Have you done some extra special customization? Got some great car care products? Solved a problem – wait a minute, the Miata doesn’t have problems. Most anything goes here as long as it is Miata related (and civil, of course). If we get enough replies/posts on a single topic, we may start a new category, so ask your questions or share your knowledge.
I live in Lexington and am in the market for a ’01-03 LS 5SPD manual Miata. It may go back to the days I worked as an assistant service manager at an auto dealer but before I take the leap into buying any car I’m not familiar with I like to educate myself as much as possible about what to look for beyond the obvious.
I’m contacting you today to try to get connected with someone who is a font of knowledge about Miatas of the years I’m interested in purchasing so I can bombard them with questions and also get advice and information beyond even my concerns.
I can be reached at (859) 361-3943 or, reply to this message.
Hi, I live over by morehead ky. I need a zipper put in my miata convertible top. The top is like new, except the zipper needs to be replaced.
Do you, or any of your members have the name of a shop you've dealt with, who you think would do an honest good job for me? I need help.
Please leave a comment on this message if you have any suggestions.
Thanks for your suggestions, Carol Tenge, Hillsboro, Ky.
My name is Matthew Mattingly. I recently bought a 1999 Miata to commute back and forth from work. I really enjoy the car but I had a few questions about it that I thought yall could help me with.
The factory soft top is getting in bad shape with some cracking around the edges and a few holes starting to come up in it. Where is the best place to either get it worked on or replaced?
I was also curious about the transmission and rear end of the car. It seems to wind up a little tighter than I like and I was wondering if a different rear end is available as well as possibly a 6-speed transmission. Any information would be helpful.
Please reply to this message if you have any information.

I recently purchased a 1990 Miata and have a question:
Ride quality? I am wondering how this car should really ride, it is pretty rough riding and I am wondering if I have a suspension problem, or if this normal.
If this is the norm, are there ways to upgrade this to make a little smoother ride.
