Default FS/FT: 03.5 Mazdaspeed Protege

Im looking to get back into a miata as I miss it too much. I really like this car but its gotta go. What I have is a super clean, 51k original miles 03.5 Mazdaspeed Protege with a clean title no accident history. I got the car with the intention of keeping it for a long time and as a result, I pretty much fixed all of the issues the car had stock. No obnoxious stock fuel cut. No ridiculously rich fuel issues. No bogging. No ridiculous engine mount flex in the rear. Its the best and cleanest MSP I have yet to see in many years. I still have the stock Sparco Shift **** which is what will come with the car but youll have to get a shift extender as the threading on the short shifter isnt long enough to catch on the stock shift ****. The Re Amemiya shift **** in the pics does not come with the car.

1. Street Unit rear aluminum engine mount
2. Custom welded Aluminum Intercooler Hardpipes
3. ETS Side aluminum mount intercooler
4. 3 inch exhaust with no CAT (engine light is on because of it and disconnected VICS)
5. Hallman Pro MBC set to 10 psi
6. Split Second Fuel Controller
7. Autometer 20psi Vac/Boost Gauge
8. Falken Tires with 6k miles on them
9. Ralco Short Shifter
10. Corksport Bonze shifter bushings
11. AEM Uego Wideband
12. New Coil Packs and Spark plug wires
13. Redline Tranny and Diff fluids

The afrs are perfect and set to ramp up to 11.5 at 10psi. Idle, turbo, engine is all perfect. I am the third owner and the car has been garage kept most of its life before I got it. The interior looks and still smells new. What Im looking for is to either do a straight trade for an NA/NB or NC or out right sell the car. In this condition I have no qualms about asking 7300k obo for it so we can start there I guess in regards to trade value.

Bump for a super handling FWD car. 70mph slalom, 0.88 on the skidpad. Despite the Boy Racer looks, these things can perform. I had a Ti Grey with built block, GT28RS, PAR spur-cut trans, etc. The Split Second unit is super easy to tune, and does what it should. GLWS.

I haven't seen one for sale this clean and well done in years so I don't know. I feel it's worth every penny and so do a couple of others who own msps. You'd have to know these cars to understand just how good this one is

Damn that sucks. I'll never get one of these cars again. It's so frustrating trying to sell it

That's the other thing. Is it really that hard to get a loan these days? Two people bailed because they couldn't get one

Most car loans require that a car is 10 years old or less. You could use a personal loan for older cars, but some (many?) banks do not offer personal/emergency loans.
