    Hello from Modena, Italy!

    Hi,
    I'm Alessandro from Modena, 23 years old and owner of a Supreme Blue NBFL 1.8 Mid, which is mine since 2015.

    It's my first sports car, since the Peugeot 106 Rallye and Honda Civic EG6 were too pricey for my pockets, I changed my plan and started looking for a MX-5.

    Now it's my track/fun/daily car, and I always find things I want ti improve or change

    I think the italian MX-5 community is not as good as the ones in other countries, so I began to read other forums.

    Welcome, Alessandro! I was afraid to open your thread and see a La Ferrari but I am happy to see another MX-5 MKII enthusiast.

    Thanks to all of you!

    At the moment, these are the mods on my car:
    - SSR Type-C 15x7, ET37 with Toyo R888R (both for trackdays and daily use, I just like too much the grip available);
    - Φhlins Road &Track coilovers, with stock sway bars and Racing Beat endlinks;
    - Bolted on roll bar (made by a local roll bars and cages shop, it's actually an improved TR Lane design);
    - stock big brakes calipers, Project Mu HC+ pads, slotted discs, braided steel lines and Motul RBF660 oil;
    - stock engine 1.8 VVT, beside a Pipercross air filter, Cobalt spark plugs wires and a 42mm alluminium IL Motorsport radiator (the OEM one exploded during the first summer track day );
    - few engine bay bits, such as the Suzuki Cappuccino washer bottle and the Beatrush radiator panel;
    - stock exterior, I just installed the front and rear tow hooks from Beatrush, red rear side markers and a very short antenna;
    - interiors: unknown wooden gear knob (probably from some 60's italian sports cars), Mitsubishi Eclipse MK3 dash vents, three VDO-style gauges.
