I just sold the 528i Wagen. It is a bitter-sweet feeling. I will miss it, but it was time for it to go. It was just becoming too much work.
Don’t get me wrong, I like working on cars and motorcycles, but not all the time. It was an easy car work on, generally, but it was just time to let it go.
The passing of the wagen is greatly offset by the fact that I just bought a 2006 Mazda MX-5 Miata convertible, so there will still be posts about cars, but hopefully not as many about repairing cars.
I’m looking forward to putting a lot of miles on the Miata. It is of course an entirely different beast than the wagen. Much smaller, snappier, quicker steering… But not as refined.
I’m okay with that.
The interior is very pretty, and in great shape. The whole car is in great shape considering it has 99,000 miles on it. But you know, Japanese cars run a long time these days, Miatas included.
The first upgrade will be a new head-unit for the stereo, I’m sure there will be a post about it.
