I have used nothing but Corksport exhaust hangers on both NAs I've had. Personally, I'm a huge fan. My NB ('02) exhaust is starting to rattle due to the hangers aging. I have the Flyin' Miata cat back exhaust but am lacking any NAs nearby to compare...

Any reason these http://corksport.com/corksport-ureth...hangers-1.html won't work on a NB? Listed through '97 but I don't see why they wouldn't work on a NB.

Thanks stoly, I'll see what I can find. Width is comparable to the a4, the seat bottom is a bit longer though

In the event that this is an April Fool's joke, you're going to have a bad time. There's an express no-trolling rule for this thread.
Believe it or not, it was an actual question. Because the oil dipstick on the Cali emissions is flexible to get around the first Cat & the Federal dipstick is not as flexible (two different designs I did not know. Sorry for the misunderstanding

This, I think... Starting to question my own sanity at this point...
My question was stated incorrectly. it concerned checking the oil level

Are chrome 97 M Edition wheels rare? Theyre 15x6 6-spokes.

Well, there were about 3,000 '97M editions produced, so not incredibly rare. They are one of the heaviest OEM wheels. I sold a set for $80.

Cool. I was just curious because there is a set local in good condition for cheap, and I figured if they were at all desirable, I could flip them.

Right, i get that. I've had both.

I still don't understand why there's a question. The dipstick doesn't attach to the manifold at any point, so it's irrelevant.

Trying to decide what tires to go with for 14x8 front and 14x8.5 rear. 185/55, 185/60, 195/55, 195/60....thoughts? I keep asking myself the same question but I'd like some other opinions. Trying to keep more sidewall for comfort/dd and height purposes.

For a x8, I'd be looking for a 205, even though that'll pretty much stick you with R-Comps.

Nah there's tons of 205/50s out there anywhere from all seasons to Hohos.

But yes, i'd be looking for a 205/50, as well. Fits perfect on an 8.

949 lists their poly bushings as the same for both gens, just in different amounts depending on generation. I think NA is 4, NB is 5.

Care to share some links or some names of some 205/50-14s? I thought this would be a great fit too but I can't seem to find any street/all season tires in this particular size.

Mine fit fine without any modification. I thought it needed trimming to sit in better but trimming didn't do anything

Since my last MS question here made all my troubles disappear:

Is the car having trouble starting because of a timing issue or am I adding too much fuel?

Edit: Bummer I can't upload MSQ or MSL here...

How does one really know what their damper setting are set to?
My Flex for example say they ship from the factory set to full stiff, or 16 clicks.
But how do you really know? Will they keep clicking past 16? Is there some kind of stopper or a way to tell you've gone too far? Same goes for if you were to click down past full soft.
What are you supposed to do if you forget what you have the damper set to? How would you then know how many clicks it would take to reset the damper to full stiff?

I'd really rather not screw these up by over clicking the things, because that totally sounds like something I'd do.

Experience = Tein Basis, XIDA-S, and Ohlins.

They all stop. Er, put another way, they click, click, click, and then stop in both directions. (Sans Basis, of course, as they only have height adjustment)

I hate that there is no way to say this without sounding like a dolt but it is what it is... You have to keep up with the clicks. Soooo... keep notes and start at full stiff on all four corners. (This is assuming you already have the car level and/or set on all four corners to your liking)

Drive it. Then a guesstimate, make the adjustments, notate, and take another drive on the same road. Rinse and repeat. Guesstimates quickly turn into tuning.

You can't over, or under, click.
