Hi, I have a 2008 Mazdaspeed3 Grand Touring, 104,000 miles. Has all the bells and whistles with the highest trim level - automatic Xenon headlamps, foglights, auto wipers, auto-dim + compass mirror, navigation system, SiriusXM satellite radio (although I have that turned off currently).

I'm interested in trading the Mazdaspeed for a 1.6 Miata + cash. I've owned the car for 3 years, since 60k miles (I'm the second owner) and it has been a great car - absolutely reliable, haven't had a single problem with it of any sort. 280 ft. lbs. of torque, six-speed manual gearbox, four doors, 31+ mpg on the highway, and hatchback style and cargo room can't be beat.

It is due for tires and front pads and rotors now, so we can work something out about that, and you can choose what shoes to put on it.

Car is located in north/central FL.

Complete enough to get me to work and back without drama or embarrassment...

Here's an iPhone-stuck-in-the-headrest in-car video from an autocross at SGMP in 2010, a month or so after I got the car. Took me a while to learn that the throttle isn't to be used as an on-off switch like in the Miata...MZR Turbo goodness requires a bit more care...

I can put a complete 1.6na Miata together in a weekend. With recent timing belt and water pump service. No cash to put on top though and it would really need a new top.

Good to know Spinout! I will keep you in mind if I end up selling without a trade. Thanks!
