Its in silver, pretty sexy car, I might have to get one when I go off to college. 8)



If only it had a proper engine in it. :D



I'd loathe to be driving around sounding like I'm propelled by a hairdryer with wheels. :lol:

"I am anemic. Please feed me iron."

I think you deserve a ban... almost as sweet a sound as a two stroke :) barrp barrp barrp :thumbsup:



Are you deaf? :shock:
 
Not to be harsh or cheap towards Rennie boys' obvious and rather public love of the RX-8 but it does sound a bit weak at idle. You can kinda expect that seeing as its only a cute little 1.3 but what you dont expect is the amount of fuel it drinks cos its a rotary!

Road & Track had it in one of their 'Four Seasons' tests where they drove it round for a year and they averaged 19MPG! Also, you have to put oil in very frequntly and to do that you must REMOVE THE ENGINE COVER! They also had many other issues with the cars engine that required a rather hopeless Mazda service team to drive them insane for many reasons that you can read about here:

have you ever heard a tuned snow mobile or sth? it's pure addrenaline! especially since they make an insane amount of RPM, sometimes up to 25000!!
 
Rotaries are fantastic things, sound and performance wise. They just don't have such a good mid range, but as long as they're kept on the boil, zoom zoom.

I don't know if I'm allowed to say this but: BAN BAN BAN! :D

So Mr. Fugi Heavy Industries fanboi, when did Subaru win at Le Mans?

And no you can't use your rally successes as counterpoint. Mazda had the 323GTX for rally wins. :) Nothing this side of 19,000 Rpm (or the McLaren v12) sounds as good as a four rotar engine.

Trust me. :mrgreen:
