they sent me a double order on a $150 order a year and a half ago, I got the same package twice lol Order included a cupholder that is still sitting next to my computer, an ignition switch (both in use now), shifter boots, and ngk plug wires It was awesome!

btw, in case yall were wondering, I was a miata newb at the time and just went to miata.net and thats why the typical m.net purchase, useful crap though.

That would probably be followed with a ban too, I still use M.net to get int contact with some peopel. :( I'm still ******* pissed though because I could've driven up there and gotten it or had my pa-in-law get it for me.

I don't see why you would get banned.I see people complaining about vendors all the time.I think the trick to it is not bash the vendor,but instead just post your negative experience with them.

Offer them a few extra bucks to have it shipped straight to you.

I think they quoted me about $1200 for a used hardtop, plus several hundred in shipping. Isn't that about the same or more than a new one?

Planet Miata is overpriced on their **** period. I guarantee they're going to take that ******* diff and try to sell it at twice the price or more than they got it for. I should've just kept upbidding so they paid more.

**** them for trying to make a profit! Imagine a business buying product and then marking it up and selling it. What the hell?!? You'd think this is a free market or something.

I'm pretty sure if you could get one they are about $4K from a dealer. And you have to paint it.

I was just pissed because I could've had that goddamn thing today. They're a "Salvage Yard", so I guess eBay is the new broken car.

Hardtop was a $2000 dealer option. But no longer in production.
It was a $1500 factory option if ordered with the car.

I've had only 1 transaction with Planet Miata, and it went well. Got a complete 1.8 brake kit (new rotors, Hawk HPS pads, and caliper brackets) for $190 shipped.

Pretty sure that the hardtops were around $2300 unpainted when they were available at all.

I'm gonna hang onto mine.
