I wish. Maybe one day someone will come out with a replacement turnsignal assembly that has a projector in it, kind of like for the fd rx7

Not as much room in the miata though.

My wish has always being to get a Racing Beat Type II nose for cheap! I totally agree with the OP's statement about the NA's nose.

Is that the "175" hp fuji miata? I actually like that.
I wonder how D2S (or whatever else the cool kids are running these days) HID projectors could be added to the picture.

Also consider that it's all urethane that way, so no worrying about destroying a fiberglass front nose on parking-blocks and road cones (in the case of autox)

Both those look great. If I had an NA, i would... not waste the money doing that. But it would be nice because it does look great.

That would be the only reason I'd do it, I wouldn't want to invest the time and effort. I think it looks good and I'd love to use those fog light holes to cool my brakes.

you can probably pick up a black unprimered one for under $150.
