I had a 2004 MSM before (and was the first who imported one into The Netherlands). That engine could not handle the combination if hard cornering, higher turbo pressure and a relatively faulty standard oil vapour ventiliation system...so it ended up eating most of it's oil.
I rebuild it with forged pistons and other rods and tuned stock turbo and read 270 hp and relatively large torque numbers, but I sold that one.

Now was looking for a even better step. A LS3 MX-5 is to expensive yet, so I found this car again in Ebay which I saw adverticed before about a year ago on this forum.

It will take about 4 weeks before it arrives here and I will surely have to some work to get a licenseplate on like put a cat on it, change the lighting etc. It is amazing to read here it took so much trouble to seel the car. I really hope I bought a 'big grin' package.

Hi Wouter,

Actually I have not seen the car yet as I left for China for 3 months about the same the car arrived in The Netherlands.
I will be back early April and than do the work to get the car through the trouble of putting a Dutch approved licenseplate on it (lightning, emission etc) and it will than drive in the neighbourhood of Zwolle :-)
