It’s been a year this week since I got the NB. In that time I’ve put 16723 miles on it and done the following mods:
Racing Beat 1.25" sway bar w/ brace blocks and poly bushings
OEM Mazdaspeed Miata springs
Koni Yellow adjustible sport shocks
Pioneer double DIN head unit
Voodoo shift knob w/ custom shift boot
Custom quilted headliner
Flowmaster 60 Delta series muffler
SuperBrightLEDs switchback turn signals
Yellow fog lights
GV front lip rep
Driver’s seat foamectomy (still need to do the passenger seat)
I think that about covers it.
When I got it:
Unfortunately my leather steering wheel has taken a beating in that time.
Yikes. There’s an ‘02SE wheel in really good condition on eBay for $130 but unfortunately that isn’t $130 I have to spare at the moment. My other thought is to buy an all-black one (from a Protege or non-SE miata) since they’re more common and dye it brown, or get the holy grail, the wood OEM NB Nardi wheel:
UNF. I wish I had the funds because that wheel makes my heart hurt.
