Default Looking to buy my first Miata, help please. Is this actually an M edition?

Edit: Doesn't matter now, the car sold.






Trying to figure out if this car really is the "M edition". I read somewhere that the 2005 M edition is the purple burgundy (Merlot Mica), but this car is blue.

The dealer has it listed as an M-edition though, also does not have the BBS wheels.



What do you all think?

Yeah, that is a good idea. I put the VIN on a vin search site, but it didn't give me the trim level.

Dealer was not able to help me but he did tell me the paint code for the VIN was 6W, being:

Laguna Blue = Perky Blue, Paint code 6W


So the paint is stock, but the M edition was not in laguna blue in 1995.


Sigh.
