    The specialize in Subaru and Mazda - especially performance and race work. Great guys. They've helped me out a few times when the problem was beyond my ability diagnose (what I thought was a water issue they knew immediately was a cam angle sensor). The do tuning, and they have a dyno on sight. They are fellow enthusiasts, and plenty of interesting cars hanging around the shop.

    We have had our Miata, 626 and RX7 worked on by MazdOnly since 1986. They only work on Mazda's and really do nice work. They are located in Atlanta. Also our suspension and tire work is done by Gran Tourismo, he also does a great job and i always notice sports cars from neighboring states in there getting their work done

    Brandon Todd is the only person that I've brought my vehicles to for the past 6 years! They do great work and are very reasonable on price! No unnecessary part suggestions either!

    Great for any kind of mechanical repairs.

    I have taken my Miatas and e30 here for various stuff I have not had time or the tools to do myself. Very good work! They work with modified and racecars too. Alignments, tire work, Suspension work, A/C, etc. Andrew, the shop foreman is very communicative, though often busy, and will make time to answer your questions and explain what they have found and your options to make repairs. Bery good at spotting preventative issues you should be aware of in the future.

    They can be a little pricey, but their work is excellent.

    Long Road Racing out of Statesville, NC (near Charlotte). I had them do some race fab work for me; rollcage, dropped floor pan, seat mount, interior paintwork. They specialize in race-prep and fab work on Miatas.

    Their communication was top-notch, they accommodated my schedule, and the work is beautiful.

    Somewhere for the UK Crowd. Blink Motorsport in Cheshire.

    https://www.blinkmotorsport.com/

    Damn good service and genuine good guys, they also know their stuff. Better known for their Naturally Aspirated work as they offer drive in/drive out packages. Anything Suspension or Engine, they've done it. They specialise in race prep too. They spend just as much time behind the wheel of their cars as they do working on others...

    Got their "145 Package" with ITBs - car puts out 160hp~. No bottom end work. Wicked fast enough and as solid as a rock in terms of reliability. Faster cars struggle to keep up if the driver doesn't respect the importance of weight transfer.

    Skuzzle Motorsport for those down the South of England. More "famous" as a company or shop, but never dealt with them myself. They seem to know their stuff too.
    You want a good car. I want a good miata.
