I <3 rotary engines, but good luck if you blow an apex seal. Rotaries are not very common and not everyone will work on them. AND they're extremely pollutant.

Stick with the Prelude.

Re: My 99 Prelude

i think you should def. not get an rx8, those cars look like **** imo, but your the one who has to drive so do what you want, get what you like

Do you do any of your own maintenance? Higher mileage motors need a whole bunch of tlc but they will keep you moving.....

If you like the RX8 who cares what everyone else thinks. If I was worried about what everyone else thought all the time I wouldn't be anywhere right now..
