I bought my first MX5 NB 2000 1.8IS last year, after wanting one for a few years.
She has her hardtop on at the moment and is tucked away in the garage, but I do still take her out for a drive if the roads are dry enough.
Looking forward to the owner clubs meet ups,If you see me on the roads give me a wave!
Here’s a few pictures taken before my s/steel back box was installed…
Hello and welcome…!
hi and welcome that was my old stomping ground
Hi and welcome from another Hertfordshire MX5 owner !
I’m in the area of Broxbourne, what mark are you driving?
Hiya David, welcome to the club…nice car.
Currently I have a Mk4 but I have had a Mk3 Sport and both 1.6 and 1.8 Mk2.5’s. My favourite was the Mk2.5 1.8 “Arctic”, I am in North Herts.
I test drove a NC sport and a 1.5 ND RF, great cars.
The wife was happy for me to start my love affair with MX5’s with the NB and eventually I hope to go to a ND but I’m happy with my choice…
Was after one of these…wanted to buy one that popped up literally within walking distance (North Chingford), the sales guy told me the potential buyer was flying down from Scotland and had left a deposit. Seeing it in the flesh, it was more elegant than I imagined.
I now have an MX-5 NB Icon V1 that I am getting it where I want, after the NA and 2 NCs (ZSport) and Boxster 986.
Great, fun cars and you also get the benefit of the cable throttle too, enjoy the start of your MX-5 ownership David…the first is always special.
I’m Herts as well! Perhaps once this darn pandemic is over we can arrange a nice meet up somewhere?
Yes definitely, looking forward to that day!
You can have a good look round my ND as well when we do👍
hi I’m currently driving a mk4 but I have had a mk2 euphonic and a mk3 Z sport , and the Z sport was the one that I should never have sold
My buyer for the “Arctic” came down from Manchester to buy it in Hertfordshire. Although I got well above market price I wish I had never sold it !
The Z sport is so hard to find now, I saw a (very) neglected one in Norwich before I bought my NB. Almost felt like leaving a note to buy on the windscreen!
I understand why!
Interesting to see that the older cars have been the favourites, thanks for the warm welcome everyone!
I’m in St Albans - quite a few MX5 owners around. I have a 2.5 about to go for surgery (hopefully ready for summer!)
Sorry to David the OP, little bit off topic…I bought a set of ZSport wheels that are in the garage, just incase I purchase another NC in the future. Great looking car…as are all the MX-5’s
