Parts for sale / For sale: New Concept 7 ducktail spoiler
« on: September 10, 2016, 03:06:58 PM »
As per title, for sale: Concept 7 'ducktail' boot lid spoiler.

The spoiler is brand new and has been prepped at a bodyshop.
The top of the spoiler has had a couple of coats of additional high build primer which was then flatted, to give the paint on the face of the spoiler as best finish as possible. (Hence the '2 tone' looks :D )

Only reason I haven't used it is because I have a Shine carbon spoiler which I purchased before this spoiler was painted.

Price: £130 collected (or plus delivery)

All the best,

Good evening all,

For sale:

A set of rare genuine 17" Type RZ BBS alloys with original BBS centre caps and all fitted with brand new Bridgestone Potenza tyres.



These wheels came off my 1993 RZ and are the real deal. Made by BBS for Mazda for use on the early RX7 Type RZ.

Spec:

Front: 2 x 17x8.0" ET50 235/45/17

Rear: 2 x 17x8.5" ET50 255/40/17


Condition

For their age they are generally in very good condition.

The main issue is the lacquer on the polished lip, which could do with being redone but aside from this they are very clean.

The wheels are 100% original and have not been repainted or reconditioned in any way. The faces and inner barrels are very clean as can be seen I the photos.

There is a small curb dink on one of the front wheels (not from me) but I don't believe there to be any others.

As with most RZ items, these don't come up for sale very often and being from the earlier model RZ, I believe this would make them even less common.

Price:

£750 collected (Location: West Midlands)



Photos:

Have tried to take a wide range to show these as good as possible.

Fitted:






Centre Caps:





Outer:




Inner:






Stamps:








Wheel 1:







Wheel 2:







Wheel 3:







Wheel4:







Tyres:











Any questions, please feel to drop me a PM.


Cheers guys,

Hey guys & girls :)

For sale:
A full set of 0 miles Rota Grid Drift alloys (without tyres) in Hyper Black.



Wheel spec:
2 x 18x9.5 ET 30
2 x 18x9.5 ET 20

Description:
I bought these brand new, 0 miles (but as ex-display rims) and had them sent straight to my bodyshop to be repainted in a Hyper Black / Metallic Graphite.
As such, they are now 0 miles wheels with brand new paintwork and haven't been fitted since they were painted.

Being the 9.5" width, they have the most concave face available on the Grid Drift so both front and rear have a nice rake inwards to them & hopefully this can be seen in the photos.

Why the sale?
I bought them to fit my car with a stock body but the project has since advanced and now have Feed front & rear arches so they are now not wide enough for what I require.

I have included a selection of photos of them in various lights to attempt to demonstrate how they look & to try and show off the color of them now as it really is eye catching in the light.
There are no marks, no damage, not even scrapes on the bolt holes since they haven't been fitted since paint, so the face condition is excellent. I've tried to show this with close up photos of each wheel.

(The white 'stuff' on the wheel in any of the pics is just the fitting paste from having the tyres fitted. I made sure there was gallons of the stuff on them at the time to make sure the tyres went on without issue :D) again, tyres are not included in the sale

Price: £700 collected

Photos:





Wheel 1 (18x9.5 ET+30):


Wheel 2 (18x9.5 ET+30):


Wheel 3 (18x9.5 ET+20):


Wheel 4 (18x9.5 ET+20):

Rotary and General Chit-Chat / Type RZ worth?
« on: September 02, 2015, 08:21:48 AM »
Good morning all,

Was just a quick question for you,

Roughly what price would I be looking at for an earlier type RZ ('94) with average millage.
- No rebuild that there is documentation on
- Reportedly good compression stats, but without any documentation indicating it i'm not taking this as a definite.
- Car started without any issue was my only guide on this.

I might have the opportunity to buy one but with how much the prices vary on autotrader, pistonheads etc. and these cars not being an RZ, i'm not sure what ballpark I should be in.

Think I posted in the wrong section previously so please ignore that post, will try & edit/remove (sorry).


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers all,
CJ

Cars for Sale / Wanted: On lookout for a Rx7 (FD)
« on: August 29, 2015, 12:44:09 PM »
Hi there all,
I am currently on the lookout for a rex and thought here would be a good place to start!
I've come from a nap car background and the rx7 has always been one of those cars I've wanted but never owned.

Have watched a few come and go and seen the prices vary a fair amount, but i'll put a v. rough idea of where I'm at with what I'm looking for, still learning about the car & its variations so apologies it's very high level.

FD model
Rebuild carried out with docs to prove
Budget, around £6000

I know that's rather high level atm but found its easier to keep it that way when looking initially.

If you have anything then please let me know if you have anything that would be great.

Cheers all,
CJ

Rotary and General Chit-Chat / Reliability
« on: November 10, 2006, 01:45:31 PM »
Well i was looking to get an RX7 as its been "the" car i have always wanted and now im at the age i can afford to insure one without stupid quotes.

BUT

I have been reading around on the forum and i am starting to doubt the cars reliability. I have noticed a lot of you dislike your cars because of the engine and how "prone to big problems" it is.

I know the rotary engine works a lot different and there are problems with all engines. But i don\'t want to buy a car with a rebuilt engine, only to find i have to pay more large sums of money on the engine.

I still really want one but would like to see what you guys think. How reliable are your cars?
(note: i wouldn\'t be tuning the car too much, maybe new air filters, plugs, small things).

General Technical / Need help with something on the forum
« on: November 07, 2006, 02:32:09 PM »
Now i know the is bound to be in the wrong section, but i couldnt find anywhere i should post it. So please dont shout at me for this being in the wrong place. Someone can delete it as soon as i know the answer to this.

Well basically its a forum problem im having in that i cannot send PM\'s. I get some kind of message about having restrictions on my account. Is it because i am not a paid member on the forum?

Sorry again about the wrong section thing

Insuring your rotary / 21 1 yrs no claims 2years full licence under £1600?
« on: November 04, 2006, 11:19:58 PM »
Now ive read countless threads on here about insuring an rx7 (anthony\'s post with that all inclusive long list looked very helpful in narrowing down the bogger names) and i wanna make sure that i am likely to be able to afford the insuance before i buy the car this time. Got stung last time with the mr2 - import, modified, bought then looked for insurance :S stupid me.

i want a 3rd gen, import and would be modifying it so the insurance would need to allow for modifications (nothing under the bonnet really, maybe filter) but bodykit & alloys.

Do any of you guys (with your more experiance in rx terratory than me) think i will be able to find fully comp insurance low crime post code for the car for under around £1600?

If so, any companies that you guys have had good quotes from?
(dont mean to sound like im repeating a soooo comman asked question but this is the only place i could think to ask about insuring :) )

Appreciate any help guys.

Chris
