Just google it there's a bunch. I don't know where the best deal is if that's what you're asking.

Are you looking for a real carbon one or just a fiberglass with carbon layer on top? Will make a HUGE difference in price. Trust me... I know.

No the S2000 HT does not fit the miata


S2000 HT's are more expensive


For not doing a little more research...

If you look up axis power racing they have carbon hard tops with honeycomb in between each layer. It is also dry carbon vs. the cheesed out wet stuff or wet over fiberglass.

no, no one has them on their car, because they don't fit. period.

i'm pretty sure the window on the s2k is wider than the miata, it doesn't have the same angle as our top. they are in no way compatible

you sir, fail

Not to mention the way the two tops attach are completely different.

They are for sale, but most do not have windows or seals. I bought one in August and STILL have not received it..so your also looking at a long wait. That being said, I'd expect to pay over 2k for one w/ full window and seals.
