The original RX-8 imo is one of the best cars ever. I like the new rear lights and also that Mazda have only made subtle modifications to an already great car.

Agree we need pictures Laughing

Photos and review to follow.

The R3 is definitely a great motor - I previously tested the Mk 1 hi & low power versions and the UK only PZ - which was very impressive. For my mind the R3 is taking the PZ improvements and some new styling to give a car which is very good. I've thoroughly enjoyed my 8 days with the car and was sad to see it leave this morning.

I spent last Thursday at Milbrook testing allsorts of motors - including the new 5.2-litre R8 and the Nissan GTR and after all that got back into the Rx8 to drive home and wasn't dissapointed !
