I’ve owned the MPS since 2008 and it’s been regularly serviced and well looked after originally by Mazda and then a local independent. Unfortunately at 48,000 miles the original engine suffered a con rod failure which destroyed the bottom half of the engine. I could have bought a second hand engine but decided to go for a brand new one from Mazda at a cost of £5k. In addition the original turbo was reconditioned by Turbo Technics who uprated the internals and replaced all the seals to remove the potential for oil leaks and the annoying puff of blue smoke these engines often give on idle. I also replaced the bottom engine mount with an uprated Corksport version and fitted a new clutch with the new engine plus a performance air filter. So whilst the car has 125k on the clock the engine has only covered 77k and has a fully documented service history under my ownership.
I always use 99RON super unleaded and it has run faultlessly since the new engine was installed with just the usual routine maintenance and replacement of consumables. There is a slight oil leak from the front diff housing which is a common problem. I will get this seen to prior to the new owner taking delivery if I get the full asking price.
In the last 6 months I’ve replaced all 4 discs and pads, had the wheels stripped and refurbished in gun metal grey and fitted new tyres all round. I’ve also replaced the pipework to the power steering fluid cooler which was corroded. Again a common issue.
I have a load of receipts for work done and the service history is as follows

Next service is due at 126k. If I get the asking price I will have the service and diff done before letting her go.
The body work is generally in good condition, there are some stone chips on the front, a couple of marks on the rear bumper area and a few minor scratches down the sides but no more than you would expect on a car of this age and mileage.
The black all leather interior is in good original condition and all the electrics work perfectly. I have both keys plus all the additional owner’s information and manuals in the original document wallet.
All in all despite the engine issues this has been a great car to own and I always enjoy driving it but after 8 years of ownership I just fancy a change. It still impresses me that a car this normal looking can be so good to drive. It’s quick off the mark and the 4 wheel drive system gives you loads of grip in all weathers. It’s a real wolf in sheep’s clothing. The only reason I’m selling is I just fancy a change and have an RS4 itch to scratch.
I’m in no rush to sell so no silly offers please and I’m not interested in a PX/swap. Happy to answer any questions and take prospective buyers out for a test drive but proof of insurance will be required if you want to drive.
Please PM me if you’re interested and I’ll send you my contact details to avoid any unwanted calls. £3250.
I'll also email some pics as i'm bug***ed if i can work out how to upload them. keep getting the error message 'You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community'!!!
