:D I prefer a plate that's inconspicuous and hard to remember. 8)

If I thought I could get away with caking it with mud (while leaving the rest of the car spotless) I would! :twisted:

Having said all that - RENESIS is a classy choice. :D

Why don't you get the Green plates with white writing, they're practically unreadable :lol:

Meshed the grill in black or stainless? Guess I'll see on Sunday.

Black front on, and stainless if seen sideways! It's a pretty cool effect.

Wheels: End of the year. Exhaust: When somebody makes one which has a significant power gain!

Thanks for that...I guess I will stand out now....have always been inconspicuous... guess now I have LOOK AT ME plates....but hey the cars insured and if the new screws that our motor reg are doling out work no one will be able to get them off the car....

The dealers here have the RX8 plates sewn up so I thought my choice might become valuable at some stage and seeing as ROTORQUEEN wouldn't fit and was a bit "Kath n Kim" :lol: :lol:

Now all I have to do is wait....till they make them 10 days and counting!

My mesh front arrived today...so can cover up my poor little oil cooler that has got a little bent fin already :cry:
Found my first paint chip on the weekend...right in the rotor indent in the bonnet... :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Then I found yellow paint blobs from the War Departments painting exploits on his Alfa :x :x :x One on the front wheel and one on the front drivers wing.....only small...I had to laugh as he was being careful and only walking past the car!! God forbid had he been careless the car could have ended up as GMH Yellow Devil.....A colour I like actually... :P :P

As he managed to dent the Honda while driving it....I made fun of his painting exploits...he looked mortified and hurried to the shed to get the polish......but I assured him that they were only little blobs and they could stay!! Aren't I nice !! ??
Sadly my rotor days are coming to an end.....gone back to the piston dark side..... Will fuel ever be below $1 a litre again?

I was thinking about getting COMPNS8... hehehehe

Check out "What not to drive" by Richard Hammond for a pretty funny take on personalised plates (and an all round amusing read).

I've already found my first scratch. Right by the driver side handle. I swear I didn't put it there :(
