View Full Version : 2005 Mazda RX8 Shinka 10500 OBO

8k pretty firm on the price but I can see what I can do

It is a 2005 rx8 Shinka, only about 1300 of these produced for the US
It has about 94k miles, and will slowly go up about 150 a week because it is my DD
I had the ignition coils, wires, spark plugs, and fuel pump replaced at about 80k miles
Had the clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, pilot bearing, transmission fluid flush at about 87k miles
The upgraded water pump at about 65k miles
Also my engine is still under factory warranty for a 05/30/13 or 100k miles, whatever comes first...I have to make sure on this though because previous owner and dealership did not tell me this car has a rebuilt engine, but Mazcare told me I may have a rebuilt engine because they think they remember the previous owner telling them this.
All the fluids flushed at around 55-60k miles, with chassis being lubricated where accessible at around 55k miles.Oil changes and oil topped off meticulously
All recent maintenance done starting from about 50k miles I have and they were done mostly by the dealership or Mazcare other than for some check ups and oil changes
only fed her the recommended oil and premium gas

Leather seats
Driver Power Seat
Seat Heaters
leather wrapped steering wheel and handbrake
xenon headlights lights
Cruise control
Bose audio system
tilting adjustable steering wheel
Beautiful Black Cherry Paint
Parchment Leather Seats
Bilstein Shocks
suspension cross member injected with urethane foam
Mazda claimed a improved ride quality and 33% more chassis rigidity with the Shinka over the other RX8s

Some of the mods that were done by previous owner
Mazdaspeed CAI
Mazdaspeed exhaust tips
JDM clear corner side lights
OEM Chrome wheels
10" JL Subwoofer
Ipod integrated auxilary
Mazdaspeed Front and rear strut bars
there's a few little aesthetic things too but nothing dramatic like the OEM aero Kit, rotor shaped valve stem caps, purple Brake calipers and Lug Nuts
I think that is it...

Now the cons...
exterior of the car I would rate at a 7.5/10
The paint is not fading or anything but there are several small scratches on the car here and there especially on the front of the hood
Tiny crack on the side of the side of the bumper (never noticed it until the 2nd time I was detailing my car)
A small crack on the passenger side headlight, it does condense a little after rain
Also the wheels were curb rashed pretty badly by previous owner, but the wheel damage or paint damage is noticeable unless closely inspected.
The interior of the car is about a 7.5/10
Everything is in good shape and clean other than for the side of the driver's seat which is wearing out, but no rips yet. And a little wearing and scratches here and there on the plastic parts, with a crack on the passenger side dash

Car is a awesome daily Driver, weekend car, or track car. Never had any issues with reliability, drives like a dream, and beautiful car overall. You can only see the defects if your really looking for them.

My asking Price is 11,500 or OBO. Price will DROP $75 about every week as I drive it more.
The pics are of the car at its best, I can send more updated pics on request. Also I will try to take best pics of the defects, but the scratches are extremely difficult to catch on camera.

My apologizes I have been very busy and away for awhile. My car now has 90XXX now, got a oil change recently, and the driver side window motor is hesitant, but window still works with some help. My new price is 9000 and I really want to sell it within the next 2 weeks. I would also be open to trades for a 350Z MUST BE A 6 SPEED.

The FRS I would like to but I do not think I can get enough cash on top for the trade lol

I hear the "Shinka" isn't a very common trim level. My co-worker has an FC and has mentioned this one before.

94k miles and still for sale. I will do a coolant flush this week and maybe an oil change. Hmu. Really I would prefer a trade, either a straight trade, cash on top or cash on your side.

08-22-2013, 10:25 AM
BUMP. 8k cash, negotiable, or a trade. I can do some cash on top if your car is worth more
