    Congrats Bruce! Hard to believe that it is the end of the season already. Jealous of that Quickjack...one day, one day.....

    Mazda MX-5 Miata Newbie

    Agree with @Conrad 16.5 comments. The Miata is a great car to drive and I bet that at least half of the people who teased your family members got behind the wheel and drove it, they would no longer be teasing!

    Absolutely stunning yet so minimal, love it! And another update. I am returning the 3070Ti Founders Edition after work. We were talking last night and he is going to sit tight and await the release of the 40 series and newer CPUs dropping in a few months. His current plan is to make a build...

    Installed a pair of Hella Sharptones in matte black last night to replace the dead Marco Tornado.

    What have you done to your Miata today?

    Finally ordered replacement horns and got them installed last night. I installed Hella Sharptones in matte black. These replaced the Marco Tornado horn that died a few weeks ago along with the bracket that held it in place. I used the stock mounting points on the rad support for the horns...

    Mazda MX-5 Miata Newbie

    Welcome and yes, you can find more info over on m.net as Nik mentioned. Sorry to say though, you aren't going to find much in the $5,000 range given the current market. At this point that price will get you a very high mileage NA/NB (over 100K) that will more than likely need some work...

    @Sig cx-5 I haven't priced prebuilt lately so can't talk about pricing. However back in 2014 when I built him his first rig, I was looking at prebuilt machines. I was told they could be a good value but they could not be upgraded by the end user? I didn't bother researching more into it as I...

    Sure, $1099.99 with free shipping so $1165.99 after PA sales tax. I didn't think that was bad at all. His money, so all I can do is advise. Have to say that I am rather proud though. Earlier he texted me asking my thoughts on returning it. Went on to say that he saw the sales price and got...

    Soooo, this arrived Monday. Our son has still been talking about building a new rig and texted me when he found it on sale. He asked me to order with my card and then he will repay me. It may be overkill but my-oh-my!

    What have you done to your Miata today?

    Would love to join as MATG is def. a bucket list item! However, I can't commit at the moment due to job uncertainties. Would rather ask later if I can pay my portion and crash the party vs. needing to back out at the last minute. Recently I averaged 38.9mpg on my round trip to LRP where I...

    What have you done to your Miata today?

    Understood but those were the instructions as per Thompson Auto where I bought the horn from. IIRC it was the same when I bought the old Stebel Nautilus horn from them for my P5. I do agree though, not a good idea for a lot of things but the horn should be ok given it is used in short bursts...

    What have you done to your Mazda3 today?

    Ouch is right....for his wallet. Pleasantly surprised with the shop, was nervous as I only talked to the guy over the phone a few times.

    What have you done to your Miata today?

    I installed a relay on the NC with the Hella Sharptones. From what I have been reading though the relay is not needed on the ND as the Hellas don't draw enough amps? At least the way I read it but I am by no means an electrician. The Marco doesn't require a relay but does come with a 20a fuse...

    What have you done to your Miata today?

    Yep, realized the ground was on the OEM bracket after taking another look at it. Going to call the dealer tomorrow to get one. Ok and thank you for looking.

    What have you done to your Miata today?

    @bazooka joe You mean the bracket? If so, could you mail it? Hoping to get a new horn installed before the upcoming LRP trip. LMK and I can send you money for shipping and a few extra for your troubles.
