It's not for me :P The missus wants ot sell her ST191 auto and get an MX5. Why would I try and change her mind? Test drove a couple here, and to be honest, I'd own one.

Thanks, but would prefer someone I know a bit about and not inadvertently get a mate of the owner to check it :wink:
But will consider that if no other option

If you get stuck I can probably have a look. I'm no MX5 expert but I'm a mechanic so have a general idea of what to look for.

No idea. Sub 5k is the budget. Must be manual and mint. That's the conditions so far

Should be pretty easy to get a good NA for that price.
I got mine for a steal with 162,000k's on it for $2700, only needed a new soft top fitted which it came with. :D

They are addictive to mod though. So maybe factor in that :lol:

Heaps in the NI, not so many in the SI.
A lot of people want far too much for them. Several at or over 5k and needing clutchs etc :?
