Thanks for letting me join.
I’m Steve, 44, and I live near Leighton Buzzard in South Bedfordshire.
I’ve owned 39 cars and I’m looking to add an MX5 to make it 40. I’m a car enthusiast.
I’ve not owned an MX5 previously and have always thought about getting one.
Budget will be approx. £2k so I’ll be looking at a 1.8 NB.
I’m also a biker and own a modified '13 Honda CB1100 and a '66 CBR300R (the commuter) and I’m a serious cyclist and own 3 road/race bikes so space in my garage always has to be well thought out.
I know most of the stuff to look for with MX5’s as well as general car bits anyway.
My wife doesn’t want me to buy an MX5 but she isn’t really into cars.
My concerns when looking will be the usual rust and I feel like I could be hunting around for a while to find a decent one.
I’d rather buy from an enthusiast who knows their car but I know I can’t be too picky. Just as long as I find one that’s been well cared for, I’ll be happy.
