It’s easy to set up, fits perfectly and looks amazing. One look at the back of your car through this mirror and you’ll feel like you’re back in 1950’s. The installation process is pretty seamless, all you need to do is screw in the bolts through the base of the mirror. All that’s left to do after that is just adjust the mirror position so it fits your needs.

 Jass Performance Vintage Style Cluster BezelNow that your interior rear mirror went back through time, we should turn our focus towards some other components. Instrument cluster bezel is a central component in every car, at least it should be because it holds vital information regarding safety and driving experience. It should have user-friendly layout, which would enable you to easily detect all signals and metrics. However, aesthetics should go hand to hand with functionality when it comes to design. Jass Performance Vintage Style Cluster Bezel has both functionality and amazing vintage design of all its components. Although fundamentally digital, this part radiates analog design solutions in order to make your interior look stylish.

The functionality is untouched, which means that you get everything you had before installing the part.

Toggle James Bond mode ON

We all remember the old 007 movies with toggle switches all around the car, deploying weapons and activating traps, etc. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could turn your Miata into a vintage delight straight out of a James Bond movie? With Jass Performance Popup & Hazard Switch and Toggle Electric Window Switches your car will have plenty of old school switches with unchanged functionality and ease of use. Everything, from the stainless material to the choice of font under the switches is designed just perfect.

Popup & Hazard switch allows you to toggle on or off your headlights and hazard lights. There is a separate switch for each function and the entire component needs no additional adjustments because even the connectors are OEM, so everything is just plug and play. You can even choose your favorite plate color and match it with the dominant color pallet of your interior.

Jass Performance Stainless El. Window Plate With Vintage Toggle El.Since the OEM windows switches are usually notorious for the “slow window” effect that occurs on some cars, changing the OEM switch is a smart solution. Jass Performance stainless electric windows switch is an exact fit for your Miata and allows you the same (in some situations improved) functionality while showing off a classy vintage look. The installation is pretty much basic, all you need is a pair of pliers to connect the wires.

Pimp my doors

The last piece of this puzzle are the door cards. I have nothing against the stock option, it’s great, don’t get me wrong. However, once you see how amazing CarbonMiata Handmade Quilted Door Cards fit and how astonishingly vintage your interior seems with these bad boys, you will see my point. The functionality stays intact, but the looks go way up to another level. You can choose from a wide array of materials and colors and make your car look “groovy”. The best part about this upgrade is that it’s totally plug and play. All you need to do in order to install cards is position the plastic trims in front of the existing holes and press them firmly against the door frame.

You can even combine these door cards with transmission tunnel cover that would match. This would make your car seem like a time machine that takes you back to 1950’s.

Having a modern-day vehicle with the soul of the early days really conveys a feeling of style and individuality. The best part of this whole idea is that you can unleash your creativity and just play with different options. After all, the most important is that you feel safe and comfortable in your car.
