I have stepped back into Mazda ownership after a break of a few years. I originally had a couple of mk1 MX5’s, then I got an RX8… since then I have had a multitude of different cars, until yesterday when I picked up a 2008 MX5 NC1 1.8 [Option Pack]. It’s fab!
It’s in such good condition (it doesn’t look like it has covered 78k miles) and the previous owner has been meticulous about its servicing, and it has been garaged as well. The dealership I bought it from have advised that the previous owner has had it Waxoyled as well, something which I will continue to do (though the intention is that I don’t use it when the roads have been gritted).
I think it is Stormy Blue, but one of the documents (from a Dealership that sold it to its 2nd owner) describes it as Bermuda Blue. However looking at http://www.roadster.blog/2013/05/roadster-colour-codes.html I don’t think that’s a colour for the NC?
So top of my list of things to do is change the headunit. It has the standard 1.8 HU with no Bose or anything like that. I have a Sony double din that I have taken out of my last car (an Alfa Romeo Brera - which is for sale if anyone is interested!!!) but my boyfriend thinks I should try and keep the car looking as standard as possible. However not having bluetooth, handsfree calling etc is already doing my head in and I have only had it 24 hours!!
Other than that I will keep it as is for a while. Maybe at some point I will think about a performance air filter, different exhaust, etc - but for now I am just going to enjoy it, and make the most of whatever sunshine comes my way (I have a new bobble hat to wear when it’s chilly - which I wore yesterday - cheesey photo attached!!).
If you see me in the Oxfordshire/Northamptonshire area give me a wave
