NSX Search

I have just recently gotten into the financial position to afford an NSX. I have $45,000.00 cash to work with. What I do not know is, will that be enough to get a quality low miles NSX? I would really appreciate any advice you guys could give on this subject, thanks.

Do we have the power to shape our lives, or are we predestined to be who we are? If our Fate is but one amongst many, then whose life, if anyone's, is real?
If our lives are indeed the sum-total of the choices we've made, then we cannot change who we are. But with every new choice we're given, we can change who we're going to be.

Yes... although it depends on what you're looking for (IOW what you mean by "quality" and "low miles").

You can get a well-kept '91-93 with 25-50K miles for mid thirties. If you want lower miles than that, pricing can extend upwards to around $40K.

If you want an NSX-T (removable roof) then you can get a nice '95 with the same miles for right around your $45K limit.

Make sure you can afford any repairs or maintenance that you might need, and you may want to set aside a bit of your savings for them. '91-92 cars should have the timing belt and water pump replaced if they haven't been done already (figure $1200 p/l). Clutches can last anywhere from 30K to 90K miles and can go at any time ($2000). A/C repairs, while not THAT common, can be even more expensive.

Check out pricing in the article from the June 2001 Road & Track, which is available in the NSX FAQ.
