I'd still rather get my hands on an M3 CSL.

the RX-8 is a good looking car, I will admit that, but I got some bad news for you. unless you continually abuse the clutch, it ain't that fast. a good example is the 5-60MPH test. car and driver reported a time of 7.5 sec. now it did record a 0-60 time of 5.9, but that involved dumping the clutch at 8000rpm. and while I do realize that it has a suspension to die for, the severe lack of torque makes it difficult to utilize this attribute. add about 50-75lb-ft and call me back.
