On the surface the battery looks promising but the following should be considered. We have had this battery just over a year and we find that it does not hold its charge very well if the car is not used for a couple of weeks. It requires a special charger £44- £55 and takes between 5 - 7 days to recharge. Is it worth it when a normal battery charger costs about £16 and an acid battery cheaper? We did jump start the car via leads which is not supposed to damage the battery according to advice from MX5 parts, though someone mentioned that we were not supposed too, otherwise we would be stuck for a week. The only way round this is to have two of these with a charger at hand. Alternatively stick with a sealed unit which gave us no problems but then again we used the vehicle more often at that time.
