An independent site with news and information for MX-5, Miata and Roadster owners in South East England



Below are links to the best Eunos Roadster, Mazda Miata and Mazda MX-5 Websites and Forums out there on the web. The ratings are out of 5 - the forums are rated by the usefullness of the site, the parts and accessory dealers rated by their prices and if I've used them personally by their level of service.

Please Note: All opinions voiced below are mine alone and may not reflect the opinions of the MX-5 Owner's Club. I cannot accept responsibilty for any problems when following these links or using the companies.


Forums

UK MX-5 Owners Club Forums

UK MX-5 Owners Club Forums
Probably the best place to start on the web for answers to your MX-5 and Roadster questions. The forums are lively, friendly and an essential source of information and news.


Miata.Net Forums

Miata.Net Forums
These huge US forums are another superb source of information and are, mostly, as friendly as the UK site.


MX5Nutz.com Forums

MX5Nutz.com Forums
A couple of the regulars from the MX5Mods forums have set up their own, nicely designed, website. At present it's limited to the forums but these are lively and good fun. Go and take a look and join in the discussions!


MX5mods.com Forums

MX5mods.com Forums
Once THE place to go for a discussion about MX5s, these forums have gone very quiet for some reason. Recently re-designed and expanded, hopefully they'll pick up again and they're still worth a visit for the step-by-step story of the site owner's car's transformation.


Enthusiasts Sites

UK MX-5 Owners Club

UK MX-5 Owners Club
The brand new official Owners Club site is now live and, although there's still a lot missing and more than a few typos, it looks good and could grow into a great site.


The Roadster Register

The Roadster Register
This is an excellent new site aiming to be a central register of MX-5s, Roadsters and Miatas. Once you register (it's free) you can create your own 'garage' with photos and details of your car, modifications and other info. If everyone registers and enters their car's details it could evolve into a really usefull and interesting resource.

UK MX-5 Owners Club - Oxford Area
More than just an OC site, this site has pages and pages of information, hints and details of MX-5s and Roadsters.

A beautifully designed site and a very active Region - not sure they have more fun, but they certainly have a lot.


The Official Mazda MX-5 Community Site

The Official Mazda MX-5 Community Site
Featuring official Mazda news, MX-5 details, merchandise, a bulletin board and downloads this is a slickly designed and useful site.


MX5 Ireland Owners Club

MX5 Ireland Owners Club
"We are a group of people who are interested in cars, and happen to be proud owners of Mazda MX-5 / Eunos Roadsters. We get together on occasion and tinker with the cars, or just drive around the countryside. Other times we just sit in the pub, drink beer, and talk shite." - cant say fairer than that! A great site with galleries, members pages, an FAQ and much more, well worth a look..


New Zealand's MX-5 Owners Club

New Zealand's MX-5 Owners Club
An excellent site with a lot of information and advice relevant to UK owners as well as Kiwis. Includes details of the codes returned by the diagnostic connector and how to read them and downloadable versions of past issues of their club magazine - topdown.


Eunos Roadster-Mazda MX5-Miata Archive

Eunos Roadster-Mazda MX5-Miata Archive
This is where I started discovering all about the cars - packed with useful information and discussions.

This is no longer active but the archive includes superb photograph competitions, dedicated to the Mk1 pop-up headlights.

A great little site with scans of brochures and some beautiful artwork and photos..


Suppliers of Cars, Parts and Accessories

MX5 Parts

MX5 Parts
The biggest and best selection of MX-5/Roadster parts and accessories in the UK, although their prices are not always particularly good. I've always had very good service from them but I have heard that if there's a problem with an order they can be a bit disinterested. Their free full-colour catalogue is an excellent place to get ideas for mods to your car.


David Manners Group

David Manners Group
Formerly known as Shing Fung Trading, this is the first place to try for parts and service items. Mostly genuine Mazda parts or high quality aftermarket, and although gradually rising the prices are still good.


Freelance Mazda

Freelance Mazda
A local company (they're based in Gillingham, Kent) set up by ex-Mazda employee Mark Fryer. Mark is a knowledgable and friendly bloke and carries out high quality and good value work.


HotHoodsMX5.com

HotHoodsMX5.com
Offer excellent prices for new hoods - from 220 for a new black vinyl roof and zipped window, fitted!


Prestige Car Hoods

Prestige Car Hoods
Offer good quality hoods and windows, new carpet sets, seat covers and beautiful looking interior re-trim packages for MX-5s and Roadsters.


Eric's MX5 Centre

Eric's MX5 Centre
Located near Romford, Eric has always been very friendly and helpfull to me and his cars have a very good reputation. He always has a good selection of Roadsters available and is also able to source a particular model for you. The website hasn't been updated since May 2006 however so he may not still be trading...


MX5 City

MX5 City
Although I've never bought from this company I've heard many good things about them.


Moss Europe Ltd

Moss Europe Ltd
Moss offer a huge selection of parts and quality accessories but their prices are sometimes jaw-droppingly expensive and their new website design is pretty bland and uninspiring.
