Looks good. Clutch was gone fast though.

Did you trade your V for it?

Not bad, I'd request the V back til the RX-8 is fixed, or a rental atleast.

Me and the wife looked at one that was only 11gs and only had 18k miles from a Mazda dealership trying to get rid of it, but gas the gas mileage sucks for a 1.3L. and it was an automatic.

Did you check the oil? For RX-8's, the engine oil must be topped off, because of burnoff in the engine. You'll lose a pint about every 1000 miles. Also, use only synthetic.
