    They genearlly arnt super fast, but its the connection you get driving it.

    A S15 might be fast, but that can get a bit old......

    A MX5 is about the driving experience, and the best thing is, you get to enjoy it at speeds which are often around the posted speed limits.

    There is NOTHING better than driving a well balanced sports car on a beautiful day with the roof down......

    That all being said, speed and HP are awesome, but when your talking about a daily driver, i'll take roof down over HP anyday.
    Definitely agree mate, it's just about enjoying the interaction you get when driving this thing. There will be a time when I'll want power, but that's when the RX-7 comes in. For now, I'm a happy camper =)

    Who cares what people think and their approval! Just do it!

    Yeah I drove a few MX-5s before picking this up and they can sound crap, this one doesn't sound too bad with the MX-5 Plus exhaust system. When cruising you can't hear anything, but once you step on the throttle, it lets out a nice note.

    Had all four guards rolled yesterday, so the inner lip is now flat. Work was done by FineFitment and I can definitely recommend them to anyone that needs some extra clearance for wheels.

    Car jacked up ready for some guard work =)

    Also took a quick photo of the MX-5 Plus exhaust, love the lobster tail TIG welding!



    Guard roller mounted up ready for action.



    Before and after shots of guard inner lip.

    MY BRAND NEW WHEELS!!!!! Axis OG-San 15x8 +25
    I ordered Axis OG-San wheels from JDMYard, they were by far the cheapest I could find. Email response was fast and shipped out the next day. Definitely recommend them =) . The Axis OG-San wheels are replicas of the SSR Formula Mesh, which are the replicas of some BBS wheels. I ordered them in 15x8 +25 gold finish.



    For tyres, I've again chosen to go for maximum rubber instead (like my S15) of the stretched look. But I also wanted to avoid getting semi-slicks or R-Compound tyres for a car that I will most likely drive on a daily basis. So I decided on the Hankook R-S3 in 225/45 R15. These were hard to source in Australia and they sell for $335AUD, compared to $110AUD from TireRack in the US. After shipping and other fees, the tyres cost me just under $200AUD each landed at my door. Total saving of $540!!

    They seem OK, only other coilover I can compare to is the Bilsteins in my mates MX-5. But the YSR are still great through various corners, much nicer for a daily too.
