    Recovering sport bike rider can only pilot cars now!

    I have a 2015 Passat Limited Edition 1.8T and will be looking to improve handling and suspension compliance. A few extra ponies under the hood won’t hurt. As I can no longer ride my gentleman’s express (2000 Honda VFR800 Interceptor) due to permanent nerve damage in my arm/shoulder, I’m turning my attention to my 4 wheeled friend!

    You'd love a Miata.

    Welcome! have fun with the car, there is plenty of options for improving those cars, especially the 1.8T for sure for power and lots for suspension as well. Sorry to hear about the nerve damage, that sucks. I ride also and it would be hard for me to let go of my bikes.

    I also have a Mazda CX-5. I’m 6’3” and close to 250 (I was 225 when I rode bikes) - to big for a Miata, but that is the type of driving I enjoy. Have to find something I can fit in. But I still want to make my daily driver better!

    Yeah, a little big for a Miata unless you rework the seat cushion.
