Hello from Ayrshire....

Postby Geo-tc » Thu Oct 02, 2014 6:08 pm

Hi, just got my first MX 5, I was looking for a decent Mk1, and came across a Mk3 at decent money, needs some minor work, but im looking forward to working on it and driving it.

I would like to learn a bit about the do's and dont's of this wicked little car. So this looked like a good place to start, i have been digging around the forum, and already found some great information, so thought i would say hello, and thanks, as i will probably hang about a bit,..if thats alright ").

I got into the soft top driving experience last year when my daughter asked for an " open shut car " (shes only 6) i bought a MG TF, and now have the soft top bug.

So hello from Ayrshire.

Welcome to the forum Geo.

Yes a very nice Mk1 can cost as much as an early MK3.

You will enjoy the car but if it is a keeper get it undersealed as there are large untreated areas underneath.
