No this is definitely not the miata that adi and myself mentioned. The one i mentioned is a soft top and defenitely not as well maintained as the one in your photograph. And it has a huge ferrari logo on the bonnet.

Are you sure its a miata and not an MG, because I guess it looked more like an MG to me. Will check it out on thursday. Somehow my feeling is that it is an MG

Manish, This is not the one I am talking about. It has a huge ferrari sticker on the hood. And the headlights are the one which pops up (hidden ones). I am not sure what its called

Are you talking about the above pic posted by Manish? Then its correct. We are talking about a different car. Rotorhead or I will try to click the pic.

Manish - I am sure who have not missed it. It is always parked on the roadside outside a permium leather shop near KR Road. I am seeing it for more than a couple of years.

It is a Golf 3. The turbo badge is as authentic as the tTexas plate. Unless the owner put a turbo in it, it never came with a turbo except for the diesel
