    After months of hunting for a good one, I finally bought an RX8 R3. :D

    For a 10 year old car, it's in great condition inside and out and has been well looked after by previous owners.

    It's had a few modifications - the rims have been sprayed black, the wing mirrors have been replaced with slimmer S1 mirrors, it's got a Cosworth air filter and it's currently running on 245/35 tyres as opposed to the standard 225/40.

    The driving position feels special, the Recaros hug you really tight and the unique engine sound of the rotary as it rises through the revs is amazing (and addictive!).

    I'll get some more pics up when it stops raining/hailing/snowing here in the UK and update the thread with any changes made to the car. :)

    Remember that it's the law that you must beeeep it at least once every trip.

    That's the great thing isn't it? You get in the car and you need to give it some wellie!

    As long as the engine's warm. If you already haven't ran out of petrol. :D

    It's my favourite version of the RX8, and it has the best color!
    Congrats!

    Ooh, I do like an R3. I still miss my 231, I don't miss the fuel and oil costs though :lol:

    My favourite too. Although Velocity Red looks surprisingly good in the flesh and especially in sunlight.
