Hi Gary, welcome on board and good luck with the search. Plenty of expertise on here so if you’ve got any questions ask away… :nerd_face:


If only you were looking 6 months ago! I live in Wythenshawe and part exchanged my MK3 2.0i Sport in June to get a MK4 Launch Edition :man_shrugging:
Keep us updated on your search :slight_smile:

Lol sods law Ian !!! What colour was it ?

Winning Blue:


Lol that’s the colour I’m looking for !!!

Winning Blue is nice, were never that many of them around.

Pity like you say nice colour

I believe they were only available in 2006, but after getting mine ended up seeing a couple in my local area with matching specifications which was kind of weird.

It is my favourite MX-5 colour to date, the lack of a decent blue for the MK4 was disappointing and resulted in my RF being the first car I have owned that isn’t blue!

If only they had offered dynamic blue mica (44J) as depicted in this render (by @Glasgow_Dave_Mk1 I think, stolen from miata.net):

Hi Gary, Are you still looking for an MX5? I will very soon be looking to sell my beloved MX5. Its on a 06 plate 2 litre engine in winning blue. It has got 75000 miles on the clock and was MOT’d last month. I also have a hard top for it as well. A change of job is the reason for sale otherwise I’d keep it! Let me know if you are interested.
