Hi folks, I've just registered on MX5OC and came across to this site.

I'm Matt, just bought a 1997 Monza at the weekend. I'm quite happy with it, just need to replace the rear lights for standards and replace the rear shocks - thought I might look at getting an uprated shock and spring set.

I had a MK2 1.8 a couple of years ago, but I ruined it unfortunately when I was young and silly.

Welcome to the forum Matt.

Just drive the car for a month or two before making any modifications.

Exactly what is wrong with the existing springs and shocks on the car or are you one of these people who must change something.

Hi Eddie,

Nothing wrong with the front shocks or any of the springs, its the two rear shocks that need replaced. And the rear lights aren't my taste so they'll be going back to standard.

That would be great, however I'm down in Wales that weekend visiting the family - I'll try and get the another one.

Thanks for the warm welcome folks.

I've finally paid for my membership on MX5oc, I assume this makes me a member on here too?

It does, send a PM to IanN and he will verify your membership and you'll get the logo by your name.
