I never noticed that AEM has that little photo resister in the gauge. I guess thats how it dims the gauge at night. thats neat.

After i got the wheels, i mounted two in the back to see fitment. they fit...with lots of room for more.


found a slammed miata...my baby looks so big


purchased Nitto NeoGens cheapest tire i could find better than nankangs


oil fitting broke again (2nd time)










fitting tires to get replaced
