Jobs done to date:Swansea roofNew tyres all roundNew discs and pads on the frontX2 servicesBush replacement in track rod endFull check underneath and clean up where required, thankfully it's really good underneath.So jobs for the future:New NSR wing - mine has a little corrosion and also quite a few scratches and little dings so if I can get a decent one used I will. Don't seem to have them new anymore, however, my brother is a painter in a body shop so will see if they can get any.New wheels - currently running on MX5 Sport wheels which came with the car and actually look decent but I'd like to go back to original ideallyPolish the headlights before winter Might look at some slightly lower springs when the suspension needs a refresh.I'd like some more power, I know that isn't the purpose of the car and it's all about handling but it could obviously manage more power. I'm not bothered about the 2zz really. Read a few turbo threads on here but there don't seem to be many around, do they all blow up? Then there is obviously the Audi 1.8 20v turbo swap that is around at the moment. Not sure how I feel about that though.That's us all up to date. Still love the car and whenever I'm just out with one of the children the request is always to take daddy's car with the roof down.

I think it is a reflection on how it has been looked after throughout it's life. My only concern regarding the mileage I do is that I'm only too aware that it's going to take its toll at some point.

Quote from: Mr220Mike on January 19, 2024, 21:06I was thinking today on my way to work, when my car was new a 21 year old car would have been from 1982. Can't think of a direct example to an MR2 from then,

I love going abroad and seeing old cars that you don't see here anymore.I was thinking today on my way to work, when my car was new a 21 year old car would have been from 1982. I can't think of a direct example to an MR2 from then, maybe an MGB, spitfire?? Both would have rusted by 1989 though. Always fancied a spitfire though or a GT6.
