Local salvage yard....unrecorded and listed as engine failure....fsh and just outta mot. Plonked outside my house waiting for me when i got home from work. Bought from a few photos on the net. Opps.
She is rather doggy in places and has prob all the rx8 common issues. Rad light on. Steering light flicker when using steering wheel. Cat sounds dead. 74k maybe low comp poor hot starting have not got that far yet. Few rust spots in the usual places. Plan is to fix up fresh mot n service...she now has brand new coils & leads and after a very lengthy deflood as engine was full of fuel it mustve been nearly hydro locked she fired after some extensive cranking. Sounds sweet needs a good hooning ....9 owners in 11 years. not sure what im gonna do with my sprayer mate is interested as a weekend toy so prob let him have for cost and a drink on top.

Damn, really good find. :sign0098: And tempted to take it from you ;)

I have message to your misses; It could be worse, you could be a Ford fanatic  :c002:

Bargain for £300 :13: . Even if it had been a dud and you'd broken it for parts,you would have been able to make a profit.
