    First mods for my Rx8

    just got it back from the bodyshop, and decided to have the splitter colour-coded, and the rotary crest done silver.

    also installed my 3 pod gauges, just need to do an oil change and fit the pressure and temp sensors.

    commenst welcome

    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    is it the 192 or 231 brake version? I'm liking yours alot, enough to make me think twice about getting a mk5 astra next year anyway hmmm. don't think I could get insured on the category 15 they all seem to be rated at :/ it's only a 1.3 :/ hehehe I love that part...
    yeah I get 200bhp from my 1.3 ... even if it is a 2.6 at heart

    mines the 192

    being only 23, the insurance on this is high enough, let alone that on a 231.

    still love it

    Yup, it isn't the most economical car, but I still really want one!

    The over time I get from weekend work will pay for my fuel Most people over at the RX8OC say they get about 240 miles off of 50-55litres of petrol, which isn't too bad, when you think how much more fun it'll be to drive over my 1.6 SXi

    If you don't mind me asking, how much are you paying to insure it? With my mum (not an effing chance would I let her anywhere near it)!!) on the insurance, my best quote so far is £780, and on top of that I'd be tempted to go for aftermarket warranty (tesco is ~£400 apparently) just in case

    I think the standard BOSE stereo has preouts so amp/sub is still possible yay!

    Any more plans?
