    Well i went out in that s4, and although it was 420bhp, it didnt feel that fast, i know it was fast i was watching the speedo, but it was just so smooth, so its not quite what im looking for at the moment. Its going to be a rx7 im looking for one now!

    Going for an RX-7 hey,
    dont know much about them apart from there a Rotary engine
    and go like S'#t off a blanket,big tuning potential too.
    I'd rather the S4 hands down.
    Apparently the newer RX-8 like's a drop of oil, dont know what the
    RX-7 would be like tho !

    Did you get a good price for your S3 ?

    RX7, ooooo yes. Got to be done at some point in your life so why not now. Have you thought about any other jap motors? You can pick a decent R33gtr v-spec for peanuts at the moment.

    i did go in a r33 gtr not long ago, and that was running 400bhp, again it didnt feel that fast!! i think they are a bit to big to feel really rapid! Ive gone in so many cars that are really fast but dont feel it, and i no id get board of that but with the rx7 they feel so quick! probably because your sitting on the floor! i think ill end up getting a s4 in a few years!

    I was looking at getting an rx7 a while back, but kept reading about their stupid oil consumption, something like a litre of oil to every 2 or 3 tanks of fuel! and they need a rebuild every 30k thats gonna cost a bit.
    lovely cars though.

    rx7 is a good choice of motor. If they have had a recent rebuild then they can be pretty reliable. Single turbo conversion is what your after id imagine.

    They are go awful on fuel as standard, and tuned, id hate to think!

    They do drink oil, but its just the cheap stuff. Filter and oil should be changed at 3k miles though, which soon adds up!

    They are a million miles away from the safety of an S3 so just be careful when and where you boot it.

    My mate had the back step right out on him in a straight line blast doing 60mph in 3rd, scary!

    Is a great motor for a weekend toy, so hope you enjoy! Is a bit of struggle to find a single turbo that hasnt been bodykitted up to the max, but they are out there...

    Congrats on the sold car.. Some thing that feels quick has to be on the deck and jap.. possibly vtec?? dont know how you feel about this, but just finished turbo charging a integra lump in a CRX that feels bloody quick, running around 250 about 2 inches off the floor.. built on a limited budget so im sure if you'd put the ££'s and hours in, you could have something rediculously quick.. RX7 is RWD and looks the nuts tho.
    Just a suggestion still.
