If this piece is cracked or brittle, serious water damage can occur. If you are planning to do a top installation yourself purchase any top WITH the rain rail your installation will go much smoother. If installation is to be done by a professional you can save money by using your existing rain rail if it is in good shape. The savings by not purchasing a rain rail needs to be weighed against the cost of a longer install time.
Good morning Brian, I finally got a chance to put the exhaust on, great advice, it's just loud enough, solid product. I'm running without the baffles, sounds great in power band. Take care, you have all my future upgrade business.........regards.

Brian, Thank you!!! We last spoke in November about some upgrades for my 2011 MX5 soft top. It has finally warmed up in NE Ohio and two relaxed weekends of wrenching on my car were well worth the effort. Installation of the RoadsterSport ceramic coated street header was straight forward and took under 8 hours, including a 40 minute test drive and cleanup of the garage! Combined with the RoadsterSport Q exhaust, the sound is fantastic and the increased torque, horsepower and performance make it a blast to drive. The addition of the Cobalt shock tower brace, Racing Beat sway bars, ILM front power train and X braces really enhanced the ride - minimal body roll, comfortable and very responsive. Your recommendations really helped transform the car from great to fantastic. Your research, product development and candid recommendations make you a standout in the industry. My only questions are - what's next on my list .... And how soon will my wife want the same upgrades on her 2012 PRHT ... Again, thank you!!! Charles G
