Anyone know where I can get those annoying center press clips that hold on the MSM front lip? Didn't find them on rosenthal. I broke several of them when installing my TDR splitter

Try Jim Ellis mazda parts.

I need to figure out how to make my lip sit right if i'm going to keep with the Mazdaspeed front end. I need to post pictures of what's going on.

Those things are $4.19 each...

Nevermind, that was the wrong clip... I don't think they carry it either. Guess I will see if another style clip from the fender liners or something will fit it.

Call Rosenthal, I've had to do this quite a few times hunting down gaskets/seals/bolts for my engine build. Jason can get it for you, give him a ring!

Recently installed a MSM front lip on my GFs nb2. Used stainless bolts with a fender washer on each side and a lock nut on the end.

Worked out extremely well... kinda want to take out the plastic clips on mine and redo the mounting this way.

Something to consider instead of hunting for a plastic clip.

I had gotten a hole in my radiator I wanna say maybe a month after buying the car. So I never got a chance to see how well the stock radiator performed on the track or autox. But the Mishimoto drops right in and hasn't given me any problems. The only think was if you don't buy the slim fan setup, the oem fans fit, but don't line up perfectly, one bolt hole will be off. Not a huge deal.

According to Oliver(BigX5Murf), you can get the slim fan setup for around $140 if you call and complain to Mishimoto the stock fans don't fit. I know he mentioned he had to do some trouble shooting on getting them wired in, but last time I saw his car, they were working fine.

I would do the Mishimoto over the FM setup every time. FM's is just overpriced if you ask me. I'm sure it makes a difference in hard track conditions, but for autox and street use the sub $500 Mishimoto route is great in my book. I've got no experience with the Koyo's, but from what I hear they are pretty nice as well.

Well like I said if you buy the slim fans it drops right in. FM fans or Mishimoto etc, your still going to have to wire them in.

Question: Just how horrible do the ebay projector lights look?

I need a passenger housing for my MSM, looks like the tab was broken at some point and plastic-welded back together, but i'm guessing at the same time, the reflector broke loose of the housing, so the light bounces up and down while drive. EXTREMELY annoying.

And of course, finding headlights for this thing is ridiculous, and i refuse to pay the obnoxious prices they go for. Need another option as backup.

Thanks! I've got super-hires versions of all of these plus a few more if anyone's interested.

And:
The 04-05 Mazdaspeed Miata Thread

Basically: Get a piece of black plastic the right shape, drill holes in the bottom of your stock air dam thing, bolt it on, drill holes in the bumper at the top of the fog lamps, bolt tie rod on.
