There's something really cool about an old school brg with a turbo 1.6...its so rogue.

With that said, I'm still stuffing in a 1.8.

Thanks Hustler,

The laws in Hong Kong prohibites displacement changes. But than again, I think Turbo is also any illegal mod.

Damn

or an 1.8 repaint to BRG would work just as good.

are miatas really old enough to be a classic? I say find the rarest miata in the world and stick it under plastic, but the rest? well as long as they dont end up lowriders...

The kind of people who complain about people ruining BRG and M edition miata's are the same (stupid?) people who are going to buy them for 150,000 dollars in 20 years. What's the point, no one owns a car that will be kept in good enough condition that it's ready to be admired by all who lay eyes upon it.

Besides the market isn't run by what's rarest and saving any car for later auction is stupid. The entire classic car auction market is run entirely by what people find whimsical and nostalgic. Who cares if it's a BRG if everyone always remembers the Sunburst in their neighbor's driveway they always wanted? ...which is assuming of course that people will even want a classic miata...i mean lets face it the cars that make it in auction were before mass production really. Everyone will probably still remember the miata as a girls car 20 years from now so why would people want that then?

I highly doubt a miata would get 150K.... but will people want to buy them yes... The collector market, is more than just big-block crap.... Think about all the british stuff that gets done, like the MGs, or Jags... Doesn't always make lots of money, but people are still out there shoppin'. That's a much more comparable set of vehicles.

So will they make the big money no.... Will my car get anything... hell no.... Will there be a few cars who are granny driven with 10,000 miles yes.....

the vette was a girls car to. I still would love to cut one apart to make a dune buggy lol

just kidding.

but I honestly have my doubts about how long it would take the miata to become a true classic, if ever. its like saying dont flare those fenders thats a 95 240sx se convertible 5sp, the rarest 240 ever... who honestly will give a **** in 30 years? or better yet would they actually last 30 years, and have a healthy aftermarket for things like window rubber? cause thats when you know its a true classic, there is a aftermarket repair industry built around a 30 year old car.

M's are not BRG..... It should be the same paint found on the Speedster edition sold here -- Marina Green Mica. I know one of the m's imported here....

Only BRGs are the 91 SE, 94-97 BRG Cnd cars (yes it's the same Paint code -- yes it's BRG.... yes it's a 1.8.... I have one. <G>) There were also a few other SEs in UK market that got BRG as well.... in various years..... But I don't know them specifically....

The 01 SE in the states. Canada never got it..... The grace green stock colour was close enough for mazda canada.

BRG is a hideous color, you guys should paint them black or something.
