well finally found a deal that was worth it and traded in the RX8 for a beautiful 2009 Vista Blue 5spd coupe. I gotta say the changes from 08 to 09 are incredible. bumper, grill, lights; all looks so much better. already have plans for tint, niteshade tails, eyebrows front, stereo (deck-installed today, speakers, sub), springs, intake and rear window spoiler. will have other stuff on the way soon too, but these are things I want done first. Anybody wanna trade the wheels for some 17's or 18's?

Traded in an RX-8 for a focus? Nothing against my car, but if I had an RX-8, I wouldn't trade it in on a focus as there's no comparison in speed. But anyways, yes! We need pics!

shame you didnt get the stock 17 inch wheels....but congrats on the 09 coupe. I love it
tryin to keep cost down as much as possible on it. and i plan on changin almost everything on the car anyway, so no point in paying for things that i'm not gonna keep

I am going to tell you that i hate you... Six months after i got my 08 coupe they started coming out with this much nicer looking one. I have a fully loaded 5sp SES. And its value went down too much to trade it in, so i am going to hopefully upgrade it to all that stuff, especially the front bumper.

Good choice though man it looks nice

i don think anyone can stand a 1.3L engine drinking that much gas...
but RX8 is a sweet car... and fast car...
i would still love one...

my hope is... RS is coming out soon after I move to Austria...
so that I can have one powerful turbo focus...

I hate yellow lights. all front lights will be white r with a blue tint (hyper whites)

Glad they did update it. the new stuff makes it look alot more sporty with dark chrome.

Yeah I loved the RX8, but it drank gas like a college girl on spring break in new orleans. and it was fast, but needed more power (especially torque) for the weight.

Looks good though. I love the interiors on the '08's and '09's.
