Default NB Noob Bashing time...

So I've been on here for a while and lurked and just realized I've never made and intro thread so here goes.

I first purchased a white 99 in January of 2012. It was stock except for a brainworks dual exhaust that was on it which had multiple holes rusted through it.


Next to my friends Suzuki swapped turbo geo metro...

First thing I really did was get rid of the brainworks exhaust for a cheap 99 dollar stainless muffler, 15x9 6ul's and raceland coilovers(was needing them fast for the 15x9 fitment)


After a while the top tore and I removed the entire rag top and frame. Needing a top I decided to try and acquire a top and got a trade for a hardtop for the 6ul's. Needing wheels I decided on 15x8 konig flatouts.



In the pics above you may notice the headlights. The factory light output was horrible so I decided bi-xenon projectors were in order. So I purchased a kit from a retrofitting website and sourced some factory HID ballasts from a BMW 5 series from a pick and pull.


Around the same time the front brakes needed attention so I went head with the upgrade.


Being 6'1" the steering wheel always hit my knees so I went with a slightly smaller diameter wheel.


Lastly for a while the bumper having been modified for a dual exhaust was bugging me. I cut from the left side cutout across to the right side factory cutout as well as tinted the tail lights red.

Yes the racelands are much regret. They won't be staying long. The metro is still in progress.

Jesus, a Miata and a Metro. I cannot fathom how much tail you must get.

Dang it's been so long since I've been on here. I'm sorry to announce I have let the community of boosted miatas down...

Latest update is Toyota IRTB setup running ms3 basic.





And yes the racelands are long gone and replaced by flyin Miata track pack.
