    You didn't have this choice but I say buy a used NC now then buy a 2 or 3 year old ND when the time comes.

    I really like the 25 AE but it only comes with a PRHT and you really can't get a real roll bar to work with one of those.

    It appears that no one gives a crap about the original poll. If given $30K and being forced to buy a Miata, I'd go spend the money in Pahrump and then jump off a bridge . . .

    Or... wait to read the reviews on the ND miata and then decide whether you want a cheap NC or a debugged ND.

    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    Is that a carburetor? I thought carburetors went out with hand crank starters . . .

    I originally thought that too, but I read they are taking pre-orders soon in and level or trim, including Sport-manual top, if I read it correctly.

    Personally, I am hoping the ND forces the prices on the NC2s down. I am really interested in buying one of those.

    I meant that the 25 AE edition, 100 for the US, are only available with the PRHT. The other 2015s are available with either top.

    And to your other post, from what I've seen, the NC prices have finally started to come down. I think the ND will help continue that trend.
