Not to be outdone by the Rover, the MX5 got some time spent on it too
As part of my usual “new car” base-line servicing, I changed the oil in the MX5 the other day.
It’s no surprise I didn’t like the fancy wheels on the MX5 when I got it, so off they came.
Slowly but surely I’m crossing things off the list of stuff to fix. Today I got stuck in and hid the sharp stabby thing that calls its self the driver’s door.
The more I dig into the work done on this car, the more I question the sanity and abilities of anyone that has touched it in the past.
I know the whole game with a soft top car is to have the top down all the time, but having the roof come unlatched when going over bumps is just one step too far.
Well I guess this will set the tone for the rest of what I will find in the car.
I’ll blame watching far too much Wheeler Dealers for this one.
Finally hit a major milestone in the Roadster today. 200,000km.
Still running fantastic, no signs of any issues and has aged really well. Goes to show how little mileage actually matters.
On another note, the cleaned leather looks and feels great now too. The steering wheel is really nice to hold, and doesn’t leave my hands feeling gross after use.
