I have been lurking around for a while as I was looking for a MX5, I am returning to the fold as it were having owned a MK1, a 2.5 and then finally a NC3.5 Sport Tech (which is now in Sydney Australia, long story!)
So the problem, I needed a bit of a project, something I can get the spanners out for, coming from a nearly new BMW there was little chance, hence my quest for a MX5. I bought a NB Mk2.5 from the for sale section on here, it belonged to HB and was the 18,800 mile ICON in grey. The car in fact is everything which Hazel said it was, you can tell it has led a good life! trouble is I am missing some of the creature comforts and ‘modern’ gizmos.
So the dilemma, a ND is no good, no spanner work, so a NC 3.5 Sport Tech having owned one before seems like the logical solution, or is it?
the purity of a mega low mileage NB 2.5
or the feel of a ‘more modern’ Sport Tech
I am sure there are 2 points of view here and i know it is down to personal taste, but i still drive a lot and perhaps a 2005 was too far a step back in time.
