Eunos Roadster 1.8i






This car is on sale on behalf of a Newera Imports friend and long term customer. If you're after a truly MINT MX-5, then don't miss this example. It's superbly looked after!

1996 N' registered Eunos Roadster S-special 1.8 in Classic red.121,655 kilometers(75,609 miles) This car has been lovingly looked after by it's current enthusiast owner who is selling due to having bought an E36 BMW M3. Standard equipment features air conditioning, electric windows, PAS. A UK spec Panasonic CD head unit and Cat 2 UK immobilser are fitted. The engine is completely standard and has no aftermarket modifications fitted. Cambelt was changed at 60,000 miles.A new hood with zip out rear screen has also been recently fitted. The current and only one UK owner has purely concentrated purely on enhancing the drive and safety of the worlds best selling sports car! The current owner has also owned an RX-7anhd Skyline GTR (Also supplied by ourselves) and informs us that this little car has the most beautifully balanced chassis of all the cars he's owned. Condition is excellent, having been polished to perfection on a regular basis, the front nose cone has some light scratches to the lower edge, but these are not noticable unless bending down and doors have some minor pin dents, overall a very well looked after car that's had money no object maintanance, viewing is highly recommended.

Performance equipment
The original spec Bilstein dampers were found to be too hard for UK roads so the suspension has been recently changed to Koni sport dampers all round with Eibach sport springs. These are top adjustable and allow the driver to fine tune the handling to suit his/her driving style and road conditions.The car also benefits from having had a proper 4 wheel alignment session at Wheels-in-motion,as recommended by the MX5 owners club. This cost £100.00 but completely transforms the handling. Four brand new Mazda brake discs were renewed at the same time, brake pads where changed to Axxis ultimate pads which offer much greater stopping power. Brake fluid was replaced with Motul RBF600. Wheels are Azev 7X15 et35 with 205/50 VR15 tyres. These wheels have been professionally refurbished so are in as new condition, Tyres are Toyo Proxes T1-R's with plenty of tread left. A Harddog roll bar has also been added for safety,please do not confuse this with cheap 'style bars' often seen on MX5's this is a VERY strong roll over bar which bolts at 4 points at the rear of the chassis and also has the added benifit of increasing shell rigidity, thus improving the cars handling. A set of high quality Magnacor competion plug leads have also been added to improve spark performance and these should last the life of the car. A new high quality Sachs clutch kit has also been recently fitted.The current owner has kept all the receipts for parts bought and fitted to the car.

Test drive
This car handles beautifully!! Ok so there's not a huge amount of power to play with but the car puts it's power down very well,the engine idles smoothly and pulls well, feeling tight with plenty of life left! These engines will run to 200,000 miles if serviced and treated well. The brakes are also extremly responsive but care has too be exercised as this car has no anti-lock in wet conditions.This car has recieved regular fully synthetic oil changes and everything has been replaced as necessary. Differential and gearbox oils have also been changed on a regular basis. No faults to report on the test drive. Overall a really nice example of this classic little roadster than needs no money spending on it for the forseable future, as all the necessary work has already been carried out. This little roadster should provide years of happy sports car motoring for the new owner. MX-5's are are very cheap to run and insure and you really can't beat them for sports car thrills on a budget!

This car is taxed and MOT'd and ready to drive away now at £3,950.00. Price also includes a full tank of petrol. Please contact it's current UK owner, James Baum on 01455 273839 or email to arrange a viewing and test drive.
