Funny, the "cold air intake system" is a series of stupid Lego type pieces they sell at Vatozone. Dude can't spell and is obviously an idiot. I doubt he spent anywhere near 10k. If he did, that makes him more of an idiot.

(Gimme a break; I was 17.)

Right? ****, if y'all could've seen my first Miata, many many Miatas ago, I'd have been laughed out of here. 1.6 JRSC, no intercooler or EMS, just a Bipes Box and a FPR. 17" chromies that easily weighed 20 pounds a piece, cheap slammed suspension... I thought it was the shizz though, at least until I drove a proper turbo car with real wheels and real suspension. The difference was startling.

I don't even think he taped it off, as it's unevenly all over the cowl area rubber seal, and it looks like there are some dull areas on the fenders, perhaps from overspray. Hard to tell if that's a 50' or 50 mile job from these poor images. How some people even exist...
