      Hey guys. I have a 1996 Miata that I'm looking to trade or sell right now. I need something a bit more practical so this is gonna have to go. I love the thing and haven't had it for too long so I'll be sad to see it go already, but I will have time for another one in the future.

      140k on it

      Good:
      -Runs mint, shifts minter
      -NEW valve cover gasket, cam angle seal gasket, and the dreaded rear heater hoses. All fixed 2k ago.
      -MINT hardtop with defroster (not pictured)
      -Comes with tonneau cover and wind blocker
      -Has 5 spoke period correct Borbets
      -NO rust. The main reason I bought this car was solely because it doesn't have a speck of rust. 99% of New England Miatas have at the least a bit of rust on the rear of the rockers...this looks new.
      -Interior is pristine except for some fraying on the drivers side bolster

      Bad:
      -A few small dings and dents. No real scratches. There is a noticeable dent on the passenger side fender, but it looks repairable. Nothing else too noticeable except the occasional parking ding.
      -Typical clearcoat peel on the rear plate tray
      -Front bumper has Miata dimples and some bug splatter
      -Soft top is only a few years old, but is a glass window replacement. Top is mint, however the glass has separated from the bottom of the top. Probably an easy fix for anyone who knows what they are doing, but I just run the hardtop. Luckily, the car barely gets wet inside when the hardtop isn't on and it rains.
      -Taillight running lights and plate lights stopped working for some reason. This might be fixed soon, but everything else works 100%. If I can't figure it out, it is probably an easy repair for someone with more knowledge or can just be fixed by hardwiring a switch in.
      -Slight fraying on drivers side bolster





      I'm either looking for $5200 obo cash as it sits, or $4200 without the hardtop. I have a set of Euro Ecode H4s made by Hella I could throw in for an extra $50, and I may have a brand new in box set of Megan Racing EZ Streets that I could throw in or sell separately for a price I haven't determined.

      Also VERY interested in trades. B5 Passats and A4s ESPECIALLY wagons are high on the list as long as they are manual. B5 S4s are also wanted. Mk5 Rabbits/Jettas would be nice, and I would possibly consider a Mk4 of some sort but not high on my priority list. I'd also consider a car + cash, or depending on your offer, my car + cash.

      PM me/post here/email me at affrct@gmail.com

      Thanks

      Oh, come on. This is my favorite Miata color, the price is fair, and I am way, way too busy in life right now to waste your time trying to arrange to pick this up.

      Oh I've got all the time in the world (well, maybe not all of it).

      I've got two people interested. They will probably flake but if you can figure out a plan by the time they do flake you can get it

      I haven't really touched the car, just been driving it once a week or so since I've been driving my friends GTI. So yeah, the tail lights are still out. I pretty much narrowed it down to it being the headlight switch though I believe.
