Have these on my weekend/track mx5 with eibach springs and find them really good , they are compliant on the road and once adjusted are also good on the track although there is some body roll. I do plan on upgrading for a premium coilover such as ohlin or Xida in future .

Ils remplacent avantageusement mes Bilstein B6 (avec ressorts standard) qui Útaient excellents sur routes lisses mais trop fermes partout ailleurs. CÆest plus confortable avec les AGX et la tenue de route reste bonne. Pour lÆinstant je nÆai pas vu beaucoup de diffÚrences entre le rÚglage le plus souple (1) et le plus dur (8), je suis Ó 3 devant et derriÞre mais jÆattends encore avant dÆessayer dÆautres rÚglages. En tout cas, les ralentisseurs se passent plus naturellement ! Remarque importante pour ceux qui ont une NA 1,8 avec ABS : Ó lÆavant, ils nÆont pas le crochet pour le cÔble dÆABS , mon garagiste a vÚrifier et les 2 modÞles avec/sans ABS existent en AGX. II a mis un collier colson mais il nÆest pas s¹r que le contr¶le technique approuveà

They replace my Bilstein B6 (with standard springs) which were great on perfect roads but too hard everywhere else. It's more comfortable with the AGX and the handling remains good. For the moment I haven't seen much difference between the softest setting (1) and the hardest (8), I'm steak at 3 in front and behind but I'm still waiting before trying other settings . In any case, the speed bumps happen more softly! Important note for those who have an NA 1.8 with ABS: in the front they do not have the hook for the ABS cable, my mechanic checked and the 2 models with/without ABS exist in AGX. He put on a colson collar but he is not sure that the french legal technical control approved...

Great product, It fitted with eibach pro kit on my 93 miata. It's adjustable from 1 to 8 (8 is the harder setup, 6 is well) and it seems to be a little bit softer than the bilstein ones, more "girlfiend approved / compatible". Little tip when you fit it on your car :On the front : Put one of the adjustement knobs toward the front of the car and the other backward, so when you turn the wheels you can change both left and right settings.On the rear : put the knob backward.So in seconds you can set your car from hard to soft settings, depend on the situation !

Wow! Decided to fit all round and what a difference. Took a good drive trying out all the settings. Have settled on 6 front and 4 rear - firm, but comfortable; responsiveness has been transformed and the reduction in body roll is considerable. The car sits and sticks to the road like nothing before. Have used these shocks in conjunction with the trim springs as I did not want the car to be lowered by more than 20mm, nor did i want to fuss about setting ride height. However, the 2 minutes (literally) it takes to adjust the shocks is everything I need. The dials are very easy to access and fitting was a doddle by a mechanic friend. As always, MX5P deliver a quality of service unparalleled.

Replaced standard kyb's for these at the rear, can't believe how bad the originals were upon removal, re used springs and top mounts, car handles like it should again and with the added benefit of being able to soften the ride up when carrying passengers or on long motorway journeys

Delivery Information - MX5 Parts

We understand that its really important for you to receive your goods in a timely fashion and for a competitive price. To ensure that we can deliver this we have developed a strategic partnership with both the Royal Mail and our courier partner, Think Worldwide.

At the present time, we only offer one delivery option ‘our carrier’. We will dispatch your goods with the most suitable carrier, for main land UK deliveries this is normally Royal Mail 1st class for packages weighing under 2kg and Think Worldwide for those that are over.

Our delivery charges are based on the weight of the consignment and the destination address. For UK mainland deliveries they start at £2.95 for a package weighing under 200g and rise to a MAXIMUM of £9.95 for a package weighing 2kg or over (EXCEPT very large bulky items that have an additional shipping surcharge added). The exact delivery cost will be clearly displayed at checkout.

Delivery times are estimated at 1-3 working days by Royal Mail, and 1-2 working days by Think Worldwide for mainland UK addresses. If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday, we will dispatch the same day. If you order after 3pm, we will try to dispatch the same day, but if we cant it will be the next working day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be dispatched Monday. Items dispatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be dispatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t dispatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised dispatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note, shipping times are an estimate, and can not be guaranteed. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

A signature is required for ALL orders delivered by Think Worldwide. Someone must be at your delivery address to sign for your parcel between 8am and 6pm on a working day. Please send it somewhere it can be reliably signed for, like your place of work, a neighbour, or perhaps your grans. We can (but we don’t like to) ask the courier to leave your parcel without a signature. If we do this, it will be YOUR responsibility if the parcel is lost or damaged. If you want it left, you need to give us your express instructions in the ‘additional information’ box at the end of the checkout process. It would be helpful if you could also indicate exactly where the package should be left.

If you need to change your delivery address, for any packages that have been dispatched with Think Worldwide, there will be an additional charge of £9.95 if the package has already been dispatched.

Please remember, even with Royal Mail deliveries, that any items which are too large to fit through your letter box will need someone to be available to receive the delivery. If the item cannot be delivered, you will be carded and given the option of either a re-delivery or you can collect your parcel from your local post office depot.

Orders sent to countries outside the UK will be sent VAT free, however please note that on all international shipments, the recipient is responsible for any local VAT, import duty and other clearance fees that may be charged.

Our Guarantee - MX5 Parts

We guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with mx5parts!

We are an independant, family company, run by a dedicated team. We aim to be the kind of company that we’d like to deal with if we were you. You have our absolute commitment as fellow MX-5 owners, car nuts, internet users and hard-working people that you’ll be satisfied with mx5parts. If you’re not, let us know and we’ll sort it out!

We guarantee “always fair prices”

MX5parts maintains an everyday savings pricing policy. We watch other retailers closely and maintain competitive pricing. The internet being the beast it is means that any Tom, Dick or Henrietta can set up a website in their back room and charge bargain basement/off the back of a lorry (guv) prices. Often they will have no stock, no returns policy, questionable security, no guarantees and of course poor customer service. MX5parts strives to be open and honest, so we will never inflate our prices to set up an artificial ‘sale’ (a common – and illegal – retail practice).

It is inevitable in an open market like the internet that there will be some individuals selling some items cheaper than we do, and some selling them for more than we do, just as in the high street. We take great pride in offering a fast, efficient, friendly and secure shopping experience, with great products at fair prices. We encourage our customers to shop around, but are very pleased to welcome them back again and again.

We guarantee to despatch your order when we say we will

If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday and we have your items in stock , we’ll despatch the same day . If you order after 3pm, we’ll still try to despatch that day but, if we can’t, we’ll despatch the following day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be despatched Monday. Items despatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be despatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t despatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised despatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

We guarantee to replace any goods which aren’t suitable

We guarantee to accept back any goods that you do not want, are not suitable, have changed your mind about, infact, for ANY reason, provided the goods reach us within 30 days of dispatch from us, in their original condition and packaging. Please tell us why you are returning the items, just for our records. The original purchase price of the goods will be refunded on to the card that was used for their purchase. Sorry, but we can not refund the carriage costs.

We guarantee to sort out any problem with your order

We guarantee that we will only charge your credit/switch card when your goods are dispatched

This is your right under UK law and, if we do anything else, it’s illegal!

Due to the way PayPal works, you are effectively sending the money to us rather than us asking for it so in this instance we will have received payment at the time the order was placed and not when it is ready for dispatch).

We guarantee that we won’t pass your email details on to anyone else

Absolutely not. All your details are treated as strictly confidential. We’re internet users, too, and we know how annoying unsolicited email can be. We wouldn’t risk annoying you by being the cause of it.
