Hey guys you all know your stuff about mx5’s, have a look at this link and tell me if you think it is worth it-http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/1516866.htm
And I have been there today and looked at it really as nice as the photos look.
Personally, looking at the styling it would suggest its been owned by a boy racer and may have been thrashed within an inch of its life. Being advertised on piston heads may also confirm this. I think there are nicer cars out there for the money. just my opinion though. the styling looks awful. On the other hand, it could be a really nice car but i would have to change the wheels, get rid of the roll bar and replace the clear lights at the back with originals.
If you like it go for it It’s not over the top with the chrome - wheels, roll bar and a bit on the steering wheel. Other than that it’s very calm.
Personally I like the wheels, with an all black car I think you can get away with them.
I’ve got more chrome on my car and I’m not a boy racer
Looks great in my opinion.
I’m pretty sure that Ady likes the wheels:
I think Ady should check copyright on his mods!
-that car on Pistonheads is a bit of a looky-likey isn’t it?
Well the car is now mine, woop woop.
Sorry Ady for my car looking a bit like yours .
Nice one, looks great
Looks great mate, welcome to the party—
OMG I don’t believe what I have done, I have just been out to look at my car and I put the roof down and the rear plastic window just split I don’t get it, it wasn’t frosty just cold.
Any body know of a good place to get a replacement and how much it might be?.
A very upset
Best thing to do would of been but heaters on for a few minutes to be extra sure, anyway you could try a quick fix depending on the size of the split which is a glue called stormsure (used on wetsuits etc) worked really well on mine kept water etc out for couple of months til I got mine sorted.
Depending on condition of your current hood either just replace the rear screen or you may have to opt for a new hood. Sure someone will be along with rough prices shortly
A hood trimmer should be able to swe in a new bit of PVC for under £100; it might not be as neat looking as original though. If you have an original factory roof, thats still in good order, you might be able to get a used rear section from Sam Goodwin. Aftermarket hoods aren’t compatable. If there are any splits in the binding over the doors, the hood is on the way out; stick on some clear repair tape, get some use out of the car, and save for a new hood. The roof will be down for most of the summer anyhow. Budget about £300 for a standard hood, supplied and fitted.
