      Good point, specifically, a coupe would have to be tested so that it passes this: http://www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/CrashWorthy/RoofCrResist/FMVSS216Notice.html

      From a manufacturing standpoint, I am not sure what tooling changes would have to be made to the assembly line that the 124 and Miata are manufactured on in order to facilitate a coupe. It seems like...

      There is a Mopar exhaust that will give you the sound you seek:

      I test drove an A500 for the explicit purpose of evaluating the potential lag of the 124. The A500 absolutely has lag and I can find review after review that notes this. I would expect the 124 to...

      I respectfully disagree. I think both are fantastic looking, each in their own way. The ND is a natural progression of Miata design and has a semi-exotic look to it. I have had more than a number of...

      I am sure top up visibility is not as good with nearly every convertible, but the backlight on the Miata is pretty small, especially when you have unlimited visibility with the top down. The small...

      My big issue with the RF is that it will seemingly have the same truncated rear field of view that the regular Miata has when the top is up. Whenever I drive my car with the top up it is jarring how...

      How about factory aftermarket?

      Of course the option was priced like an aftermarket BBS rim, but I didn't care.

      Get the inspection done and see how much they are going to charge you for the paint damage. Then take it to a body shop and see how much they will charge you to fix it. If they can do it for less...

      Sorry all, but when you are rocking a machine that puts out an awesome 155 horsepower, you can't help but exceed the speed limit! :sly:
    12. Valentine One Junk K-Fighter - Is it effective?

      I am thinking about upgrading my V1 to include their Junk K-Fighter, since I am really tired of it going off from all the blind-spot and anti-collision sensors from other cars. I was curious if...

      The rear spoiler is part of the Club and then the extended front and rear lower spoilers and the side skirts are part of the Brembo/BBS package.

      As for the power outlet, I have a quick charge...

      Other than window tint, it is still stock. However, I do plan to switch tires as soon as these wear out as I feel their tread compound is a bit too hard and I am not thrilled with the wet weather...

      They lease, but not very well. The 36 month 12K mile/year residual is 55% and the rate is .00234, which is stupid high. At the time (and I believe still currently) Mazda had an incentive where they...

      It doesn't bother me enough to go through the time and expense of doing that, especially since this is a lease. If I were keeping it long-term, that might be something I would look into.
