04 RX-8 6 speed w/ bad motor

Year: 2004
Make: Mazda
Model: RX-8
Price: $2,250 obo
Mileage: 87xxx
Color: Brilliant Black
Private or Dealer Listing: Private Listing


Title says it all, have an 04 RX-8 with a bad motor. Had a coolant leak and unknowingly had the engine overheat. Didn't notice until it was to late.


I believe I have a sport model. Has leather interior, CD player, Sunroof, Bose sound, DSC (has been disabled since I got the car) and I have a fresh set of plugs, coils and wires still in the package sitting on a work bench at home.

Can give out my phone number if needed to snap pictures and discuss details of car to anyone if needed.

Located about 10 minutes south of Waco, TX.

Mark

Will do. Car has one scratch on it with a small dent. A taillight is cracked but works fine and the driver side door handle popped off on me. Have a replacement coming in that was going on it ASAP.

9krpmrx8 your inbox is full on your email, so I couldn't send the pictures to you. Here they are though.

Edit: Forgot to take the key with me to take a picture of actual mileage on the car. If anyone wants that, I can go back out to it tomorrow sometime and snap a picture of it as well.

Edit 2: 4th picture is of missing handle on door that I have replacement for.

I realize the pictures are out of order, but I was having problems sending them from my phone, so sorry about that.

Edit: Picture 3 is of the cracked passenger side taillight. Not sure how it cracked, was never hit from behind.

Edit: Picture 3 is of scratch/small dent in rear door on passenger side.

Flash makes it hard to see, but in picture two you can zoom in on the area right in the middle of the door and see it.

Also, sorry but the car is filthy. It is driven on gravel when I drive home up my driveway or to to someone else house. Car doesn't see anything but blacktop outside of that.

Price lowered to $2,750.

Looking to try and get this car into a new home so it can be back up and running.
