2004 Mazda Mazdaspeed Miata - Alex Lui (15 of 20)

The Perfect Weekend Roadster: 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata

Alex wanted to have a separate car apart from his daily driver to use on the weekends. He stumbled upon a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata that had an incredibly low 23,000 miles on the clock. He couldn’t pass this amazing car up and purchased the vehicle. Alex has done few mods to his Miata because he knows how pristine the vehicle is. Because he believes it will be a future collectible, he plans to keep it that way.

Aftermarket Shift Knob: 1994 Mazda Protege

Adding to my arsenal of newbie car mods on my first car, a ’94 Mazda Protege, I replaced my OEM shift knob several times. Nothing was wrong with my stock shifter, in fact looking back at it now, I think it looked the best out of all of the aftermarket ones I replaced it with. But, I finally got my very first car and I was ready to modify anything that I could get my hands on.

“Tinted” Tail Lights: 1994 Mazda Protege

For some odd reason, I thought it would be a good idea to “tint” my headlights and rear reflectors and to do it myself.I remember my dad telling me that it was a bad idea because all it was doing was making my lights and reflectors harder to see. Basically it wasn’t safe. Being the young stubborn teen I was, I still did it anyway because I thought it looked cool; plus, I simply wanted to do something—anything to my car.
