Look, I don't care what it looks like at this point, can anyone show me one for around $10-15 that will WORK? The inside portion of mine was apparently brittle plastic that just snapped. And now I have to change my AC controls with a pair of pliers I keep in the glove box.
Fixed mine by adding a fuel injector grommet around the fragile plastic stem inside the ****. 8 years later, still kicking. If the stem is still there, you cam fix it.

Hello everyone, i've been a long fan of Rx7 but since the price of rx7 in my country is illogical and dumb (i mean heck rx8 still cost around $18k USD). Thats not the point, i still love rx8 and i think they are really great looking and practical (as in 4 seater, good transporter yada yada yada) the question is getting mt with little modification but way older (2004 have a lot of m/t, the youngest i can find is 2006) or get a much younger 2009-2012 rx8 but in automatic (which sucks because i want a younger but have manual transmision) the price difference is not that high that i would actually care about it tbh, Its only 5-8k usd. Im ready for engine rebuild (or swap to 2jz, as i know the mechanic that can do it). So the main problem is old mt compared to young at. I know age is not the best indicator and i should do compression test but its a starting point i guess. Also the series 2 (especially the r3) looks way better than the series 1.

any advice?

FD RX-7 is expensive anywhere you go, really.

It all comes down to if you prefer MT.

MT RX-8 is generally a better value. AT RX-8 not only has lower redline and 20 less HP, but the lower trims also lack the LSD, and all ATs have the steel prop shaft(MTs have carbon fiber ones), only 1 oil cooler, among other things. RX-8 is built with an MT in mind, with the AT being an afterthought.
