Thank you MX5 Parts!
Just as I was begining to lose faith in the old girl I happened to read some reviews, which convinced me that my 99 10th Anniversary needed a new coil pack. It would always misfire after being left to cool down-popping to the shops she'd misbehave on the way home, sometimes even failing to start altogether. You'd think that my 'Mazda Approved' warranty would cover the part but my local main dealer couldn't (wouldn't??) diagnose the fault.
OK, so I'm £160 lighter, and a few skinned knuckles, but boy oh boy was it worth it. The car starts first time every time, idles beautifully, and three weeks after fitting she still hasn't misbehaved. Fitting the part took about 45 minutes and a 12mm spanner/socket.
If you have a 99 1.8, approaching 60,000 miles then you've GOT TO consider changing the coil pack. If you're thinking of buying an MX5 of this age/mileage haggle to have the part fitted.
A big thanks to everyone who has posted reviews on this part.
Brilliant service from MX5 Parts-as always.
