Some people have pointed out that the straps stretch; when this happens, I just tie a knot. Eventually, the straps will tear and the cover will either rip right down the centre (the left and right sides literally came apart in a storm) or it will lose its waterproofing, but it's still a good cover because it is quick and easy to put on and take off - especially when it's too cold and wet to spend time fiddling about. It flies up off the car like a kite in high winds, but this has the effect of giving your car a blow-dry and my mohair roof is as good as new after three years of using these covers. Tip: Just make sure, when you're removing it, to fold it the same way so you won't be standing around in the rain trying to figure out which is the front or back. I keep the "ears" (wing-mirror covers) and front strap folded together, then roll the rest of the cover, wrap the back strap around it and stuff it into its carrier bag with the size tag showing. I have just realised my spare cover is no longer waterproof so I'm buying another one.

These covers aren’t really suitable for outdoor use. The elastic goes slack within a few months and after a year the fabric starts tearing. We're on our third in six years and it would have failed completely if not for except for repairs with a sewing machine. Also had to reproofed it.

Great Service and support from the team, I phoned for some advice as to which Cover, decided on the Half cover, its working great. We Have had some days of heavy rain, keeping the roof and more dry, no codensation at all so far. Fitting is very simple and it comes in a handy plastic zipped bag. Its a good thing to also keep in the boot when going away on trips.. Very pleased

I've found that this is no better than the other two or three very similar products on the market. The elastic straps stretch quickly and the material rips easily. These covers are little use in the wind and last 2 to 3 years at most. After wearing out three of these types of cover I've now decided it is cheaper, easier and more effective to clean and reproof the soft top on a regular basis.

A premium price for a not so premium product.Surprised at how thin it was,and the elastic straps do not seem very substantial.Description says "A snug fit on Mk3 models".I did not find that at all,seems big in fact,certainly nothing like the fit in the picture on the website.Time will tell how well it lasts.

This will keep the bird muck and cat paws off it and its really easy to fit. It simply isn't waterproof and the condensation builds up inside.

I bought one of these about 2 years ago, it was fine and did the job which was to keep cats from ruining the soft top. Over time the elastic securing tapes became stretched but I knotted it to shorten it. Over the 2 years the material has deteriorated and finally the storm this weekend has ripped it in half. I am now going to buy a replacement one, because it is cheaper than having to buy cleaning kits and restorative fluid for the hood every 6 months or so.

Purchased Jan 14 and elastic straps had stretched excessively within 12 months - stitched section together so it remained effective. As of Nov 15 the cover has torn completely so I will replace with a full cover which covers the bottom of the doors, as I park on a slight camber and water can enter through the bottom of the door - check this out if you are blaming your hoods for wet carpets!

Following on from my previous review I have idea purchased a new cover. What a disappointment. Although it's marked up as XS I'm sure it's a at least a jumbo. The straps needed shortening from new at the thing still looks like a barrage balloon in the slightest wind. The old one was a tight fit when new, but this one??? Looser than a very big thingy over a tiny little thingy. If the birds hadn't poohed all over it I'd send it back. Not recommended this time.

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!

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 full warranty support on all items

Just contact us if you have a warranty problem. All goods supplied by mx5parts are from official sources and are covered by the normal manufacturers warranty.

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!

(Please note: This doesn’t apply however if you have chosen to pay via PayPal. 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.
