Picked up my first MX5 this week, absolutely loving it!


It’s a Sport with Bose and A/C, 33k with FSH and from what I can see no rust. Just need to sort out the yellow cloudy headlights and sort out the ride height.

Thanks Scho. Pics were taken by the seller.. I have since fitted a "Stubby" aerial and my personalized plate since then.

Hopefully post my own pics soon!

Got my fourth a couple weeks back. This time an NC. All others were NBs. LOVE IT.

2.0 sport with Bose. Of course most importantly - no rust.

First '5' after many years of V8 two seaters.

Cannot say how impressed I am with this little beauty. Launch edition of NC series with loads of extras. 2 litre unit, Bilstein, Bose, Leather etc etc.

Only 30k miles and absolutely immaculate. FSH and all bills.

Nice.

I came from a big V8 as well. I sometimes miss the torque and the sound, but the MX5 is so much fun, it's hard to think of anything else which is much more fun really... Here's my Sport Tech:

It's a dealer fit option, seperate prices for the front, side, and rear trims and they're not cheap. If you just want the parts MX5parts have them:

https://www.mx5parts.co.uk/side-skirts-black-mk4-p...
https://www.mx5parts.co.uk/rear-airdam-skirt-black...

Nearly £900 inc VAT for the bits. Their accessories are always silly money, I bought the perspex wind deflector recently and that was £160, but oddly I think I only paid £180 fitted for the Mazda (Eibach) lowering springs when I ordered the car!

3rd MX-5 but my first NB.

Turbo conversion (200bhp/243bhp maps) and a whole host of other tasty modifications, all of which have been carried out by reputable garages within the last 3000 miles (standard before then). Sills replaced last year, chassis rails replaced this year (MX-5 Restorer). Matching hardtop as well smile

Not collecting until Friday, but I think it's a fitting replacement for my old MR2 Turbo. Certainly a lot more playful.



I'm very excited.

Picture of my second NA after a trip up to the Lake District for a wedding, last year:



Fantastic condition and only 60k from new. Sold to a friend on the proviso that I get first refusal if he decides to sell. Made way for this:



The first NA died a horrible death 3 years ago, after a home supercharged build. Here it is next to my friend's ND in 2017:



It was pretty ratty anyway and was broken to fund the MR2 Turbo which has just made way for the NB at the top. Full circle (pic of MR2, because why not):



And finally, a picture of my old NA and MR2 together at Caffeine and Machine:
