Get a civic. You cant go wrong with those bro.

Scholar is completely on point here. The RX8's gas mileage is not good and I heard they consume a shit load of oil.

they are extremely common, but there are so many things that you can do afterwards to make your car different due to the huge aftermarket community.

Also, they are common for a reason.They are safe, I've been rearended twice in mine and all I had was shoulder/neck pain from it. good on gas and not too slow although I have a couple mods on mine lol. Stock handling isnt bad either the only negative is that if you get one with the factory tires still on it, dont expect them to last. At all.

I drive this exact Audi, mine's a manual tho. I'd swap mine for the Rx8 in a heartbeat. Mine's a really nice car to drive, but despite being turbo it's not quick and it's not a particularly fun drive. The interior of an Rx8 is a nice place to be, and certainly comparable to the Audi

I disagree and especially not any Audi built 2009 or later.

If you want to use to go for short distances school,cinema etc. typical teenager things then it's the wrong car for
it has terrible gas mileage(17mpg +) and you will just destroy the engine you need to warm up the engine for at least 10 minutes
and it also needs a lot of oil
a lot of early rx-8s had their engine replaced so if you want to buy one form 03 or 04 get one who had their engine replaced
if you love driving cars and if you can pay insurance and gas yourself it's amazing if only want to pose with that car and you will only use to drive to you friends house then get something else like a mazda 3 or a civic

Compare apples with apples, he's looking at an 2004ish Rx8 vs an 2004ish B6 A4 (of which I own one) I've been in RX8s and they have a nice interior that really isn't much of a step down from my Audi.
