Well, thanks for the reports and saving me the round trip on trying them out only to return them. Sounds like they are a Miata only piece…and there is still an opportunity for someone to build a Fiat version. Cheers

Also coveted a set.. but emailed Cravenspeed and they said they don't fit a 124:

"The ND and the 124 are build differently in this area. The 124's trunk is actually lifted up when these are installed and closed for some reason".

Damn, blast, hellfire! etc etc

Me too. Disappointed also. Would not go up high enough to allow attaching screw to thread in. I could massage/modify hinge hole, but considering the price, no. Returning.
Same. I thought about modifying it, too.

To CravenSpeed’s credit, they paid to ship the part back and I’ve already received my refund. That kind of stellar customer service makes me want to buy more products from them

I emailed them when I first ordered the part and they confirmed the part fit. Of course, it did not. I suspect this might have been a learn for them.

So I asked Cravenspeed if this works for 124 and they said yes.
So, I ordered it. Will install in Spring.
Did these work? On the MX5 Things site, they state they do not work on the 124 Spider.

Reading the later posts, they do not, and Cravenspeed refunded their money.
Yes. I found them on the MX5 Things site and they state there they do not work with the 124 Spider.

So when I spoke with Cravenspeed (where I bought them from), they assured me it would work.
It don't work. Actually I liked the way it popped before as it seems these poppers restrict it from popping and make it stiffer to open and close.
So off they come and maybe I'll sell to a local mazda person.
So fair warning as for someone who actually tried them: "DO NOT BUY FOR 124 SPIDER"
