Price sounds good to me, but as long as YOU'RE happy then that's all that matters!!

You probably got it in the best colour too :D

Shame about the colour but never mind :-)
Hope you enjoy it.

As Si said...hood down motoring is best.
I shall have to put my wet suit on up here today, but if I go out to play it will still be hood down. LOL

I have a few MX5's ALL with the stick aerials fitted.
Try removing it if you live in a dodgy area and puting it in the boot.

Nothing to go wrong with the manual ones :-)
They are also GREAT for clearing the drains in the bodywork :-)
I have never fitted an electric one, nor would I wish to.

I am sure someone will tell you who and the problems you may encounter....but for...how much ?? ?40 ??? I would sooner take mine off and replace them when I want them :-)
Then use that ?40 towards making the car go FASTER ! ha haaaaaaa

OK Lass.

When you have got it out....give the threads a coat of oil, and then you can put it in and out with ease and it needs to be only hand tightened :-)

Now I have save you ?40 / ?50....where do I send my bill too ?
Ha haaaaaaaaaaaaa :wink:

Mack,

You mean to say...your car is capable of going even faster than it already can?? :shock:

Kristoff.
Not sure if it CAN go any faster, and as I am "frowned" upon for discussing speeds I CANNOT SAY either....LOL

Ask me again .......... after the Greddy E-manage system with all the harnesses are fitted in the next few weeks, along with the Water / Methanol injection gear if I have the time :-)

I seriously think that THAT will be my limit on the Greddy. I think I will have taken her as far as I can and dare to by then.
Soooooooooooooo ... I am now planning my next wee venture :roll:
As I have already got some of what I require........
I may even start it this winter for something to keep me busy.

Think of my wee White Roadster.
Think of a Rover V8 engine. Bit bigger than a 3.5 lt of course :-)
Thnk of a different gear box / axle / diff and other running gear..............Think ...think...think :-)

It HAS been done, just not be me to mine ........... yet :twisted:

Mack,

Your ingenuity knows no bounds! :wink:

My son wants me to take the VR6 engine out my VW Sharan and plonk it in the Roadster but my idea of a mod is to change a disk in the CD player!
