  • 2012 Mazda 2, super fun, lots to play with

    I bought this new summer '12. ~55k miles. This car has been garaged at home and at work its whole life, so there's basically zero discoloration of any type anywhere on the car. The right side (rocker, rear quarter, new rear axle) has been properly repaired at a dealership from a minor off-road excursion. It's seen 60 minutes of track time and less than a handful of autocrosses. Everything works as it should, and if driving this car doesn't put a smile on your face then you're probably dead.

    Grippy stuff
    -Bilstein pss coilovers, currently setup with corksport adjustable rear shocks
    -Will come with stock stuff, corksport adjustable shocks/struts, and racing beat springs if desired
    -Corksport front swaybar and rear torsion bar
    -15x7.5 Konig hypergram, 205/50 nitto neogen with tons of life left

    - Window tint
    - Corksport leather shift knob
    - Factory leather steering wheel (comes stock, but I love it)
    - Weathertech floor liners: front, rear, trunk (will come with the practically unused factory mats)
    - OEM cargo net

    - Corksport skidplate (has holes for oil filter and drain plug, no longer produced)
    - Rola aero roof rack!
    - front lower airdam delete (even stock that stupid thing scraped everywhere)
    - front OE mud guards
    - PIAA headlight and foglight bulbs

    - Corksport short shift plate
    - Urethane filled OE rear motor mount
    - AWR rear motor mount (not installed)
    - Hot Pipes stainless steel catless header (unused, not installed, rare item)
    - Corksport cat-back exhaust with race pipe (no longer produced, great sound and not loud)
    - Corksport intake with cold air duct
    - Custom tune by Orange Virus
    - Redline MTL
    - Oil changes every 5k

    - centric premium rotors
    - Stoptech pads
    - stainless lines
    - corksport pads (not installed, used for less than 100 miles)
    - Valvoline Synthetic high temp brake fluid

    $7950 takes everything

    I have always loved this car. I bet it is a great daily.

      It certainly is, best/most fun daily I've owned. Unfortunately, between my family, my other hobbies, and my track car it just doesn't make much sense to hang onto it any more. My plan is to replace this and my beater outback (which lately is the family road-trip mobile) with a nicer outback xt. At some point I'd like to replace the miata with something like a brz (or e36 m3, rx8, etc) that I can track and drive to work occasionally (which means kid pick-up and/or drop-off).

              Thanks. Seems like it's going to a good home (in california). He's also got a miata with itbs, works from home and walks his kid to school. I have a feeling it will be getting some more exciting mods in the future.
