Just wanted to say hello. I have owned my 2003 Shinsen for about 2 years now and I am looking into putting a turbo on it by March 2014. I absolutely love my car! I dont have much done to it besides Tein lowering springs and a Spectre CAI. The rest is cosmetic. I'm shooting for less show and more go now.

What's a Shinsen?

And ironic it's tinypic.com cuz that's one tiny pic. I'm not sure that's what the website is for.

A shinsen is the only type of Miata that is immune to *** jokes at traffic lights.

A shinsen has the LSD, 5-speed, navy blue interior and navy blue top with titanium grey exterior. Just a "special edition" with a couple shiny badges to make you feel important.

I am on Tampa Bay Miatas forum a little bit, but not a member of a club other than having a NASA racing membership. National Auto Sport Association - Florida Region Fast fun for everyone

I see. As your post below says, an appearance package and a body kit that looks like the MSM that came out the following year.

Let the *** jokes begin.

Nice looking car though. Post up some regular sized pics.
