I don't see them too often. Only one I've noticed around here is a ti grey lowered on stock powder coated wheels. Also see a black one dropped on black rims as well. Not to many modded ones around here.

I actually know of some people wanting to do an RX-8 run in Orlando, meet up and ride and stuff. If he sets a date, we should definitely meet up and ride that way.

I've never driven a standard 8 so I can't compare the two. But I love my auto 8. I never drive in the regular auto mode. I'm always driving in shiftronic manual everywhere I go. Most people think its a 5 speed Lol. 7.5kRpm redline is still prettysweet though. somehow the way i manage to shift mine i end up shifting at 8krpm. I did this on my last transmission and it trashed it . New trans and redline fluid is in her now. Runs awesome. The 0-60 is pretty shitty, however anywhere between a 20-60mph roll and this thing keeps up with integras civics and what not. But the thing still corners like its on rails. Just wish I could get this thing to rev to 7500rpm quicker than what it does.

Haha true that. Should be a blast. I'll really know how they compare then. I was thinking of trading up but to big of a gamble for an engine that could **** and be stuck making payments on a very pretty paper weight. If I trade up, I'm probably going to a 02-03 wrx

I was thinking of going forced induction but way to much money for such little reward
