Hey all, I'm here because my friend just turned me onto the Miata. I have always liked them but never considered one before. I was originally looking to get an e46 M3 but turned away when reading up on maintenance costs and such. I was then looking at BMW roadsters and coupes. "BMW fanboy much?
" When I told my buddy what I wanted he told me to buy a miata for 10k and put 10k into it and I'll be better off lol. He drives a turboed escort gt. Obviously I won't spend quite that much, but I am dead set on a miata for my summer car.
My current cars are a fully modded "minus cams" NA 2000 ZX2 S/R summer car, and a 97 BMW 328i as my winter beater. I think driving around the Bemmer all the time makes me want to ditch the FWD so bad. Once I get my own house I'll get a newer BMW but I think it will still be my DD. The miata seems like the smarter and more economical choice of car when it comes to modding. For now the ZX2 has to go!
on to the pics...
Some of you may recognize these wheels
Had to include a pic of the pedal bike
This is my sig from the ZX2 site, it is clearly to big for this site so I figured I would include it in my first post for a little more info on my cars.
