Are the rotaries in the 8s that bad? Aside from everyone I know with one practically fapping at the mere mention of them I haven't heard much.

(Btw, auto isn't an issue for me. I've got a bad leg/ankle so driving with a clutch isn't always an option. I know, nobody cares, but I'd rather mention it than get randomly laughed at for driving an auto.)

Yeah, they don't put out that much power, suck down gas, consume oil as part of being a rotary, and the automatic that's paired with it has even LESS power than the manuals and also sucks because you really have to rev the poo poo out of the car to get it going in the first place. I don't hate on autos, but the auto + RX8 is not a good combo by any means.

Plus the engine failure rates on the early automatic RX8s were pretty high from what I remember.

I actually used one of those cameras, a decade ago in high school. Their only method of transferring files was via the built in floppy drive. Maybe his new computer doesn't have a FDD, and those photos are the only ones he has of the now-damaged-irreparably passenger's side?
