2007

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RX-8 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It was sent in for a new clutch, but all else seems to be ok. I can work on my own cars but this is a whole new world.
