True BUT from what the dealership told me a few weeks ago, it's a limited run due to them being sold under cost :!: :?: :roll:

Lucky SatNav

I was incredible lucky to get my hands on it :D . From what the dealer told me, there are just 40 of them around. Anyways, don’t regret because I doubt if it is very user-friendly. No touch screen and hard to type in destination. I shall give more feedback once I actually use it. I deserve it because my road sense sux.

The good side of the story is, the maps are loaded from a DVD placed in the DVD-ROM. I am doing some research to hack it and make it play DVD’s. I think I am running out of luck there. :cry:

Hi guys

I've been a big fan of rotaries for a while now, but sadly I don't own one. And to top that off, I used to live in the 'Berra but now I've moved back north. I do, however, own something else that revs to 9 grand...

(G'day Will!)

Haha If they release a new RX7, I might think about getting a rotary :)

Hey guys, picked up my RX8 about 6 weeks ago, i got a black 08 luxury (cos they're aren't enough black rx8's in Canberra........3 in my building alone)

im keen to go for a cruise sometime, maybe no the eden one, prolly like the one you guys had on the anzac weekend

anyway, love the car, couldn't be happier about it (expect maybe the cost of the oil)

Welcome Dim!

There was talk between Nikoid and me in regards to a coffee cruise/photoshoot at some stage, keep an eye on the forum for details :)

While it sat beautiful but immobilized at the smash repairers (they flooded the engine while repairing some parking lot damage) a person who had to get out of the way of us pushing said bright red sports car completely forgot it was there 5 minutes later, and reversed right into it with a minivan.

This all happened on Friday afternoon, not a nice way to end a week and start the weekend :(

Though the guys at Reliance worked back late Friday evening to de-flood the engine for me, so mad props to them :)

What a shocker, the smash repairers smash cars instead of repairing them!!!
