      This is going to be all the snow this car will ever see. Don't even like driving it after the snow when all the rocks are on the road.

      You should only be as aware as you'd be if you had a really nice stereo. At some level, there's NOTHING you can do. However, you can discourage theft or slow the theft process down.

      The best theft...

      That pattern might have been delivered in a unique Porsche edition, but never in a VW. Although VW did use Recaro trophy seats in the top 16V GTI/GLI models.

      Minor threadjack. Here's a friend's 510 wagon with ~450WHP. He did some reinforcement in the engine bay, but nothing major. Typical stuff, 19" wheels, Viper brakes, rear mount radiator, single turbo...

      I don't have a new one, but I've got two NA Miatas and a friend works at Mazda and was involved with the development of the ND. Mazda has an original NA Miata that they would use to benchmark the...

      Being from the PacNW, the worst aspect about these is also their greatest benefit. The LED's are brighter and more durable than their halogen counterparts, but in the dead of winter, it's nice to...

      Great looking car and very clean. I keep forgetting I don't have to always look for an M3 or the iS.



      I've been really happy with the Kenzle I put into my Saab. Simple aesthetics and Bluetooth...

      Not denying those are neat little tools, but after having cars without studs for almost 20yrs, it really isn't a big deal to line up with bolt holes fromthe wheel with the hub and then lift it up...

      The phrase you're looking for is either "Wire tuck" or "accessory delete". When you're putting an engine into an engine bay that it doesn't belong, you get to make lots of decisions on which...

      It's a stretch to say his tire de-beaded and caused the accident. You must not see many cars after an accident. Almost any car that slides sideways will drop the bead.

      Without hearing your reasons for why they "have to" go on the roof, obviously, if you put them in the car, you could put other things on top that will fit in a box. I think you'll be hard pressed to...

      I can agree that many baseless laws are the result of "saving the children", but I'm not sure this is one of those cases.

      Do you have young children that walk to school or have you walked with...

      On no planet is a 171K KM NB Miata worth more than $3K. Also, an NB Miata is largely the same as a 1989 Miata, while the NC is 15yrs newer technology so the comparison between the two is confusing.

      If you're installing the frame and convertible top as a unit, it takes about 45mins. All NA / NB tops are interchangeable, however, you do need to have the correct latch pins and latch receivers.

      You should know Michael already if you've got Datsuns that far back in your roots. The two of you have enough in common; lurid attention to detail with insane OEM+ builds, you both have the same...

      Yes, definitely sounds like you're out of options. Not sure why you're "on the phone with BMW" every day, you might as well get "on the phone with Obama every day" to talk about international trade....
