2018 Signature

I currently own a '17 Miata GT and am contemplating trading for a leftover 2018 Signature Mazda6. They will sell me the car for $30,700 plus tax/fees. MSRP:$35,845....so a $5145 discount. I've been holding out for $30,000 but the dealer isn't budging. They're giving me $22k for the Miata.
They called with lease numbers today....$425/mo. Incl. tax with $1k down, 12k/36mo. and a they'll give me a check for the Miata.

Do these numbers sound good?

Keep the ND, they're beautiful!

Sounds like the dealer knows they can sell this thing. Also looks like they're giving you a couple K under what the Miata is really worth. Any other dealers around that you could bug and try to get them competing against one another? Might be able to get the price down another thousand, but I wouldn't expect much lower.

I've been dealing with 3 dealers and this one is offering the best deal so far. Yes, the ND is beautiful but my wife would like a year round driver. We live in Ohio and I winter store it. We have a pristine '07 Honda Element and a new Ridgeline so it's not a big deal if we don't drive the Miata in the winter.

How about trading your other vehicle instead of the Miata?

We have 4 Boxers that we take to dog parks, etc. so the Element is an amazing vehicle for that. My Ridgeline is less than a year old and is needed to tow our 18' camper. It's an RTL-E so it's loaded to the hilt and amazingly comfortable. I traded an '08 Miata GT PRHT for the '17 so we've been in sports cars for a long time, starting with a '70 Mach 1 when I was 18. Always had a sports car in the garage. Corvette, Supra, 300Z, (4) S2000s.
Maybe it's time to slow down a little and just settle into a sports sedan. I've owned quite a few of those too and the latest Mazda6 is on par or exceeds all but perhaps the Lexus GS350 we owned. My wife saw the leftover '18 in Snowflake Pearl with the parchment interior and was smitten. I kinda was too.
I think I'll sit for a few days and see if the dealer comes back with another offer.....

Having recently driven 6MT '19 Mazda Miata's - in both RF and softop flavours - I don't know how you could part with such a car. Really, truly wonderful. For me (and I grant you I am NOT the norm, here) I would even put a trunk-mounted luggage rack on it (carrying waterproof Pelican case or cases as necessary) and/or a 1-1/4" receiver tube hitch on it (for a 'real small trailer if necessary)... to maximize the utility for the Miata. I think it could be a daily driver even with the right gnarly top-flight snow tires and a modicum of ballast in the trunk.

But that's me.

You got a good looking collection over there...

You might want to take a whole body picture. You can use my newbie thread, I don't mind.

I apologize, I'm off topic.

Just attempting to show that there are different varieties of bolt-on rack... and if a person would care to scour the internet he/she'd find all manner of non-permanent racks or ruck-sacks, pads, straps out there for adding utility to a small sportscar. You should see what they do for motorcycles in europe and no doubt in SE Asia. Sorry; off-topic 😐 .

We really don't need the Miata to be practical, although my wife thinks so. The Element and Ridgeline are the definition of practicality as much as the ND is the definition of driving fun.
Thanks for the tip on the luggage rack but I'm such a purist I even hate the shark fin antenna on the trunk...lol
