Just posting to de-noob. I'm mostly a lurker, but I'll post on things if I see fit.

The car:

Back in Jan'12, I acquired a 5MT 95-M for $2,000. Had 94k, all stock, and pretty beat up. Crack in the bumper, faded paint (amazingly no rust), and spray-painted (I'm not joking) SPRAY-PAINTED black interior. That included the very rare 95M seats which were not only in need of reupholstering but foam transplants. I've since replaced the interior to make it presentable. It did, however, come with a new top (plastic window :|), new tires, and a full tank of gas xD.

Next was going to be fresh paint and bodywork, but I ended up finding a deal here I couldn't pass up (on some turbo stuff of course!). It's an older Begi/FM kit with a 2554 and Enthuza catback (including the cat). Even came with a MSPnP v1.

A few pictures:

3 week ago, I was going to sell the Miata and buy an s2000 but I think boost will make me love this car all over again. (you know...after tires, susp, stiffening, and all of those other lovely expensive things.)
