There isn't a separate Scotland Owners Club - join the UK club (http://www.mx5oc.co.uk) and you'll be part of MX5 Scotland as a result. Hope that makes sense.

No need to wait! We had a new year run today - 70+ miles, roof down all the way. Just turn up the heater and put on a silly hat.

Sorry to hear about the vandalism !!!!!! Outragous :x

Prev owner not having you on, as such......when I had a Mk2.5,
it did say in the owners manual not to lower roof in cold temps......
but you'll get to know the car and you'll establish what your comfortable with.

I would never say it would'nt damage roof, cos then you'll run out today - put the roof down and it'll come away in your hand, or something.....

But i've never heard anybody say they've had problems due to this - and I never have.

Hi Stevie ... and welcome to the forum.

In addition to what else has been said by much more knowledgeable folk than me, this topic comes up quite regularly. The theory is that, if you keep your car out in the cold, the softtop will crack when you try to fold it down.

However, driving for a short time should warm it enough to prevent that problem.
Cheers
