Re: After market alarm

It’s a really difficult problem, isn’t it? That’s why in the end I went for the second alarm. It’s got proximity sensors, which initially send out a warning ‘blip, Blip’ sound, and a couple of ‘Viper’ lights which flash away like a Christmas tree all the time when it’s parked. If they ignore that, a...

Re: After market alarm

The cat was cut off, but cut off after the flanges at either end, and they carefully unplugged the sensors rather than just ripping the wiring out. So the Mazda dealer said it appeared to be a steal-to-order job, as the cat and sensors had been taken in a fully reusable state. Have you had a similar...

Re: COME ON THE R3's

Fab-u-lous, and v nicely lowered if you don’t mind my saying so 👍. White (IMHO) works so well for the R3

Re: Advice on wheel colour

That is distinctly lairyer, isn’t it?

I can imagine the bronze (as in the version in the pix of your car) also works particularly well with red (or black?) bodywork! 👍🏻

Re: Advice on wheel colour

Sparkle sounds like it might well work, thanks, and should add a bit more light into the (IMHO) sometimes over-dark wheel arch.

Thought I should have added a picture that showed more of the current wheel colour, so update attached.

Re: Advice on wheel colour

Hi, very much appreciate your input. I’d have to say, they do look really good 👍🏻 ... and I never would have thought bronze would have worked. ... Though having said that, didn’t the Spirit R maybe have bronze wheels (of the v nicely subtle kind)? Or am I confusing it with the Circuit Trial edition,...

Advice on wheel colour

Hi, it’s coming up to time to get my Ultralegerra’s refurbished, and I’m kind of torn between staying the same colour and going silver. My thought is that the bigger disks and callipers in shiny black might contrast nicely with silver wheels? Or would it look too much like an old fashioned silver cr...

Re: R3 Suspension - springs vs coilovers

Hi, that’s a lovely looking car you’ve got. If not already covered in previous thinking, one other area perhaps to consider is what type of car you’re aiming for. I had a series 1 and have driven that to Salzburg, and that was a reasonably relaxing ride, even full chat on the Autobahn. I then bought...

Re: COME ON THE R3's

The white R3 IMHO looks fab, as instead of the play of light across the sensuous curves and creases you tend to get with some colours, the white seems to focus the eye on the contrast between the body and the cutouts. And you appear to have aimed to maximise that effect via darkened Windows, wheels,...

Thanks for clarifying Mark. 👍🏻 I must say / repeat that version of the MX5 you have is a real peach, isn’t it?

Also top suggestion thanks Paul re the Waxoyl... one can (almost) never have too much IMHO 😁

Re: Whilst I may have (metaphorically) Taken a bullet, I think I dodged the bomb

Hi Ian, I think I really was! 🤔 I would have done the RB ones if I could have got to RR, but seems not so much of an option at a main dealer. Still, and to be fair I guess, they’ve lasted 10 years so if a new set do the same I suppose I can’t complain too much? It could have been so much worse if it...

Whilst I may have (metaphorically) Taken a bullet, I think I dodged the bomb

I had to travel to Swindon and back over the weekend, so got up at 2:30AM and had a brilliant drive down - zero traffic = v good progress ;) - and was back home in Newark by about 9:30 am same day. When I was about half a mile from home, my oil warning light flashed a couple of times, went solid for...

Glad that wasn’t just me wondering what I was missing. 😄 Though have to admit, while I’m an avid photographer I’ve never quite developed the same interest in video, so this could be like saying to an audiophile their system doesn’t sound any better with that £2,000 silver arm cable, when they clearl...
