Truce! ...How about pistols at dawn? Lol, is calling you a chav at your age bad or good? ...could mean 'you are down with the kids!'

As you say, opinions are what make the world a interesting place to be. Read this all the time on forums;

'Opinions are like Ar@eholes, everyone has one!'

You seem a good bloke as well. Look forward to maybe meeting you sometime. Anyway, enough of the male bonding.

Lets get back on topic....

So MX5 is a womens car then....kidding!  ;D

1/. Pistols at dawn? At my age the only thing I do at dawn is get out of bed for a pee.
2/. Chav, good or bad? Quite right ! not sure. I assumed it meant I was a cap wearing low life with acne and a girlfriend called Chardonnay. Actually I am a cap wearing (occasionally) old git with liver spots and wife called ? (Alzheimers)
3/. Male bonding. Is that when I spill superglue on my fingers and then go for a pee?

So about the MX5 it is a womans and a mans car!

Now where is my grumpy old git calender and diary, I am sure I was supposed to be doing something more interesting than this!!!!!!!

After some searching of various cars, I've decided I need a car with a soul again, so I will be getting an MX-5 at sometime. I'm just wondering if to get a mark 2.5 or an early mark 3? I'm siding more to the mark 3, although the misses says "we need something practical", so it's an uphill battle (the mark 3 has a bigger boot, lol)! Maybe getting a cheaper 2.5 and a crappy runaround is an option?

We have owned an MX5 before and I loved it. handled like it was on rails. Ours was the wifes car and I had a bigger car for practical stuff.

I personally dont buy the womans car tag to be honest.

Stick some pics up if you get one.
