eBay This listing is for my 2005 Mazda RX-8 Sport Automatic. It has very low miles and in fantastic condition. It was recently detailed and has a full ceramic coating (CQuartz 3.0 UK, which the highest rated coating available). The car has been garaged since new, and it shows. I would give the car a 9/10. If PDR was done to correct a few small imperfections, it would be close to a 9.5. The car is stunning and gets lots of attention when we have it out.
The color is Winning Blue with grey/black cloth interior. It is nicely optioned with an automatic transmission with paddle shifters on the steering wheel, Bose audio system, slide/tilt sunroof, traction/stability control and self-leveling xenon headlights. The back seats in these cars are extremely usable, even for a full sized adult. The interior was also freshly detailed and the carpets were re-dyed. The entire interior was steam cleaned and the car has no odors or scents. The car shows like it is only a couple of years old. The air conditioning is ice cold.
The current mileage is 72,340 miles and the engine is believed to have been replaced at around 56,262 miles at Oxmoor Mazda in Louisville, KY when it was in their used car inventory. It has a late production remanufactured engine tag as shown in the photos. It runs perfectly and starts within 2-3 seconds regardless of temperature and how long it sits. Below is a link to the car hot starting immediately and after heat soaking.

The wheels are in excellent condition with limited curb rash. The tires are Cooper Zeon RS3-G1 in 245/45/18, which looks far better than the stock size. We have verified the speedometer versus GPS and it is spot on, even with the slightly larger rolling diameter of these tires. All of the tires have 90%+ tread left and have a manufacture date of mid-2016.
It has a fresh oil change and new front brakes and rotors.
The engine compartment looks like new and was recently steam cleaned.
The power door lock actuators are both not working. The door locks work fine but the power function isn’t working. This is a common issue and can be fixed with a $30 part per door. Also, it is missing the lower lip on the bumper. Because this is missing, the lower engine splash shield is off but is included in the sale. Since it is such a common replacement item, the lip is available on eBay, painted to match the car for around $240. The price of the car reflects these issues.
If you are looking for a no-excuses, rust free RX-8, you have found what you are looking for. This has to be one of the nicer RX-8’s left. It looks, runs and drives as nice as you’ll find for a 13-year car.
This care is being sold as is with no warranties expressed or implied. A $500 deposit is required within 48 hours of the end of the auction. The car must be picked up within 14 days of the auction completion. If it isn’t picked up within 14 days, storage of $200/week will be charged to the buyer. Sorry, I have had a bad experience where someone paid for a car and didn’t pick it up for two months.
