CT 2005 Mazda RX8 For Sale in Connecticut

It’s been a long love affair, but it is time to sell my car in order to get something else fun to share with the wife, who doesn’t drive a manual.

2005 Mazda RX8 6-speed manual, winning blue, black fabric interior, sport package with 52,000 miles. Well maintained and in excellent mechanical condition. Near new inside, clean outside except for dent described below. Wheels near perfect. Original owner since February 2006. Have all paperwork. Everything as new: all three keys, manual, window sticker.

Can show car in Vernon, CT 06066 or Windsor, CT 06095.

$8,450 firm.

Upcoming service:

Dent:
One accident on the Carfax: In Fall 2006, a pickup truck clipped the driver’s door leaving a dent and front fender leaving scratches. The scratches polished out quite well, but remain visible up close. I preferred to leave the dent in the door, rather than compromise the original paint and welds with a body-shop door panel replacement and repaint. Check out the photos and see what you think. I took a lot of pictures to give a realistic view of the dent, since it is less obvious at some angles than others.

FWIW i live in Vernon, so if anyone is interested in the car that isn't local, I can give it a look over.

NP, good luck with sale!

Btw, we have an autocross event coming up in Hartford (cartct.com) in a few weeks. Might be a good place to come and try to find some people who might be interested in a nice track car.

I'll be very interested in yours in a week or so if this potential buyer for my MSM comes through. Priced right in my target zone for a series1, good color, lightweight trim. That dent wouldn't bother me one bit.

I assume you are willing to take it for a compression test before sale?
