Re: Peters poorly pride and joy

Pete is a real MX5/Roadster enthusiast and as such owns all version of the car. He's also incredibly unlucky with his cars which suffer from just about every ailment we have come across (and a few we haven't - yet). With your help we can keep all his cars on the road and the smile on his face so please come in and see if you can help.

Had a visit from Pete earlier poor bug..r has another problem, he went shopping with Mrs Pete and while she was gone doing the retail therapy bit he sat in his five listening to his favorite radio cd. Mrs P came back and would you believe it the Five would hardly start when it did it was all no go and certainly no play. Any ideas guys

He certainly did while listening to the radio put the Ignition on without the engine running and burnt out the coil packs.
