well i think the 3rd gen rx7 is one of the best cars out there!
i\'m a very lucky 19 year old with the privelege of owning one, paid entirely by a rubbish job and my student loan and overdraft, so if i can afford the running costs then im sure you can!
m3, which model? newest 1? VERY expensive really in comparison to the seven, and yeah its a nice car, but its almost the same as every other 3 series.
supra is nice but rx7 is amazing!!!!
it is a very very rare car in england so you definitely attract ppls attention with the smooth curves etc.
ok so this makes parts harder to come by, but not that hard. there are about 5 places in the north west for example that i can think of that specialise in sevens.
depite the horror stories you may of heard, the 3rd gen was very very reliable.
jason turner was right about the engine though, i just had mine replaced 5000 miles ago with 65000 miles on the clock.
the car itself can be modified a lot, and even in standard form its very very nice.
depending on the model, type r, rb, rs, rz etc it may or may not be faster than an m3, but all are faster than the supra twin, (i think)
i have the type rb, 265hp, plus mods its now about 290, and i managed to outrun an m3 the other day.
it all depends what you want out of it. i drive my car every day and to be honest i have never been in a car so comforable and relaxing to drive, my dad drives my car more than his new jag s-type lol.
the back seats are small but will do any1 for small journeys, the boot space isnt very deep, but you can still fit about 10 shopping bags in there.
handling is second to none, and the car is very very smooth
make sure you do warm it up first if your going to push it or you can damage the turbo\'s etc, make sure you dont take it above 4000revs on a cool engine, the 2nd turbo kicks in at 4500 revs and this isnt good when its cold.
as for petrol if you push it you will prob get between 17-20 miles to the gallon, if you dont, up to about 25.
and i have to say it, POP-UP HEADLIGHTS. they are just amazing and really suit the curves of the car. door handles built into the window, it is an amazing machine.
just watch the beginning of fast and furious if you dont believe me :p
the cabin is very good for reducing road noise etc, i can hardly hear my 4" a\'pexi exhaust, get out the car and its noisy as hell.
the sound system as standard is good, you might want to upgrade you head unit thought. one speaker on the dash, two in the front doors, and two just behind the drivers seat.
you can get a seven from anywhere between 7k and 18k for an amazing done up one, just look on the autotrader website.
4 wheel abs is also a good feature it has.
got to say the rear light clusters are sexy as hell
just realised i am waffling, so i hope this helps
just going to say please please get one of these very special cars, and if not str8 away, at least test drive one and you will see for yourself how good it is!!!
