I disagree. I think it looks pretty cool. Youthful and maybe a bit immature but not bad IMO.

Thank you for the compliments. As for the flares, they will be threaded in the body and the hardware will be anodized black to keep it clean with the body. No chrome hardware.

He is they guy. He's very helpful with this purchase and very patient. I hope he can work with me.

The seller sold the wheels to his roomate. I was giving him a 600 dollar deposit and in two weeks the rest of his payment for the following pay period. After he agreed to it he sold me out . It's hard to find people whose word actually means something nowadays

Eh, if his roommate was paying the amount in full at that moment it's hard to blame him. Sucks, but he's got to live with the guy.

So my Mishmoto electric fan took a cap on me and smoked up. The ac fan not the engine fan. I'm not replacing them with mishimotos lifetime warranty. If they fail on 4 years time I'm not back. Time to upgrade both fans.

Just installed the spal fans. This is what they sound like


Spal Fans 99 Miata:


I had to drill new holes for the spal fans to fit on the mishimoto fan shroud. They are a bit smaller.

They sound pretty loud. I can't wait to see my temp gauge to see how much of a difference the two are.
I've used also water wetter in past vehicles and have seen a difference in temps. Has anyone else used the additive?
