Yeup, since my accident with the sports bike over a year ago due to the deer I kinda lost the other purpose of having the truck for transporting it. While it did good practicality wise in sense to have all year long I wanted something for my adrenaline rush and traded it in for an RX-8. Only downside obviously was not as feasible to drive it during the winter as I'd hate to get snow on it so went and got a winter beater.

I looked over the WRX and Evo's but while they have great performance and are great for snow, handling wise through corners they got nothing on the 8 although I would of drove either of those all year long. Plus the 8 is unique as I hardly see anyone with them on the road ^_^. Just enjoy trying different things in life.

I'd definitely will eventually get a truck on the side down the road wherever and whenever I move next to in the country side.

Screw being normal

Yea but only on non winter roads, I'm not talking winter handling heh. Those cars are known to handle up top comparible to a Porsche, they're really good. Power wise they don't got much, especially on accel, but once you're past 1st gear they rev nicely up to 9-10k RPM. Definitely not a drag car if that's what someone buys them for. They are race car oriented for tracks, not drags.

I will say I get a lot of looks due to it. Got the smiling attention of quite a few wimmen at Okemo when I went to pick up a season pass a few weeks ago

You don't see a lot of RX8's because they are terribly underpowered and the engineers fell well short of what they were aiming for. Hell, they were even allowing customers to return the cars they were so bad.

Here's my accord. I'm not a honda guy by any means. I needed a car and fell into this one and I'm just thankful it's a 5 speed and I was able to snag the rack from my brother and got the board carrier on sale/clearance for $30. And if I need them I have a set of snow tires that I used on my old 91 Celicas.

They're underpowered in accel yes, but they still go faster through the corner than majority of cars in their divisions and easily lead in those classes. Turbocharging offers more power in the 300-400 whp range. Again, only those who want drag cars complain of the lack of torque. It's a car for people who love track based cars and not going in a straight line for 10 seconds.

As for the returns I'd have to say that's quite opinionated. The only issue has to do with the engine which comes down to maintenance and being a car enthusiastic to know what you're doing on them. It's not a DD car for the typical consumer who doesn't know a thing about rotary engines. Even for those who don't care to take care of them well there is an 8yr/100k mile warranty for all years up to this year for engine coverage.
