Brother, pay the $150 for an Acura Pre-Purchase Independent inspection and call it a day.

Also, there's a guy on S2KI selling a nice set of Prodrives...AND there's a guy in our very own black market selling some NSX spec newly refinished TE37 for a reasonable amount.

Just saying...
stop finding reasons not to do it. If you have the balls...

but don't be emotional, be sure you're ready to part with the Miata and to take on the additional debt. If this is bucket list shiet though, get it out of your system, enjoy for 2 years, then flip that bish and make yourelf $15K profit after you've washed/waxed and taken good pics of it.

It had an Acura inspection done on it. Apparently it came back all good (the dealership was willing to give me a copy, but I declined at this point). I'd obviously have it taken for another inspection, just to make sure.

I can't afford to mod this thing if I buy it. Not now anyway. It definitely is a bucket list car, though. I've passed it on to wifey for consideration. I feel I am getting emotional about it already and she's a good voice of reason. I honestly don't care about selling the Miata. I mean, I love that car, but owning a Mazda still just feels so foreign to me. I've been Honda all my life. I don't think i'd make 15k profit on it, even in two years. You can't put an extensively repaired NSX in the same realm of a flawless specimen.

That being said, if I bought it for 50k, I likely wouldn't lose money on it. If I could sell it in the US, I'd make money then forsure, simply due to the exchange rate.

If you buy it, you'll either be really happy or really sad.

That's too rich of a gamble for my liking.

But you should go ahead and do it. I'll come visit if you let me drive it like I stole it.





Because I'll steal it.

That NSX might end up being a pipe dream. Sales guy just told me that they took a deposit on it yesterday. Not sure if true.

Honestly, if it is still available, I'll see what kind of deal I can bargain. I've talked to a friend about it and he's telling me to low ball the shit out of it and offer 40k.

I mean, the car has been sitting for six months. The economy is fucking hurting here right now and there are no signs of it improving here, anytime soon. I think they want that car just gone. It's a collector car, so if the damages were that bad, no one will want this thing. I know they won't sell for 40, but again, I'll see what I can bargain.

I've requested the car proof. I'd still have to drive it and take it for an inspection.

Yeah I think it's just a greasy sales tactic to get me to come back in. "Buy now, or you'll miss out!!"

Fuck off, this isn't my first time buying a car. Again, I'll see what happens.

Wheels sold in a day to a fellow in Ottawa, being shipped out tomorrow. I guess I should be happy but seeing as I won't really see a penny of that money I guess its pretty bittersweet. Aw well, at least now I don't have to worry about maxing out the credit cards for another month or two.

I think it was more a matter of making life easier for myself in the coming 2 months. If my union goes on strike it will likely be at least 6 weeks until I see a full paycheque that isn't strike pay, and at the same time my parents are kind of in a financial shithole with my mom still being on long term disability pay, so I don't want to burden them any further financially if I don't have to.

Ok, wtf.... The salesguy gives me his number, I text him asking for the Car Proof report. He says ok, what's your email? I give it to him. He says he'll send it.

5 hours goes by, I text again- hey man, where's that report? "Sorry, Just been a bit tied up, will send it shortly."

Another 2.5 hours goes by, I know the dealership is fucking closed by now, and nothing.

Something shady with that dealer and that car. I can't believe they're not eager to business. I expressed a serious interest in the car. This seems like a sign to move on. Fuckdatshit.

Impossibru! It was always a link.

But you lucked out, because it actually *did* make sense.

We have higher standards. We have the RLX.

Looking at the finances it will be mid late June before I can get the wheels and coils and I'm itching to DIY.

That being said I was reading a thread on the Corvette forums and some guy carbon fiber skinned his own shit.

It's a really labor intensive project but the results were amazing. What do you think real carbon fiber, 3m carbon fiber, or just paint the interior pieces?

oh sorry i didn't get back to you re: friends coils. How do you think logistically that would work, you send the coils over, I undo and install, then pack up the TEIN's and send them back?
