@jbade 

There are no marks or damage. The interior shows almost no wear aside from a rub on the driver's side seat bolster. Everything is stock with no mods. Good top that's probably the original. Just installed a battery and front pads. Passed inspection in June with nothing required. Just over 74000 miles.

@jbade FYI, the NC (2006 thru 2015) uses a timing chain vs a timing belt.

Most welcome @jbade, always happy to help an aspiring or existing Miata owner.  🙂

Another tidbit, if you were not aware already, is that the coolant system for the NC is pressurized.  So the 'overflow' reservoir is actually a key component to the system and should it fail, it could result in extensive engine damage.  The typical fail spot is the filler neck where the cap attaches.  You can take a light and flash it from the backside while looking in to see if there are any hairline cracks.  Most owners will simply replace with another OEM plastic tank for ~$60ish while others opt for the Moroso aluminum tank which sells for $265.  Yes, more expensive but IMO better piece of mind knowing the new plastic tank will not fail down the road.

From what I've been able to find, you can't always see when that tank is about to fail, and the tank can last anywhere from 32,000 miles to forever; so the plastic one is always a game of Russian Roulette, and not the fun one hosted by Mark L. Walberg.

I replaced the tank on mine preemptively with a new plastic tank. I figured the first one lasted up to 2019, so ... Why not?

@triviawayne Correct, I have seen the same.  There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to how they fail.  I forget the exact mileage but I upgraded the original OEM tank on my NC to the Moroso around ~135K miles.  I was able to see the stress marks on the filler neck.  I opted to spend more not only for the once and done aspect but it cleans up the engine bay.  Nice Wahlberg reference. 😉 

@southsidej  Way to be proactive and good for a potential buyer to know.

Because the next one might only last a few years.  To me, it was like buying an insurance policy (legalized gambling).  I was going to wait until 100,000 miles for when the fluids get replaced, but then I found many cases where the tank didn't last that long and I also learned very little fluid is lost when switching to the new tank, so I did it while the Moroso was on sale (which it still is in the link to Goodwin upthread).
