Ignorant? Oh yes!

Postby Kerrso » Fri Feb 15, 2008 9:27 am

Went to local garage last night to have a look at what they had - and bought an MX-5!!!
It's an 04 plate 1800cc, blue - and because I didn't have very much time, that's about all I know! No experience of the marque at all.
No doubt all the pooled experience of this forum will help me out... I hope so!
Anyway, nice to join all you people!

Welcome Kerrso, you must be a bit like me ie an impulse buyer. I bought my first 5 a 2003 Mk2 a couple of weeks ago.
What I can tell you about them is that they are great to drive and they look the biz. Enjoy. :wink:

Thanks for the welcome!
I'm sure I'll enjoy the car. Had a Saab convertible for years and loved it - right up to the bit where the ragtop motors and gearing started playing up and costing me £hundreds.
So MX-5 should be my ideal, I hope - open top driving which I love, plus the simplest drop top in the world!

Hi Alan (ahem), I mean Kerrso

Welcome to the forum - keep an eye on the North Scotland forums and events sections of this site and we'll try to get you out on a run.

BTW, you bear a startling resemblance to Basil Fawlty - wonder why that is! :wink:
Cheers

Sounds a familiar story - happened to me four years ago! Never regretted it since!

I'm in the club, so to speak. I went to my local Mazda garage which is managed by my ex- husband and asked him to find me a new car. I was admiring the MX5 in the showroom (nice colour, etc, etc) when he said the immortal words - "YOU can't have that..........." He is a very good salesman.
