Just bought a RX8 and looking for advice.
« on: May 01, 2011, 11:44:25 AM »
Hi Guys
Ive just bought a RX8 and also new to MRC.
The car ive bought is on a 56 plate with 25,000 miles. I took a m8 of mine with me who has had a RX7 so we kinda knew what to look for.
 
with the knowledge we have there are no signs of any water coming from the exhaust or the coolant light being on which could indicate coolant leaking into the engine because of a rotor tip being broken.
 
Im just wondering if there was anything else i needed to know, ie compression testing to make sure there is nothing wrong with the engine?
 
Any advice would be greatly recieved as i pick the car up on tuesday.
Thanx
Alex

I\'ll leave the technical advice to the others but welcome to MRC! :wave

So what spec is the RX-8? Any mods?

Look forward to seeing some photos when you pick her up.

Good colour, worth looking at the RX8 owners club site for the detailed FAWs and the like.

Apparently putting details of your car spec in your signature means the nice folks on exile-rotorsport think you\'re a fool.  I can think of no higher compliment!
