    ...Any mx5 activity on here?



    I'm just about to fit a set of 'Big Brakes'(off a 2.5 Sport), to my 'W'(2000) 'Classic Red' mk2 1.8 ...Just recon work on all the

    callipers, New 270mm Blind-Drilled/Grooved Discs up front, with 276mm Discs Rear - Green-Stuff Pads

    and Stainless Hoses, all round...



    I've also fitted a hard-top, which makes it more comforting in the winter!


    I recently acquired a pair of seats/door cards, a Nardi Leather wheel, and Style bar, from a Phoenix...

    At the moment, the seats are with the upholsterer, for a set of IL black leather covers to be fitted...



    ...And I Finally fitted a Front Strut-Top Brace...

    Hey, nice to meet you. Sounds like you have awesome plans for your car. I love the MX5's they are great fun cars to drive.

    Did you have trouble with your roof leaking? It seems to be a common problem I'd be curious to know how long a roof lasts on the MX5 on average.

    Don't expect fast or loads of replies on here, most of the activity goes in the general car forums nowadays, the makes and models forums are for more of an archive. It means people can find the information they need and it doesn't get buried under loads of chat and my car's better than yours debates you get on lots of single make forums. ;)

    Hi there...Thanks...When you say roof, do you mean soft top, or hard top?

    My mans mx5 is a 2003 model and the roof seems to still be fine. Not leaking, maybe a touch grubby though :p
