You're saying you like the RX8, because it "fits your lifestyle". Okay, so you like a car that handles decently and is fun to drive; this is what you are considering a "lifestyle".

You then say you don't like "V8s" because they don't "fit your lifestyle" - when there are many, many V8-powered cars that fit in the exact same criteria - fun to drive, and affordable, therefore fitting your "lifestyle". This is where the confusion lies to us.

What you like and don't like is up to you - that's fine. But your explanations don't make a lick of sense.

I get your point but in terms of affordability the car has to be cheaper than 7k-8k and maybe some mustangs are around the price range but they are probably early 2000's and beat up and i would rather buy a 2010 rx8 for that price, and by lifestyle i was referring also to the fact about price, and my age being only 19 as of last week not just windy roads or "fun to drive" so i dont need a 500hp car at my age especially with the insurance i would have to pay for it.

Be Happy!

I was still playing Gran Turismo 2 when I was 19. Had about two dozen Skylines.

Need for Speed Underground was my jam when I was a kid. It's the whole reason I'm shopping around for a 2G Eclipse

I remember playing NFS 1, 2 and 3 on my friend's Pentium III (and Fifa 98 ) when they were new. Latest racing game I really invested time into was NFS: MW. Went through the entire game with my fully built Cobalt SS/SC lol. Even after I got the M3 GTR back, still rolled in the little Balt.
