I got in touch with the guy after seeing a craigslist ad, he only had three pictures at first, claims to have 57,000 miles and asking price was $3,700.

He sent me more pictures and under the hood it looks terrible, drivers seat is trashed, he told me a dog had chewed on the front fender, must have been a Great Dane, told me he hadn't changed the oil since he bought it from his sister two years ago, then he told me that the instrument cluster had been replaced with one showing 43,000 miles because the original one had scratches on the clear plastic in front of the gauges.

He added the pictures to the craigslist ad and has dropped the price to $2,500. Might be a good deal but buyer beware.

I sent an email to this guy and have not received anything back. Do you know where the car is?

He lived in a neighborhood off Airline Hwy and a mile or two east of I-12 if the map on craigslist is correct. He seemed to be a nice guy but clueless about cars, I'm not sure he knows what the M package is.
He did add the pictures that he sent to me to his ad, was asking $3,700 when I responded, now he's at $2,500.

I posted the pictures on Miata.net and someone commented that the car had been for sale off and on for two years.
