After years of saving, (literally years) I can finally afford my dream car which is a FD RX7. I have researched these so much that I know them back to front.
The question Im asking myself, is should I go for the blue or white?
I would love to get grey but that only came with the super rare Spirit R's.
>implying you are going to have the luxury of choosing colors
These cars are getting harder to find OP. If you find one that has been well maintained, clean, low miles, congratulations. By then you won't care what color it is.
are these legal in burgerland
>saving years for a car
At least it might appreciate in value so long as you don't bugger it.
You think he doesn't know that? Any retard who mindlessly copies whatever /o/tists say about rotaries will know that. Someone who's been eyeing one for years will probably know what they're getting in to.
Save yourself the disappointment now and just buy something else.
If its taken you years to save for one of these, likely scenario is you can't afford to maintain it properly. Either that or you're a retarded autistic beta who's watched too much anime and Japanese car shows.
Who gives a turd if you are a shitty driver and can't spot a big fucking thing rolling somewhere. Take the fucking bus and better yet go fuck yourself in the ass.
Family friend / neighbor has 7 FDs. at one point he had something like 12, some with as low as 12k miles on them. The reds blend in with many other mid 90s cars, the yellow really stands out. I would personally got white as other ANons have mentioned it's a great color to do accents with, the mazda blue just seems too bland to me. Black is sexy, but a pain int he ass to keep clean.
>years of saving
>blowing years of saving on a 12,000$ car
i really hope youre getting a pay raise after you buy it because i can gaurentee you somethings gonna be wrong with it. my s2000 needed new brakes, new clutch master cylinder, new slave cylinder, new air filter, oil, tranny, diff fluid change. basically normal maintenece stuff, new brake fluid, and if still needs some work, and that is on a car thats not as high maintence as the fd.
at the very least if it hasnt been done already youll need to replace the cooling system.
expect to pay at least 18,000$ for an fd with nothing needed to be done to it and that hasnt been molested.
Im thinking the same as this guy. OP happens to like one of the most time and money consuming japanese sportscars. Rough.
Expect to replace anything rubber thats a seal in this age of car and as far as color Id go with blue. Unless as someone else pointed out you plan to do accents or anything else exterior then white may be best for contrast.
or you can do what you want to it because its your car that you saved for years for
And OP, I have to ask, if it took you so long to save up for the car, are you sure you have the finances to maintain it? The RX7 is an old car, and with an old RX7 comes potentially (more often than not) very large amounts of maintenance
Also, maybe OP was smart, bought a shitbox cash and has been saving $300 "car payments" so he can buy his dream car / toy cash. That would take years and much smarter approach than a lot of younger people take. Also if he has a DD and a place for the FD, he is in a good spot.
Did you save money for the LS swap op? Truely its the only way to enjoy a fd
Innocent Blue Mica is the best but white is definitely the second best.
I was in the same situation about a year and a half ago.... Loved FD's since I first laid eyes on them in 93, and it took me 21 years to afford my dream car... I debated the color, but finally came up with a specific combo... A silver R2, with black interior.
Between blue and white, I think I'd go with blue.
In the end, you can't go wrong with any color FD.
And don't listen to the ppl saying that the only way to enjoy an FD is to do a V8 swap. The rotary engine is the heart of the machine. Yes, they are quirky. Yes, they need some special care. But its worth it.
Also one bit of advice... PREMIX...
Depends what you are looking for. Reliability and simplicity, twins all the way.
If you are looking to preserve the cars original character but want more of it, upgraded sequential twins are the way to go.
IMO sequential twins feel cool to drive. It's something unique about the car.
