Hi All

I did a search and couldnt find anything like this..... 

I've seen this kind of threads on other car forums and it can make intresting reading once members get a feel for it - its just a bit of fun

So.....I thought I would start this thread to see what people have done to thier MX5's

OK hope you get the idea......I will start:

Today:

Had a look through the MX5 Parts.co.uk catalogue for blingy engine chrome bits.....

 Two weeks ago my wife's Merc burst into flames for no obvious reason and burnt out my beloved 5 parked next to it. Today I accepted the insurance company's offer which means I'm going shopping at the week-end - for another 5 of course.

You should have asked me this question last Tuesday and I would have said 'wrote of my 5'Cry

If you'd asked me the question on the Wednesday i'd have said 'I bought another one' Big Smile (courtesy of two generous sons)

Waving hi all

I've had a busy day with the roadster... Ordered new speakers off ebay, changed a bulb on the side light to get it through its MOT, took it for its MOT but it failed on a steering gaiter and imbalanced brakes. Ah well - couldve been worse not too expensive - so she's being retested on Monday. I enjoyed blasting the cobwebs out on the way to the MOT (was worried about emissions and it seemed to do the trick!!)

 So far today - put the battery on charge after leaving the lights on yesterday then coming out at 4:30 to find she wouldn't start. Finally left work at 5 once I'd found some jump leads and someone willing to get me started.

Once the battery has had a few hours (and the sun melts the ice) I'm going to pull down the drive into the sunshine, then it's the first bath of 2011.
