    new car content!! whoop whoop

    well after coming back from our honeymoon in brazil just friday morning.
    we had to set on finding a new car for 'the wife'

    her battered old rover 200d is almost dead, so the hunt was on

    after numerous different visits to view different cars..

    toyota mr2, smartcar roadster, and afew others

    we drove to derby today to put a deposit on this baby

    2004 rx8

    its amazing. such a great car!

    we pick it up thurday and we cant wait

    so astra stays for my daily, rx8 for the missus, but were both insured to drive both cars so its all good.

    comments always welcome

    anyway heres a couple pics...

    looks very nice, i do like the red and black interior. A guy at work uses his brothers when he is away and he cant say anything bad about them.

    only thing when i drove it it didnt seem 'that' fast. like i wasnt blown away like i thought id be.

    saying that, i only took it to 5k rpm. maybe they come alive 7-9rpm

    just hope the missus will think its too fast and then a car swap will be in order lol

    i wanna look into a remap, and i think thats it.

    but we'll see.

    the coupe has been returned to standard now (even with the ol 'v' grille) lol
    so i guess i may get itchy fingers with the rx8
