    Default Stop me

    Working last night and had to go to a job next to a Ford dealers. They had a black Mazda RX8 in black with full red/black leather interior. It's up for an excellent price and I'm getting 'urges'.

    By sheer coincidence, the wife saw an RX8 advertised on TV today and said " I really like that". Bear in mind, she has no interest in cars at all!

    I'm keep reminding myself 18mpg...18mpg....18mpg. I know I shouldn't but.....help!

    Nice car dude, but i think they are starting to age already, there is something about the front wheelarch which puts me off them, have a look at one from behind and look down the car, it seems to stick out an awful lot ...

    I'm not that rich. I'd have to sell one of the kids to buy the Mazda. Just dreaming really, couldn't afford the mpg and would probably cry at the p/x price of the Vec

    This is what I was looking at last weekend. They had a 2 year old one for 14500. Very tempting. Went out on a test drive in the 190 version which doesn't rev as high as the 231 version. Was a bit unnerving when I banged into the rev limiter which is set before the red line on the rev counter!!!

    Damn capable cars.... but thirsty on oil and petrol.

    I still don't trust the Wankel engine.. They never had a particularly long life in the RX7.. Servicing was a big deal as well..Smooth engine when they're right..But a wrong un??

    Here's another temptation. Here you have to think a mantra of 'fuel bills, insurance, 4,500 mile service intervals...' !
