Hi guys. Glad you like my miata. Here are a few more pics taken today morning from my cell phone. I have installed an original MAZDASPEED lip spoiler and i think its adding to its looks.

Thanks mate. Yes, arush did the paint job. I got the alloys myself and the interiors from someone elce. Yes, true even im considering changing the front numper plate ( actually its a sticker, not even a plate.)

The quality of restoration is commendable & the baby looks like she's just been rolled out of the factory.

I can't take eyes of the miata. That was my favourite haunt. Couldn't get a decent Miata when I was searching for the car in US. Hence settled for the MX6. That explains my handle too!
I had to sell the MX6 when I came back. I used to feel bad many a days. Seeing your miata, the spirit is up again. Save up and go over to choksi!
Way to go Varun!

yes i am, im planing to import a new engine for her somewhere around this year end. Have seen a turbocharged one with 180 hp. Regarding the hard top, i yet havent found one. Importing one from singapore or uk doesnt make sense. Please guys, let me know if you all come across anyone in india wanting to sell the hard top.

Thanks mate, thats the reason it took so much time. The interiors were first done in beige leather and were not upto my expectations. Got them ripped off and got this camel colour nappa leather stitched. I guess was worth the delay and the extra bucks.

i note that like the BMW, you are selling her off before even enoying her. Is there a fault in the car or are you wheeler dealing ?

The paint job looks fine, and congrats on the outcome.

I am not nit-picking, but. Why dont you put correct badges, the car will look stunning with them. Also the repro tail lenses look too much out of sync with such a nice car.

The spoiler is placed a bit outside.

Wheels look tooo gud, nice choice of wheels.

Where did you get the top job done, done neatly, why a large rear window.

Why dont you show us some interior pics.
