Bigger pics and article at the linky above.
 
from the website all they said that was different was mainly some styling cue changes here and there ... it's pretty much like a 35th anniversary edition 350z to me, slight modification here and there with looks but w/o any significant powerplant/performance changes ... so pretty useless if u ask me :yucky:
 
I like this paint too
the leather color has changed, hasn't it ? :think:
 
Repost you fuck, it's the shinka edition, it's old news, I'm sure I posted it before!

Can I do it too? :tease: ehehe

Anyway, since you are the expert on RX8 matters, do you know if that tweaked suspension has anything to do with the European spec cars?
 
I've got no clue, but those are very minor improvements, I doubt it really makes such a difference..
 
Nissan Europe did some fine tuning on the suspension of the 350Z, and it was adopted all around the world, even in Japan, I think. So it would probably be worthy of further investigating.
If I decide for the RX8, I'll sure look it up further...
 
um yeah, well I wouldn't get a Shinka, I'm not a hge fan of the color and I prefer the sportier red/black/aluminium interior over this luxury looking beige/black/chrome one, and other mods are too subtle to notice..

I sat in one at the autoshow and looked at it and couldn't notice much difference, the "cromed" taillights is a joke.. and the "sightly lighter colored" wheels isn't noticeable unless you've got another set close by to compare

I prefer the regular one (231hp, of course), that's why I was asking about retrofiting the Shinka's suspension...
There's a black one near my other home, I'll try to take some pictures... It's only there at night, though.
