I'm glad people post in this thread.

FYI, because of the limited production (and the fact that I baby mine) some insurances will list the Shinka as a Collectors/Classic insurance category.

Yay $20 a month!

Time to sell my beautiful Shinka

I've made a decision to sell my black cherry Shinka...it pains me but my daughter and son in law need a family car and I'd like to help them get one. Mine is a 6 speed manual 2005 with 72,000 miles, all the bells and whistles. It is in perfect shape, garage kept, only driven in warm months. Anyone know what I should expect to get for it?

Unfortunately the is very little demand for the RX8 in general. The internet says anywhere between $5-$8k would be the norm. For a Shinka in pristine condition I think $12,000 would be absolute max that it would go for...and that would really depend on finding a real fanatic.

Perhaps they will start going for more at some of these fancy car auctions I keep seeing on TV.

Bronze wheels?

Hey folks, have you noticed how Black Cherry Mica reveals a subtle bronze-ish tint in certain light? I'm wondering if perhaps wheels with a bronze color in them might work well.
(I like - but don't love - my OEM Shinka wheels. I'm totally into handling, so have thought about getting lighter wheels to significantly reduce unsprung weight. Maybe even… gasp… 17s!)

Mine didn't! I got it a few months ago with 39k on the clock lol. body needs some TLC, but I'm waiting patiently to do a Genuine Mazdaspeed front bumper and skirts and the Re-amemiya rear bumper. Once mine does need a rebuilt I'll probably end up 13brew swapping it. If it's still good by next winter I'll just take it out and store it and swap the brew in. Then swap it back out if I ever decide I want to sell it lol

Thanks! I've been taking good care of her Amsoil Sabre Pro Fully Synthetic for premix. Also used Amsoil 10W-40 and an Amsoil Pro oil filter when I changed the oil. Changing the trans and diff fluid to Redline. Scheduled an appointment with a Paintless dent repair shop to get these little dings taken out. And ordering some Zaino car detailing supplies and some 3000 and 5000 grit sandpaper to give her rough spots a nice wet sand and polish to bring the depth back to the paint Will post pics once it's all said and done

If I were to ever get a a second one (never say never), it would be this color, no question ❤
