Certainly was, got a Honda accord in part ex to run me aroutfor the next few months until my next car. 2.2 diesel does 40-50mpg and costs the same time tax for a year as 3 months did for the rx8....

Boring and slow though... But makes buying a house easier so needs must at the moment

Yeah to be honest I had loads of interest in it, but with the starting issue and the bodywork needing work etc I was surprised it went so easily.

I do miss it but I'm about to buy my first house so money is tight but hopefully give it a few years and I'll have another... Now I've sold it and said that I expect they will be worth 10k in 5 years lol

This is where the new owner finds an old 10mm socket rattling around in the intake hose and occasionally jamming the throttle body, or some equally implausible and dead-cheap-to-fix cause of the problem...
