    i cant remember exactly why they didnt turbo the RX8. They are nice cars, im pretty impressed. They could have gone a little more RX7 looking, but overall i like it.

    I am waiting a few years, house and stuff comes first. Plus im going back to school in a few months. Gives them time to get the bugs out of it anyway. I wonder how many Rotary Xperiments (RX) they will do hehe.

    The new RX8s are so sweet! I get excited even when I see cars like that on the road, but the best is when they're parked in the parking lot for me to gauk at them. Like one time I stood there and looked at someone elses brand new Supra; it was awesome! Yup, yup.

    How much would it cost to have all of this stuff in a car like you're talking about? I don't know much at all about cars....I drive a crown vic with a V8 engine; that's all I know lol.

    Like if someone was going to build a car like you guys are talking about, what would be the total price? Just gimme a ballpark estimate.

    I paid 18,500.00 for the car in 2001 and its a 1993. It had 80k miles on it and was in awsome condition, i got a good deal. The total loan cost was 40,000.00 because i knew i wanted to modify it. Right now, including the purchase price, i have used all bout 500.00 of that loan, and im using that 500.00 tword its payment.

    So basically i have a really nice car, but i'll be paying for it for a long time. At the current moment i pay 800.00 every four months.

    People who "supe" up civics are gay. When it comed down to it, it's still a little 6 cillender (sp?) honda...

    civics are 4cyl, and yes, they are idiots. For the cash u spend to make a civic fast, u could buy a car that already goes that fast and make it faster :P

    exacltly, i drive a '92 talon TSI AWD. i cant even count the number of "done up" hondas ive smoked. (not to mention acura's and even a couple of mustang GT's) i only paid $8,500.00 CDN for my car

    people just dont understand whats going on when i drop the clutch at 5000rpm and my tires dont spin (lovin the AWD) then once my turbo kicks in im gone. i only get around 15 PSI though, must be nice to push over 30 RoD.
