Does anyone know if OK Miata is still in business. I ordered some parts a few weeks back and received part of the order. After that I have been unable to contact them by phone or email.

I had a customer ask me about them last week as he was waiting on a set of pads; he eventually caught them on the phone, and they promptly sent... the wrong pads. There's a thread on this board addressing some customer service issues, also pointing out that it's a home-based business and the family has had some issues "recently".

Good luck.

Similar experience here. Tried e-mail & phone several times, then sourced parts elsewhere. Too bad. Hope things work out for them.

Same here, I was going to order some wheels and tried to reach them for 2 weeks, then gave up.

I placed two orders with them last year and both times it took over 30 days to get the whole order. I had to call multiple times to ever get everything and they were very hard to get on the phone.

I too hope every thing is alright. But in the meantime if you need anything we probably have it.

I had the same problem paid for the parts and weeks went by and no parts. Called many times with no call back. Finaly had my bank repalce the money back into my account then she called me right back. later found out she never placed the order with her supplier. Great prices just don't plan on seeing any parts for this season

Try Ace Hardware. Nice selection..some assembly required. Very reasonable price.

Seems to have been am issue for some time. Last year it took multiple calls to get the adjustable end links I ordered. Too bad because they seem to have had a great (nearly) captive market.
Oh well.

Well I sent them an overnight signature required letter cancelling the balance of the order so we will see what happens.

I had to call them several (3?) times before they finally shipped my parts... Total PITA... As said earlier, great prices, but don't order anything if it's remotely time-sensitive... Like on the timescale of months...

I should have read this thread 2 weeks ago... I ordered my new seat through them, they said the order would be shipped in the Morning and to expect it Monday. It's Monday.

I've never ordered anything from them, but only because they don't have online ordering. That's my minimum criteria for a vendor. If they don't make the minimal effort to do online orders, they're likely going to lack in other areas as well.

there is another thread about "subpar" or "mediocre" miata. this has been a recurring theme for some time. I cringe whenever I see someone recommend them...
