    This comes with a bit of a heavy heart but it's time to put the Roadster up for sale. I'd love to keep it but I need a daily for work and also just something more practical but can't afford to keep two cars. I'm also taking a step back from drifting for a bit as I want to focus on photography again and need some funds to go towards a new camera. Anyway here's a little about the car.

    2002 Mazda MX5 Phoenix Edition (1200 made)
    1.8 VVT
    95,750 miles - This will go up a little as I use the car a few times a week.
    MOT till July 2017
    Last year the car had the rear sills replaced and painted professionally by Tolpits Bodyshop who are a Mazda dealer specialist.
    Timing belt and auxiliary belts have been replaced last year too.
    It's just had a fresh alignment and wheel balance by Garage-D also as well as a recent engine, gearbox, and LSD oil change.
    Oh, and new front tyres!

    The car has quite a few upgrades over the past three years I've had it, here's a few important ones:

    HSD Monopro coilovers
    Cusco RS 2-way LSD
    Competition Clutch Stage 2
    RPC 5.3kg lightweight flywheel
    Superstyle rack spacers for increased steering angle
    SuperPro Polybushed arms with eccentric camber bushes
    SuperPro differential void mount fillers
    Racing Beat rear ARB with polybush mounts
    Mazda SVT sport brake calipers
    Jetex 2.5" exhaust system
    Sump guard
    Driftworks SuperCool radiator
    Sparco Evo bucket seat
    JB Fab seat side mounts
    340mm perforated leather Nardi Classic
    JASS handbrake button
    Aluminium custom gearknob
    10AE Roadster dials
    JDM Roadster kickplates
    JDM Roadster chequer mats
    Genuine Buddyclub P1 Racing wheels
    Nangkang NS2 195/50/15
    OEM Mazda hardtop
    JASS hardtop side mounts
    Touge Run Vary style front lip
    Demon Motorsport front canards
    Bomex sideskirts
    Headlight strobes

    I've probably missed a few bits. I also have a large collection of history for parts and work carried out on the car too.

    The only real downsides to the car in my eyes is that the paintwork isn't in the greatest condition. The hardtop is painted in a Lotus silver paint. I never got around to colour matching it but it doesn't look too far off and I was planning to re-spray the car someday. The front bumper has seen better days and there's a few dings and battle scars here and there in general, but it always super shiny and looking all sick in photos and that's all that matters right?

    The boot release inside the car doesn't work as one day I was lifting a tyre out of it boot, heard a ping, and something had fallen off the mechanism never to be found again. A replacement actuator thingy can be found for around £30, it was just very low down on the priority list and got used to just opening it manually with the key.

    There's probably a few other bits but honestly just message me if you have any questions.

    I've put a lot of time and effort into this car and it's incredibly capable when driven hard. It's taken me all over the place every day, it's been driven to drift days, drifted all day and driven home on one tank of fuel and a pair of tyres, all while being faultlessly reliable.

    I'm looking for around £3500 but I'm open to offers, or maybe even a part exchange with something bigger that I can put stuff in and on.
