Snapped a few of my father-in-law’s new Polymetal RF a while back. Definitely not as raw as the Mazdaspeed it replaced but so much more balanced an experience. Loooove the lines on the RF.
Om Nom Nom! It looks like that Mustang is going to swallow you hole.
Nice! Poylmetal in these photos looks soo much less blue than I'm used to seeing. Even in person (under car show lights), it looked way more blue than grey. But in these photos it looks a lot greyer.

It's a dynamic color for sure. Between bright sunlight and a heavier touch in Lightroom it looks more gray in the pictures, but it's definitely blue in darker conditions. He went with the wine-colored interior which is an interesting combo with PMG.Nice! Poylmetal in these photos looks soo much less blue than I'm used to seeing.

I agree 100%, and unless I go a completely different direction an ND will probably be the NC's replacement. Just a little wheel/tire fitment and ride height adjustment makes all the difference in the world with these cars.Man, NDs are really growing on me. This stance looks fantastic... what suspension/springs are on there?
Thanks!Man, NDs are really growing on me. This stance looks fantastic... what suspension/springs are on there?
Clutch should be a lot more progressive than that. Judging by the hellaflush wheels you got (should be able to fit 225s without rubbing) it might have some kinda race clutch nonsense. I commuted in stop and go traffic in mine for 10 years.
Update. I replaced it with a new Bosch unit, undid the battery, cleared the codes, and got the same issue a mile from my house. Going to trouble shoot the sensor and see if it's getting all the signals it should be, but I'm annoyed.Finally took the car out for a good ride today. It gave me a little hiccup and a temporary CEL twice. Going to see if it will flash me any codes.
Hoping it’s just from sitting so much. :scared:
17 Heated oxygen sensor (inversion)
So bad O2 sensor.
Yes, there are low profile seat mounts to fix the factory seats to the floor as flow as possible. You lose the slider capability of the stock seat mounts. But that’s generally not an issue for people who need the super low mounts. Contact Jerry Caldwell of JCALD Fabrication.@nyexx, that's a real cherry-congrats!
For some reason, the MSM has less room inside than the NA had. With the roof up, I look like this:
And I'm only 5'11. The seating position is very high as well-if I sit up naturally I can only see 15 feet in front of me. Are their any aftermarket mounts or solutions that let me keep the stock leather seats? Alternatively, are their any cheap racing style seats available?
There are a lot of fancy terms and parts thrown around. What do you make of it? Any good? Worth lookin at? Sounds like a backroad barnstormer but would suck for a casual ride with the wife.CL ad said:For Sale 1999 Mazda Miata. 5 speed, manual windows, non abs, AC unhooked, no soft top/hard top only, stock exhaust.

Depends on what the seller is looking for price-wise. You're correct in your assumption that this would make a great backroads bomber or starter autocross weapon (although the coilovers immediately put you in STR where you'll get creamed by S2000s) and it really depends on your wife's tolerance for suspension harshness. It will be uncomfortable for sure, but I did daily my STR-prepped NA from April-November every year (and a 100-mile round trip commute at that). It did get to me eventually, but it took 4 years. My wife loved driving it as well.OK TCL Miata hivemind, help me out with this one. This has been on my local CL for a while now and I keep clicking on it:
