Goodbye civic hello rx

I bought a horribly chavved up Honda civic vti-s ( very limited edition) for not much money and i decided that even though it only cost £1500 I wanted a change and as I rarely drive a car as I have a work van it didn't matter about petrol consumption.
I put the civic on eBay and offered it out for a swap or sale at 1500, after a few poor offers of vauxhalls and an old celica I was offered a 2003 rx8 so it old the guy to bring it down.
He had taken it in trade 4 days previous and didn't want to keep it because of the high running cost, so I agreed to a straight swap.
I now own a 2003 with polished deep dish alloys with black spoke alloys, full power flow exhaust, drilled and vented discs, full Mazda history and 59k on the clock.the body is almost flawless with 2 car park dents. I took it out for a test drive and I love it!!!!
No doubt I will be asking a few questions about sorting out the audio as the disc changer doesn't work but until the pn just thought I would say hi.

Get a compression test done on the engine. The early engines had lubrication problems. You might as well find out now, if the seals are damaged.
