Im pretty tempted to sell my 97 daily driver and pick up a clean NB to roll around with when I don't feel like dealing with loudish exhaust, rattles and clunks, shitty paint, leaky softtop, fear of breaking things, overly aggressive clutch, and a fast as hell, but slightly less that comfortable turboed NA.

OTOH, ive been looking into something a bit more practical like a 90s VW golf, civic hatchback/wagon, or even a kia ... lol

If was getting a 2nd car it would be a small diesel. A VW diesel, TDI something or other. Anything that got good gas mileage and had a quiet interior with the possibility of carrying more than two people.

I would want to drive a VW GTI - V in TDI. In europe there are many options for these engines.... upto ALOT of HP. i would say 450 would be just enough.

BTW. I'll never sell my Miata. lol
