Looks good though and can't argue for that price on fitting!

The bits you have to import from America really. Over here, the Front Dam is £250 in primer alone! Side deflectors are £150, Hoop spoiler is £140, Front mud guards are £60 and rear deflectors are £75. Thats all in primer so £675 without fitting or painting. ive effectively paid £535 imported, painted and fitted.

I know that the yellow RX8 and the Nordic Green RX8's were only made for two years, I dont know how many of those there are, but the Evolve was sold for 2 months at 100 blue 400 red. So it may very well be the rarest over here!

Love how the colour isnt in your face and you wouldnt know its a limited edition colour without knowing your RX8's.

Cheers Spener!

Best thing is, when the sunlight truly hits the paintwork, thats when you see how special it is;

Looks great in the dark with low light too;

And thats what I like about it, its abit of a sleeper. People notice it but dont realise how rare and unique it is, but in the RX8 community the colour is often admired.

Maxxd has a stand at Trax right? In preperation, im having under the bonnet dressed up abit. A guy who works for AMG Mercedes painting the F1 cars is dong some custom work for me on my engine cover, he's done a few guys' RX8 engine covers, and if anyone wants to see his work I implore you to ask and Ill link you to his stuff, its phenomenal.

Ordered a Ronnie Rotory plush toy, 'warning' sticker and some disney cars style blue eyes windscreen shield.

Im also going to get the front anti-roll bar painted, ecu, battery and airbox top painted in phantom blue aswell. Also going to try sourcing some bonnet lifters aswell. All thats needed outside is just a paint correction and then she is in effect, fully customised.

Yes mate we have a stand at trax, we will be teaming up with the PJC boys and girls too so we have a big area! And we will be taking all our marquees flags and banners, will be a good place to be!

Plans sound good, I'm a sucker for a good Engine bay, so many people neglect it and when done right its a great feature of the car!
