Mk 3.5 the 3 year school report
Mar 22 2012
Our TRUE RED 3.5 is going in for her 3 year service tomorrow, wonder if there will be any issues? tempting fate but don't think so!
Ours was probably one of if not the first 3.5 on UK roads back in April 2009
Just over 25k miles up now, and she is still performing absolutley beautifully not a single niggle that we have noticed, OK I just replaced all 4 tyres, they were not totally shot but the handling was beginning to feel a little dead and interestingly all 4 corners wore out pretty much together with fairly common wear patterns.....maybe an indication of 50/50 MX-5 weight balance? Went for Toyo TR-1's and I must admit the car has certianly come 'alive' again.
Ours isn't wimmed or lowered just totally stock and in my opinion it handles just superbly, although I have never driven a mk3 so nothing to compare it with, seems just fine as it is to me
What would I change NOTHING what would I wish for NOTHING what needs fixing NOTHING (that we can tell anyway!) just really superb!
Given her a really good visual inspection to see if anything needs WARRANTY attention and NOTHING even the notorious alloys are blemish free, she's kept outside and has driven on treated roads
So 10/10 Excellent Performance from me then!
So after tomorrow's Service, we are off for our first sunny weekend away in Aldeburgh
Not enough piccies on the forum i.m.o so here's one from a Donegal Ireland trip HAPPY 2012 MXING!
