I wanna go for a ride in it.
I've often thought that 15s would really help an MSM come alive.

These wheels + FM suspension = the car feels like I've always wanted a miata to feel around town. For serious. Super comfy and still agile enough to not feel floaty. Love it so far

So glad to rid it of the boat anchor Racing Harts

Should have gone with a set of 13s and giant tires with a bulgy sidewall.

This is not true. I can think of several things I need less than another car, like gonorrhea.

In for GT40miata. Much better than Z3miata.

No no that'd be fine, it's just the gonorrhea I'd like to pass on.

COME ON.

So I did a little experiment this weekend:

swapped several ECU's from the different MSM's that my brother had and tried them out to see if one of them won't have the stupid power issue as I've heard some people mention.

I think the one I installed now does it less, which is cool, but still does the annoying "hold the power back- then release ALLOFIT"....

oh well

I have an '05 sitting around here somewhere. Eventually it'll go in the classifieds for $60 and never sell.

the top gap is exactly like any 01+ out there. not sure what you're getting at.
the pass side behind headlight is cause the tiny little plastic rail is cracked, I've a replacement but too lazy to take the 5 minutes and fix it lol

Think he means the pic where it shows front passenger panel. The seam where the front bumper & pass fender meet up on the headlight.

Looks like its sticking out but I'm not sure.
