TSI's are a want for me too.... Just trying to decide which ones to get.

I originally wanted a set with side lights because I like sidelights for some reason lol. But they only seem to come on the mesh type ones. I prefer the look of the ''open ones''

Nice looking car, I think you've helped me decide to get some tsi's. Are yours the moss ones?
Yeah mine are Moss.

Yeah annoying that the moss ones don't have side lights, but IMO they look far better than the mesh ones. I will probably mount a little LED of some sort behind the TSI's at some point, its too cold at the moment though!

quick update.. Got a replacement steering rack, pump etc fitted today by everything mx5, nice guys, got it done really quick and were very knowledgable when I had a few questions. Really need to get my other wheels and tyres on now as the tracking needs doing after having the rack off. Will probably go to WIM for a 4 wheel alignment.

Hey, nice seats. Did they fit straight onto the existing mk1 runners or did you have to buy or do anything else to make them fit? I was going to get Sparco Sprint 5 for my Marina blue mk1 but I like the look of your new seats also.

i've got them mounted on jb fab mounts. http://www.jb-fab.com/catalog3.html. they were a real bitch to mount them where I wanted them on the mount (all the way forward and as low as possible), I can see it being quite difficult to get them any further back than I have them as its so difficult to get under the back of the seat. I've got a mate with the same seats mounted on standard runners ( I don't know what modification it needs) which sit quite high compared to mine, just depends of what you're happy with height wise.

Got bored of the interior lights lighting up only my knee caps and using my phone to see inside the boot, so I installed some LED strips :D

Interior strips are wired into the standard interior light so they come on when opening the doors and can still be manually switched on and off.

I didn't fancy paying 30 odd quid for a boot light kit on mx5parts etc, so about £5 in parts from halfords later, I did this...

Also put some 1/10th scale versions of my wheels as my air vents! Probably one of my favourite mods i've ever done to a car!
