I just picked up my 2006 RX-8 Shinka Copper Red with Leather/swade brown interior from the dealership today from being detailed, having plugs changed, seat protection applied and Sat Radio setup. This is my first "Sports Car" I have owned. So far I am very pleased with the tightness and swiftness of the car. I hear gas is a problem with these cars I hope not to have to use Preimean on a regular basis, I just got rid of a gas gussler (2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7L Hemi) and hope my Mazda is better on gas miliage. I can't think of a better color for a 8 than Copper Red.

Murfbear, I hope you will not be mad about the mileage, might not be any better than your Cherokee, but will be quite a bit more fun to drive. I have the 06 Shinka in gray. I love the whole Shinka package, plus it makes the vehicle a little more unique. I think they look pretty nice with the 18" wheels, & it drives/handles like a dream. Just plan on a second set of tires for winter driving. Mine just needs tinted windows and an aux input for the radio, otherwise the entire package is awesome!!Nice specs in the Shinka: Xenon headlights, Dynamic Stability Control with traction control, Tochigi Fuji limited slip differential, 300-watt Bose AM/FM stereo, 6-disc in-dash CD changer, 9 speakers including 2 woofers, speed sensitive volume control, auto-dimming day/night mirror with Homelink, moonroof, sand colored leather/alcantara seat trim, faux leather door trim, leather console lid covers, SIRIUS satellite radio receiver with 1-year subscription, 6-disc in-dash CD changer, leather-wrapped parking brake handle, heated front seats, 8-way power driver's seat, lumbar support, fog lamps, bright finish 18" x 8" alloy wheels and 225/45ZR18 tires, urethane foam-injected suspension cross members, larger brakes, unique suspension tuning, "SHINKA" B-pillar applique, heated mirrors and Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry and Start system.
