If you figure it out please share the install and pics. I've been interested in this a while back but couldn't find compact bags that fit within the specs of the stock spring and shocks.

*edit*

after research here's a link to a kit

If you are planning on actually using the miata for what it was designed (driving) dont do bags. They are heavy and will never be as good as coilovers or springs/shocks. Miata is not a vw.

Of course if you want your miata to be an extension of your sense of style then pop that kit on and run with it. Pics please. But if you are worried you won't be able to run flat out on a AutoX course with air bags then go traditional. More than anything please do what you want and post pics.

Airbagit has terrible products and I would use my own kit. As much as you guys think you will loose handling, if you use the correct things and know what you are doing you won't loose handling or comfort.

The newb does not speak for all of us.

Airbag suspension has been shown in clinical trials to increase the risk of heart disease, blood clots, and stroke. Women who are pregnant or nursing, or who may become pregnant, should not use airbag suspension.

Maybe compared to stock. But to most here, stock is not well handling.

Stock miata > most (would say all but there's got to be a couple exceptions) VW's on bags & any miata on bags,

Hey gaffot,
Go to the forums that "let people enjoy their cars" because this is a forum about turbocharging and not turning the car into a heap of ****, Holmes. You don't seem to understand punctuation or capitalization.
