Where are you and your Miata? by Chris D'Agnolo
Well, Pat (PWS) has mentioned a couple of times that only a small handful of folks hang out on this group these days. While I'm not usually inclined to try to prove him wrong, on this particular issue, I would love to. Would everyone who see's this message, please reply with CITY, STATE (and...

Downshifting by CR
Downshifting: yes or no? Double-clutching: necessary or not? Comments and suggestions welcome... Since there are fewer 5/6-speed manual transmission autos sold in the U.S. these days, perhaps it is a lost skill?

Just for Fun by Chris D'Agnolo[_2_]
Just to stir the pot a little, I'd love to hear how many Miatas folks have owned and approximately how many miles they have put on those Miatas. To start it off I can say that I've owned 2. - 1992 SE Black and Tan (put ~75k on it over ~5 yrs) and currently - 1999 Base model Black / Black / Black...

What am I missing? by Randy Maheux
In 5 weeks I will be moving from San Diego to the Daytona Beach area. My problem is getting my Miata back east. I could drive it in 4 - 12 hour days or pay Mayflower to haul it with my furniture. Nine years ago I was a zombie after driving a Ford Ranger from Tampa to San Diego in 4 days. ...

PBS reviews Pontiac Solstice by XS11E
I just watched "Motorweek" on PBS as they reviewed the Pontiac Solstice. They continually compared it to the MX-5 and.... well, here, read it yourselves: http://www.mpt.org/motorweek/reviews/rt2502a.shtml

Anyone having any problems with PRHT model? by Herm
I thank everyone who posted on my previous question - Z-4 or MX-5 PRHT...which should I get? I'm 95% sure it's going to be the MX-5. Now I'm wondering - has anyone had any problems with the top? or anything else? I have monitored this group for quite some time and have seen very few problems...

Newbie by TRCSr
Hello All, I just purchased a 2009 Miata MX-5 with retractable hardtop. This is the first roadster I have had since the 70's when I had an Austin Healy 3000. I have been a member of the Chev Tracker group for many years, but as soon as I sell that little gem I will be dropping out of the group. I...

Remote start for standard transmission? by Grant Edwards
Now that I'm heading into my first Minnesota winter in a long time without heated parking, I've been getting a bit jealous of people with remote starters. I know I should just tough it out, but that aluminum shift knob gets pretty cold and I hate wearing gloves while driving. All of the remote...

Can you id this part? by pws
I am 99% certain that this came off of a miata, probably from under the dash. Before I go digging for part numbers, does anyone recognize what it is? http://img.inkfrog.com/pix/pat/miatapart.jpg Thanks! Pat

Top down! by XS11E[_1_]
82F today, no sign of rain in sight, DAMN I was tired of driving with the top up..... I can't believe how much more I enjoy driving with the top down.. here's hoping it'll stay that way for a month or so now.

Gotcha, you damn drunk driver by pws[_1_]
I was being tailgated last night, nothing unusual, but I was able to pull into the right lane to let them pass. The next thing I know, they are almost past me, then the turn signal comes on and they immediately pull right over into my lane. Only serious braking on my part and luck prevented an...

Roll Bars??? by Jazz_Azz
How many of you have had roll bars installed??? I always have thought it strange that they weren't/aren't required. mine is a 2000 Miata MX-5. I have always told my Wife that if we get into a roll over wreck, try to get your head down as low as possible :-).

yes, it's a mileage thread by pws[_1_]
I was wondering what people are seeing as far as real-world MPG for the NC Miata (2006-2010), with a 5-speed. I am just curious about what is the best it is capable of on the highway with the top up as well as top down, and what it gets when driven with a heavy foot around town. Thanks, Pat

Who's here? by Chris D'Agnolo
Well, it's been entirely too quiet around here lately. The only really interesting posts I've seen lately on this thread were political (off topic) and as much as I love this groups ability to stay on topic (unlike most newsgroups), it was at least nice to see human communication taking place....

Aftermarket intake questions by Dana Rohleder
I am very happy with the performance of my Miata, but I am wondering if I can improve my current performance AND fuel economy with an aftermarket intake. Here is the rub - I currently get an AVERAGE of 30 MPG in daily driving, which is, from what I understand, better than average economy for my...
