Hey everyone! New owner of an 2006 NC. A CEL popped up last night and I'm hoping it's just an evap leak or something. Is there anybody in Miami that has a ScanGauge I could use to clear it? Mine is on it's way but I don't want to put it off if it's something serious :l

Saturday Club Meet Ideas

First off I have to say I enjoyed myself at the meet on Sat 7 Feb, coming from Hawaii and a great Miata Club there made me want to reach out to the Miata community here that much more.

I had the distinct honor to meet with a few of the top brass that night and although I think I talked their ears off, All I'm all I think it was a great opportunity for me.

I would encourage anyone who hasn't attended a meet to make it out, as a newcomer it gave me insight into what this club is all… Continue

On Saturday, January 17, 2015, the club joined in the Redlands Riot Road Rallye that was organized by club members, Rob & Robin Burr.  We met at the 84 Diner and drove to Cauley Square where we paid the $10 entry fee and received our map and scavenger hunt questions.  We then hopped into our roadsters and took off for a fun day driving around the scenic Redlands and collecting our answers.  The highlight stops were Burr Berry Farm, Knaus Farms (fabulous fruit jams, breads and sticky…

Hi, I'm somewhat new to the region and was seeking some advice.  I've been using my dad's Miata ('99) and the rain rail needs to be replaced.  I took it to the Mazda dealer and he said it would be at least $1,000 to replace the rail.  I thought that was kind of high considering the posts I've read said it is fairly simple.  Does anyone have any advice on replacing the rain rail?  Or do you have a go-to person?  I would like to get it fixed sooner because the poor trunk is taking a beating.

Thanks-

Rain rails are very delicate. Even a slight bend will cause your soft top to leak. It's not impossible, you just need to know what you're doing. Also, try going to an upholstery place that specializes on soft tops for a quote on replacing the rain rails. Most likely the price will be much cheaper than the dealer. For 1000$ consider buying yourself a hardtop instead!
