    I got an mx5 a few weeks ago and have noticed the steering is ridiculously light at around 65-70, to the point of feeling un-safe. I have heard a common cause for this is the suspension geometry being out of wack. Can anyone recommend a place in south London that will do a good job of setting the car up and not cost the earth?

    I am in the Blackheath/Greenwich area, so a decent place around there would be great. Cheers!

    Cheers for that! Looks like they do a factory setup for about £110 with a free check before hand. Yeah a bit pricey, so other recommendations welcome.

    Were you pleased with your setup?

    Just a pointer - make sure either your adjustment bolts are in good condition or you take some spares as mine were basically rusted into the arms :s
