Default RX-8
well last week when i was looking for a car i decided to stop at mazda. i got to sit in a 8. it was really cool. and i almost got to take it for a test drive. the sales rep was a chick and she was making it pretty obvious that she was hitting on me. the interior is really cool. i really like. but i have never sat in a 7.

yea rx8's are awesome, but I would rather buy a 3rd gen. I mean dont get me wrong if you want a brand new look and similiar power to an fd with warranty then go ahead. But if you want to take it a step further then there goes the waranty. And I know Mazda is gonna keep a close eye on every warranty repair. Plus the $30k pricetag doesnt help much.

Personally, I still like the design of the RX7 more than the 8. But the RX8 is a look that grows on you.

Your right Finchy...the RX8 does need to grow on yea, it looks great but small to me compared to the 7 3rd Gen. I really like both but do think the 7 3 Gen style looks better. Well for now anyways..

Yeah, I like the 3rd gen the best. It's a rare car where I live. Seen one RX7 ever. But have seen a few RX 8s driving around.

You are right...I to don't see many around here either. I think that the 3rd gen 7's are sleaker looking then the 8's..

Finchy...you thinking about getting one?

I didn't like the RX8 when it first came out. Now that the engine specs are worse, I like it even less.

I'd rather drive a Saturn.
