purdue university

So I know there was an older thread about this but its been a few years so its likely they are all gone. So anyways the biggest reason I'm putting this is because I have lately seen a black rx8 that has been recently purchased in the same parking garage as me.(by hillenbrand hall.) So I was wondering if he/she has registered on this site yet. Just wanted to say hi. But also if the are any other members at purdue to say hi and maybe after the snow melts and its nicer we can meet up.

I actually took it to mikes this last time. But I dislike going there. I would rather wash it myself but between the cold and parking garage that's impossible. They have the underbody wash tho and my car needed that from the salt. Where do you live at BTW?

I think they all show up on a waiting list right now because the contract renewal is over. I was talking to the ladies over in smalley center though and they were telling me there is plenty of places still open in hilltop and some other dorms. Hillenbrand I know has been full for awhile though. I'm sure first street is the same way.

I might have to borrow that driveway lol. If you see a silver rx8 in your driveway don't worry. It's just me

I have a driveway and a 2 car garage that you guys are welcome to use for oil changes, or installing mods or whatever. I just like to meet other 8 owners and bullshit about cars or whatever.

Hey everyone,

I have a rather out of the blue question for you, but I am a Purdue student there and I got myself a nice internship that paid well. I was thinking of getting a RX-8. How did you guys and girls get yourselves your RX-8's? Are you paying payments on it? Or were u able to find a good deal on them? If so could you help point me in the right direction? lol I hope thats not to personal. I appreciate your help either way. Boiler Up!!

I actually paid for mine upfront. I have a goal to never get payments on something that will depreciate in value such as a car. But anyways I know most people are perfectly ok with getting loans on cars. And the rx8 shouldn't be difficult to get a loan on as it is still fairly new. As for getting good deals just search around. I found mine on craigslist in cincinnati (I know i butchered the spelling on that). So it depends on how far you are willing to drive. Be wary of craigslist. Occasionally there are scammers. Autotrader is a good site though. Also read the looking to buy sticky. Most important info is to get a compression test before you buy. Otherwise you could be looking at a new engine. They have an extended warranty 8 yr 100,000 miles on the engine core but you need to save your maintenance receipts. Anyways good luck finding a good deal. What year/ model are you looking for?
