WTT: 05 RX-8 6spd for 05 Elise (Texas)

Yes, it's another for trade ad...sorry guys. I made the mistake of driving SilvElise's 06 supercharged Elise here in Dallas so now I'm hooked.

I've been trying to sell my RX-8 in hopes to buy an Elise for a while and had no luck after a few flakes. Thought I'd try and see if someone happens to need a more family oriented sports car and some cash in exchange for their 05 Elise.

My car is a 2005 Winning Blue RX-8 6spd with 17,400 miles. Bumper to Bumper factory warranty till April 2010 and powertrain till April 2011. Mint condition, sport package, appearance package, rotary accents, Koni shocks, Mazdaspeed springs. Fully maintained and ready to drive.

KBB is a bit over 19K, realistic market value is around 18.5. Looking for an 05 Elise with reasonable miles with at least Touring valued in the high 20's to the low 30's. Willing to put up 15K cash on top of the RX-8 for the Elise ($33K range)

PM me if interested. If I see no interest I will let this die down in a week or so. Feel free to call me directly at 214 277 3613 or email me ([email protected]). The car is in Dallas, TX.

Thanks guys!

Joseph

I never understoood trades. I mean, if you want to get rid of a car, what's wrong with selling it privately and then buying an Elise?

I would get requests when selling cars to trade it for all kinds of things I didn't want.

I doubt anyone is going to trade their Elise for an RX8.

P.S. no discussion here.

If you had an 06/07 maybe, the 8 is worth about 19K, add 20 on top and you're near 40 for an 05 Elise? If you're serious and have some room to negotiate, PM me I see you're also in TX.

RX-8 is sold, now looking for an 05/06 Elise (05 in the high 20's low 30's, 06 in the low 30's depending on mileage, packages etc).

Update: RX-8 sold, bought an Elise to arrive this week.
