SD 09' RX8 R3 Aurora Blue - 60.8k miles, a few mods - SOLD

Year: 2009
Make: Mazda
Model: RX-8
Price: $6000
Mileage: 60800
Color: Aurora Blue
Private or Dealer Listing: Private Listing
Location (US State/Canada/Int): SD

Sadly I am looking to sell my RX8. I have had alot of fun with this car, but I just don't have the room for it currently.

Sorry for the car being dirty in the photos, it rained the night before and it was outside

It has 60k miles and starts right away, and runs great. I haven't had any mechanical issues with it. Which is why I was surprised when I got the compression test done recently. The results say that the first test was 6.8, 6.8. 6.7 and test 2 was 7.1, 7.0, 6.7

It still starting up right away and I am not noticing any performance issues.

The mods I have done are not too drastic, but are as follows:

1. BHR Ignition Coils
2. BHR Catless Midpipe
3. Racing Beat Rev8 exhaust
4. Seibon TS-Style Carbon Fiber hood (matte)

Unfortunately I have had a couple of issues come up with it that I have not fixed yet...

1. as you can see in one photo, the driver rear corner has a slight scuff on it where someone caught it in the parking lot I assume, and the small piece of lens missing from the tail light.

2. The passenger window motor is going out.

3. the low coolant light will come on briefly once in awhile, but the coolant is full.


If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you!

Wish this had been available in February; would have bought this instead. Looks like a good daily car that is clean but isn't too pristine not to enjoy. Good luck with the sale, hopefully you are on to another fun ride to take its place.

Knowing RPM from the compression test will be important. Sounds like the challenges so far are fairly minor though.

No, all of them are stock wheels, I think it is just due to the angle of the sun in the photo, I could take another if you would like

Thanks, I appreciate it! I had it in storage back at my parents all winter while I was trying to decide what to do with it. I bought a BMW m235i last fall at a great price, so that is what is taking the place of it. Twin-turbo is fun

No worries, I was just curious. Trying to search for friends to pick this up. If I didnt have a blue 09 myself Id be all over this right now.

Oooh good choice! Though I get flak for it, I actually prefer the M235i to the M2. I had an E92 335i M-Sport, was a treat of a car and one I'd happily own again (if any survive their 2nd owners).

I also have 2x Blizzak Winter tires that are in pretty good condition that I will sell pretty cheap with the car. I had the tires for if I had to drive the car in the winter if the truck was broke down or just wanted to have a little fun.

Winter tires + subwoofer + 2x 45lb sandbags and I never got stuck at all

tire size: 225/40zr19
