  1. Fiver says Katie Price is the previous owner…..
  2. These two on eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/164272346459 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/263270703716
  3. These two are the kind of size / shape that appeals….
  4. Hi Lenny. I don’t want too OTT: in my own mind at least….. But the R wing is still quite subtle imo.
  5. Thankyou. Very nice as a duck tail they are too. But it’s a Wing or nothing for me. I think I’m going to go for it….
  6. Hello 🙂 Yes; i too am considering something more aggressive than the stock offering. But without going full ASBO / Boy-racer / ricer-look. My cars already fairly 'non standard'. So i don't have the whole 'residual / ongoing value of a completely stock car' argument to ponder over..... The one you've linked too is really nice. Another viable option. Thanks !
  7. Don't be shy. Time to confess..... Who's 'butchered' those timeless 987 lines and ruined them with the addition of a rear wing. Pretty sure now; i'm going for it at some point. So who's got what, from where and what have been your experiences on fit, quality etc ? Any pictures would be fantastic.
  8. I haven’t done them no…. Much appreciated info. Thankyou ! 🙏
  9. Thankyou. You’re 100% correct. In my haste to post and ‘get help’ I’ve incorrectly diagnosed. It was 100% Pink coolant…..🤨 Anywhere common to start looking. Leak / puddle was basically directly under front passenger wheel….. Cheers.
  10. Noticed what i presume is a condenser leak from my 987.1 this morning: on the garage floor.... My local mechanic could potentially do this job. Do people replace with genuine parts, or after market. Best place to purchase parts in the UK if after-market please ?
  11. Thanks Aaron. The place Ben suggested ‘Only does instrument clusters’ they’ve said 🙄 But I’m sure I can find somewhere local. Is this the kind of thing I’m looking for ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232382648580 I linked specifically to these ones because they come in different voltages; and I’m imagining with the wiring already attached - they could be swapped with originals… or perhaps installed using the original connections and ‘piggy backed’ ontop - if a straight swap looks difficult / the size isn’t the same etc etc. As opposed to the type below for example - where I’m imagining I’d perhaps need to replicate exact size, shape etc to marry up connections ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/263020022470 Cheers.
  12. Thats awesome info Ben. These look like the people I (we !) need. Second hand fascia’s making upward of £300. I’m imagining new could be double that easily. Quite steep for a ‘bulb’ in my case. It’s just so annoying. Everyone I’ve asked so far has said they would live with it. That’s not me… Ive just emailed with pics of car and climate fascia. And also the most interesting info I’ve found out so far. Feeling hopeful - Thankyou.
  13. They are only re-furbing two non related - and unlit with LED - buttons from what I can see / read on their website. And they ask that these alone are posted to them. So their involvement in anything else climate control fascia related appears to be nothing at face value. But I’ll email just in case… Only found out about this issue this morning. So it’s on the radar to ring a dealer as soon as soon as the Bank Hol is over.. Thanks again.
  14. Absolutely. Plenty of vids on YouTube for taking apart in reference to replacing the two switches that always wear. Was looking for any further info on the bulbs / switch etc so I could attempt to be pre-armed with parts. Looks like it’s in we go !
  15. Hmmm. Just seen they are in Poland 😳 And appear to paint your existing lower function buttons only - which always flake / peel on these cars. And which you can buy for £50 odd new these days…. I’ll do some research and see if someone local can craft in a new LED to the demister switch. **My climate fascia and all control buttons are immaculate. I literally need a new 10p bulb. And whatever it takes to achieve that of course…
  16. About to email them. Thanks very much for the suggestion….
  17. Hi guys n gals. The Light / bulb (LED ?) on the heated rear screen switch has died. Screen de-misting function still works perfectly. I’ve not seen individual switches for sale anywhere. Complete new fascia units seem like unobtanium. And scabby ones on eBay are making £200+ Anyone shed any light 🙄 on the bulb type, if they are replaceable, a specialist who I could send the unit / switch to for repair; or anything else to help light up my life once more…. Cheers. **Also: Is the heating function on a timer and automatically shuts off ? At the moment apart from the barely perceptible click of a relay - i can’t tell if it’s on or off 🙄
  18. I've been thinking of having my daily MX-5 Supercharged. Had a long chat with a guy last night; who i then discovered is in the process of developing a Twin Turbo kit for the 987. Infact by pure chance - i literally missed seeing his own '987 test car' at Hybrid Tune last weekend when i had my Geometry set-up. This car has been converted and is in for final tweaks and mapping. I'm told there is also another 987 either up and running; or about to be converted - in order to be run as a test mule; so that two cars are in parallel testing to iron out any and all potential issues. Final price is expected to be £6-6.5k fitted by himself at his new workshops. All that is required after that is an oil change and a remap. Martin Knuckles the 'designer' - from Woodbridge - has a long Motorsport history and a proven record of developing various parts for the supercharging / turbo'ing of MX5's in conjunction with G19 Engineering in Ipswich. MRN Race Technologies blog MRN Technologies Facebook page Interesting stuff; and i'm really impressed with the fine Engineering details that have been covered and thought about. Who's guinea pig ? 😄
  19. Looks a brilliant meet. And awesome pics Nick. A couple in particular are really outstanding......
  20. Right hand side (Off side / passenger) appear to be plentiful and cheap - £90 upwards new. The drivers side appears to be uncommon and expensive ! Unless this is the whole fog light for the drivers side: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264540719951 In which case - after an email to the seller to check - I’d snap it up ! Good luck to the OP.
  21. Craig: I bought some cheapies advertised as 6k ‘Bright white’. And a pair of these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264026610242 They are going in Tuesday along with a few other bits. Ill get before and after pics buddy and let you know which ones worked out 👍
  22. Bosch S5 Heavy Duty here. Fits fine, better specs than standard and a tiny bit over £80 for trusted quality 👍 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272720481115
  23. 987 - Gen1: In the fog / spots - there is the main bulb.......and below that right at the bottom - a "running light" (?) Seem's i've changed every bulb apart from these - and i noticed how yellow they were this morning. Anyone know they type of bulb these are so i can get some ordered ?
  24. I had 5's on a previous car and loved them. Very impressive grip / feedback (Wet especially), noise levels; and wear rates. If the 6's are a further improvement over the 5's......which i'm sure they are......you'll absolutely love them !
