Another Newbie!

Postby BigDex » Tue May 15, 2007 12:49 am

Just wanted to say a big hi to everyone on the forum. Pick up my first ever MX-5 on Thursday and it's like waiting for Santa. It's a 2000 on an X plate 1.8S. Will post a pic when i get it.

As i'm not in any way an expert can anyone tell me what difference the "S" makes and whether it has a ltd slip diff? Cheers.

PS... Don't think the wife's gonna see me for a few days...
