oh okay. when i was getting rid of the 8 i searched and searched to find the best car i can get for the money and it was between evo x, 09 wrx, 09 sti, 370z, RX-8 R3, and a Genesis. i narrowed it down to the evo and wrx/sti only because they are awd and the winters have been really bad lately here in nj. then the prices of the evo x and sti were so much money i decided for the same amount of power i can get in the sti i may as well just get the wrx and i love the car but i miss the 8 lol

Those are a good list of cars there just out of my price range...My insurance is gonna go crazy high and it was already high for the rx8 alone...I dont think i could stand a more expensive car and my insurance practically doubling

Yeah... might be worth it to spend some time in the "Hot Hatch" category until your insurance cheapens up. GTI or MSpeed3, older focus SVT, I don't think Subaru interiors are very nice considering the price, my opinion though.

Good suggestions. Another tactic is to go for an interesting but much older car, say ~10 yrs, that is worth so little you can self-insure as far as collision coverage is concerned until you go long enough from this accident that you are no longer in the higher-risk category. As an extreme example, I bought a 10 y.o. Audi Quattro for $1500 and ended up liking it so much, I drove it for 12 years! That saved many thousands of $$ in insurance money that I didn't have to pay.

Is insurance not compulsory in the states?? What if you hit someone else and it's your fault? Where does that person stand?

Third party liability and collision coverage policies are not required in all States. Each state has its own laws on insurance. California is mandatory, but not all of them.

Not sure if anybody mentioned this yet because I don't feel like reading 5 pages of this thread, but this crash has got to be on the top 3 list of most smashed up 8 you've ever seen before. This looks worse than the 8 that was ran over by a tank at a military base...

By the way, how scratched up is your shift ****? I'm trying to replace mine and I'll buy yours off you if it's in mint condition
