MX5 Racing Jacket

Ever since I got my MX5 I had been looking for a pit lane jacket but I was unable to find anything in the UK and was concerned about buying from overseas. However, desire got the better of me when I found this jacket on a Thailand website at a very reasonable price. With my heart in my mouth I hit the “buy” button and waited in some trepidation.

An astonishing five days later it arrived and I was delighted!  This is a lovely mid-weight jacket with a silk and cotton outer and a satin lining. All the logos are embroidered directly onto the coat and the whole thing is superbly hand finished.

I was a bit concerned about sizing but again unnecessarily, just follow the online measuring guide and you will be fine. I am normally a UK medium but came out as a large size on their guide and it fits perfectly. You really cannot go wrong with this jacket, click on the photos above to visit the “Mega Thailand” MX5 page, place your order and look cool with the roof down!

The company also makes jackets for a wide range of other cars so click on their logo below to see the full MX5 product range and what else is on offer:

This really is the ultimate boot rack for the MX5.

No drilling, the rack is secured with clamps front and rear and is fully removable. Available for Mk1 and Mk2/2.5 models.

Spring is just around the corner so click on the logo to visit the MX5 Parts website, grab yourself one of these beautifully made boot racks and be ready to head for the sun.

Cap This!

Chrome Cap

I have no connection with MX5 Parts other than having used them frequently and found their service first class, but when I saw that the last few of these beautiful filler caps had been obtained by the company  I just had to pass it on. These Genuine Mazda chrome fuel filler lids are made to the highest quality and are by far one of the easiest accessories to fit, even utilising the original opening mechanism. Totally transforming the exterior of your car, these really are the “must have” exterior accessory for any Mk2 or Mk2.5 owner.

I think this is the most desirable bit of bling for your five, I only wish the offer extended to the later models. Go on, get yourself one for Christmas by clicking on  the photo above.

Its in the Bag

The Boot-bag in Action In France

Mazda make a beautiful boot lid carrier and case for your extra holiday luggage but even on special offer it costs an eye-watering £464.18! To spend this sum on an item you use once or twice a year seems somewhat extravagant to say the least, but fortunately a small company has come up with a clever, practical alternative at an affordable price.

Boot-bag.com have designed a  luggage bag that attaches to your MX5’s boot lid using a unique strapping system. The bag is waterproof and sits on a non slip mat to protect your paintwork. The straps won’t damage the edge of the boot-lid like a luggage rack and the whole thing is fitted and removed in minutes:

The Boot-bag is available in different sizes and will fit most convertibles. At only £79.95 including delivery I think it represents outstanding value for money. To visit their website just click on the Logo:
