Default IL - 2001 Mazda Protege MP3

Getting seriously lowballed by the dealership on the trade in for this car, so I need to sell it before I can get my new car.

2001 Mazda Protege MP3
#555 of 1500 built
1276XX miles on it currently (95% highway since I got it at 92K in Nov 06)
Mostly stock:
-Viper alarm
-drop in K & N Filter
-6k HID headlights ( highbeams don't work)
-JDM style yellow foglights
-OEM Mazdaspeed Protege wheels
-OEM Mazdaspeed Protege SS Door sills
-OEM Mazdaspeed Protege clear side markers
-OEM Mazdaspeed Protege Kenwood headunit
-Previous owner was an audio nut, so the entire car has been dynomatted
-prewired for aftermarket sub (OEM came with one, PO bought the car without one.
- "grounding" kit
-3M tint on reverse part of taillights courtesy of Rich aka the clear bra guy @ DS1

Car has been insanely reliable for me! For nearly 10 months last year I was commuting 50 miles 1 way to work, hence the high miles.

New front brakes put on @ roughly 110K

Car came with free door dings and scratches. No new ones have been added. Also came with free rashed rims. I upgraded the rashing on 1 for you over 1 yr ago.

Car And Driver Review of the MP3

Car comes with service records from PO and a few from me. Brakes were done by Factory5 now know as ProFunction out of old DS1 shop. Tires installed there also. They also replaced a front LCA at about 105k IIRC. I did almost all my own oil changes at home.

Pics from the weekend I got it in NOv '06

Car sat outside 24/7 until recently when I sold my MR2. Car has not been polished since that initial weekend I got her, mostly due to the fact that it was parked outside in our new construction subdivision (lots of dust/dirt and very windy area)

I will include a free* detail of this car or another of your cars this summer for you, since I won't be able to detail it in the next few weeks.

I was able to wash her today, here are pics: Don't mind that piece of paper, in order to post a FS thread on the Mazda forum, you need a piece of paper with your screenname and the date, though I thought the pics would come out.

Click for all the pics











Scratches on DS front and rear door:


Rear DS skirt


Front PS skirt


Dents on Front PS door


The good:
-Factory Tokico Blue struts
-OEM Racing Beat springs, muffler, sway bars & retuned ECU (140 HP vrs 130 on same motor 2.0 Protege's, including the Protege5 wagon)
-I get a consistent 27-28 MPG, about 95% highway
-Quick ration steering rack makes lane changes super fast, better than my old MR2.

The bad:
-rear sway bar "clunks", a known issue with ALL MPS's and later the 03 Mazdaspeeds (same rear sway bar) There's a fix you can buy but i never cared
-Requires premium fuel (where that extra 10 HP comes from)
-will need new tires, upon inspection last night.
- Pass side power window stopped working late last fall. never got around to getting fixed over the winter, since I never roll the window down in the winter, so I never minded.
-trunk money not included


See below for the prices I get online last week for private party/retail prices. Will take best reasonable offer. I think somewhere in between $4200 and $4500 sounds about right, but offer away. Not interested in trades as I'm buying a new car once this sells.

kbb value for my zipcode (60560)
Condition Value
Excellent $6,045
Good $5,510
Fair $4,780

nadaguides:
Clean Retail Value
$5,775

*free if you come to Yokrville, will cost you a minimal gas charge if I come to you.
