I loved my RX8. Best handling car I've ever owned. Didn't like the 15-18 mpg though and not least it was around 2010 when fuel got to nearly £1.50 a litre. Spent £3k on fuel to do 8k miles for a year and lost £3k in depreciation. That still hurts to this day.

Like yours, a 55 plate for less painful tax too.

192 or 230bhp? Easiest way I found to tell was if there was headlight washers - more powerful one came with HIDs standard.

I would recommend Nike running gear in an encounter with one of these. ☺

Yeah, they're a bit scary, especially if your engineering know how is based in 1976.

But isn't that the point?
