Subject really says it all. I haven't ordered yet because I'm 1) saving for my wedding that's this September, and 2) wrestling with selling my Subaru...I want AWD, but the RX-8 would be supa-fly to have
Just curious to see how may of you have ordered, and also wondering if there's any indication from Mazda what their preorder tally is looking like.

Just like this one.....i am planning on getting black with the interior having red accents, maybe tint the windows... but then as performance parts become available i will be adding them, you cant be all talk and no walk ya know? and yes the wing will have a purpose, I'll be AutoXing and it'll help keep the rear end planted heres a pic of the wing spoiler
well, the interior sounds nice...accents are ok if you don't go too nuts with them.
Your spoiler tho man...we gotta talk. That spoiler is sooooo...well, it's pretty ricey, but like, for autox, how fast do you get going? Chances are that it won't have much of an effect unless you're doing 80+, and I didn't think autox events got that fast. I mean, by the same logic you'd be getting a diffuser and deflectors on the front to keep you planted...it's not a LeMans car :/
Well I feel that this car is Rice Exempt BECAUSE.....1) it can do over 100 mph, easily, without strain. 2) Because the exhaust will not exceed exuberant levels and the sizing of the exit will not be able to house a family of four. 3) It is RWD 4) I will actually be doing 100+, I plan to go to Lime Rock as soon as the weather is nice enough to do so.
im in the same boat as jgard, gotta check out the evo first.. and i'd rather wait till it's out for a bit.. after the initial rush it will die down and it will be easier to deal with the dealers.. im expecting them to get pretty cocky considering this is the first car in a while people will be willing to pay for. same exact thing happened when the wrx came out.. im not paying the 'first owner of the block' tax on something that will depriciate like crazy..
Well, i think i'll be able to devise something so that if and when i get the chance to go to Watkins Glen or Limerock I can put one on so that i do get some actual aerodynamics (and im taliing about a spoiler that can be adjusted, not one of those silly plastic or fiberglass ones.) Well see though.
Its also RWD, and its gonna have a Manual Transmission, and its gonna NO BODY KIT, NO MIRROR TINT, AND THE ALTEZZAS ARE GONNA GET CHANGED, AND ITS GONNA GET LOWERED THE RIGHT WAY (dont cut your springs ever ever ever)
I went down to my local Mazda dealership here in Toronto and put my $500.00 down for an RX-8. I was seriously considering a Miata SE (love the yellow) but once I saw the RX-8 at the auto show I was totally sold. The salesman told me that it could be in as early as Febí03 but I donít want delivery until April (Canadian winters being the way they are).
I cannot believe that I have to wait a year.
Save a tree, eat a beaver... :p
The dealer could not tell me very much at this time, but the one thing that he did tell me was that they would not charge me more than MSRP. They claim Mazda Canada has told them that their dealership will have a quota of three cars for the first year, they also said that based on past history they typically receive twice as many of limited edition cars as their original forecasted quota.
They are expecting the base rx8 will come in just under $40,000.00 CDN with two option packages being available, one of them including an automatic transmission.
Iím not sure what colours will be available to choose from but I think that yellow, black or red would look great! Iíve already had three silver cars so that is out of the question.
Itís just a matter of time now.
Save a tree, eat a beaver... :p
well your dealer is pulling your leg. The car isnt "limited" edition. Its full production. It MAY be hard to get due to initial demand, however Nissan may take some of the wind out of that sail with the Pre-Order push for the 350Z. But a quota on a full production car seems rather fishy.
my dealer took my name and info and is going to call me when the exact price and details come in.....but im first on that list anyway. this dealer is huge and they don't have info on the car yet...how are you putting money down on a car that hasn't released any info on...
