Clunk! All it takes is another idiot in a carpark opening his car door onto my RX-8 and there is another dent in the door!!! Fools bumping cars with their doors is one thing, but the RX-8 metal seems to be real soft and will dent at the slightest provocation! Damn!!! Evil or Very Mad

I hear you. There are idiots the world over who are inconsiderate or downright mean. Just the other day, I came out of the supermarket to find spit on my car. I just wish I'd been there to catch the guy and teach him a lesson about respecing other people's property. But, at the same time, I'm happy it was not something more serious, like a keying or even an unthoughtful door ding. My car has enough dings already.

The RX-8 doors are purposefully made lightweight. The rear doors, in fact, are aluminum.
