Default 2005 Miata Limited??

I may catch some flack for this, but I believe I have the limited. It has the extra body pieces, and everything my 94 didn't have. I'm not Miata expert, but I loved the car enough to buy a second one.

My first Miata was a black 94 with tan interior. I initially bought the car because it was the cheapest economical car that was actually a cool car. I enjoyed doing minor upgrades to it when I had a little extra money. I had left a 10 year military career behind to go to nursing school. I sold the car 3 years later and have regretted it ever since. I bought it with 152,00 original miles and sold it for 200 more than I paid for it with 223,000 miles. That still amazes me til this day, and the guy who bought it said it was his 3rd Miata. He had totalled 2 and walked away from both accidents injury free.

Anyway, I now have a beautiful 2005 Nordic Green (I believe that's what they call it) with tan leather and a great bose system. It has 16 inch aftermarket rims and tires and a K&N from the previous 1 owner. I bought it with 69,000 miles on it for 9000 back in April. It's in great shape and runs even better. It has noticeably more power than my 94. I live for on/and off ramps and curvy roads. Never in my life have I driven a car that handles so well.

I dream of the day when I can do something to upgrade the HP but that will take time. Gotta have the money to play with and considering I bought the car to save money on gas now is not the time LOL. I have a Titan truck that was costing 6-700 gas a month and now I'm spending maybe 200 at most and I love to drive it.

I'm glad to be here and love reading on the forums and now I won't get blocked after reading so many posts since I'm an official member. I'm no expert by any means, but look forward to learning more about a car that has brought out my inner child.
