Smooth Miata

There's not a lot you can do to improve the profile of the NA MX-5; as modern roadsters go, it's pretty much perfect. But the addition of a set of smooth, muscular arches and a substantial front spoiler turns the little Mazda's cheeky face into something more menacing. It really works well with the silver too - a colour that can look a little cheap on base models really enhances the deliberately jarring addenda here. Nicely done.

Can't quite put my finger on it, but I don't like that at all. It's certainly not smooth. I should like the Group N style bodywork, and the "proper" ride height, but it's been applied so shonkily that the end result disappoints. Look at the headlight cover/bonnet gap. It's a 2 second job to lift that so it lines up correctly, but he hasn't bothered. The nosecone is a bit of a mess. But it's not so battered as to be ratty or a track slag.
