      Ha, I remember these! When I was a kid, a schoolfriend's neighbour had one. All white, with the black 'RANGER' vinyl graphics along the side.

      The very fact the software developers called it 'cheese factor', complete with comic-style pizza slice icons, shows they at least have a sense of humour. :) I suspect there was a lot of eye-rolling...

      The number from the battery you looked up may not have been a part number, but a JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) classification type. If it looked something like the format 75D23L - i.e. two...

      Original factory Panasonic battery in my RX-8 lasted 7 years. :thumbup:

      The 'premium' Exide I replaced it with is on it's way out now after only 4 years. :thumbdown:

      It's not a sales tax, but a vehicle operating tax (people generally refer to it as 'road tax', but it actually has little to do with funding road infrastructure). Think of it as more of an annual...

      Don't forget to factor into your 3,000 budget the road tax for your chosen car, and the likelihood that you'll need to put it through an annual inspection test at least once if you're going to own...

      Yes, very much this. Only a rotary specialist (or a well-equipped enthusiast) will be able to do a compression test properly. It requires a specialised electronic rotary compression testing tool. It...

      No, they are stiffer than the Series 1 RX-8s. They have the Bilstein suspension that the 40th Anniversary models had.

      Be aware if looking to use an R3 for daily use is that the cloth Recaros don't...

      No, there is a grille. You just can't see it very well in that pic. Here's a closer view:

      A lot of these examples don't look so awkward when there's a license plate mounted.

      I think a lot of manufacturers actually design so it looks best when there's a front plate. But, seeing as the...

      I just searched on LeakedSource for my username, e-mail and even IP address, and it turned up absolutely nothing. :sly: :confused:

      I think it basically comes down to a couple of things: a) does the manufacturer want to invest in the production costs required, versus the return expected from relatively limited sales in RHD...

      If I recall correctly, the remark from her was "The suspension is awful, like a Ferrari. [The Viper] has so much more grip than this piece of <bleep>". So, she was comparing it to a Ferrari, but only...

      I thought it was okay. There were things that were great, and things not so great. Sure, it was a little awkward, but then if you go back and watch the very first episodes of the Clarkson, Hammond...

      The bearings on my secondary air injection pump are worn out, and occasionally my car makes a "beowwwwaaaaiiieeeeeeeeeeeeee" at startup as the pump motor spins up. Sounds like a cross between some...

      Wow, that welding! Looks like someone gave a 5 year old a welder and told them to have fun. :laugh: And not a lick of seam sealer to be seen. I assume all that water inside was because the thing...
