Default Hey

Hi everyone Im jesse. I have been reading in the forums for awhile and decided it was time to say hey to everyone out there in the miata world. I just got my hands on a 92 m package with some light mods and can't wait to start tearing it apart and making it better.

Welcome.

I hate to go all miata.net on you...but there was no '92 M-Edition. I believe both the Ms and Rs started in '94...although my '92 has had an R-package front lip on it for over a decade.

What are your goals?

Default no 92 m package?

Thanks for the info. I just figured since it was merlot mica with tan leather interior and the factory bbs wheels it must have been. It also has all the wood options inside as well. Oh well learn something new everyday, someone must have switched it all out over the years. beAs for goals I just want a good track with light track capabilities. Then maybe in a year or so boost.

It sounds like your '92 miata is really a '95 miata.

The easy way to tell would be to buy a 1.6 turbo kit and try to install it.

post VIN from VIN plate on the dash, not VIN from the title.

The difference is:

VIN on the title = the car you bought.

VIN on the dash is the car that you have in your posession.

Hopefully, they're the same.

My '92 is a black and tan that came with BBS wheels. The wheels are 14" though, and the interior, although tan leather, had no wood trim aside from the Nardi shift **** and e-brake handle. If this sounds like yours then maybe it was painted.

If the paint looks original, has the funky M logos on the side, and has 15" BBS wheels then I'd check to make sure the VIN matches the title. You got a WAY better car for the price (1.8L motor, 1.8L rear end (stronger), bigger brakes). Everything else is cosmetic.

The vin #'s match up. Sooo Someone did some work to this thing in the past. I have already sold most of the woodgrain, and I am looking for some quality black seat covers? Found a few websites but they are pricey.
