We can't let this die yet....moar!
Lowering isn't going to happen for a long time
Go to Miata.net for all the options...there are many ways to go.
2006 Mazda 3
ask me how i know. I'm picking up a slammed miata, with over 2 grand into suspension components to make it ready to autoX. I drove it twice already, and being so low doesnt in anyway effect the ability to whip it around S turns at 45 mph.

First, "2 grand" into suspension could mean any number of things. You can buy coilovers that are 2 grand a corner. The two grand could have been spent on all sorts of little bits that didn't really do anything.
Second, driving a car around an S turn at 45 doesn't mean it's better than it was before, or better than it could be with that $2k spent somewhere else.
No. This is ridiculous. Many cars look better lowered, but this is just stupid.

Personally, I would NEVER EVER stretch my tires or lower my car past the point of performance. However, I also recognize that a lot of people are just not into the performance aspect; for whatever reason it doesn't interest them. That's fine.
Again, I would never slam a Miata, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the examples in this thread
If you don't like it---that's fine! But don't use the argument "no performance = no likey"---those people aren't going for performance at all. Their argument might be that a Spec Miata has too much wheel gap If you don't like the way it looks, you don't like the way it looks---period. But this forum is filled with way too much stretch-hate. Quit bitching about the things you don't like, focus on the things that excite you If that means posting more pics of Miatas with meaty tires...everyone wins!
