You have to find the pump with e85 in it. Most stations only have one e85 pump(2 if you count the other side). Whatever the button says, the pump will dispense it.

Miata. Roughly equal on the track for roughly half the price. 15 inch tires are dirt cheap too.

Red is sexy time.
Black is simple but alcantara(?) if you want that.
Black/red is ok if you want to match the silver interior trim with silver belt guides.
Yellow is no.

Red is the easy choice.

I just call them directly and ask them if they have it in stock. If they have it they will ship it asap. If they don't, they will call the distributor to ask, and possibly drop ship directly.

Nope. They fit. They will poke out a little but they will fit. They will stick out about 35mm from the stock wheels on the outside measurement.

Get lower control arms for the rear and camber plates and camber bolts up front. You can test fit with some blocks of wood. Every tire fits slightly different and stretches different.

Depreciation is highest in the first few years. Only reason to buy new is if you really want the new car warranty, but this car is reliable so it is moot. I wish I bought used.
