Learn from the mistake of the yellow 250 on eBay. Keep it simple and subtle and you will appeal to many more buyers when you eventually come to sell it.

Dash is a bit dodgy, just a cover over the original BMW instruments. Back looks as if it is bonded on, not a good idea in case the fuel filler (bit of a weak point) or anything else needs repairing....

There are 2 very nice 250's on eBay at the moment, 39k and 48k. There is also a very nice Kobra for 12k.
Does that help your decision?

Great picture but the "M" reg was a big let down.
Well worth paying for a dateless (not Irish) plate, I'm sure it will increase the sale price.

Better to go for a 250swb on a BMW z3, easier build and all bolt on. Much better donor car as well. Old MX5's can be a bit rusty, BMW last much better and have a better engine. Tribute will ship to...

Does anyone remember what forms need sending off to the DVLA to notify them of the change of body style for a Z3/Tribute?
