Sorry Josh, but I just had to pinch your title.

After almost 2 years of wanting and dreaming about a Miata, sitting in NA's and driving NC's, tossing around the possibilities, reading various forums, going to car shows, I finally ordered a 2008 Miata Touring PRHT 6 speed manual in True Red. Going to built in Oct and arrive sometime in Feb 08.

Not sure yet what to do yet about my Yellow P5 but she's still humming.

Let the waiting begin.

Congrats bro! Spring time is going to be a blast. Another red in the club. We might need to change our name with something to do with that color.

Woot!!! Nice Bruce and yeah, you got patience. I don't think I could wait that long. haha But alas, I will have to wait for those pics.

So trading the P5 in or going to sell her outright?

Thanks all. Defintely worth the wait, only way to get the PRHT the way you want.

Oleg, I will definitely be looking for you when she comes in!!

As for aftermarket, I have already been building a list:

205/45-17 Pirelli SnowSport 240's
Mazdaspeed Coilovers
Mazdaspeed bodykit
Racing Beat Exhaust and Intake
Moss Trunk Rack
New JDM Fly

I going to drain the kids college fund!!

As for the P5, I have a boatload of mixed feelings. She has over 150k on her and she is still running strong. I figure she will be at 160K by the time the Miata comes in. She still is a blast to drive, gets great gas mileage and still looks great thanks to the NEPOC guys at the spring clean at Mark's.

I will probably put her up for private sale and if no takers will let my daughters drive her, sort of keep it in the family.

Don't forget the RX-8 stock manual sway bars--I can those to ya now :)

I'm glad that the P5 is running strong at 150K! When you put it up for private sale, let us know here, so we can ask our friends around.

What are the options on the PRHT?

What made you go for Touring instead of Sport?

Touring is the same mechanicals as the GT, 6 Speed and suspension package.

GT is leather, I don't like leather, plus a bunch of other stuff I don't want but mainly the leather.

Right, forgot about the RX8 sways, yes those too!!
