tough one. I don't like the RX8 becuase of its looks. DOn't like 350 because its 2 seater. If I had to choose, I would go with the rx8, only because it as seats in the back. cool

Evo looks way better than the RX8. I guess I just like having seats in the back. So, Evo for sure.

Yeah the 350Z for me too, it just seems easier to fix, and driving a spyder I know how 2 seats goes.

Rotary engines are a lot easier to fix than any other engines, thats why i would favor the Rx8 than the 350z. Dont like the 350z too much... resembles more of a domestic car, and according to BMI, drives like it too. The EVO looks uglier than its previous generations, but i would get it outa the choices here. The car is loaded with electronics like the AYC and TCS. The STi would be a good choice too.
Rx8 does have potential... it just desperately needs a Turbo (and lower compression). Rotary and Turbo, goes hand and hand like peas and carrots.

rx-8 has a love it or hate it design and I dont like it but I love the Z to death. True sports car and the Evo is just not my style.

I'd rather have the Z.

I don't like Mitsu.

350z w/out a doubt over anything under 50,000. 4 door cars are gay no matter how fast they are (evo,wrx,srt-4--all ugly as sin). RX8 is a weird 4 door and I don't like the styling. I would love to have a burnt orange z. I plan on buying that when I get rid of the Celi. The celi has 4 seats but lmao you can't ride back there if you're older than 10!!

Unless you need room for your babyseat in back, you better like the 350z better. It's infinitely faster, has better handling, and WAY more potential for mods. The RX-8 is simply one of the nicer looking coupes out there, but it is by no means a "sports car" in my view.

Man get an STi, EVo suck compared to that, all the Sti's down here were im from are faster than all the Evo's stock. The only thing i dont like about those cars is that they are 4 DOORS! = GAY IMO, i now have the choice of 2nd car being any of those cars (350Z, STi, Evo MR, and S200 which im interested in, but not really) and as of now im leaning for a GTS thumbsup

Dude... 350z aren't all that. I think its overrated, but i cant argue about it being one of the "best-bang-for-your-buck". It understeers a lot for an FR and in my opinion, DOES NOT handle better than the Rx8. I've driven both cars (and the Rx7) and the Rx8 feels like the Rx7s... corners with ease. Rx7 is considered the best when it comes to handling and control, but theres a debate whether the 8s out handles the 7s. 350z is no where near them when it comes to handling. Just sucks that the 8's are friggin' weak as hell.

if you have ever been in a wrx or and evo the inside looks cheap imo. the z is more sporty compared to the 8, mazda even took power away to give it a smooth transition between gears instead of having heads snapping. hopefully mazdaspeed will Turbo it. stock Turbos are prolly far off because the fd lost a lot of sales because it was twin Turbo and made buying unable to afford insurance.

the US spec EVO 8 has no AYC and ACD...the only thing it has is EBD and ABS i believe.
another difference is the 5 spd. where the Jspec has 6 spd

you sould see how the EVO MR is goin...its a kick ass car i think.

O crap your right... well there goes the US-spec Lan Evo. I assumed that they would keep the AYC. I dont like all that technology but all of that made the EVO8 in Japan one of the quickest machines on the track. Both the WRX and EVO we're rally bred, they werent meant to look pretty. If it was up to me, I'd buy either of them without all of those luxury items to experience how it was really meant to feel when it was first designed. The LanEvo RS is a step forward.

I'd have to drive them both to see what they're like, but there definitely are a lot of Z's around.

I imagine the Z is heavier, but it has some more power, and the RX-8 is suppose to be fairly agile and it's pretty unique looking. Very hard to answer actually.. I want to say both because they each have their good points, but I did sit in a few Z's when I was shopping for a car and I found it hard to see over the Hood since the seats were so low slung and I am like 6', but maybe the just needed some adjusting.

Z all the way. I want that car bad...either that or a G35 Coupe. I test drove the RX-8. The interior is nice but the power wasn't impressive at all.
