Have you learned about rolling the rear window over length of swim noodle so it doesn't buckle if you're too lazy to unzip every time?
These are the ones behind the seat or the ones next to the windshield?

If you hear sloshing noises the rockers can fill up too. Run a skinny drill bit up into the holes you will find near the jack mounting points.

Just get used to it. You can also get temporary trunk racks.
If you search around Miata.net some guys have remounted their spare underneath the trunk.

Requires a custom exhaust fab, IIRC.

That autoplayed for me -- might want to just link it...the mods don't like auto-anything.

My wife is the original owner of her '94. It currently has about 220k on it, just had the clutch done on it for the first time at about 218k. Also recently did the timing belt, water pump, and all of the fluids. Still runs strong and the AC blows cold!

I think mine has over 260,000 and still runs great. These cars are virtually indestructible. I think it's also the best, most bulletproof engine ever made by Mazda.
