Hi Folks

I have just joined the MX-5 Club and three weeks ago bought my very first Mk2.5 MX 5.

I have really enjoyed my tail end of the summer fun with the roof down and can't wait until next Spring to do more. I suppose nothing to stop me doing in the winter but I do hate the cold!!

I look forward to meeting members of the club over the next year and learning more about what is turning out to be a very very good buy.

For now

Bye

Marcus

Hi and welcome.
Don't worry about the winter, some of the best 'top down' days are on a frosty day in winter sun. Invest in a woolly hat, dont let the heater melt your shoes and enjoy it.

Marcus,
As the old saying goes 'there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes' :-)

The top down in winter in easily cured by a fleece, gloves and the heater aimed at your feet :-)

Enjoy the 5 all year round 8)
Drop the hood and let the world in 8-)

Agree with all above have had some of my best top down drives on a crisp autumn/winters morning.

Also new - returning to the fold after 2 yrs of non ownership.

Everyone is great on here so i am sure you will enjoy!

Welcome, just along the road from you. I can echo what has been said about the winter driving, for me top down all year. Just wrap up. And I mean that in the best possible taste. :lol:

Hi folks thanks for the warm welcome to the club, and I look forward to meeting you at some point over the coming year. I am working on getting some images up but seem to be having technical or mental issues!!!

All the best folks
