Muzza's new 1.8 v6



  • This is a post to say hello and thanks for a great site! Have been lurking around for the past month after becoming the proud owner of a 97, black MX3, 1.8 v6 with 70k miles on the clock.

    My car previously to this was a 323f 2.0 v6 so I knew how good the engine was going to sound! I'm absolutely buzzing from the whole driving experience at the moment, almost the same as when I first got my f. I ended up with this after a week owning a saab 93 (gearbox imploded) a honda crx (93 rust bucket auto!) and then the dealer found this and I part exchanged the f (with 140k, no exhaust and a 5litre a week oil habit). It's cost me £700.00.

    She has a few dings and scrapes, but seems pretty sound. Next bits of work will be..

    MOT in June so will make sure there are some funds for that.

    Possible wheel bearing

    would like to get it lowered slightly so some cheap (ish) springs


    First job was the powerflow back box. The old one was shredded and a replacement was 130ish for standard and 160 for stainless. No choice really and sounds lovely, if a little loud for my taste sometimes.


    The back shelf had snapped in half and the standard speakers had rips and tears. Made a new shelf from MDF and bought 2xInfinity 6x9 from fleabay for a tenner and


    This little puppy for .99p!! I love listening to new music in the car, so these were key bits to get fitted. I am chuffed to bits with the sound quality.
