Two springs cracked after 4 years outdoor use in UK. Replacement set for 170eur when the 50eur shipping is added on is a bit irritating. Should have taken them off and rust treated them after noticing the paint flaking off after 1-2yrs.

Replaced the old and worn out suspension and springs with the coil overs. Very good value for money. Note, when fitting the rears the lower mount is slightly off-centre for the following reason; if you fit them the wrong way the tightening bolts will hit the drive shafts. So ensure you twist the bottom of the shocks the correct way to avoid this.

Decent value. Rear shocks are offset to avoid the collars hitting the halfshafts. Not mentioned in instructions!!!!

Spent Saturday putting these on my '91 Eunos. Fitting is relatively straightforward (although getting the old springs and shocks out is an absolute pig of a job...)The transformation is amazing...handling is excellent and the ride is much more supple and controlled, without the crashiness of the old setup.Great value too compared with standard springs and shocks so for anyone looking to cheer up an older car, I don't know any reason not to buy these.

Good coilovers for the money, not amazing, but look at the price!Don't buy them if your expecting a smooth and forgiving ride like you get from Meisters or BC racing coils, these Vmaxxs' are stiff but I bought them to be fitted to an MX5 that gets tracked fairly often so they were perfect for me. Would suggest the Vmaxxs' with adjustable dampening if you just want to cruise round some B roads in the summer.They aren't dangerously bouncy like TA techys and will keep your 5 rubber side down in the turns whilst providing plenty of stability and steering feel, they give you confidence in the turns.I'm very satisfied with how they perform for the amount they cost, greatly improved how my car handles, would recommend for people on a budget.

Very high quality and very well made. I'm pretty much a novice mechanic and managed to fit these without too much difficulty at home with my teenage son (using a few youtube guides etc). Was a good day or so's work for us. We have a P reg Mk1 with 63k on the clock. All the springs were original and the front shocks were original. Ride height was a very high 370mm. These coilovers got us down to 300mm at first fit, and we moved back up to 325mm front/335mm back which looks great and rides very well indeed. To drive, the car is transformed....feels 'new'. Would highly recommend these coilovers.

fitted these to my 92 mx5 and for the price they are so worth it (would recommend getting a full polly bush set and do them at the same time) i found for me a good setting is about 2 inches from the bottom of the thread but thats me, did notice that if you wanted it real low the adjusting nuts catch the drive shafts, they have made a surprising amount of difference and the ride comfort hasn't really changed but you can feel the car stays alot flatter through the corners

I bought and fitted this suspension to a 97 NA, it has improved the handling of the car dramatically and the car still rides fairly well, however it is firmer than stock. I think I have the car too low at the rear as it does bounce a little at speed, which is a little unnerving. I shall experiment with the height before getting the geometry realigned. For £350 I think this suspension is great value for money if you want a fast road car! I haven't been on the track yet but it feels like it will be a bit soft.

After breaking a spring on the short journey to MOT, I wanted to improve the suspension on my Kreg Eunos 1.6. I have owned this car for many years and the handling has always been tired. Dont buy new boots with this kit as they are not required. Measure the wheelarch height before starting the job to give a reference. Rears are straight forward, use spring compressors to shorten the spring before withdrawing the old unit from the car.The trick with the front pair is to undo the drop link (get some new bolts- mine were in a terrible state), use the skinny spare wheel bolted on to the hub backwards - then you can use a knee to press down and keep both hands free to wrestle with the shocker. Loosely fit the top cap to the turret - not to the coilover - and with the spring height setting at the lowest, it is possible to persuade the new strut, with both main and keeper spring, to get in to place. I spent many hours trying to find how to fit the front pair when assembled normally, and this trick will save a lot of swearing!.I set the ride height to be pretty much the same as before, rear adjustment near the top, front a little above half way.Now bedded in with 600 miles on mainly B roads and country lanes, I am most impressed. The ride is firmer, but not jarring or crashing, and I have not noticed bump stops even over sleeping policemen. The main difference is in cornering, with no other modifications, the wallowing, slightly frightening tendency to oversteer has gone, and I am really enjoying the drive. I recommend this kit as good value - I just wish I had done it years ago.

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.

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.

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 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.
