I always thought if reversing lights were fitted they had to work ... so how do you get a WOF if they don't work? Must have a very friendly garage :D

G'day Gerry, We've got a '91 car and could be starters for your items below. However we're not familiar with either book, so wonder if you could comment please on whether they've got plenty of useful info for low-budget home-mechanics, and whether the performance book is all MX5 or is more general, ...

Yes zorruno you have done a great job and I know the majority of MX5 List

Take a bow and put your feet up... you've earned it!

Exhaust whistle and rough idling when cold

After all this, go for a long drive periodically slowing down, selecting second gear and taking it to the redline (on a quiet section of 100k open road) several times.

He doesn't like to be ignored...
Sorry, this group is "inert" when it even comes to a petrol company reducing
the Fly-buy points they can earn! I had more "well done" responses from people
overseas than from this list..

So why don't we all "not respond" to the PITA and maybe he'll go away

Broken External Door Mirror Needed

Obviously the mirror internals are a bit of a weak point. I have also had one
snap off..then looking at the other to see if it could be
lubricated...promptly snapped that one too. Ross at MX5 can sell you new
mirrors or repair the old ones for you at a very reasonable price...
