Mazda RX8 Malaysia Club

Hi . My name is Aaron George Abraham. I am an owner of a red RX8 in Kuala Lumpur. To all Malaysian owner's of RX8 I would like to ask all of you to join in the efforts to make an RX8 club here in Malaysia where we would meet once a week to hangout and have drinks. Talk about our babies and see the development of others. This hangout place would be at The Curve in a retro styled bistro called Blue Garlic. Please do not hesitate to call me at 012-3719987 for more info or leave a message here with your email . Or best email me with your details so that I can sms you guys once we can start the club. For the first meeting food and drinks will be provided by myself.
Let us get together and show off our babies to the Kuala Lumpur people.

I am hoping to register this club when it has reached more than 40 people. And maybe we can get together with another group that is already in existant here in Malaysia. At the moment I already have 4 friends who drive the RX8. One of my friends is going down to australia in april and he will be buying some parts for me and himself maybe if you need anything can ask him to get it also .
:D

Hi Aaron! Good day to you! I'm very happy to hear that somebody's finally decided on setting up a RX8 Club in KL! If i don't travel so much, i think i'd start the club myself! I own a white RX8 and i think we should meet up sometime. I know 2 other rx8 owners, one in penang and another in KL. it would be great to meet up and share info on the car. I'll give you a call sometime this week and we could meet up.

wow Aaron, that's a very formal introduction.. maybe you should put your IC number next to your full name as well.. hehe just kidding, kudos to you for kicking off a club for our brothers across the dire straits.. then one day perhaps a MY-SG gathering!

truthfully i believe that a my-sg club could be organized. the fact is straight that there are not more than 30 rx-8 owners in kuala lumpur. and it wont be a great club gathering if we cant fill up the jockey area with all rx-8's . the reason for the club is for us to share experiences on mods of the car. this will help the owners of rx-8 to better the quality of their car. there is also another group now in zerotohundred.com that is organizing such a club and i hope we can join forces with them too.

8 is going for about RM240,000 for full specs 6 speed manual and about RM260,000 for auto (cant understand who the hell wants to buy an auto, they are two different cars totally) but these prices are actually quoted prices and can fall about RM30K each if you negotiate well. I just bought mine for RM205,000 with navigator that has been mod to become a DVD/cd/mp3 player. it is a full specs car with 18 inch rims and bodykit. i scouted for it for about a month before i got it from naza. even then they only sold it to me at 215K but i got it brought down to 205k . unbelievable. had to do a little negotiating and a huge downpayment which i will be getting back as i got the loan approved at 229k . interesting huh .

i'm not too sure if it's cheaper in KL. since the rx8 is brought in only as grey imports, cycle and carriage do not carry any spare parts/accessories for the car. Your best bet would be the personalized body kit vendors in KL. You can call Daiichi - 603 56388266 or Bumi Fiberglass - 603 79545575 to see if they carry replicas. There's also another shop in Sunway that's quite good, but i forgot their name, Bonnyloh does, u can ask him.

yeah, feels like a loss in power. it feels as though the car hesitated a bit before speeding on. i read some threads in the forum and heard a number of the members having similar problem but they also get the CEL lights (???? what are CEL lights?) come one. could be the spark plugs, maybe i need to change them, since it's been sitting around for a year without being driven.

if you have a rough idle at around 750rpm... chances are your plugs are almost gone. I'm having that prob but after making the engine sing.... i did noticed some improvements. maybe u can try that but power loss i have no idea.... soz mate

CEL = Check Engine Lights
as for the 6-7k power loss

this is what ive found :

install a new cat, spark plugs(get the hotter leading plugs)..........ignition coils........and this will solve your problem.........

there is a bodykit shop near my house in cheras they are quite good . but i believe that not many shops would hold anything for the rx8. maybe you would have to custom make . anyway went to a great shop in damansara perdana for the past 2 days. had my tint done and ordered some badass sound system worth above 10k . hopefully with the fyber glass installation it wont exceed 30k .

hey boonyloh, i just installed a clifford alarm from the place called CSE. they gave me a deal on it and they were the ones who installed my stereo as well. i think you should go to them, they have very good experience with the RX8 (electronics, wiring), which i think is very important. Not a single drill on my car. let me know if you're keen.
