    TurnerGuy – made me laugh 🙂

    MLC – that’s about what we’re looking for. I do like the folding roof on yours. Looks like a good price as well, can I ask you the mileage on it?

    68000 miles, two owners, FMSH. Mazda has a good service history database you can access if paper docs aren’t with a car, but mine had every scrap and receipt.

    Can you fit the equivalent of a works components angle headset to slacken it off???

    😆 I mean its something to respect on damp roads.

    I know what would happen, I’d go shopping looking at all the above suspects and..

    I’d comeback with another mk2.5. Slower than probably all the above but **** me its amazing fun.

    I still remember the foggy nights driving with the roof down, the roof down at night on the motorway. The best time to drive such a car with the roof down is at night or in fog IMO.

    When sunny you’d be baked alive.

    Thanks MLC. Gives me something to work on. I do like the idea of the retractable roof. Less of them tho.

    Hora – you’re a strange one 🙂

    Try it, you feel the swirl, the darkness is inky and seems to be on your shoulders/all around you. Its eery- almost like a night ride 8)

    The fog feels like you are in a 70’s horror film

    For trundling to the pub with the top down and the Mrs in tow you want noise and low down grunt, S2000 is great but it’s fun in a throw it around way that doesn’t endear you to anyone but yourself and other teenage boys/middle aged men.

    Something that makes a great noise, mileage is low so fuel consumption barely an issue. The Jags with a straight pipe at the back sound INCREDIBLE, chap on my road has one. Anything else V8 would be good. Any new shape mustangs in budget yet? Z4 with a decent exhaust another good call..

    @mlc – I have to say that’s a nice car especially with the retractable roof

    I would say noise and grunt won’t endear you to the Mrs in that situation either. Being driven fast as a passenger is not really fun no matter what the car, nor is going fast with the top down.

    In that scenario all you need is no roof and no kids in the back 🙂
