    Did you buy it new/used, how much, and do you like it?

    I am thinking about really falling off the BMW wagon :eek4:

    My buddy bought a brand new 04, 650 a month with 5000 down and it was the base model. He's got bad credit though.

    you can lease them here for like $299/mo

    another example of how to save money if you can handle the mileage for leasing

    My Maxima lease is up next year and I have my eye on a 6 speed Sedan..

    My friend has one. I like the RX-8 a lot better. Much more fun to drive. Neck and neck in a straight line race. Handles and stops better. Looks better. Much bigger back seat.
    Better interior materials.

    And I paid $4,000 less than his G35.

    Mine will be 2 years old in one month exactly. Got the coupe. You can do an internet search for price. Don't like discussing money. Love her, but only wish I could keep her clean more.

    i would have gotten an 05 but I dont like the wheels and the drop in TQ wasnt worth the extra 15hp plus I like my brembos

    Don't want to get into a huge argument, but G35 and RX-8 are not neck-neck in straight line acceleration. Numbers show it. Give the RX-8 the thumbs up in the twisties though, due to it being lighter in weight.

    :coold:

    I am thinking a used one, because I hate the idea of ME eating the depreciation.

    No RX8s, I would spend half my income on gas :o

    you're lookin at 37k for a fully loaded manual. im assuming the Coupe, the sedan is much cheaper. also the 05 model has significant changes to the engine, interior, and some exterior changes.

    I'm looking at much less than that because I am not buying a new one. I have a mortgage that makes me cry every month :eek4:

    The 05s got like 30 more horsepower so they'll be faster but his 04 G35c and my 04 RX-8 are litterly side by side to about 90 unless one of us speedshifts, that's with launching my car at 5K RPM instead of the 7K which I've done :noes:

    Most magizines say they're the same.
    In fact Top gear tested the RX-8, BMW M3 and 350z track on a course and all 3 had the exact same time down to the 10th of a second.
