  1. Hi Steven, I only just saw this. Ok, thanks. I will give you a call asap. Thanks. John
  2. Hello Steven, Welcome to the site. Would you also offer quotes for more modern Mazdas? Mine is a 2008 RX-8. 4 years NCB. Age 35. Airline pilot. No penalty point. I had a Series 1 RX8 and just bought a Series 2 and my brokers just quoted me 930 Euros when previously it was 630 (as a named driver). Regards, John.
  3. Hi Chazz, Sorry about that. I've just sent you another PM now. Let me know if you get it. Regards, John.

  7. Re: cheap rx8 Hi Cliffo, How many miles/km's in total has the car done? Regards, John.
  8. Re: RX-8 Torque Sensor (steering) needed. Any ideas? Thanks Nuggy, much appreciated. That's a very helpful thread. Regards, John.
  9. Hello there, First Post here. I have a Japanese import '03 RX8 (High power model). It has recently developed steering problems with the Electric Power Steering (EPS) namely light 'juddering' at low speed when turning the wheel left and right. My local garage man hooked it up to his diagnostic computer which revealed that the Torque Sensor is faulty. I have learned that this can sometimes be caused by water from the coolant overflow pipe damaging the 'intermediate' connectors which run from the torque sensor itself back up to the EPS unit- I have performed a continuity test between these tw
