Default Any cool EUDM miata parts?

I'm currently in the UK on a study abroad program. Wondering if there are any EUDM specific parts that I should look into getting while I am here. Stuff that I can fit into a suitcase. I'm already bringing some parts back for my GC impreza, but wondering about miata parts as well. Any cool euro only parts you guys like?

Bring me back a complete PI system for a 1974 Triumph TR6

Actually, we are quite partial to the later NB intake manifolds. Keyword: "squaretop" The factory NB 4-2-1 exhaust manifold that goes with that intake is also probably one of the best OEM manifolds Mazda put on a Miata, but its going to be a pain to mount without the connecting midpipe section. Pretty sure a midpipe won't fit in your suitcase

Other than that, there really are not a whole lot of other differences. The center console airbag switch panel in the euro cars was replaced with either a coin tray or a switch panel IIRC. Some people really like them but that's not really this crowd. That's all I can come up with pre-coffee on a Sunday morning.

I've looked into getting a square top manifold, I know they are pretty desirable. I've seen those 4-2-1 exhaust manifolds, but I didn't realize there was a significant performance difference between those and the 4-1 manifolds.

I was also thinking about the wooden Nardi steering wheels, but haven't been able to find one for a decent price.

Oo! Bring me back a 3.63 torsen diff for a 1.8 with correct speedometer sender. I've heard people say that the UK is lousy with them. Actually, I'd just be happy with the ring and pinion, and maybe the speedo sender.

That might be a little bit heavy for my checked bag. And I think I would get some looks carrying a pumpkin through airport security haha.

A ring and pinion will fit in a flatrate box if packed properly.

Rofl.

Also, there is a power window override switch in the EU. I think it disables the window switches, but you could adapt it to your needs and it fits in one of the stock blanks. I'd use it to power the power windows with the ignition off. If you can find the Defrost/Fog Light switches, those are super rare for NA's. I think someone got a GB going on M.net and they were $80+ each.

I know JDM had a lot of appearance packages, plus the M2 cars. EUDM might have the stainless teardrop speaker plates that came on the US 93 LE. Do not get them without the plastic backing, or they're basically useless.

You could probably get a EU finish panel, but it won't fit a US plate, and IIRC, the only way to get a USA plate in a EU size is to live on base in a EU country.

You could also snag some of the wink-**** lights from the front fenders. Japan and Europe both got these, and we didn't.

Concealer, would these work? I want to make sure you have enough light to find it.
