I like the 01-05 front because the bumper isn't all rounded and goofy like all the other miata's, but more straight and stern.

^^ I agree. It adds character but don't care much for the stripes. IMO it would look better without the stripes.

needs small side skirts to go with the lip. Other than that its pretty damn nice sir!
It reminds me of a local car here that is also Sunlight silver with black racing stripes.

I actually like it. I really thought it was going to look slightly off, but I was wrong. I dig it, probably the only 99/00 front end i've ever liked.

Stripes are for MEN Wear them with pride.

Now that is a major transformation! Looks great man, congrats and good job. The headlights look killer, as does the paint and stripes with the 6UL's and that GV lip. Overall it's pure sex.
