I picked up my first today; a 1995 Eunos (Silver Stone, red mohair roof) from MX5 City near Pontefract and can completely understand why people fall in love with these cars. I had been looking for one for months intending to buy during the winter as a second car to my trusty old Jaguar XJ Sovereign. However the Jag died on the motorway a couple of weeks ago, threw a part in the auto box and, having covered 190,000 miles it wasn’t worth the huge repair bill - so my only car now is the Mazda and I love it more than I did the Jag. Already!
Anyway, the reason I’m posting is that it has an MX-5 Owners Club sticker in the screen - looks quite old - I wonder if anyone on here knows it? Reg: M213 CDM.
Let me know - I’d be fascinated.
Great service from Martin at MX-5 City too!
Welcome to the forum - enjoy your MX5.
Thank you! I’m sure I’m going to. Should have got one years ago
Funnily enough, I got the MX5, then I got the XJ.
welcome and enjoy the ride
What a coincidence - I loved the Jag though yours looks in a lot better condition than mine was. Beautiful to drive, though not as much fun as the Miata, but I was getting 45 to the gallon on the commute to work along the motorways - better than the Mazda I think.
And thanks for the kind welcome everybody!
Yes, on a motorway run, the V8 Jag gets better miles than my 1.8 MX5… Very different cars. I don’t put a lot of miles on either car anyhow, so fuel consumption is a ow priority for me.
The really old OC stickers are blue. Saw your car on MX5City’s website. Looks tidy… Looks like MX5city has added the roof themselves. Watch those front mudflaps; easily damaged by sleeping policemen.
Yes, very different. Mine was a 2.7 diesel; I thought that was quick - yours must be very rapid! Fantastic cars - just can’t find that version with relatively low mileage anymore
It is on old blue OC sticker; I’d love to know who on here owned it but I guess if they didn’t replace it with another they’re unlikely to be active on this site any longer.
Thanks for the tip re. the mud-flaps - I had no idea. I’m determined to look after it - it appears to be pretty much rust free; going to keep it garaged and off the wet/salted roads as much as possible. Also thinking about taking it back to MX-5 City next month to get a Waxoyl treatment. Good idea?
It’s sunny here today (unusual at the moment) and I’m lucky enough to be working from home - took her out for a quick half hour run on the country roads - can’t stop smiling when driving (didn’t get that with the Jag!).
