2004 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)

Review

Aside from premium gas and modest mpg this has been a great car. I customized to a full Mazda Speed Version + others suspension/computer mods. Comared to a std/ RX8 a real head turner. No mechanical problems. Big Racing Heart tires/very low profile makes the agility of this vehicle striking. Floats well over 120mph; probably due 150+; Canadian computer adds about 50 horsepower. Red. Just went to the 2008 Auto show in KC, Mo. Nothing except Vettes/Viper to compare. Not for everyone. Takes an astute enthusiast to see the subtle wonders of this speedster. If you can afford to do the Mazda Speed Package it makes it a totally different car + racing wheels, suspension etc. Add $15,000. Std 6 speed.

Best Features

Agility/suspension; high rev engine; stick; paint job; mazda speed package; brakes; steering.

Worst Features

Turbo or supercharger. Analog dash. Better mpg; regular gas.
