Bought another 8

I regretted getting rid of my last one, so I ended up getting another one finally. But this time in velocity red mica, I like it better than the Brilliant Black I had before.
2007 with 24k miles on engine, had BHR ignition installed by previous owner, and I also decided to add in a 3yr 36k mile powertrain warranty. I am in need of an engine cover though, and noticed the flashing TPMS light driving back home but it disappears, then starts flashing again. I checked all tires and no leaks though..

Looks fresh man. Iskou should have that engine cover. Send him a message. He's parting one out.

That's an interesting rear spoiler. Which one is it?

Not sure exactly what spoiler it is since it was on there before I bought it.

Congrats!

I regretted selling mine as well.

Luckily, I ran into the current owner at an autocross and I'm going to bring it home tomorrow morning.

You and RIWWP were lucky to get them back.
I guess there's a lesson to be learned, don't sell your 8!

It's a play on, "From your mouth yo God's ears". Since I'm a secular humanist, it seems a little disingenuous to invoke "God".

Nice! Good luck with her. The 3 year power train warranty is via what company?

Side note, I'd worry about that backboard falling on your new baby or on someone's head.

Yeah, thanks. I was removing it when I took that picture. Since I have had this car for a week now, I have noticed that it drives and feels just as good as my last one that had a mazdamaniac tune, lightweight flywheel, bhr midpipe. Guess that's a good thing.

Says a lot about this car, or it doesn't say much at all about your previous mods. Maybe your butt dyno needs to be calibrated?

Might be, Either way I am happy with this one and am glad I bought another.
