    I don't know where you are, so I wouldn't know what to factor in. But I'd say no to a brapper as a first car, because really no matter what, they're expensive to run, and don't run often. If he's really willing to go through it all though, I guess it's his choice

    Well tell your younger brother that life sucks and tell him to get a boring ass Opel because the Wankel engine sucks dick at being a daily car and unless you want him to waste all of his and probably your parents money on a rolling chassis

    If we're bringing the 'life sucks' and the 'boring car' cards,

    Buy the RX-7

    But still the Wankel engine sucks at being a daily, at being a fast track than yeah it's great, but unlike those people I have a life and that engine will not last you 100,000 miles or 160,934.4 kilometers.

    Doesn't mean you need an Opel. Wankel engines have a reliability raiting of about 0, and yet I still know what I'd prefer to daily. Regardless of how many times I have to end up walking.

    Still, you probably shouldn't buy the RX-7. There are plenty of other fun cars out there which also have the benefit of actually running. I'm sure you'll find something better.

    If it's out of the RX-7 or an Opel though, then may good braps come to you

    Im in germany and what about the rx8 those were reliable as long as they are after 2006. Opel is basically even less reliable than a alfa wich really is unreliable. Also i just talked to him any other car is fine as long as its japanese and has a coupe bodyshape european is fine to as long as it isnt german

    That's false, we've had it in 2017 already, had it in 2016, 2015 and 2014 too. Grit also isn't just for snow, it's for ice, which again we've had

    They're just as unreliable. You will need a total engine rebuild every 50000 miles and really really really need to keep on top of oil, many owners don't and scour the rotor housing beyond repair

    My sense of time has been completely screwed since I graduated high school. I was honestly about to tell you that January 2017 hasn't happened yet.

    G.... Guys...

    GUYS

    I went and looked at it. It has the perfect amount of patina. 200,000 miles, 5.0, Automatic... I need it. I need it now. Imagine this thing with GT40 heads/intake, an E303 cam, shorty headers, and a full exhaust.

    I don't think you know what "Patina" is, It sure as shit isn't grandpa stripes and ground effects.

    Yes, I do. It's well warn, missing clear coat here and there, a few bumps and scratches. And you bet your ass that gay ass Mark III "Luxury Trucks" color is getting changed. My uncle had a dark forest green one, so it's that or white.
