Default Old noob!

Yo.

I just saw I'm registered since November 15th 2006. I guess that's about when I started thinking about getting a roadster. Probably before... anyway!

I bought my Miata on January 23rd... this year so... after almost 2 years of shopping I got my car!

It's a 89' crystal white from florida. See I'm from Canada (eh) so... having a florida car is pretty baller around here... Naah just kidding, It's all about the rust free car cause I'm not really Canadian, I'm more of a Quebecois (tabarnak).

So yeah the car crossed the border in 2004, seen about 1/4 of a winter.

Here's the pics:



This is the Quebec-Levis white miata club. We all bought our cars at about the same time. Awesome






I've seen a great selection of gay icons on the forum... that's pretty cool cause I'm quite gay too.


My red rear flashers


And my co-driver doing the mascot for a JDM miata shop at some Miata meet!


I'll try to post a pic of the engine bay, it's quite clean and the undersiderside of the hood is somehow rice with a bunch of cool stickers featuring Keroppi and Hello Kitty from the show... Hello Kitty

Right now the car is not turbo. I thought about an N/A setup but... the BP4W (engine swap) is all ready to receive a nice turbo sooo I'll get as much informations as I can here and probably turbo it...

So... that's about it. Hope you like my car, I'm trying to get a "unique look" with those orange front flashers and red rear flashers... those wheels we don't see often...

Mr.S, a very nice first post indeed. Welcome to the forum. Too bad you're one of those "separatists" as the ones we have in the Basque part of Spain! at least you have to communicate in English with us!

I suggest you put your location below your Avatar so that any member close to you may offer you some assistance in the future.

Any idea of what kind of turbo you want to install?

p.s. to put your location just go to "User CP".

I still think the NA front lip spoiler is the best "looking" mod you can do to a Miata.

I see you're an admin. I guess you could help me fix them because I bought the car like that and I'm pretty sure it does affect the lightning at night time which I think could be dangerous. I could probably also get a ticket from the police! Hope you can help me.

As for the turbo I'm here to learn so no idea yet, I'd like about 180/170hp... I don't really know how much tuning/money it represents on a BP4W though.

Hey no! I wasn't drifting.

It was a combination of bad weather, bad tires, and some place I didn't know!

It was an understeer problem... I wish I had oversteered though...



And get over it, I'll never admit for you I was drifting that day
