I didn't buy the shocks from MX5Parts but instead from a supplier in Sweden but I'd still like to write a review. I bought the boots from MX5Parts, they arrived to Sweden 2 days from ordering and I'm very satisfied with the service I got from them.
About the shocks - I strongly recommend them!! I already had lowering springs on the car (Flyin' Miata or "Lesjöfors"-springs) which lowered the car about 30 mm. With the Koni's set in the top position I hardly noticed a difference in ride height (maybe 5 mm lower?) but what a difference in handling!!!
My old shocks were completely worn out, I have a roundabout with a bump in the middle of the turn and at about 80 kmh through the roundabout I would almost lose control over the car as the rear would bounce up and down and almost lose contact with the tarmac. No more of that - riding the same road the car NEVER loses contact with the ground, NEVER bounces up and down after bumps and feels much much smoother at all speeds. I have set the front shocks 2 turns and the rear shocks about 1 turn - having the rear shocks softer than the front makes the car handle much better. For drifting, I just set the rear stiffness to max. :-)
So all in all - an investment worth every penny / cent / öre!!!
