I am Thibor.
I am a new mx5 owner from Lincolnshire.
I live near Grantham but not in it.
I just got myself an MX5, hardtop sport tech, 2013 with only 31thou on the clock and full service history.
I can’t post a picture right now but I will try to do so in the near future.
It’s actually my second MX5, my first one was an mk2 but I only had it for 3 months due to a medical issue that stopped me from driving for nearly 3 years so I had to sell it because it would have rotted in the driveway.
I was advised to join the club when I had my mark2 but never got round to it.
I just got back to driving and so I got myself a newer mx5.
I am interested in coming to some of the events.
but right now I mostly have questions to ask in the forum.
the most pressing of which is what are the best tires for my 3.5?
another question is, is my 2013 a 3.5 or a 3.75
and yet another one that I will need to ask later is one about the suspension.
so more about me.
I’m now in my mid-40s
back in my 20s, I used to have an Opel Manta GTE exclusive.
which I heavily modified. 2.2 engine, racing shocks n springs from PMC, 1k sound system.
you know the dumb stuff 20-year-olds do!
however, it’s been over 15 years since I got behind the wheel of a rear-wheel-drive and I gotta admit I’ve forgotten a lot of things.
right now I’m considering buying myself an instructed track day to brush up on my driving.
I did some skid pan training back in my early 20s but 20 years is a long gap.
also, you might have noticed that I suck at writing, this is because I am dyslexic and had zero formal education in writing and I also have an odd way of speaking that often gets me in trouble because people are not used to it and so they tend to misunderstand me and often in the worst way possible! which is annoying.
anyhoo thats it for now
so HI ALL
