according to DVLA the mot ran out in 2008 so it's been off the road for 10 yrs, not 7.

Autotrader Dec 2007 £995. Pistonheads were rude about it. 'Shed of the Week'. Seemed unfair at the time.

Good memory!! W(p. Had to go and look it out... And I think the rx8 Had just come out around 2007 so there's not as much rotary love/knowledge on pistonheads this year, and the comments show it.

yay I'm pleased to report that C999 EWN that I mentioned a few pages back has just arrived with a rotorhead friend of mine in Wiltshire :) He currently owns a track focussed FD and a unique, home built Westfield with an RX-8 engine. He's no stranger to Mazda rotaries, having had a few RX-8's too.

Why did he reject £5600 and then sell it for £4600 when it was relisted
Because it was not a real bid
Back on Ebay for £5950
