How about this angle, the RX-8 could actualy raise the prices of all the the older models due to the fact that Mazda are about to explain all the wonderfull qualities  of the Rotary and this should have a knock on effect through the older models and bring prices up .

All the Best Clive.

I hope not :eek: :D

Cheers guys, I\'ll have a gander at some 1st gen quotes...

Merry Christmas ;)



Some of you may remember that I\'m biding my time until I\'m 21 before subjecting myself to a 3rd gen RX7. Thing is, I don\'t really wanna jump in one unprepared

My original plan, as I\'m selling my mini for a house, was to buy a land rover for up to 2.5k. Reasons for this is that it won\'t devalue over the year that I keep it, could come in useful for a first time house buyer (shifting sofas etc) and is fun in it\'s own way.

But, in my infinite wisdom, I\'ve just thought about perhaps buying a 2nd gen RX7? They did a non-turbo version of them didn\'t they? Would this be overly expensive for a 19 year old to insure.

I was kinda thinking this might give me experience of rotary, and rear wheel drive without sitting 20ft in the air.

Any thoughts :confused:

ps. i hate you im 19 and want an rx-7 3rd gen:mad:

yup... I\'m 19 too and whilst I can afford the car, I can\'t afford the bloody insurance - ryb2001, who are you with?

My brother has got an E36 M3 and whilst I\'m not expecting a standard RX-7 FD to be faster, it should keep up.

Actually wait, can\'t afford the car, I\'m buying a house :rolleyes:

But next year!!

Still 19 at the moment, just phoned adrian flux, they said around 6k... less than expected but still just a tad high ;)

I\'ll be sticking with the rattly mini for another year and a bit yet then :(

That was the UK spec turbo though ;)

Everywhere I\'ve tried online has said wait until I\'m 21, and when 21 I\'ll get a quote of £1300, which isn\'t too bad. Just wondered if anyone had any experience of insuring under 21\'s.

Looks like I\'ll have to wait though, which I\'m prepared to do :)

Anyone know of anywhere that would be stupid enough to insure me on an 3rd gen RX-7 when I\'m 20? I was going to wait until I\'m 21, but whilst the resale values on the mini are still high it might be a good idea to jump ship now...

Got 1 years no claims and 3 points SP50 at the moment, so that won\'t help :rolleyes:

Put it on axle stands at the front too?

Alternatively, park the car in manchester - someone will do it for you ;)

I like to buy standard cars before I modify, it gives a sense of personal achievement. I\'ve been browsing through some of the threads on this board and have learnt a lot more than I thought I would!

I\'d end the lease on the mini now if I could afford to insure an RX-7! It\'s in the garage tomorrow for a major leak to be sorted - believe me, if that leak had damaged the floor pan in anyway, the car would be rejected in a second and an rx-7 would be gracing my drive in the very near future. Being 19 though, I\'m just gonna have to bide my time :rolleyes:

At the moment, I\'m aiming on spending 10-15k on an Rx-7 when I sell the mini, so hope to have one in good nick. And being a similar price, I should have a lot more bang for my buck!

Here\'s to a happy rotary future! :D

Just wanted to introduce myself ;)

I\'m 19 and currently driving around in a new mini cooper. In another 2 years the lease will be up so I\'ll be in the market for something a tad quicker.

I\'ve been doing a spot of research on the RX-7 and decided it\'s the 3rd generation I want. Looks to die for, and apparently great handling too. After driving the mini, I think I\'ve found that handling is just as important as power, so this seems a natural choice :)

Basically, I\'m here two years early to try and gain some valuable knowledge of the car before I take the plunge, as I realise that they can be high maintainence machines ;)

Hope to meet some of you at an event in the future...
