maintenance etc? The cars had a full service from the mazda garage at the start of the year, so its running fine for the moment (and hopefully for the distant future as well!)

thanks.

I'm picking up my rx-8 tomorrow, can't wait. I'm so excited I may cream myself.

Oh, and hello from the Midlands!

Will you be around in Oct? I'm headed to Lakenheath the first of Oct, and my 8 should be there by then. Any advice you can provide in regards to a US spec 8 and the UK MOT? Here's what I've done:

1. Replaced front corners with the JDM/E-in-a-circle clears w/amber bulbs.
2. Installed factory/JDM rotary shaped foglight in the rear, with drivers tell-tale. (PITA!)
3. Tweaked the alignment of the headlights, but I'm sure this will have to be addressed by a shop once I get there.

Should I utilize the base auto hobby shop for the MOT? I found a website for Mildenhall MOT Station; is that any good? I'd appreciate any assistance you can provide.

Yeah they're not keen on that - along with many other things.

Stealth I love your avatar - I had it on the owners club but I had to reduce the resolution right down to load it so it looked like 'BUNG'

Are any of you UKers going to JapShow this weekend?

Thought i'd pop in and say hello, been a lurker on here from quite some time.
I'm from the N/W sunny BOLTON, i'm nomally on 2 wheels the RX8 is the family and rainy day car, and a dam fine one it is,except for the rusting of various parts.
It looks like the us lads have the same sort of dealers as here in the uk RUBBISH, except their parts are alot cheaper
