I'm making more then 3 or 4, i've found i'm gonna make somewhere around $10,000... I've pretty much made my decision to strip out my system and intake, sell them (anyone interested in an $250 AEM cold air intake?), trade in my car, and get something with more balls.. looking at RX-8's and other $30,000 sports cars with manual transmissions.

why dont you want to keep your focus. i think the focus are great cars. ive never had any types of problems with mine not even with my old 2001 se. i guess the only real problem i can say i had and have on my new car is that the brakes make some noise but thats about it.

why blow all your money on a new RX-8? i personally think they're ugly, but that doesn't matter. it would make mroe sense to buy like a used RX-7, 3000GT VR-4, hell, even a 240sx and work on it. you'll get way more bang for your buck, new cars are the biggest rip-offs out there.

i'm tired of old, used cars... i started out with a granny-mobile.. then bought a new 02 hatchback..

the focus is a good car, i love mine to death, but i've gotten to a point where the lil 130 hp 4 bangers aren't enough to satisfy my need for speed.... i want a real car. and i wanna buy it new without help...

and after test driving the RX-8.. i fell in love with it :) also, i'm sick of driving an automatic.. i want a 6-speed.

I hear you on the automatic. That is a very good point. Also, I feel you on the need for a RX-8. That's on my wishlist!

it was high on my wishlist, too.. have you test driven one yet? nothing beats the sound of a Rotary 2 engine reving at around 9000 RPM's [thumb]

i just happen to be one of the lucky ones who'll be able to afford one when i get back

The 350Z is a nice lil ride. I've driven a couple of them and I was impressed......pretty comfortable too. Haven't had the chance to drive the new RX.....I'm not fond of the styling anyways, but get whatever the hell you want. If you like it, and you think it's fun to drive, that's all that matters.

Yeah, i got into a 350Z, too.. was thinking about getting one of those, too.. but it doesn't have as much legroom as the RX-8... personally, i think the RX-8 has more stuff that i like about it than the 350Z, though it was a close call...
