well actaully its kidna odd that im posting in the 3rd gen section, but i jsut wanted to ask a couple of questions. first of all i have been in love with the fd since what 6th grade its kinda funny but i think it was because of me hanging around at my uncles car garage. and it was really sexy. haha and so now im a senior in high school. i have my permit and about to get my drivers license etc etc .im about 70% sure im not getting an rx7 as my first car so dont worry not another wrecked rx7. haha but the thing is im almsot worried? that by the time im out of college or whenever im finacially and everything ready to buy my rx7 that there will not be as much support? i means theres tons of info here and that sort of thing but what would happen in 5 years? i dunno just something i wanted to throw out there. mainly because im worried that when i can get my rx7 i wound have all the things i want. my 57c's my feed front and sides skirts my rotary extreme rear diffuser 99 light etc etc hahah things like how i want my car to be exactly the way i am imagining it even when i will upgerade it to a single turbo 35 40, or vtg? haha 45gt vtg crazy i no but yea i just wanted to make a really long post and get some thoughts out.
the other thing is what would you guys recommned as a first car? porribly an integra or soemthing but theres so many aroudn here. and everyoen has the jdm front and the type r this and that. its not so original. maybe a 240? but im not sure i want to drive that. so im not sure yet. suggestions plz thanks for reading. hope you have enjoyed reading about my concern and <3 for the fd oaky have a nice day.
get a damn civic or integra and save some gas. you dont need a FD that only gets 10 or so mpg and is hella expensive to insure. super unreliable,needy and your ONLY means of transportation. i speak because it is my first car and im 17/18 as well. also on this forum people dislike poor grammar,spelling etc. and the hate "ricey" things so they most likely will not lift a finger to help you if you dont clean up your spelling grammar and maybe change your name ..no joke lol.
hahah well the grammer and such was me typing in a rush and the name is a joke haha. well i dont like the rice either. do i owe anyone an apology haha have i offended u with my rice adn poor grammer jk yea civic it is 34 mpg. haha
I know you're in love with the FD - it's a common story, we've all heard several variations on the same theme. But have you had a look at some of the 3rd gen forum titles: they usually involve any of the following: broken / blown engine / coolant seals / turbo problems etc etc. You get the idea, don't get me wrong, i loved the FD since it came out. But sometimes the only thing worse than not getting what you want, is getting exactly what you want.
Judging by how busy the 1st gen and 2nd gen forums are, I think there will be plenty still around.
^ He speaks the truth. The FD has a veritable cult following, much like the 1st gens/2nd gens. There will always be lots of knowledgable people around. The one thing you will be worrying about in 5 years is prices. With the rate at which highschool children buy these cars and wreck them....well lets just say they wont be cheap in 5 years. IMO of course.
