Did someone say Rx-7? As in FC?

Over 400,000 miles on a car whose engine has a history of going boom before 100K

I do like the Audi A4's though, I saw one today and it looked pretty cute, I'm just not familiar with the integrity & all that.
No, those are just my (not that knowledgeable) opinions. I don't think you can go wrong with another Acura - and I think Hondas have proven their worthiness too. I don't know either of them well at all, and also don't know the differences between TSX, MDX and TL I just believe what I have read - that they are well-designed and well-made vehicles - Acuras and Hondas.

Audis, in my opinion, are also fine cars. They weren't always, and I think MarcusF might agree with me on that. They have come a long way since the lowly Audi Fox and 100S of the mid-1970s.

Good luck with whatever you buy next,

Thumbs up MarcusF & Professor

You both have nice-looking RX-7s.

Congratulations my friends!

Now I have to find a way to reduce the pics my digital Kodak camera takes of my '91 Camry LX V6 to thumbnail size so I can show that to you.

Resize photos? For free? Go to Microsoft Powertoys and download and install the MS Image Resizer. The next time you open a photo with the default Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, right click, and select resize. Then, the next time one of your buddies does something humorous, make them legendary!

Wow, that's awsome, 400K. Did you rebuild the engine? I have 168K on the original engine with no loss of compression, no leaks and runs super clean. My emissions readings are incredible too.

Thanks Musikmann, these cars can last as good as any good quality Benz. The handling is excellent.

That's a third generation RX7, it's an awsome car too. Smaller than mine but fits like a glove. They still hold their value very well in the market well after ten years of the last one being produced for the US.
The RX8 I don't care much for, I am not impressed with the body style. Maybe it's personal taste.
