I've wanted one for a while and 6 weeks ago picked one up. It's 2006 with 61,000 on the clock, full Mazda history and I gave £5250 for it at a used car dealer.

 

2.0 Sport with Bose and AC. The colour combo is very marmite. Some love it, some hate it. For me I love it and it also make sit feel different from driving MrsHorney's NC sport which is red with black interior.

 

Week one. A clena and a remap:

I quite like the colour combo also.

 

If you want something to tide you over until you get a different headunit I find the iPod adaptor works well with the stock headunit, if you get the right adaptor it charges your iPhone too. :)

Does the iPod adaptor work with the lightening connectors? I'm thinking of the Xcarlink Bluetooth box as an in-between solution.

I've got an old iPhone 4 that I use with an adaptor and it charges ok and works with sat-nav and audio.

 

I don't see why the lightning to 30 pin adaptor wouldn't work here, but I haven't tried it myself.

 

If I get the lightning to 30 pin adaptor I'll give it a go with a later iPhone and see if it works and charges also.

New Voodoo knob (2nd hand bargain). Gear change improved as the throw is now shorter and it's better weighted. Happy Horney.

Love the knob! :D I've been thinking about getting one myself.

 

Does the shifting feel any more notchy at all? They are a fair bit lighter than the OEM knob.

The shift feels much better to be honest. i think that's probably;y down to shorter throw than the weight difference.

Ok, that's it, I've gone and ordered a big black knob! :D

 

It seems everytime I come on this site I end up ordering something, it's not a Voodoo one but it's pretty similar. I'm quite interested to see the difference it makes :)

Update time:
 
it was running cool on long motorway runs and I thought the heaters were just not as good as the earlier cars. Some googling confirmed by theory, a common problem of the thermostat being stuck open. A new stat was ordered and and fitted. Easy job to swap, ball ache to bleed the bloody coolant. I did how to guide here: http://mighty5s.prob...hermostat-swap

I now have to do the same in MrsHorney's MK3 this weekend!
 
Next up www.fast5.co.uk had a Black Friday sale on. I'd already decided the Carbon Miata TRD spoiler was on my wish list and at half the price from one direct from Carbon Miata it was a no brainer.

Stuck on with 3m tape for now while I decided if I liked it or not. I do, Tiger seal ordered and I'll bond it on properly over the weekend.
 
That's it for now, next up some tint film for the lights and some ICE changes. Also what do we think about a colour for painting the calipers? Red would be too in your face but I'm thinking gold or yellow.
 
Answers on a postcard.

Like the colour combo on this car, the more common interior with black everything and piano black on the dashboard seems a bit gloomy at times! :)

 

The spoiler is awesome too but I guess you'd expect me to say that :D

 

Any more plans for it?
