Things to look out for before buying an RX-8

Hello everyone.

I'm new to the forum and I have some questions that I think your experience and expertise can help me answer.

I'm not an 8 owner, not yet at least, but am looking forward to buy one. So I have spent countless hours on watching videos, reading threads and so on but I haven't found a "guide" on what to look out for before buying one. I'm not talking about hp, models etc. I'm talking about problems that an already used 8 might have.

​​​​​​I'm not considered about the engine becouse I plan on swaping it with a new one from the start.

But are there any other areas that the car "hurts"? Like body rust or differential failure that the previous owner may have "patched" just to sell the car and reappear again after a short time?

I want this car as a daily driver and fun at the same time. I know that it's engine is a lady that gets mad if you don't treat her well. I know that it uses a lot of fuel and some oil to run. I'm from North Greece (if that helps in any way) and im talking about the cosmo edition.

I would really appreciate some help.

Thank you for your time!
