    Its better to buy rx8 from local market. I have seen many selling for around 8-9 lacks for 2003/2004 model. Dont import it you will lose to much money and this car is still expensive to import from japan.
    wait one more year and i am sure u can buy one for as low as 7-8 lacks. Confirmed.

    plus, if u can afford the petrol cost then u can surely use it as an evryday car. Keep in mind sports cars are not meant to be economical. So expect less than 10 km/ litre , might be even lower than that.
    But its a great sports for the price. Love the looks and its fully loaded.

    i was being a little generous there. I said max 10. I am sure the average you would get for a manual would be between 7-8 km/litre if u drive like normal humans and dont pull high rpms.
    Yes it might be a better option than vitz, but the maintanence cost of rx8 is huge compared to vitz.
    The air and oil filter cost 3 times more than vitz.
    You would probably have to use full synthetic oil for rx8( mobil1 or shell new fully synthetic oil) which would cost u about 2 to 3 times more than the semi synthetic oil which would be fine for vitz. same for spare parts, you could get them from montogemry road , but they would cost about thrice than the price of vitz parts .
    So in theory u might be able to buy rx8 for same or a bit more price of vitz , but then you would have to fork out huge amount for its oil and airfilters, spark plugs, parts etc.
    Rx8 is about 3 times more expensive than vitz in japan. So its actually a costly car, but due to the reasons i mentioned above this car has bad resale value here.
    So if u think u can deal with its maintanece cost then i would say buy a driven car from local market.
    You would get a great deal on rx8.

    And regarding the engine. Yes alot of car magazines have stated that its engine needs more attention and can wear out quite easily if u dont take care of it. For example by using mobil 1 as oil , expensive spark plus, Good air filter, frequently changing oil ( may be every 2000-3000kms) etc.
    But then we have so many ppl who have rx7's still wroking in superb condition and rx7 has the same rotary engine. I dont think its engine will give u any problem if u keep it well tuned.
    Proof is all those Rx 7's in lahore still going good.

    WEll,,,,usin a Mazda RX-8 in Pakistan isn't da main issue as far as i think.........If ur using a fresh car which is in good condition then its nt goin to give u any kind of trouble.........Im using RX-8 S-type n its going flawlessly.............

    As people sayin here that it needs changing of spark plugs n every thing like that,,,,,,no its not that!!!!!!!!!!! u only need to change its oil filter n oil after optimum mileage..........A FRESHLY USED CAR IS NOT GOIN TO GIVE U ANY TROUBLE..........IT SIMPLY ROCKS IN RUNNING, GRIP, MILEAGE N LOOKS N EVERYTHING...........


    @maverikkkkkkk,,,,,,

    lol,,,ur comparing vitz wid RX-8,,,,,r u in ur senses buddy?
    Bro,there is no match btween da price of a mazda n vitz............
