    i think its a nice looking car, a bit underpowered to say the least but it looks sporty and its whatever a person likes.

    Thanks guys, i had tried to find a trans am, but couldnt get one with low miles in good condition for a good price, so i went else where, tried many cars, and just loved this one

    So who is faster?
    RX-8 vs. Monte Carlo.

    Thats not a true SS...Blah, but as said before different choices for different folks. Clean looking car, and its hard to find what you want for the right price. I've been looking for a while now, think I'll just wait for a little while.

    I heard that RX-8's are expensive to work on. I would still take one though.

    I joined an RX-8 forum and they give you the best way to work on the car...no no ricer crap.
    After a few bolt ons, you need to dyno it. Then move on to serious mods, but dyno after each. Then the turbo/supercharge, or you can even add rotars from what i hear.

    Yes they are expensive to work on, but then again, it can add to the fun of having a fast car...if you do work on it.


    its "cute"

    coulda been worse...it coulda been a miata

    what makes you say this... the logos look correct... its got the red open bowtie on it... seems to have body colored script (it doesnt look shiny and chromy to me)... its not like the whale tale is the only spoiler available on an ss... although the ss on the passenget side is too far back making me think that its added, but he could have removed the monte carlo and scooted the ss back... exhaust looks aftermarket, but thats common.... Wheels might be a give away, but im pretty sure those wheels are available on ss's...

    or was that a crack about how its not a "REAL SS" like it should have an ls1 in it if the want to call it an ss?

    Edit: and if it is a crap about it being a v-6 poo on you... i think its better to have the biggest engine available in a car than it is buy a car that you pretend is a v-8... *cou- base camaros, firebirds, mustangs-ugh*

    It's a cute chick car. You should have no problem with the chicks cause they will think it is cute. But the T/A would have had panties dropping.

    sorry to rain on your parade.... but 2 kids at my school one being my friend had the new Renesis Rx-8 powerplants blow up more than once. MY friends went 3 times and mazda gave him his money back, but they wernt because they said he voided the warranty w/ a borla cat-back. Nice car once you get up to the higher rpms... But just watch those motors man. I hope you have a good time w/ it. NICE FIRST CAR BY THE WAY. i got a blazer and am "forced" to an LS1 swap by myself.....

    Stop busting the dudes balls...I would have loved to have that car when I was 17. If you're still in high school...you're gonna get soooo much poon just for having that car. How much did you pay for it? You'll probably line up with a LS1 one of these days...you're gonna wish you bought a higher mileage TA But least you have a warrenty...and a nice car. Who knows...maybe you'll do a LS1 swap in that thing...would be awesome.
