Decided to show some love to the latest workhorse by giving her a good scrub inside and out!
Whats extras did you get?
That's lovely. I miss my old MX5.
Besides the obvious.......
Dammit, got my hopes up for some BL loveliness!
Welcome to the club. I'm on my second and wouldn't have anything else.
Japfest I presume?
EDIT: On second thoughts, looks like it isn't.
Did the Porc in the background give it away?
It was the Bromley Pageant this year. Haven't done Japfest yet.
too many to list & Doors lol
Mini Cooper S 2.0l Petrol-turbo, Electric blue metalic
Mini John Cooper Works sports kit & roof spoiler (exterior/exhaust & 17" wheels)
Mini John Cooper Works leather interior & M-F steering wheel
Interior & Exterior LED lights pack / LED fogs/Headlights etc
Parking sensors & cameras
Mini connect & nav system, visual boost etc
Mini driving modes/ excitement pack.
Still playing with the "mini-iDrive" settings, but a good upgrade from the old "05" 3dr cooper I had before.
Fitted new headlights today.
New (to me) seats and mats (from a G Limited) plus LED interior lighting.
been looking at getting an MX5 MK1, whats it like on fuel and what have costs been like for replacing parts using decent manufactures? getting bored of my 1.8T golf now
Parts are fairly cheap and plentiful, lots of choice too. The cars are very reliable.
Fuel though. Well I tend to average around the 25mpg mark but then I do drive enthusiastically. I have managed 36mpg on a run to Bournemouth and back.
With the better weather, time for a bit of work on the track car. First track day on the 20th April.
Full service, oil change, new plugs, new battery. Add new intercooler, 4 new slicks, pads, etc etc.
Not the best then, I average 25-30 driving at good speeds, around 40 when I take my time on duals/motorways
Just purchased a new (second hand) car for myself. Porsche Cayman 3.4S manual 6speed in Cobalt blue with all of the upgrades you could want for comfort
It will ultimately replace my Civic which loves money being spent on it but im growing up so that will be the go to car from here on
Project cars in the future may include a mk2 Mazda MX5 just to keep the tinkering side of me happy and the Porsche working
First years ownership done and dusted, easiest year of car ownership I have ever had
Didn't enjoy giving the dealer £150 for its first service though, usually do all that myself lol
Well jell. Pretty sure that's just the car that I would have for a weekend car, if I could only justify a weekend car :/
I thought you were being exceptionally clever, and I liked it, until I realised that wasn't a Duster :/
I don't drive so these.
Nope not clever but I would quite like a duster, I like the new facelift one. Maybe a trade in
