    Question Newbie needs a little advice

    Hi I am looking into buying a Astra VXR or a RX-8 in a few months after I have saved enough money but I don't know which one is best to get

    Iv always had Vauxhall cars, Started with a corsa moved onto a 1.8i astra and at the moment a 2.2i Coupe.

    The Coupe is actually for sale at the moment ( http://www.pistonheads.co.uk/classifieds/1380480.htm )

    So I need a little help so I can make my mind up about which car.
    Thanx for any help!

    I would say the VXR personally. I do like the Mazda's actually but if anything goes wrong with it it'll cost you an absolute fortune. I reckon the astra VXR is a much better looking car anyway.

    Yeah I guess your right, I think ill have to go and give them both a test drive and see what there like.
    I know the VXR will be faster in a straight line because it has more power

    RX8 has the rotary engine which although is a good design needs the tips doing every 60k. In other words the whole engine has to come out and get rebuilt.
