Technically speaking, on the colour spectrum black is considered a "shade" not a colour... so you are true to your words.

Haha, I never got into the styling of the RX8, it just looks like too many styles came together and crashed into one car.
But the drive, oh man that's a great driving car.
You are exactly right, it is so well balanced in the corners.
Flooding isn't an issue if you warm up the engine before shutting it off.
Never, I repeat never, buy an Auto RX8. That is heresy, like buying an Auto Miata!
The rotary will last a long time given proper maintenance, plus Mazda extended every RX8 engine warranty to 160,000kms.

I loved my RX8, beautiful handling car. Makes the E92 seem like a boat in comparison.

I do plan on buying one again in the near future and boosting the snot out of it. 2011 i will do it.

I still think the FD RX-7 is the best looking sub 100k car ever made

96 Supercharged Miata. Great handling car, indestructable, reliable, and the mod list is endless. You just can't fit a wife and carseat in at the same time as yourself.

I had a Z4M coupe for 2 years, before that an AUDI A3 sportback 3.2 DSG, not sure if you see the A3 sportsback a lot over in the states, bit small maybe
Z4M was amazing, such a beauty, such a beast, so challenging to drive fast... may she rest in peace

My 99 Cavalier. I still miss it to this day to be honest:




Ended up being sold looking more or less like this:


During the time with the Cavalier I picked up an 04 R6. Looked like the 1st pic when I got it, but ended up looking a little classier by the time i was done with it:


While I had the 04 R6, I picked up an Chrysler 300 (biggest mistake!!!)


While I had the 300 I picked up a 08 R6 which looked like this a week after I got it (minor mods):


currently looks like this:



And lastly, after a year and a half with the 300 I called it quits and ended up with what I should have bought in the first place (but couldnt afford at the time) 335i coupe:


After about 2 months of ownership:


And as it sits today in winter mode awaiting snow:

depends on how you view it....

IMMEDIATELY before, drove a 1994 Toyota Tercel, 4dr, 5spd....but that was only for a year coz i needed a beater after my 1995 Civic Hatchback died....drove that for like 10 years....

In my head, I drove the Civic before the e93.....

And NO, I didn't win the lottery, I just finally graduated......
