    First Rotary I've ever owned

    I had thought i would have needed healight washers, wasn't aware of the headlight leveling though. LED install sounds easier and like less hassle ! Cheers

    Ohh, do you know is it handy to retro fit xenons? All the cars I’ve owned I’ve put either LED or aftermarket HID kits in as I love the blue look. I may may possibly fit LED’s as they’re less work that HID’s

    Hey ! So here's my RX-8 at the moment, they alloys are currently in getting a refurb and respray in gloss black at the moment so I haven't gotten a chance to give a full deep wash, wax and hoover etc and get some photos. I gave a quick hoover and window clean but nothing extensive. Here's how she sits at the moment !

    First Rotary I've ever owned

    Hi Everyone, I've just bought my first rotary engine in my RX8, 2005, two previous owners (1 in Northern Irel. and then the person I bought it off). the guy i bought it off got it in 2008 when it was just 3 yrs old and has had it the past 11 yrs. Clock is @ 96,600 Klms and people are telling me that it's time to get the engine redone. thoughts on this ? From the guy I bought it off (early 50's) had told me it was the family car until he needed something bigger. there are two invoices for previous services and the NCT certificates go right back to 2010. The cat has been taken out of the car and there is a smell of petrol in the car (which i had heard if the cat is deleted), slight underbody rust (just surface rust, can be wire brushed and coated) Also, does the oil gauge in the cluster tell me temp or oil level ? Hopefully this page will help me with my ownership of the RX8 ! Thanks
