Plz don't do this to yourself. The RX-8 is a money-pit. I considered one long and hard (heh), too. Too many issues, maintenance is a paint, and it's just a bad first car. ESPECIALLY a 2004. The 04-06 had a ton of engine consumption issues, and many engines went boom. They fixed most issues from 2007 upwards, but it's still a high-main engine, and definitely not what I would want in a first car.

If you like the RX8 by all means get it, just know there are better choices out there.
If you want a Mazda get a Miata. You will have a lot more fun.

How is the RX7 then?
A rotary engine is a piston engine with radially arranged cylinders. It differs from a radial in a number of ways, the most interesting to me being that the engine itself rotates about the crankshaft.
A Wankel has been called a rotary by countless many for decades, because it has rotors. They are all wrong. I alone am right. So there.
Note that I oppose Wankels on moral, ideological, aesthetic, metaphysical, spiritual, and philosophical grounds. They are lacking in what Ignatius J. Reilly calls "taste and decency."
Seems to be a great deal of misconception floating around here about the Renesis engine... How many of you have owned an RX-8?
