I'm in the Denver area, but members are few and far between. I think we have a couple in the Springs, but other than that, pretty dead around here.

So I might be moving to Denver and this is not a good sign. Is there any cars and coffee style scene in Denver at all?

There are a lot of Cars and Coffee meets in Denver and the surrounding areas. I myself have never attended one, but my brother has gone to a few, so have some of my friends.

There are several rotaries in the springs, mostly 3rd Gen 7's. There are alot of 8's in Denver, I see them all the time, just not a very active community that I have found.

I have read a lot about rx8's. Found a nice one that needs a new transmission rebuild/transmission swap but has a new engine in it. great price and great condition. I do have to travel to get it but no big deal.

I am pretty comftorable with the rx8 from all the reading I have done atleast with components.

Hopefully I can get the car next weekend.

here would be my rotary set up the 7 and 8.

Whats up fellow Rotory Hedz from Denver area. Im Carlos from New York City. This is going to sound strange but im looking for a 2009 to 2011 RX-8 R3. I saw one for sale at a dealership in the Denver area , but again im in New York. The lady at the dealership has been very nice answering my questions and providing mechanical ( compression numbers and aftermarket upgrades) ) for me. I stiil would like to inspect the chassis and the paint , drivetrain and interiors of the vehicle. So im wondering if anyone on here is near the deslership and maybe stop by check the car for me and give me a fellow " CAR GUYS" stamp of approval. Im very particular like most if us RX-8 guys are so any help would be appreciated. This is the dealership and its address:

Unlimited Motors LLC
1395 South Broadway
Denver , Co. 80210

My business is about twenty blocks south of that lot. I could probably take a look at it later today or tomorrow morning. Could you alert them that I would be coming?

I can try to go take a look tomorrow during my lunch, you already got compression #'s so if they are good I will look it over and let you know if there is anything visibly wrong with it. Maybe take it for a test drive too.

Hey Mark. Sorry bout responding so late. Been working crazy hours. I'm interested in the car. I'm still shopping around. If it's not that badly out of your way I would appreciate a look at it. I just want to make sure the undercarriage and the interiors and exterior are in excellent condition as they look in the pics sent to me. I know engine wise the car is Very very good. I'm going to New Hampshire this weekend to check another one.
