    Default Test drove my uncles new purchase RX8

    Today my uncle purchased a late 2003, RX8 type S, 6 speed manual. it has 12k mileage only/scratchless. i loved the drive and handling. in search for new tyres now, 225/45/18
    (probably will have to get imported from karachi)
    i liked the seating position and the boot size of the car was pretty impressive.

    Learning about rotaries.
    Fully synthetic oils dont suit them.
    used the semi synthetic from shell for now.
    i came accross a useful link for rx8 owners
    service manual http://smrmicro.com/rx8servicemanual/1Info.pdf

    Unfortunately the RX8 is very expensive to maintain over all,as mentioned by hash its plugs retail for 12000 and its brake pads cost 16000 a pair,thats freaking expensive.but at the end of the day...its worth it
    knowledge is horsepower

    @hash congrats!!!!! how old is your uncle? I bought tyres for the corrolla from pindi a couple of days ago and that reminds me that I came across 225/45/18. I just looked at it from a distance and inquired if it was 15 but the shopkeeper replied no its 18. so I moved on to another shop and got 205/55/15 for corrolla. Please check.
    To all the extreme drivers, please come offroad like ME to keep others safe on the roads.

    Just a tip for RX8 owners.
    the oil filter of mini pajero and RX8 is same
    the mazda filter costs 1300 rupees while the mitsu one is for 275rupees.

    power is nice ofcourse and it handles nice.
    rx8 gives tamed power
    but the thrill of my pocket rocket is different, mainly because nobody expects so much from a little car.
    pocket give raw power
