Finally got my 2017 Miata

She seems great as is but I am sure I will be longing for some upgrades in a few months. What I can't get over is how every punk in a hatchback with an aftermarket exhaust wants a drag race. Whatever, save it for the track buddy!

Absolutely loving the car!

I am finding the handling a little quirky. I don't mind that it is not super stiff; however, the body roll can be down right unnerving, particularly on fast sweepers. It seems to just drop on to the outside back wheel. It definitely needs more roll bar.

On the power side, as per some of the blogs, this motor is all about torque. Also, after having a few turbocharged cars I find the responsiveness delightful. Kudos to Mazda for bucking the trend and not going turbo for the sake of the EPA mileage cycle.

Congrats! First I bought better brake pads and also high temp brake fluid. Then hard dog roll bar. then the good-win exhaust---very cool and easy to install....sounds awesome and saves weight.Now i will go with anti sway bars. then done for a while. enjoy

One more reason to own an ND instead of a Boxster. First dealer service, $59! Love it.

What a beauty. Not seen this model in black in real life yet. Looks amazing on pic. Thanks for sharing.
