Hello my name is Brian. I just bought my first Miata and promptly joined this forum. I owned a Triumph Spitfire for some time, and just sold that to move into the Miata world. My initial thoughts are that I made a great decision in doing so. The car is a very nice fit for my driving habits, as well as the amount of time I have to dedicate to the car in general. British car maintenance is a legit labor of love.

That said since picking the car up on Saturday I have already fixed a stuck passenger side seat belt, and am looking into my airbag light issue. Please see my poll below as I am trying to get a feel for how folks typically deal with this particular issue. I am not new to cars but definitely new to Miata, so any insight is greatly appreciated!

Other than that a nice tune up / service should be all that is needed. The car already drives very nice, looking forward to getting back in it.

Thanks for the feedback. Car is a 1996, and I understand the airbag module is up under the dash pretty deep.


I would love to replace the steering wheel and just disable the airbag. Would that still involve having a functioning horn? And I really want the light to be off

Dash isn't that hard to remove. I have done full out/in in a couple hours. I happen to have the airbag module you need in my parts box.
Also, I got your message about a top but your email keeps getting bounced back. Please give my cell a try if you are still interested... 203-232-8298
