RX's second-hand parts is anywhere in Europe?

Colleagues, if some of you knows, any web & email addresses of companies dealing with second-hand parts for RXs in Europe? There are lot of them in US, but its far and no one knows for sure is that part is same spec as Europeans machines.

Thank you in advance and
Good luck

I don't know about any Europoean companies (Since I live in the US) BUT if you don't find what you are looking for, maybe look into a US company such as mazmart. He is a forum vendor who sells parts off of wrecked mazda's.

Good luck with your search.

I would check ebay.com, I saw a factory head unit on there for $150. If you need help with other US parts let me know. I can probably track down anything you need thru my friends that still live in the US.

Thank you, but the thing is, that now I need exactly european specification head unit, yes, there a some on ebay.com, I bought 6CD changer thru it for example, but nothing on ebay.eu! Its not surprise, as anybody can see Europe forum is not so active to compare to US one! So if you see some kind of Germany companies or www addresses of them dealing with crashed Mazdas, please let me know!

Thank you in advance
Yuri

Hi Yusik,

Have you ever tried this address?

http://www.astrashop.it/rx8.htm

They are emptying 8's to convert them into race cars, so plenty of brand new spare parts!

Bye,
Luc

personaly, i have compared mazda's 3 and 6 headunit and they look the same. i ve bought a mazda 6 radio+cd player set and i am expecting to receive it these days, i believe that if i just swap radios it will all work great.
it is a mazda 6 european radio. all mazda 2/3/5/6/rx8 from 2004 and then, they look the same, i will let you know if there are the same.
