was looking at getting the same as what stuy had a while ago a s2000 but insurance was still expensive so I opted for this, I know people have different opinions about their reliability but I am willing to give it ago, collect it in 2 weeks.

Haha Rhys lad I knew you would'nt be able to hold it in for long!

Btw Joe, that's the sound of the wankel engine, sounds like its screaming, cos it has a 9000rpm redline - rotary engine, no pistons in sight fella. Dunno if this one will sound so bad, isnt it the 7500 model?

Just as your TF is running sweet as a dream after all the arsing about you went through with the garage, you feel like a change lol!

grin

Having now been in this, I can see why you got it mate, interior is extremely high quality compared to the TF, it wernt bad in itself, but I agree that this is far more refined and comfortable whereas the TF was more performance orientated and a much lower priced car when brand new... still not sure if its faster than the TF, but it don't feel much, if anything, slower than it!!

Rear seats, a lot more practical!!

Your like a kid at Christmas haha! laugh

Never heard much bad about the motors in the 8s - maybe the lack of the turbo helps - cant be any worse than the MG though frown

don't be fooled into thinking the rotary's are unreliable. things only go wrong when you cut corners.

Yep, look after it, keep up to date on its services and theres no reason it will ever be unreliable.

At least you dont have to worry about the headgasket.
