Hi there! Just got myself an 2006 Mk3 2.0L Sport with the tin top roof. Previous was a Mini Cooper S so looking forward to seeing the difference and enjoying the lack of roof.

 

Knowledge of improving cars is limited but looking to learn more and will definitely be checking out any info on exhausts, lowering and acquiring a spare key.

Welcome, Frank.

 

I sincerely hope you enjoy your MX-5.

 

Remember to remove the roof as often as possible. I only drove with the roof up when it was raining heavily and I couldn't go over 50 miles an hour.

Hi Franko....

 

Welcome to the 'Life' madhouse... err, sorry forum I mean!  :giggle:

 

As others have said, it's compulsory to get the roof down whatever the weather, and the PRHT (power retractable hard top) is a nice addition.....don't worry about the 'Tin top', it isn't one..

It's a much stronger lightweight composite construction....But salesmen/reviewers don't know any different!....

 

Have fun & come back to tell us how you're getting on!

Welcome Franco, you’ve made a great choice buying an mx5, then again I might be a tiny bit biased. Enjoy!
