I'd pick the RX-8.

In my opinion, the RX-8 retained more of the sports car feel than the Civic. Practicality is one thing, but I very much prefer a smaller, lighter car.

That and the rotary engines are just fun!

I voted for rx.

But.. it's based on your needs etc. Because my family all quite big sized (LOL), so honda is really pathetic -_-

& I prefer Mazda's cars design

if you are going to keep for 10 years. go for the Civic Type R. as you can see how lasting and demanding the honda cars are in the market, especially the civic series. eg6, ek9 etc.

rx8 wise, new facelift is out, rx-9 coming out. still based on rotary engine, which can't last for long. fc is crazy, engine oil also have to top up more frequently.

i know a lot of rx8 owners. u know what they tell me? dont buy rx8. it's crap. even the owners do regret they bought the rx8. look at the number of rx8 for sale now on sgcarmart...

of course in terms of looks, rx8 wins hands down. civic type r, it depends on whether u refering to the JDM or Euro version. lots of bad critics about the Euro version, many prefered the JDM. for me, i would go for the Euro version, the look of it just attracts me more then the JDM model.

so at the end of the day, u still have to make a wise decision base on practicality. go for the civic type r. cheers.

Re: Which would you choose........ ???

For me... Definitely RX8.

Reasons being:

#1] Sporty
#2] It's a 4 seater/door car that looks like a 2 seater/door car

But looks aside, somebody i know had a major engine breakdown mths after he bought the car, 1st hand. But it's most probably an isolated incident. Never heard of anybody else having problems with it.
Still, i'll take RX8. just modify the engine la.

10 years is a loooong time, man. why this decision? esp when this high oil price is going to force car companies to produce good cars using less petrol and more alternate fuels.
