Considering like everything needs to be replaced on this DB8, I'm totally down with new and reliable. Speaking of which, I currently hate driving so much that I want to set this DB8 on fire.

No clue what's gonna happen with my back, but I'm going to set up an appointment with a doctor and find out what my options are because I have no desire to wait and find out if my body decides to suck the disc back into my spine.

who's hosting the track day? I'll more likely come in the miata, I have some shifting issues to figure out in the Si.. that and nobody makes track pads for it for some stupid reason...

I must say, driving an old Type R around with my herniated disc fucking sucks. Getting really tempted to sell it for $10k and buy an Accord Type R (TSX kind of Accord).

^ My back hurts a bit after driving my type S as well. But I think it's cause the seat is just really old and doesn't have any padding hardly left.

Can't afford that road tax. 5.0L V12 would be like $1000 a year just in road tax.

At this point in my life, I highly regret having sold the DC5. That car was actually pretty comfortable to be in. Then again, I doubt I even have the strength in my left leg to push that car's retardo stiff clutch in. I have enough problems with the stock clutch on the DB8. Have to wear my safety boots when I drive now because the extra weight and sole height helps.

dude if you're having these sorts of issues why not get a second daily strictly for comfort... auto... soft suspension... non bucket-y seats... then keep your fun car fun...

Cause then I gotta pay road tax for two cars. Only have two parking spots at my apartment anyways, and the shop I rent is pretty full already. Besides, I hate having a boring daily driver, and driving automatics makes me feel dead inside.

There's two CL7s listed for sale on Okinawa. I'm gonna try to test drive one just to see if I like it. I need a more modern car, but I don't want to buy one as I'll quickly remember why I got the DB8 in the first place. The Integra has a really low cost of ownership and everything I want for it can be easily found as an off the shelf solution. Not much of anything is available for the CL7 (which is probably a good thing).
