Hey guys i just bought a 93 NA for 1300 clean title. The car has pw/ pm/ ps and what appears to be cruise control, and an alarm system. here are few things that i noticed now that i didnt when i got the car but doesn't seem to be a big deal to me.

i will list all the cons i can think of first:
-175,xxx miles
-the car idles low and sometimes stalls when i start it up
-i suspect there was an accident since the hood is extremely flush and makes its slightly more difficult to get open, also a friend pointed out what looks like to be a half-assed reupholster job on the dash where the passenger air bag would've been
-Passenger and driver doors are difficult to get open with key from the outside
-the passenger window rolls down fine but sometimes doesn't go up, I think who ever did the wiring on the car may have screwed up cause my radio shuts off sometimes when the volume is too high
-rear window near impossible to see out of

Here are all the things i like about the car :mrgreen::
-its slammed on coilovers (not sure of the brand but i found two adjusting wrenches that say skunk2 on them)
-it has a front lip on it
-came with pretty decent sound set up with two extra speakers behind the seats and nice head unit
-clean interior and trunk

all things considers i and my friend who is a pretty knowledgeable in cars and what not said that i got a pretty good deal. Other than that rough idle and stalling everything else doesnt really bother me all that much.

it shouldnt have had a passenger airbag. Passenger airbags were in 94-up models

It is a little strange but it could be as simple as the tan leather seats wore out or they didn't like the leather. And then maybe a black replacement top was cheaper at the time.

It's not an upholstery problem, The 1.6 tan crash pads(foam area on dash) are just lighter than the rest of the dash.

Great deal on the car, and welcome!
Now lose those rear speakers--they gotta go.
yeah i'm not to fond of speakers being out in the open like that my last miata was broken into and **** got jacked so i'm probably gonna move those soon, plus i can drop my top all the way because of it :cry2:

Looks like a fine deal to me. Congrats on the new car.
Thanks man i thought it was

Should it even have Tan interior...??
I think it was supposed to because the door panels are also tan
