Oh what a car. this is what I wanted to buy. But had to buy a Nissan maxima to be able to seat the inlaws.The RX-8 is the best handling car that I have ever driven ,sub 40k USD stuff that is . A 70 mph 90 degree turn is cake walk for this beauty. and the engine. drool drool. as rev happy as a motorcycle engine and with decent torque to boot.

One goodie machine!! Nice find!
Had an option of trading my Mazda 3 in for the 2007 RX-8,but when I realized how the cost of Premium fuel is rising,I decided to let go of the idea.

Nice...it'll need an engine rebuild though after 50k miles or so. Chances are it won't be driven as much so nothing to worry about ! Nice

Wrong, if you use the car for long runs wwhere the engine warms up and oils get to lubricate the rotor tips, it will last longer.

Short trips are a killer for the RX8, one needs to monitor oil consumption more closely
