Bit the bullet and bought a hardtop 300 and it was local, off an 03 MK2.5 Mx 5, fits fine with adjustment but heated screen does not plug straight in found a solution but was expensive after research my car a 93 Mk 1 Eunos has the wiring in place bought a relay for 6.50 (plugs in near battery in boot fuses in place as it had an electric areal) dash switch 40 (ouch!) but will plug straight in just need to rewire the top to the car as plugs are different.

DVLA I will need to get back to them.

In the mean time changed the Nardi wheel centre for one from these guys www.bellavolante.co.uk fitted with a bit of fettling also Toyota key of ebay cut to fit for 2 he had to cut it backwards as its slightly shorter than the Mazda blank, works fine though.
