Well, the other day I went to wash and detail my 2005 Sunlight Silver RX8 and ended up buying her a 2004 red headed step-sister that only has 48k miles on her. She has decent compression numbers (7.8, 7.7, 7.8 @250rpm on Rotor 1 and 7.4, 7.6, 7.5 @ 250rpm on Rotor 2) She didn't come with the wheels, I had them in the shed for my daily driver Silver 8 for summer but they look good on this one.





Not a big fan of red cars but it was priced to sell at $5k and I couldn't resist.

Blew a fuse upon start-up this morning, causing me to be late... Oh well, I guess that's what I get for using 100A fuses with my trunk-relocated battery that has 800 CCA. That's also what I get for thinking my sport-oriented RX8 would be decent at daily driving. Just a few more dd days hopefully...

I've put a couple hundred miles on them and they feel great. Granted, my old rotors were warped to ****. For the price I'd definitely recommend them though.

Nice sig

Yeah, I only have a size 8 boot, and rented a 3 pedal Citroen C3 diesel in France.

Idiots put a molded metal footrest right next to clutch so one had 3 inches wide for clutch foot.

Nearly everytierm my foot would hit that rest going down, and keep clutch engaged so I couldn't shift.

If i owned thaT crap, I'd get a torch and cut that **** out. I already unbolted the plastic one in mine to get kneee out of my face.

People caN HATE on 6 speed auto all thery want, but mine is like a dream of smooth quiet shifting.

At 222,930 miles. Replaced my Mishimoto Radiator and now it's back to stock(one of the fin broke and caused a leak), coolant flushed, replaced the front brake pads, installed new rear struts(fronts will be done this weekend), oil changed, new spark plugs and ignition coils. Now, I have to clean the EPS connections and check engine light is showing P0506. Gonna have to drive it a few more times to see if the ECU relearn the trims, two more monitors are still inactive. I haven't disconnected the battery is years and I've completely forgotten about this 'chasing the RPM".

Changing to Koyorad, turns out the coil sockets broke and easily comes off and on, gotta change that too, leaking at the oil pan, cleaned SSV, little bit of rust here and there, gonna just spray it with black pilox, might change transmission oil too. lots of work. might take up to 2 days. getting my BHR coils by wed morning. might as well change that too.

Gonna move my battery to the trunk for more ventilation and gonna set up a oil catch can/tank and use 1 inch distilled water as a filter, sounds good or bad?
