Culpeper? No ****? Charlottesville here, unfortunately I'm Miata-less and stationed in Germany right now, but I'll be back eventually.

This forum is packed full of any and all info you will ever need for boosting anything, let alone a miata so get to reading the sticky's and faqs and you'll be all set.

Pics? Check, Location in profile (under username)? Check, Sig filled out with details of car....get on it, some background info on you/your previous cars...?

Oh and for the record, there's a **** ton of people on here from NOVA and Hampton Roads area that are always willing to help a fellow miata guy out (I think there's one or two in Fredericksburg as well)

As of this weekend I've relocated to Richmond. My uber knowledge can be subtracted from Fredericksburg henceforth.

My miata used to be extremely noisey and bumpy whenever driving, I have coilovers and bilstein shocks, and after installing them ive noticed a huge reduction in both areas. Its still there but not nearly as bad I can take it out to my hour long commute to work and not wish that I hadn't. But yes I would reccomend them I can't say if they have improved my handling so much since I havent taken it to the track. But a huge pain in the neck. Luckily I had to take off my bumper anyway to install the lip.
