Previously my 15 year old Mk 1 car was very noisy inside with interior rattles and bangs and crashes when going over rough surfaces. Handling was not great and I was thinking of selling my old 5 for a newer "tighter" one. I was convinced the tracking on the car was out by some margin as it didn't feel like the knockout sports car it has the reputation for, it just looked better than it drove!
MX5 parts strongly recommended these, and after reading a few reviews on the internet, decided to buy the full set (front, back and anti-roll Poly bushes) the car still had the original ones which were split and fatigued. Yes they are very expensive but I can honestly say the car is transformed and they come with a lifetime guarantee. There is 90% less noise coming through and the handling now blows me away. Turn in is much sharper and the car now corners much flatter like its on rails. Braking has also improved dramatically. I now use this car everyday for work as it is so much fun to drive!! These are a big improvement over the standard bushes which a friend uses.
I'm not a mechanic but paid £60 to have these fitted as it is a fairly big job. Very, very happy.... Cheers MX5 parts =0)
