I'm thinking, for a number of reasons, of selling my MX-5. I haven't fallen out of love with it but running two cars is expensive and my wife hasn't got the confidence to drive it. Plus we have grandchildren and travel to stay with our daughter in Lincolnshire so it's not practical with luggage, wife and the dogs!!
I haven't put it up for sale but I'm looking for a feel of what people might be willing to pay including the 007 plate.
RC 2.0i Sport 2007 model (Heated seats etc.) http://www.mazda.co....ure_may2007.pdf
53,600 miles (less at the moment but rounded up to 53,600)
Clear wind blocker
brushed alloy handle strips and repeater surrounds (to match the roll bar covers)
Full service history, mostly by cheltenham dealer, tried another place once but went back to the dealer.
Recent new tyres
New Calipers, disks, pads on the front in March 2017
New Calipers, disks, pads on the rear around March 2016
New drop links early 2016
General age related scuffs and supermarket car park 'dings' but still looks good polished up.
Drivers door retaining bar bolt (on the car body side, not the door) broke and I have a bodged retaining bolt but it is temporary
Drivers seat is worn on the outside back support, I have a repair kit and will have a go at it this week to repair it as I haven't been able to find a replacement, heated, seat.
Photos enclosed of the door and seat plus it has the 'luxury' mats which even after 10 years are looking good - I haven't cleaned for these photos, taken on an impulse! If it does go on the market I would go through it like a dose of salts cleaning and polishing.
Apart from that it is mechanically excellent. I've always kept even the engine compartment clean and wiped over with polish so I'm not embarrassed to open the bonnet for viewing!
Any ideas? Offers? - With the registration I was hoping it would fetch me around £6,000 - thoughts?
I may decide not to sell, depends on what I might get for it but thought I'd let you enthusiasts know first.
Cheers and grateful for any advice
