What To Do? #### POLL ####

Alrighty, so here's the deal. For giggles Diana and I went to the mazda dealership in Durham today to see if they had any RX8's in stock (all of the ones here around Greensboro are out of stock) Well, I eyeballed an 07 Grand Touring .... Velo Red with 2 tone leather interior, 6 spd, sunroof, Ipod hookups (both power and audio) ... pretty much everything I would want in an RX8 off the lot, just no spoiler ... which I think I could persuade them to wrap into the deal. Now, any other day of the week I'd be willing to tell them to F-off. But, there's a $3500 rebate (from Mazda) which brings the price down to 30,500 give or take a few an I've talked them into bringing it down to 28K, all inclusive, tax, title ... the whole 9 yrds ... out the door. My 3 has 80K on it and I'm in the hole payment wise, so that would be tacked onto the 28K for the RX8. I'm pretty sure I can still come out under 30K for the RX8 ... which I can afford now since I took this new job.

Take the RX8 deal, or keep the 3 and pay it off?

Go ... Vote!!!

Re: What To Do? #### POLL ####

i would take the deal, but move things really really slow, its an 07 so they need to push it off the lot, just play the waiting game maybe u could get it down to 26k, i know my cousin pretty much got a steal on his rx-8, although it wasn't a grand touring

Re: What To Do? #### POLL ####

why would you want to owe more than a car is worth? IMO never a good idea.

Yeah, If I take the deal I'm going to tell them 28K for the car, they put on a spoiler, and they give me a free tint job. Then when I got ready to sign the papers just keep saying no till I get it down to about the 25-26K range.

I'm already in that boat. But, in a year after I get some other things squared away I'm going to start dropping 2K a month on it till it's paid off, which shouldn't take long at that rate.

pay off your 3. if you are going to be in a better financial situation in the near future, then wait to buy the RX-8 in the near future. or why not live without a car payment for a while (and keep driving the 3) and save the car payment money as a down payment for an RX-8?

because my 3 may or may not last that long. I don't know if the transmission was serviced before I got it, and if the transmission goes ... I'm boned. I'll have a 3000 pound hunk of crap that isn't worth a dime.

As stated in my O.P. it's a 6 spd.... to have an RX8 in MTX should be a criminal offense!

RX-8 is a cool car, but I've grown away from it over a while and still prefer an RX-7 over it if I want a 2door Mazda. Otherwise, I'd pay off the 3 and get something else wether it be the future RX whatever or something faster for the price of 30k, or, get a Speed3.

I think Diana favors that idea ... we talked about it on the way home today
