Hi all,

In the past week I've popped my MX5 cherry and become the very happy owner of a 2005 1.8.

It's in decent shape overall minus some cosmetic issues. I've changed the plugs, oil and filter so far and put new disks and pads on it, just a binding rear caliper to sort and then it's good to go. Then I might start making some subtle mods, not sure what yet though, suggestions welcome.

i don't see fog lights so I'd say it's a standard Mk2.5 1.8i unless it's a special edition of some sort (there are probably more specials than standard models LOL).

Welcome, I do think the 2.5 is the sexiest shaped model!
