  1. Am working on 2010 Gran Touring and does anyone know the function of mgi relay? Have clicking sound and wondering if related to relay.

  2. Hi Old Pueblo Miata Club Members,

    I hope you are well. I understand you are a Miata group. I’m hoping you are also a Mazda loving group in general. I have an unusual opportunity for those who know and love Mazda’s. I own a 2002 Mazda Millenia S. I have not posted it or parked it out yet. As you may know, the Millenia S is a luxury car similar in size and comfort to the Lexus ES, Audi A6 or Mercedes E class with the rare Miller Cycle Supercharged 210-hp, 2.3 liter V6. Ours is in the most desirable color combination of Black/Gray exterior with Gray leather interior. It has all the options (power everything, moon-roof, Bose, chrome rims, tinted windows, heated seats, CD, climate control, leather, power seats, etc). It is in excellent shape with only 114k miles (less than 7k miles per year). We simply have too many cars and one needs to go. So, I’m reaching out to you thinking someone who loves Mazda’s and knows how rare this one is, has an opportunity to get one.

    If you’re interested, please send me an email to sabbit at gmail dot com

    Thank you!

    Steve A.

  3. Here are some tips for 2016-2018 Generation 4 (ND) Miatas covering cup holders, hidden VIN and the “spare” kit (air pump and fix-a-flat device).

    Disregard posting. The OEM wind blocker is simple to install. Pop old one off and new one on.


  5. Try http://www.panchosshop.com

    Top repairs are hard to find. There is another upholster shop on our Miata Resources forum (Diversified) but someone recently called them and they didn’t seem too enthused about a repair job.

  6. Are you talking about the donut tire?

  7. If you check the Miata Resources pages, two local shops have been consistently recommended by members for service issues. Don’t think you can go wrong with either.
