If it's possible, I would buy the one in the classifieds listed by goop. I'm not sure where you are located, but I flew from Huntsville, AL to Dallas, Tx and bought my miata. If this one had been listed for sale at the time it would be in my driveway already. I paid $5400 for mine and it was well sorted and taken care of. It drove perfectly with the LINK, but i just sold my LINK and got a diypnp.

The LINK seems like it plummeted in price after the diypnp came out. Depending on what chip and accessories you have you could sell the LINK quickly between $300 and $400.

Just a tip: I would get a ride in a couple different power levels if possible. Mine dynoed 210HP, and I just picked up my new engine from the machine shop. I'm willing to bet if I had driven a car in the 250whp range it would have been more than enough. Now my $5400 will be more like an $8400 miata.

The suspension isn't the best by any means, but it's better than stock and the shocks/springs can be sold pretty easily. I will say that it's better than half the crap you see over on clubroadster....as in Ricelands and Stance.

Maybe when you get your head out of you *** and stop being such a dumbfuck and put your location in your profile, we'll let you post in the classifieds. I don't understand why this is so difficult.
