    I recently bought a 2001 (Y reg) mk2. It test drove fine, then once I bought it, I drove it the 25 miles it took to get home. Some of it reasonably enthusiastically.

If I reach up towards the transmission tunnel/bulkhead there's what feels like a small hole, and...

When the car is fully up to temperature the needle on the temp gauge sits around 11 o'clock however if the engine is...

    Hi, I have noticed that the centre console on my MX5 MK2.5 gets warm. It is not blisteringly hot, but warm enough. The leather gaiter around the gear stick is warm and the side of leather seat gets warm near the seatbelt socket where the side of the leather seat touches the side of the centre...
