2006 BBR Mazdaspeed MX5 2.0 Sport
Well maintained and in perfect condition throughout, with a
full and comprehensive service history, low mileage, and a highly desirable
This lovely MX5 benefits from an additional £5000 worth of
sensible upgrades over and above the standard Sport specification ( six speed manual gearbox, Torsen
limited slip differential, traction and stability control) consisting
of the well proven BBR Super 175 performance upgrade (custom stainless steel
exhaust manifold and ECU re-map, upping power to 180bhp) resulting in increased
flexibility and torque throughout the rev range, with a more free revving
engine and notably quicker acceleration, whilst retaining perfect manners at
slow speeds and in town driving.
The standard shock absorbers and springs have been replaced
with top quality Ohlins MAS M130 fully
adjustable units, allowing both ride height and firmness to be altered independently
as desired. Far superior to the original suspension, this set-up allows for
both comfort and responsive handling, set at a sensible height that is practical
for everyday use, while offering a more purposeful stance and enhanced
roadholding. Current retail price for this suspension set-up is £1800,
A set of diamond cut, gloss black 17” alloy wheels shod with
premium Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres complement the overall look.
The standard rear silencer and exhaust have been replaced
with a top-of-the-range Borla stainless steel unit which sounds absolutely
lovely; nice and sporty, occasional pops on the overrun, without any of the
droning common to some aftermarket exhausts; brakes upgraded with EBC slotted
discs and pads; and the standard, heavy steel strut brace replaced with a
lightweight, polished alloy replacement by Beatrush.
having these upgrades fitted, the car has covered around twenty thousand
trouble free miles without issue. BBR are renowned for their tuning work with
Mazda MX5’s, and this is a well proven and reliable set-up which, whilst
improving the overall performance of the car, is still entirely suitable for
everyday use, building on the existing platform to make for a thoroughly
entertaining and enjoyable drive. The car has only seen road use, and has not
taken part in any trackdays nor any other form of motorsport.

body kit, consisting of colour-coded front bumper & air dam, side skirts,
rear bumper & diffuser, and bootlip spoiler. The whole package gives the car
a more focused, performance orientated look that really sets it apart from

I trade exclusively in Mazda MX-5's,
having been quietly working away in the classic vehicle business for many years
now. Many of my sales are via word of mouth, and I always purchase my vehicles
directly from their original owners in order to get a feel for how any given
car has been kept. Each car is carefully and thoroughly checked over and
extensively road tested to ensure there are no hidden issues, before being
refreshed, serviced as required, and finally valeted prior to resale.

from my premises here in the Scottish Borders, with the nearest station being
