So I found this miata on ebay, and I thought well it looks pretty interesting. Then I looked at the wheels and tails. WTF?!

Yeah you know for 8k I'd buy it... would definitely have to change the damn wheels though. I guess he likes to have his miata roll on dubs.

The "rock chips" look more like whoever painted that kit did not prep it properly and simply sprayed the ****.

You people focus on weird ****. The ******* hood scoop is hideous.

Surely there is a better way to do that hood scoop than this.
