IL Local Part Out, Complete Car Sale

***CAR SOLD***
Hey crew...I'm trying to sell my car with little success right now. It looks like I may go the trade-in route. I have some parts I would be willing to strip and sell. I'm looking to see if anyone local has interest. I would need to exchange some parts with your OEM part. All parts are in excellent condition with minimal mileage. I can provide additional details upon request.

I will be working on the dibs method for now. I'm a firefighter and will be working for the next 48 hours, so it may be hard to check back in right away. Here's the list:

OBX-R cat-back exhaust- $200 plus your OEM cat-back system ($299.99 on eBay)

RP Supercat (newer generation, used for about 5,000 miles) - $250

K&N Typhoon II Intake- $150 plus your OEM intake

JDM Clear Corner Markers- $50


Of course, the entire car's for sale. Here's the listing with pics of the parts for sale included. I don't have individual part pictures, but can take some if you need them.

DETAILS: 2004 Mazda RX-8 Grand Touring, LOADED
MILES: 66,000
LOCATION: Crystal Lake, Illinois
ASKING: $12,600 to $14,300 As It Sits (See below)-Prices are NEGOTIABLE

Please direct all inquiries to my email address: [email protected]

Hey Crew,

It pains me to do this, but up for sale is my beloved 2004 Mazda RX-8 GT. I am the second owner of this beautiful machine. This RX-8 came with EVERY option available from Mazda. I just completed extensive work on her, and she's running better than the day I bought her. The sole reason I'm selling is because I have come to a point where I need something more practical, i.e. four (real) doors and trunk space. The car looks, runs, and drives amazing. The Nordic Green is a rare color and, combined with the two-tone interior, this color scheme is hard to come by. You WILL stand out in a crowd.

You will be EXTREMELY hard pressed to find another RX-8 that's been so meticulously cared for and tastefully modified. I am not just an owner, but an enthusiast. I have performed ALL of the maintenance work myself, assuring nothing but quality care was delivered to this amazing machine. See below for upgrades, maintenance, and recent work details.

GT Package UPGRADES:
1. HID Headlights with Level-Adjustment Feature
2. Two-Tone Leather Interior with Heated Seats in RARE Color Combination
3. Sunroof
4. Premium BOSE 6-Disc CD Stereo with Surround Sound
5. Auto-Dimming Mirror with Integrated Homelink
6. Integrated Navigation System with Full Controls
7. Appearance Package
8. Rotary Accent Package
9. Rear Spoiler

Tasteful Modifications:
1. K&N Typhoon II Intake with ram-air piping
2. Forza Racing (OBX-R) Cat-Back Exhaust
3. *Racing Beat High-Flow Cat
4. Tein S-Tech Lowering Springs (See Note Below)
5. High Performance, Zinc Plated Drilled and Slotted Rotors, Ceramic Brake Pads
6. NGK Performance Ignition System
7. Exedy Stage I Clutch, Pressure Plate, and Throw-Out Bearing
8. *Momo V-12 Wheels, Size 18x7.5, Wrapped in Falken Azenis 245-40ZR18
9. *JDM Clear Corner Lights
10. *8000K HID Headlights
11. *8000K HID Fog Lamps
12. LED Spider-Series Brake Light Bulbs
13. *LED Amber Turn Signal Bulbs with Load-Stabilizer for Normal Flash Rate
14. *LED Reverse Lamp Bulbs
15. All Windows Professionally Tinted at 20%


Maintenance: This car has been meticulously maintained throughout its life as noted below:

I have changed the oil and filter religiously every 3000 miles with Castrol GTX 5W20 and OEM Filters, per Mazda recommendations.

Recent Maintenance/Work:
1. I just rebuilt the transmission (6-Speed Manual) 2,000 miles ago (July 2010). In doing so, I replaced a cracked bearing cover and the 4th gear syncro. Once completed, the Transmission Fuild was replaced with Mazda OEM Fluid. All other transmission internals were in excellent condition and measured out within specifications. The Exedy clutch, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing were installed at the same time.

2. A High-Performance NGK Ignition System, including plugs, coils, and wires was installed at the same time as the transmission work, 2000 miles ago (July 2010).

3. Brakes were replaced 500 miles ago (September 2010) with high-performance, zinc plated dilled and slotted rotors. Ceramic brake pads replaced the stock pads.

4. K&N Intake Filter cleaned, re-charged 500 miles ago (September 2010).

5. The leather is continually treated with Maquire's Leather Care Solutions.

As you may be able to tell from the pictures, the car is in overall good condition. This is a 2004 and, therefore, she does show her age a little bit in some rock chips in the front fascia, as well as a few small scratches here and there. Even with this present, my car does not fail to yield compliments almost every time I'm out driving. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. I can email additional pictures upon request.

*-Items outlined with this symbol are negotiable in the overall price. I am willing to accept a lower sale price, however to achieve a lower price, the items included may vary and can be negotiated upon.

NOTE- The Tein S-Tech springs are currently installed only on the front of the car. The rear remains OEM suspension. I did this because I preferred the stance this set-up offered. The rear springs WILL BE INCLUDED in the sale.

SPECIAL SERVICE NOTE- The ABS and Traction Control light is currently illuminated. The dealer indicated this is most likely a relay switch that has gone bad. Because I am interested in selling the car, I do not wish to put additional work into correcting this apparent issue. As a result, I have adjusted the asking prices accordingly to compensate for this issue. Additional negotiations are welcome.

The paint has a chameleon effect, depending on lighting conditions. This is in the sun:

I'm actually interested in all the light items you have. (clear corners, headlights, foglights, reverse light, turn signal) I'll pay for shipping.

As of now, I have intentions on keeping the lighting, such as the HID's and LED's. If I change my mind, you have first dibs on those. Are you interested in the clear corners alone?

Oh i see, I was hoping to purchase all the lights for a small bonus. Are you willing to go any lower for the corners?

The OBX has approximately 5,000 miles or so. It looks and sounds amazing. I have been obsessive about polishing the tips, so you would never know. I would say it's better than new, since I have it all broken in. It's a really nice system...not loud at all unless you go catless. Otherwise, it's just right for the RX-8.

As for the other inquiries, this is a local part-out first. If I don't sell off the parts locally, then I will hassle with shipping.

S.Techs are staying on the car, except for the rears, which were never mounted. I just liked the stance of the OEM rear and S. Tech fronts. I can sell off the rear springs...
