New Boy

Postby kpdornan » Sat Jun 18, 2016 7:17 am

Hi Everyone,

recently bought my first MX5 and loving it after a short affair with a MR2, and totally loving the car

I have a 2003 1.8 svt in black and I live just outside Dundee in Tayport.

Seems like a great site to get lots of advice and help which believe me I will probably need!!

thanks

Kevin

It was missing the ] from the end of the [\IMG] tag so that's why it wasn't showing.

car going well.

new exhaust just fitted which makes a big difference.

Some underseal work & gearbox oil change done courtesy of Eddie.

Its my daily car so seems like I have a huge list of things to get done but all part of the fun of owing one I guess

Kevin,
Did you get my PM reply?

Hi,

notification on email but nothing showing as a new message on here until you actually go into the messages, most strange.

Received reply and thanks for the info.

kind regards
