In September 2008 I purchased a second hand MX5 which had had this system fitted to it in December 2007 with a mileage of 65,000 in order for it to get it through it's MOT. I have the original invoice from mx5 parts. A new coil pack had also been fitted to the car in March 2007.
The readings for the MOT at Dec 2007 where.
At the cars next MOT December 2008 with a mileage of 70,000 the readings where
At the cars next MOT December 2009 with a mileage of 76,000
I don't have the read outs here but the car only just went through the MOT and I was told it would need replacing before the next MOT.
This means it really only lasted just over 2 years where the original had lasted 9 years.
I have just had the car MOT done and it did indeed fail as expected, I didn't fancy shelling out another £500 so the garage got me a cat made and cut it into the old system.
Results are as follows
