There is no such thing as a "title" in Canada...

you said all 6 speeds shift well, it has a 6 speed, or are you including reverse?

I was including reverse. Stating that every one of the gears worked well.

Purchased today:
-Steering Wheel
-Radio Bezel
-Sparco racing seats
-Shifter and e-brake cover

Now eyeing suspension...today is getting expensive

Ha. Thanks I picked up on that. I've been drooling over wittyworks's turbo setup. But I need suspension regardless.

Anyone have great things to say about certain anti-sway bars?
-Racing Beat
-Eibach
-ST (Because I like the green)
-H&R

I really like my H&R sway bars and coil-overs in my Audi. Should I go as stiff as I can stand? Is there an overboard level for a Miata?

I just installed the racing beat tubular front sway bar. General forum consensus is the racing beat hollow front bar along with either no bar, stock bar, or msm 12 mm bar. There are a couple of recent threads about sway bar setups that are mostly track oriented. Installing the hollow sway bar on my car really helped the front body roll, but now it shows the shortcomings of the stock suspension even more

What about the adjustable end links? Worth it or not?

Is having a rear anti roll bar just too much? Not keeping both tires down?

There is a repair for the back window .
Do some searches on here as well as dogpile and google for miata rear window repair
as long as the material around the window is good it is fixable
Some company in calif sells a partial kit for the repair and some where I saw a repair guide for the window
You may even find a good used back half for a few bucks check the wrecking yards

Looks rattle-canned. Bet it won't last more than a year.

EDIT: Late to the party, my bad.

When you get ready to buy shocks and springs DO check the "Suspension Hierarchy" thread on this forum for good info.

Will do, the Tokico setup is better than stock and will get me by for a while why I focus on other things.

What kind of springs were those lowering springs on your car?

For $750, you definitely got a decent deal. Congrats.
