i have a a700, and with my satisfaction with it, i will like to buy the a800, just for the sake of collecting it. no matter how well it performs. just like i have a TRF415, 416, 417, 418, 419....i'll get the 420 and on and on....and i' would pre order it no matter how it looks

xray guys do the same thing....t3, t4, i'm sure they'll get the t5 and on and on...

Just because a new car is coming out does not mean that your current one needs to go in the trash, it is still competitive. Being slightly optimistic, maybe there will be a conversion kit.

I know!! I just like new and shiny!!

Be interesting to see if it's just a belt drive (minus the floating gearbox) with the same suspension. I wonder how the motor will mount?

I am looking forward to this car as well it should share the same suspension as the current car, but just belt driven. Hopefully we will see it very soon.

But if you do decide to throw away the old one, I'll be hiding in the dumpster.

My Evo1 is still competitive. Only the driver is holding it back.
