Default Not a miata owner, I'm here to buy stuff

I'm Mike from Canada, seen the for sale section and there are a lot of deals on items that arent miata specific.I'm rocking a 2000 corolla and looking to add some boost.

Hehe, he said corolla

No elitism, plenty of non miata build threads here. Something like 3/4 of the mods don't even own miatas, practically subieturbo.net

Nobody likes the mooch, so don't mooch.

Mooching to me would be begging for free stuff or even low balling people.I'm not here to low ball, people seem to have their items priced fairly here.

But if you're not willing to be a part of the community, why would we want you here? Why not start a build thread and introduced yourself proper? We're fine with non Miata owners here, just not people who want to treat the place like it's just a place to shop.

yep, but a community nonetheless.

we don't allow outsiders to pee and poo all over our forum, we got our own people for watersports and S&M

Looking at it from your guys view I understand, some dude just here to leach of the community and not contribute anything.Thinking about it I wouldnt want anyone to impose on a forum I love just to score deals on parts.I can get by without this forum so I'll leave.

Happy boosting!

Mike- you don't need to leave. You can read and learn a lot about turbo charging your car here. You just introduced yourself as here to buy, and that's it.

I'm sure the sellers could care less- they just want to sell stuff so they can buy more

Agreed, plus if he does anything Megasquirt then this is honestly one of the best forums for that. The stickies here are so informative that you'd have to be narcoleptic to not learn something.

If he buys **** at asking price I guess I don't see an issue. As long as he doesn't spam the **** out of threads to up his post count.

I don't want to see any TRD build threads though...
