An Evo enthusiast who’s just bought himself an NB MX-5 Miata 😍 Give me a small country road and some catchy tunes and I’m a happy boy. Oh, and I’m from Finland 👋🇫🇮
16th April 2019
I recently agreed to sell my Daihatsu YRV to a friend and am now looking for my next JDM machine. At the moment I’m really torn between three completely different types of cars; 1) Mitsubishi Lancer Evo III, 2) Honda Integra DC2 Type R, 3) Mazda MX-5 Miata NA.
What I’m really looking for is a sweet riding car to do spirited daily driving in but also possibly some light track work. The Evo III wouldn’t necessarily be my number one choice here. I just happen to love the early Evos and would like to snatch one up before they’re all exported to the States. And I must keep in mind that I’ve already got an Evo IX…
The Integra would possibly be the best and most reasonable option out of these three, I think. Never even thought about Honda before, but these seem like fantastic rides! Don’t really see the MX-5 being more than a track weapon, albeit a great one at that. I’ve never owned a rear wheel drive car so that is something I’m quite intrigued by.
Any other cars I should keep my eye out for? I’m going to take my time with this choice.
