  • The Girlfriend's 2000 LS

    So the insurance company wouldn't total her car and the body shop fixed it really well, so she's staying in the Miata community. :lol:

    For now, mechanically the car is stock and it sits on OEM struts and Eibach springs, which keeps a comfortable ride, isn't bouncy or stiff, and lowers it just enough to get rid of the 4x4 look. She drives through the horrible Atlanta streets everyday for school and nothing big will be done performance-wise, so nothing more than that was necessary.
    Now the car also has a spoiler thanks to the body shop. I think it helps a lot for appearance.
    Next on the list is an intake, maybe an exhaust, wheels/tires, STB, rollbar, and that's about it.

        Saw it at the tech day when you were doing the springs, the shop did a great job on the bodywork. Good looking car.

            Agreed. I thought for sure it was done. They snuck the spoiler on there last Friday as they had to fix a few things here and there that we found.

            Boots? What is boots? :lol:
            Yes, I know, however, I'm not paying for the upgrades, so I don't get to choose the upgrades, only voice my opinion.

                Some nice wheels will set the car off.


                I dare you to show her the pink Rota D2s ;)
                You know she'll want them!

                  :lol: Funny you mention those, I just ran across a set and was sending her a picture message with them. We'll have to see what the reaction is. She likes pink, but not a ton of it, she keeps it pretty well balanced.

                    Yes PLEASE get new wheels. Also don't really like the sideskirt if that's what it is and that rear mud flap looking thing. But all that may look good with wheels I just hate those wheels lol. But clean base for a project and glad to hear it was fixed right.

                      lol I'm not a fan of the stock wheels either, that's why we're shopping... The sideskirts and rear mudflaps are part of the OEM LS appearance package. Won't be changing those out for anything else. She likes them. Overall, there's not much that's going to be done to this car.
                      And got the official "no" on the pink D2s. :lol:

                        The body shop did a really good job, looks like new. But as said above, some wheels would really set it off.

                        I really need to do one of these journals. :lol:

                          Whenever i repaint my car(black), i am highly considering doing pink wheels. My dad will have a heart attack.

                          :edit: where'd you get that wing from, i want one just like it.

                              eBay. About $100. It's OEM, they sell them on there in many different OEM colors, but we just bought one random one and the body shop stripped it and painted it her car's color, since it's Silverstone, but with a little more metallic flake in it.
