  1. MX-5 / Roadster Forum
    From Friday I will be the proud owner of a 2016 MX-5 2L manual with just 20K on the clock. I am excited! This followed 6 months of watching YouTube, reading reviews, test driving a Stage 1 BBR RF (I am too tall). I intend to use her as a daily driver (London based :-( ) with regular trips to...
  2. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Been an age since I last posted, please forgive me, I have been in an out of hospital (even had a stroke in my eye to add to the other two strokes I have had!!!) Anyway, that's enough whingeing from me, I am coming to the end of my first year of ownership of my third 5. MOT due on the 28th...

    Howdy folks... my first post so apologies if this aint the best place to post it. I'm after some help establishing how much my car was lowered by it's previous owner / what the springs are? Ideally without taking them off! The ride is a little splashy, I live in London with loads of speed...
  4. Mechanical & Electrical
    Hi all, Had my MOT recently, she passed with one advisory - rear right coil spring is corroded. It's one of the original types prone to rotting/snapping/getting old. Anyway instead of being a bit dull and just replacing them with standard ones across the axle (and remaining sat in the air) I...
  5. How do I...

And I'm looking for the advice of your good selves as to what decisions to make, this is my first time modifying a car for my own use so I'd like some words of wisdom from those with experience. So far my plan is as follows, any guidance as to...

    Hello all, i am thinking about lowering my stock mx5 MK 3.7 sport graphite 1.8 with stock 17inch wheels. I wan't to install 30mm lowering springs and 20mm bolt on spacers so i don't have to cut the OEM studs, Has anyone tried this combination and will my wheels rub with out rolling the fenders...
  7. Your driving stories
    Sorry to hear more about unexpected handling problems with the MX5. We bought a 93 MK1. It looked great but I didn't give it much of a look over underneath. Within a very short time of owning it, my wife was driving round a roundabout when it unexpectedly tried to swap ends, luckily she...
  8. Members Rides
    MK2.5 Sport (so already comes with upgraded Bilstein shocks from factory), now lowered 35mm using H&R 35mm Lowering Springs. Thought I'd put it on here because I couldn't find many pictures/ much help before buying my springs. Although not 'low', its low enough to look a lot better and still...
  9. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Hi chaps, Just bought my very first mx5 (mk1 1.6) and I need a few thoughts on what to do with the suspension...the car is on 15" rims and looks, well like a 4x4. The roll isn't too bad but it could really do with coming down an inch or 4. I'm a skint student so I'm toying with the option of...
  10. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Hi everyone, I have just purchased my first MX5 and I am looking to change the suspension as I have no evidence in the service history that it has been changed in the past (apart from a snapped spring in 2008). I also thought about lowering the car slightly to give a more 'sporty' look and...
  11. Exterior
    I have a Mk3 hardtop convertible, Standard springs and it sits fairly high, It would probably be at home on an off road rally course. Is it worth upgrading and lowering the springs by 30mm or even more? I know this is a fairly common mod on the Nc but what would be a rough cost of having them...
  12. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    I have already Bilstein shocks and looking to lower the ride height. I don't want to spend over £300. which would you recommend and if coilovers what brand is best?
  13. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Hello, Just wondering if anyone on here has recently lowered their mx5 and has the original springs they took off Lying about the place? Lookin to buy a pair of front springs, ours failed mot at the weekend and just wanting to save myself a few quid! Happy to pay whatever the postage may be...
  14. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Hey Nuttzers. So, I'm thinking that if the 5 passes its MOT without chassis and sill incidents, I might just treat it to some lowering. Thing is, will 2001-spec, S-VT dampers (on 95,000 miles) be able to hack suddenly losing a 10/20/30mm of travel? I say S-VT dampers because I can't tell if...
  15. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Hi all, I'm new to this forum so bare with me! I'm picking up my first MX5 on Saturday and wanting to lower it with some Eibach springs by 30mm. Will the standard shocks be able to cope bearing in mind I'm not going to be using it for track days and only as a everyday car for getting to work...
  16. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Hi everyone, Quick post, car failed its MOT today on a broken road spring. Knew something was wrong but never had the time to investigate/sort it out. The quotes coming through for the replacement of the front o/s spring is higher than I expected. What would people expect to pay for this job...
