I’m in the West Midlands and I’m looking to change from a '04 SLK 350 to an MX5 as my second car over the next few months.
I’m searching for something convertible, lighter on its feet, manual (the autobox in the SLK doesn’t agree with me) and that my wife will also drive. She’s scared of the power available in the Mercedes - that, and the sound, is probably going to be the main thing I will miss! The slight loss of practicality isn’t a problem as I also have an estate.
I’m thinking that a MX5 3.5/3.75 2.0 PRHT is the way forward here. Budget around 10k but fairly flexible.
To get the Mrs on board colour is important so we are looking for one of the following (in order of preference):
Sport Venture Edition in Deep Crystal Blue
Venture Edition in Radiant Ebony (not keen on the brown seats - but this one has stone https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202006240448607)
Sport Graphite in Aquatic Blue Mica
Are there any other versions I should be considering? A definite no to White or Black cars though!
