1999 Type RS
« on: October 25, 2017, 12:47:27 PM »
1999 RX7 TYPE RS in Polar white (Colour code PT)

Imported in August 2011 and owned by me since September 2011 so I’m the second owner after the importer. Nothing has been spared on the maintenance of the car, which has been my pride and joy. Rolling road with print out was carried out when I took ownership and it was producing 315bhp. It starts perfectly hot or cold and pulls very well through all the gears and stops just as well. The car is straight and in a great condition but does have some small stone chips and signs of being almost 18 years old.

Mileage history taken from MOT certificates is:
6.8.2011      44,784
25.7.2012      47,928
29.1.2014      51,942
2.2.2015      55,262
20.1.2017      58,252
Current mileage   59,421
Under 2500 miles a year for the last 6 years due to being covered and garaged for many months a year.

All the usual post 1999 face lift Type RS refinements including the large brakes, Bilstein suspension, the upgraded front bumper, new turbo set up, simplified solenoid and vacuum system.

Additional extras include:
Full Stormforce all weather cover with storage bag,
Front fog lights, 
Upgraded HID headlight bulbs with neatly fitted and wired in Ballast units which work on both high and low beam,
LED interior bulbs,
Clear side indicators,
Padded arm rest on center console,
Drivers door flip up lid box intact,
Aero wipers all round,
2 x Mazda Keys with 2 x immobilizer fobs
Bridgestone Potenza tires’ all around with plenty of meat on them,
Hornet Maxx 1 Category 1 alarm and immobilizer,
Bose acoustic wave unit in the boot which works great and Bose door speakers with inbuilt amps bypassed to allow them to run with the double din Pioneer AVIC-930BT touch screen Sat Nav system with neatly fitted and well hidden ND-BC5 rear facing reversing camera.
After market D1 steering wheel,
Jasma approved Stainless Steel Cat back exhaust.

List of works that all have receipts and history include:
August 2011 Compression test showing 8.4-8.1 Fwd and 8.0 – 7.7 aft rotor.
October 2011 All oils and filters changed, rolling road carried out with print out.
November 2011 Bilstein dampers removed, sent back to Bilstein for refurbishment and re-gassing and re-fitting. All rear bushes and toe joint bushes replaced with OEM, all silicone hoses replaced, new clutch and new rear main oil seal fitted.
June 2012 New front windscreen fitted to remove slight stone chips
July 2012 Full service with oil, filters and plugs
April 2013 New OEM solenoid box
March 2014 Engine rebuilt with new seals and springs including all fluids (Reworks carried out the work)
Feb 2015 4 alloy wheels refurbished
Sept 2015 Oil, filters and plugs
October 2016 Oil, filter and plugs
Oil and filter change 12.6.2017
Full valet 28.6.2017 with interior, engine bay, wheel arches and full machine polish with application of a 6 month paint protection system.

Sorry for that, i was more focused on the pics being too big and forgot to tell you the price.

Im looking for 15k, but will be interested to hear the groups view on the current value.

I am in NO rush ( or need to see) so I will not be even entertaining offers i think are low.

thanks
