    Another MX5: The lightyear clone, much less carbon and much more derp

    Ok so this was completely out of the blue, totally unexpected, still not sure what ive done.

    Got married last Saturday, been hanging out at home waiting to leave for the honeymoon.

    get on scumtree as you do see whats going.

    found an mx5 with a turbo for sale, didnt think much of it, add was vague, it was a 2000 model, thought it had a 5 speed and not much else so ignored it.

    thought fuck it contacted the guy for a chat see what the go was.

    oh shit aye its a NB8B2 with a 6 speed
    oh shit aye 6 months rego
    oh shit aye brown davis roll bar
    oh shit aye avo turbo kit, adaptronic ecu, wideband all that
    oh shit aye coilovers
    oh shit aye bigger radiator
    oh shit aye new clutch
    oh shit aye new tyres
    oh shit aye new timing belt

          Nine? That's good value. You could return to stock and get $9,000.

                I reckon I've seen this kicking around my area. Nice car if so.

                              few pics some edo spec

                              nothing else to report other than wanting to get new brake lines, pads and possibly rotors onto it and give it a good service

                              then will source a clutch LSD for it as it currently has a 5spd open in it and the original diff is sitting on my shed floor with the spider gears welded up.
