Of course we are keeping them :ninja:

Along with the air from the tyres & the charge from the battery...will probably syphon out the fuel & screenwash too :lol:

Also have touch-up paint & laquer for the bodywork & wheels :unibrow:

Luuuurvly 8) Tbh there's not much I don't like,loving the brembo BBK and the Recaro's and I even like the wheels even though as you know Major I'm not usually a fan of black wheels.The one thing I don't like is the arch gap but that's easily solved.

I know new cars nowadays have to have a specific ride height,something to do with safety I'm guessing but like I said get a set of quality coilovers on her and she'll just look mean :twisted:

I could recommend a good set of spacers too as I know you're a huuuuuge fan :whistle: :whistle:

Did I mention the colour? Stunning 8)

Mark I have always had bikes my first was a Honda 500 four CB dunstal cafe racer that i still own which i bought when in northern Ireland on my 18th birthday I have had 22 bikes in all and now am able to return to riding once again ;) thing is I cannot store both and as the MX5 is fantastic fun and my weekend jolly ... it cannot deliver the thrill of a large 750 to 1000 cc bike but I would suggest you get the front end of the car covered with paint protection film and PPF & other parts with a ceramic coat for the rest just love the RF..... I am sure Mandy is going to love it and some of the upgrades Apple play and Mods4 with the one touch roof operation is worth looking into if the model dose not have it ......Leamington Mazda nice guys ;)

Bloody hell Tony. I worked with Paul Dunstall on the development of his fairings for the BMW 750 & 900, back in '77.

By the time the MX5 gets traded in October it will have done over 5 years with the factory fit tyres & brake pads :yeah: you must be doing something wrong :lol:

Front tyres still have 5mm of tread & the rears 4mm :p

I think for the RF with the black roof they took some styling queues from the owner's lifestyles.
