Consider Bmw Or Infiniti/nissan —

very light car that handles very well but has very low low-end torque. the transmission is also too close so expect to cruise in top gear revving at 4k going 70mph. i would love to drive a turbo version of this car. as for maintenance it gradually uses up the oil as you drive so make sure to top off every thousand miles or less. build quality seems fine at first but after a car accident the car never felt the same. it was more of an annoyance than a pleasure to drive like it used to be. also the synchro mesh on 2nd gear started to show signs of wear while shifting in high rpms after only about 8000 miles. good thing theres a 4 year warranty for this though i have yet to take it in. this is a very pretty car and i often get compliments on it though i do think the rear taillights are a bit too crazy looking. i think this car is great in appearance even stock though there are alot of potential for modifications. the interior is decent with leather but the back seats are a pain to sit inside if you're any taller than 5 foot 6. and the lack of an ipod connection annoyed me when they are so common in every vehicle. this car is A GAS GUZZLER. a 1.3L rotary gets LESS mpg than 3.5L V6 from nissan. taking only premium and consuming engine oil, be ready to empty your wallet everytime at the pumps. casting the negatives aside, driving fast in this car is so easy when the car does everything you want without fighting back. the car just grips and doesnt lose traction unless you really try to but when the back swings out its quite difficult to control. all in all i think this is the car for people who are educated in rotary engines as it is a hassle to maintain, but fit for any type of driver.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 10k rev limit, great handling, great looks, very light

Cons: owned by FORD, very low torque, ridiculous gas mileage (avg 16)

Rx8 — Handles very well. Acceleration needs work but it's definitely good enough for day-to-day driving. I think it looks good. Fuel economy is really bad though. I get about 7.5km/l!!! Road tax is super cheap lar! Interior is pretty well built for a jap car but it can be a little small for bigger people.

Pros: Great handling

Cons: Not the most eco-friendly car

Mazda Rx-8 — i love this car car the only thing i don't like about it is that it needs snow tires for the winter. The price for these vehicles are pretty reasonable so of the option are a little pricey but what can you do. the car is a blast to drive.

Pros: fast and fun to drive

Cons: needs snow tires for winter

Little Ricer Space Ship — Well I bought this on a whim, I had never owned an import and I thought I should give em a chance. Sporty, excellent ride and comfortable plus probably the best gauges/displays I've seen. Cornered on rails. Rear drive rotary power. Nice right? Well....depends. Cant start the car then run it for 5 seconds then shut it off cause it will flood for next time you start. VERY inconvenient. Has to be towed to the dealer every time. Had power but only in the high RPMs. But the worst is if you live in a winter state or Canada - forget it, these things are so light and rear driven that you cannot get traction in 1inch of snow. Maybe rear winter tires would have helped? It felt like you were driving a super car from the future, just not in a snowstorm.

Pros: Fun to drive - in summer, excellent front seating and gauges.

Cons: Rear seat only for kids or adults under 5'5.  Do NOT drive in snow.

What I Wanted — Gret machine. Have no issues with the performance at all. The only downside is that you CAN NOT change the factory headunit easily. its attached to the HVAC controls.

Pros: Handling, acceleration

The Mazda RX-8 was still going through some tweaking, and in time the RX-8 would become the car worthy of the RX name. The rotary engine, is the engine of the future. Read More
