Default Some new pictures I took recently

Got the bumper and new wheels on and took some pictures, thought I'd share them with you guys/gals.

cool, if you'd told me about a white car with a red hardtop id be all "ugghgh". but it actually looks quite good. i think most of that is cause of da wheelz.

Buy some of the hooby paint for the tails and color the orange red, then it will really be all tied together. looks as badass as it is

damn, thats pretty slick, and original. I come from the vw scene, which has a sense of style 2nd to none, and this car demands respect...if that's worth anything.

Probably the top 5 best looking Miata I've seen.

Three observations.
1. It doesn't look like the hood fits quite right.
2. Don't like the hood pins.
3. Ditch the stock antenna and get a shorty.

The hood "doesn't fit right" i'm pretty sure because he has the spacer kit that raises the rear of the hood in order to create a cowl effect to help with cooling. As for the antennae i too hate my own long stock one and about about ready to just cut that bad boy off with a mean pair of dikes.


The red top with those wheels is **** man. Those are the 15X8 0off Sportmaxes aren't they?
I noticed on roadster drift you have video of a drift session as your avatar, do you have the full video up on youtube or anything?

i saw some of these over at Another Forum and was impressed. looks fantastic. are those 002s? they look bigger like 16's, but it could be how low (deliciously low) it is.

red-up those pillars and maybe instead of brainy's idea swap in some 01+ tails and you're gewd to go.

All that stuff should look really cobbled together and ugly....

BUT DAMN...I love the way it looks.

Great job.

Just a few touches here and there and it'd be perfect.

PS, I really want to run an exhaust like that...pics?

maybe red sideview mirrors like the new minicooper.. but that might be overkill

I love those wheels and want me some too! what are they?

I think the red hardtop works well with the coloured centres of the wheels too.
