RX8's poppin up all over SF?

Curious how you really notice someone when they nearly sideslam in your car while theyre making a left but slam the breaks less than half a foot away, and just when youre bout to yell something extremely...shall we say, vulgar... you realize its another rx 8 owner and all anger just drains out, and you wave with a stupid smile on ur face! lol... anyone with a black rx8, w/o spoiler/ appearance package etc, heading out for a publix run on Federal and i believe Cypress Creek Rd on the 20th or 21st? waved, but didnt get a response. Oh and yesterday... silver rx8 heading south on I 95, i blieve taking the 595 connection around 3 o clock? was too far to honk or anything. just curious to see how many rx8 owners are on the forum, and in the ft. laud area.

I'm in the general area. We also had a mini-meet in Kendall the other night and had 7 or 8 cars there, along with a couple epople without a 8 yet.

Add to that the 5 other forum members with cars that I know of that didnt go, plus I have started to see them more foten on the street. Saw a yellow last night on Sunrise, and a Red on the turnpike (who was driving quite slow BW, shame on you!).

It's spreading around man.

I own a Titanium GT w/Appearance and I live in the Coral Springs area. I am curious if anyone wants to see what kind of bulk discount we can get on performance parts. Someone was mentioning a discount on Rotary Extereme cold air intakes. I wonder what other parts we can buy like that. It will be easy to coordinate if we all live in the same facinity.

I have seen maybe 5 in the area. I said hello to two hotties in a Red Automatic RX-8 about a month ago.

I cruise mine up from South Dade to the Airport every day. I go up the Turnpike till 874 and merge onto Palmetto Northbound to 836 where I hop off.

Same thing in reverse in the evenings. If you see a Black 8 w/ spoiler, wave!

Can't wait to spot my first 8 while I'm driving mine, I saw a few before I bought mine but none on the road since.

Hey I'd probably be up for that. I'm more or less on the Southwest corner of MIA airport.

When did you have in mind? Plenty of restaurants over on 87th Avenue north of 836.

I'm not a super mechanically oriented guy by any stretch and my stick driving is adequate and improving...so as long as ya don't bust my ***** too hard you've got a deal.

Hey sorry I didn't post earlier....how about maybe Monday or Tuesday?

I may take tomorrow off work, and besides I need to give my girl her first Zaino over the weekend so she looks good.

So tentatively Mon or Tue is good for me. Being as how you're on 107th and Bird area I think we should meet somewhere near Int'l Mall off 107th...I think there's like a Bennigans or a Fridays there?

by the way my name is Sean

It seems all of the part stores are in SoCal. If thre is a way to get a discount, I would be interested. Is there a good import store in S FLA? I live in Lake Worth.
