MX5 EUNOS ROADSTER (red), which was imported into this country in November 2003.
It was then owned by the garage owners daughter until May 2005, when it was bought by myself, for £2,700 (original bill present.
Mileage on car when it arrived in Britain was approx : 92281 kms . when I bought the vehicle the mileage was : 98158 kms.
The present mileage is : 110855 kms or 68882 miles.
This car was made in 1992, so it lived the first 12 years of its life in sunny Japan and has been in Merseyside ever since.
The log book says it has had 2 owners since coming to the UK, the first year owner was the garage owners daughter and it has been in my family ever since.
Car is in good condition for its age, not the usual rust bucket, drivers front wing was crumpled 4 years ago and has remained crumpled as I think it adds character! (have had quote for repair in, approx £100, for mend and re-spray).
Red paint polishes up quite well, but there is the odd age related blemish and scratch.
Roof is in reasonable condition except were some little angel stuck a knife in it (I have a large patch on this !) complete functional, but sure you could patch better !
Unusually the rear window is heated glass (most MK1's have a plastic window).
Inside the car, fairly good, decent remote stereo. momo leather steering wheel and all speakers have been renewed including those sexy little ones in the head-rests.
there is an after market strengthening bar behind the seats, going from one suspension turret to the other.
There is a similar strengthening suspension bar in the engine bay, both these greatly help the handing of the car, especially if you are thinking of using it on a track (We have used this at Alton Park, and the suspension is better than a standard mx5.
As with imports you have the benefit of electric windows, pss steering, air-con, etc etc ...
Boots in good condition, it houses the space-saver spare wheel, which is there along with the original tool-kit. boot mounted battery was renewed 2 years ago. there is a nice tonnau cover for when the roof is down.
wheels, tyres ok. engine is extremely clean and mechanically she has never given us any problem.
I have put her through 7 mot's and she has never failed once. currently the mot is out of date and she is on SORN . resting on our drive.
this is not a scrapper, this is not a donor vehicle, this is a car to take straight for an mot and to be taxed and used.
only ill health is now making a Sale
this is a nice little car that has been 100% reliable.
