Don't be stupid, use premium grade fuel only. 10-20 cents less per gallon is not worth losing your engine over.
RX-8's are reliable cars.
Do not drag race this car, you will be embarassed. Take it to the track or an autocross course, and you will be amazed. Or any twisty road for that matter. This car was born to turn.
Stock brakes tend to squeal even after the slightest bit of wear. Aftermarket Brembos solve this.
There aren't many mods that add serious power, unless you go forced induction.
Stock tires are just okay (Dunlops), they have good grip, but tend to lose their grip rather suddenly without any warning. In the rain this is exaggerated even more, and you will slide the tail slightly.
Keep an eye on the oil level. I check every weekend to be safe.
Last but not least, ENJOY the car. This car loves to rev, loves to be run and hates traffic.
No longer an RX-8 owner, but still a rotard at heart.
