Hey what?s up guys, ok well im really bored and want to work on my car, so im thinking about taking out the carpet, but I cant deside, my brothers old NA was fully stripped and was noisy and it got really hot, your legs would BURN lol, I just don?t like my tan carpet at all, its old, dirty and looks like ****. But I can?t decide, plus my cars black, with black hardtop so once summer comes around BURN MOTHAAAAA.... lol BURN!
I know a few of you guys have no carpet, what do you guys think?
Does it really get that hot without carpet?
How about noise?
Pics?

- Thanks

Switch it all to black. Dont strip it. You will regret it later. Its not the carpet that insulates from heat and noise its the insulation under that. Plus the welds under there look horrable.

Can you remove the floor mats and take a few pictures of the carpet?
I think I know somebody from the club that wants to do the opposite, so maybe you can meet and you can swap carpets!

yes swap it out to black, i dont get why mazda would put leather in this car, trying to make it luxurious bahaha, and if you did strip it, are you from vegas? cause thats what it says on ur location. good luck with that in the summer buddy, i had carpet in my miata, with my hardtop on in cali and i almost had heat stroke (114 that day, no a/c)
