That is good advice. But the Jetta is newer, doesn't look beat on and has a higher value than your car. So think to yourself, what is the Jetta owner getting out of the deal? Why doesn't he sell the car for $4500 and get a way better miata than yours?

Sounds to me like there is the inspection II coming, or things like timing chain or clutches soon. If its too good to be true...... But then you sound like a tool. So take the trade and bye bye

I really doubt an e30 is a good idea if you not looking to spend a lot of money. Honestly those cars are so old at this point they are going to need a lot of investment to get them in good running condition.

I really dont see and older jetta being attractive to a lot of people when you go to sell it. Go for the car you want, don't give your self more issues.

I had a mk3 Jetta for a while, 2.0 5 speed, 212k miles on it and I never had an issue with it... I don't know why they have such a bad rep on here, but I loved mine.

Every once and a while a good one slips through the cracks in the factory.

Ive owned two e30's. Both which were an absolutely horrible experience, and I would never ever consider another. Plus the miata is sooo much better to drive. "gods chariot" my ass.

That being said, I have also owned a turbo'd e21 and a slammed e28, both great experiences. Still love the brand

What part of a MK3 is an MK4?

E30s are nice cars...if you have a ton of cash laying around and a shit load of free time.

And if you had a ton of cash laying around, you wouldn't be trying to trade your way up to (or is that DOWN to?) one.

If someone gave me a Ferrari...FOR FREE...I still wouldn't keep it cuz the cost of owning it is out of my reach. I would trade it for something I can actually afford to own.

I know it's an extreme example, but the point I'm trying to get across is:
Miata is WAY more FUN for MUCH less MONEY than an E30.
Easier to get one in better condition, and easier and CHEAPER to maintain than an E30.

I also understand that everyone has their favorite. If the E30 is yours and you want one over a Miata at any cost, then by all means, get one. But please, don't try to trade your way up to one. All you are doing is taking risks. That MK4, or any car you might receive in trade for that matter, could be a time bomb with only a few minutes left on the timer.

Drive your Miata, save your money, buy a DECENT E30, sell Miata.
In that order.
Forget about the stupid fukin VDUB.

The e30 touring I sold just crapped out with the blower motor (touring specific) and its quite expensive. Current owner is now debating selling it or parting out / crushing it. Fuck that touring. So many have tried but that specific example is a complete lemon.
