Please welcome (via the power of a crap camera on an iPhone3) my 'new' MX-5



The details are as follows.

1997 P UK 1.8is
93,000 miles
3 owners
FSH, the most recent being charged at just under £400 carried out at a Mazda main dealer
MOT to July 2013
Newly installed headunit
4 x new Dunlops
New stainless exhaust
Huge history file along with original owners wallet & handbooks

Bought for £600

Needs a bit of attention on the sills (not too bad) and it's going to the body shop next week at a very reasonable sum

Could do with a new hood (have a good condition used one being fitted for £150)

All in all it will stand me at SOTW budget when finished and will be used my me and the mrs to bomb about it.

I welcome myself to the MX-5 fold smile

Indeed. Fortunately I was able to get the bodyshop quote before negotiations took place.

We sold it about 6 months ago. Wasn't in the market for another until this presented itself at a price that was too good to ignore.
