  1. Newbies! Introduce yourselves here
    Hi All :) New to MX-5 ownership, am a little silver-haired, and looking forward to some driving fun! I've just bought a non-modified 1.6 2002 NB, and was wondering if anyone could point me to any topics suggesting some initial upgrades :D I'm spending a bit of money on it at the mo...

    Hi all. As part of my day job, we manufacture cables for bicycles / the occasional motorsport custom part. I was thinking, the window winder cables (from what I heard, i've not looked at mine) are galvanised and corrode/break over time. What would people think of a stainless / die drawn cable...

    Hi folks, I bought a cheeky set of hb4 (9006) LED bulbs for my mk2.5 NBFL dipped beam the other day, and fit them just now. Thought i'd give you all a little info. I haven't driven with them yet to see whether i'm blinding people but the main focus/shape of them seems unchanged to hopefully...
  4. Forced Induction & N/A Power Mods
    Hi Guys, my 1.6 eunos is soon to be turbo'd and im thinking it would be silly not to upgrade the brakes. Just wondering what everyone's running and what options are available without spending thousands of pounds? I'm more fond of the idea of getting a big brake kit for the front rather than...
  5. MX-5 / Roadster Forum
    I'm new to this forum so do please be kind, though i'm sure i don't have to ask as mx5 owners are usually very friendly. I have a 1996 NA MX5 1.6 litre 90bhp model. I understand that what decreased the 1.6 from it's original 115bhp to my 90bhp is the cams. I was curious and thought that here...
  6. Forced Induction & N/A Power Mods
    In the process of collecting parts for boosting, managed to pick myself up a TD04l-13T. Ill be aiming for around 240hp at the fly wheel, and a few friends suggested upgrading some of the gaskets which would be more comfortable coping with the added pressures that come with boosting. My question...
  7. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Hi, Looking to upgrade the fronts on my MK1, i was tempted by getting a Wilwood package (powerlite) see the ebay link below. I have 15" Japan Racing rims and don't want to sell them so want a brake kit that will fit under those. I'm just not sure the 1.8 caliper is worth the hassle...

    I find the sound quality on the standard Bose system pretty awful. I am thinking of a double din head unit replacement. I am trying to find out whether replacing the head unit alone will be an improvement and/or whether other components i.e. the amp and speakers will need to be changed. Any...
  9. MX-5 / Roadster Forum
    Recently the water pump went on my 1992 1.6 eunos, I stupidly decided to drive it home doing the drive for 5 minutes stop for 40 method. So there is a risk that damage has been caused to the engine. However, I purchased the car (nearly 18 months ago) with crank wobble, and I never imagined it...
  10. I.C.E
    Hey guys, I've recently acquired a cheap set of sparco sprints for my mk1, they were stupidly cheap and it would have been a shame to pass on them. However, I quite like having the headrest speakers in my original seats and don't really want to lose the functionality of having them. If anyone's...
  11. Mechanical & Electrical
    Hi everyone, As if I haven't just spent enough on the car and given myself a long enough list of jobs to get through, I've been umming and urring about doing a brake upgrade. Do I really need a brake upgrade? No. Am I running stock power? Yes. Can I lock the wheels in the dry? Yes. Do I only...
  12. Mechanical & Electrical
    Just wondering if anyone can tell me if you can get a LED bulb replacement for the rear number plate on the mk1/Na? And if so, where from?
  13. MX-5 / Roadster Forum
    This is not a For Sale/Wanted thread - Any responses along those lines WILL be ignored. Currently I have a 1.8 import in multi-coloured red/pink/peeling lacquer complete with the start of rusty arches. I'm after some guidance which way is better for me to go. I'm either considering fixing the...
  14. I.C.E
    Heyup, Looking for advice on upgrade options in my 2007 Sport, which will accommodate the following for iPhone 5's and onwards. Bluetooth calling, music streaming, charging, DVB, and a mic for the calling too. Looked at fascia's on mx5parts, and just don't have any idea where to start...
  15. General Car Chat
    I'm currently driving a 1995 UK model mx5 NA 1.6.. Don't get me wrong, I love this car to bits.. But I really am a fan of the unusual. And unusual is to me is the rotary engine! I don't think I'll be getting rid of the mx anytime soon, got plenty to do on it.. but the impracticality is what...

    Hi Guys, Some of you maybe already aware of QPS/Quality Part Solutions via eBay or Amazon or our new site which is nearly sorted at last! http://www.qualityparts-uk.co.uk/ We have been supplying de-cats for all MX-5 models for a few years now, we thought it maybe worth mentioning as part of...
  17. I.C.E
    I'm sure a guide like this has been posted before, but I thought I'd share my experiences with you. I decided to up grade my door speaker like a lot of people because the door speakers had been water damaged and the tweeter are just crap anyway. Before I go on please be aware that I'm an...
