    Issue with the RX8 would be insurance. When i was looking the RX8 was significantly more than even the MPS (for me) $1800 vs $950.

    Think the biggest difference between the Neo and the SP25 is that the neo's 2ltr will rev better than the 2.5. But the Sp25 has all the luxury gear, and better torque.

    Honestly, if you really want a good car with performance, just wait.

    Please don't take this the wrong way, but the way some of your posts have come across, its people such as yourself are the reason for the P plate restrictions.
    I could well be wrong (likely) but its just the impression i have got.
    The desire to buy a turbo car, dispite knowing its againt the law, and wanting to load up the car with your mates gives that stereotypical impression, again, sorry if thats not the case.

    But listen to people such as IBOMPS, as i said, he knows what he is talking about.
    Side note, slightly on topic, in Victoria, do they have the same passenger restrictions for P platers as NSW?

    just one thing about rx8's... they require a bit more care than a standard engine... can damage/flood your engine much easier
    but you will learn a number of fantastic car care lessons from owning one

    Wow double for insurance for the rx thts quite abit

    Point well taken
    I was looking into the mps becoz its good for a normal drive and it has the pull when needed as for piling ppl into the car thts very rare

    Also i tend to drive my parents around to places so the mps fits there to. hence space for them and the shopping etc

    P platers can carry any amount of ppl when on their greens which im on

    I'm on my P plates lol geeze guys way to forget about me, I'm still on my reds too :P in W.A =) and @gt4dk I personally think it's not as dangerous as people make it out to be, if you don't drive liek a dick it's very unlikely, and try get your self use to the torque steer like go to a private bit of land /warehouse and get use to it, at first I was shit scared of the torque steer now it doesn't bother me one bit, other wise one day you might smash it into gear than be surprised and veer off the road...

    Did you think about gettign the 6 MPS instead?

    weird fare enuff though

    and yeah might consider the rx8 still capable of fitting the mates in the car and are quite quick
    it's your car man, don't base your decision on what your mates will think, at the end of the day you're driving it..

    Based on your age, I would say that the laws were put into place well and truly after you got your p plates, assuming you got them at normal 17-18years old.


    Correct me if I'm wrong, but am I correct in saying that dispute knowing that its illegal to drive a turbocharged car while on p plates, GT4DK is still considering buying a turbo charged car?

    If its a good law or a bad law, it doesn't matter, a law is law.
    It's the young drivers like that, are the ones that spoil it for the mature level headed responsible drivers like "rfzd"

    nar i didnt get license right away .... was few years ago now though but because i lost license it held me back an extra year on top of the usual 3 years so i didnt get my full license till i was round 24-5 so a good 4-5years ago now ... level headed drivers still have accidents as therse so many bad drivers with full licenses of all ages i can say ive never had an accident and i hope i never do being my fault or any one else .
