Hi guys, just joined up, and not actually an MX-5 owner as yet. I hope to become one over the next 3 or 4 months and am currently looking around at various mk2’s. I’ve been reading on here for a while now and it seems a very friendly community.
In all honesty i can’t wait to buy an MX-5 and make use of some of the amazing roads in my area and i’m hoping you guys and gals can help and advise me along the way.
Welcome Paul B, I live just over The Hill in Macclesfield, but my Parents have lived in, ‘The Capital of The Peak’’ aka The Home of Ferodo over 20 years. I /We are in the first month of ownership of our MX5. Loving every minute.

Well, it’s taken me almost 8 years from this post to finally get to own a 5! Got there in the end though haha
8 years, like it! Did it take that long to find the right car or that long to actually look for one?
2 months after posting this topic I split up with my wife so had a lengthy divorce, which meant I hadn’t really got the cash so it got put on hold. I moved house last June and my next door neighbour had a 5 that really kickstarted my desire again. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago and my neighbour said he was selling his car so I snapped his hand off for it. I know exactly what work has been done and how much cash he’s spent on mods etc and I got a bit of a bargain tbh.
Welcome to the club Paul, seems you took a while to get here like me (rekon it took me 4 years from first considering an NC to buying my ND). Be sure to wave if you see me about the Peaks!
Yeah will def give a wave if I see you about. Still waiting for my first wave from a fellow owner haha
I like to think of myself as a champion waver but I tend to be left hanging about 50% of the time Mostly by women it must be said, must be my face or something This is despite the standard “stick your hand out where the roof should be” being deployed much of the time! Got a few waves last week now lockdown has eased a bit the 5s are starting to venture back out again, so you won’t be waiting long! Just waiting for me to appear in the “spotted” section.
