    NB8B MX5 wanted

    Chaps,

    NB8B MX5 wanted in VIC.

    Stock, Silver, unfucked roof and less than 150,000km would be perfect.

    The cash is burning a hole in my pocket.

    There are plenty around. Gumtree, Facebook MX5 for sale, MX5 Forum, etc. And don't be put off by km's, mine often have well over 200,000km's when I get them. Just go by condition, and if it looks like it's been serviced and looked after.
    $5-$7k should get you something ok. My silver one cost about $4500, and the black one $3300, but it needed spark plugs and the Uni joint was shagged on the tailshaft. Cost me $100 to fix.
    A friend has an SE that he might be selling soon. But that would be $10k or more. It's silver.
    NA8B 89KW- P.I. 1:50.1, WNTN1:38.0, SDWN 1:27.6, WKFLD 1:10.4
    NB8B 181KW- P.I 1:43.8, WNTN 1:32.9, SDWN 1:22.0, BDFD 1:05.3

    There usually are - except right now! One blue one and one black one which are two colours I don't want! Plenty of silver ones around in the past but now when I'm looking to buy!

    Silver SE would be nice

    Turbo eventually Marty but I want that to be a project I do. Red one from the Turbo V's Supercharged Ep?

    Thanks for that, and while a silver SE would be nice, budget is a bit less than those cars.
