Hoping to stay under 3k. An eclipse that looks well maintained just popped up, but is overpriced. Has an 02 code, and guys asking 2900 for a car with 188k miles lol. Book value is like 1800 for excellent condition.
I want to learn to drive stick in a car I can enjoy a little. Being able to sell it in a couple of years for about what I paid is a huge plus. That's why I was thinking about the miata.
I like the MR2 as well, but was spooked by talk of snap understeer. Don't know shit about the prelude.
I'd prolly want to mess with the miata asap.
Vader, greddy doesn't have miata turbo kits anymore.
