nicnic Yeah thats too bad... The RX8 just dosen't compare...
26 Jan 2011
Evan Those who watch Initial D (years before) will love the RX7 to bits. But the fact is it's so hard to maintain. It literally "drinks" engine oil!
26 Jan 2011
nsm can't really compare the RX 7 and 8. The 7 was built for speed but mazda introduced the 8 so that they had something more pratical for daily drivers

I was looking through some Lexus LFA 4.8 photographs and spotted this anomaly.

Hi Guys, any recommendation for dampers and coil for my ride?

4 Jan 2011
