New Members, New Owners, Read this first!

If you have just joined the site, you are either thinking of buying an RX-8, or have just purchased one. Here is the short list of HIGHLY recommended reading. This list is so recommended as to be suggested to every single new member by other members, so if you read up on these first, before creating a thread, you will be doing yourself a huge favor!

New and Potential Owner's information thread:
This thread was written to cover nearly all of the basic questions that get asked here time and time again. It explains some of the myths and misperceptions of the rotary, how it works, many of the critical things you have to pay attention to, basics about caring for your rotary, and what you can do to make it last longer. If you ask a question that is covered here, you can expect to be pointed back at it as a response.

New owner first steps:
This thread covers the basic first things you can do for nearly free that will get you off to a great start with your rotary. They will address most of the common faults that new owner's make from ignorance, as well as helping to pick up on possible issues from the prior owner.

RX8Club.com forum rules:
Please read through this. The staff doesn't want to hand out penalties to new members just because they didn't read it.

Creating threads:
- You can reply to posts anywhere in on the forum, but you can only create threads in the New Member subforum until you have 10 counted posts AND 30 days as a member. Then the restriction is lifted. This helps cut down on spam and scam, as well as flaming you might get for asking a "newbie" question in some of the more critical and harsh subforum. Please don't spam the forum trying to get your post count though, just participate normally! 10 posts is easy enough, especially if you wander through the Multimedia subforum and comment on people's pictures or video.
Please include descriptive titles for threads you create! "Help" isn't a good title, neither is "Hi". Rule #14 states that we shouldn't have to open the thread to know what it's about
FOR SALE and WANT TO BUY threads are NOT permitted outside of the classifieds section! Your post text will be removed and replaced with a repetition of this statement.
