Is the Miata at a dealership? I was under the impression that it was a private sale, but I dunno...

Two private individuals, from what I can tell. No dealership involved.

Surface rust is acceptable for a snow-state. We don't all have a pristine collection of NC cars to choose from.

For snow handling, get a set of winter wheels/snow tires. Pass jeeps and 4x4 trucks on the freeway all day long. The TORSEN loves the snow.

If the $6500 is KBB trade-in, then you'll be doing very well to get $5500. KBB doesn't buy cars. Good luck getting a dealership to honor KBB trade-in values, especially on a modified car.
Im just hoping for $1500 thats all

Starting to sound like it's at a dealership.... I would stay away. Find one privately owned and sell your VW privately. No point in getting reamed by a dealer
