A little backround- I currently drive a 2005 Hyundai Tiburon which I have owned for 6 years so I am ready for a new car. I have been lurking this site trying to gather as much information as I can before I take the big step of buying my first miata and it has come the time to make my first post.
I don't own a miata yet but I have been looking for about 6 months and I think I found one that would work for me. The car in question being a 1997 R Package. I spoke to the previous owner and he gave me the best information he could with what he knew about it. My plans with the car is to have it as my daily driver.
1997 R package
60,000 miles on turbo build
Flyin Miata turbo with tuner
-Not sure what stage kit
Flyin Miata Suspension upgrades
-Body brace under the hood
Hard dog Rollbar
Upgraded fuel pump and injectors
-Previous owner didn't know what size because owner before him installed them
So I had a few questions before I pulled the trigger. Knowing that it is a R package, meaning no Power steering, would it be difficult to use this car as a daily driver? Is the mileage on the turbo build (60,000) alot? Also is there anything you guys can tell from the pictures or information that I have provided that would be worrisome? The car is 400 miles away and I wanted to get all information I could before I go check it out.
Any help at all would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks and I hope to join the community soon.
