Anyone after some bits? MX-3 going for scrap…



  • Alright lads. My Dad is finished with my old MX-3 and she's going to the car graveyard in the sky. I'd love to put the time into it and put it back on the road but can't afford it with a big project on the go for my MG and saving for a Porsche 924 for my 20th in a few months. Sad but such is life.

    Some pics from better times…

    That's pretty much as it is now. Only with 5-spoke V6 alloys.

    If you need any parts then let me know, prices are cheap and the car will only be around for a few more days. Speak now or forever hold your peace :P



  • what's the condition of the driver side door like?



  • What has to be done to get her on the road, Ryan?



  • And are the boot struts good? Might also need a steering rack if you're bothered to take it out :p



  • Marco, the paintwork isn't great and there's a few dents. The leading edge of the door is also kinked in slightly from when somebody tapped it off a wall or another car.

    Jay, mechanically she wouldn't need too much to pass the test. The bodywork is awful though, to get it sorted properly I was getting quotes of ~2200+ :( I'll double check on the boot struts and get back to you but I remember them being perfect, sadly the steering rack is a no go as it's getting driven to the scrappy :lol:



  • Haha, fair enough. I can call down over the weekend to get them off ya if they're in good nic!

    2200+ seems fairly expensive! A buddy of mine said he'd sort out the dents and respray mine for <1000. By the sounds of it though, yours might end up being mostly filler and with the prices of 3's over here yad probably be better off buying a new one anyway!



  • So nobody wants anything then? All the interior trim and plastics are pretty much mint.

    By tomorrow afternoon she'll be a nice square cube so if you want anything let me know asap.



  • instrument cluster looks low mileage, I would be very interested in that definately

    How much for that ???

    also, why doesnt Jayom meet you at the scrappy and get the steering rack off outside :wink:



  • Yep, 68k miles or therabouts! Cheapest on eBay is £33, so half of that seems fair. £16.50 + p&p (which shouldn't be more than £6 or so).

    Is there a how-to guide on how to take it out?



  • Am looking for Driver's Side Air Vent… And the rear "door cards"

    What's yours like?

    Cheers

    Hammy



  • Yep drivers side air vent is perfect, I'll double check in a few mins. Have you got a pic of the rear door card thingies? Not sure which ones you mean, but if they're big postage will be a bitch sadly.

    Airvent will do fine buddy… the "door cards" are pretty hefty... How much ya lookin for the airvent?



  • How does £6.50 posted sound to you? Could've done it cheaper but postage from here will cost me £3/4.

    Also, any idea on how to take it out? :lol:



  • :lol: I don't actually… never tried... Don't think it's screwed in, just clips in (I'm guessing)



  • ryan, to get a few quid more back off the car, take all the switches out the dashboard, they normally do £25 + p&p on fleabay and usually sell very fast



  • :( Farewell little car…

    It's off to china now as a square cube. I had a quick drive of it earlier and and remembered how good a car they are to drive, was really sad to see it go truth be told.

    Hammy & DJ; I'll PM you guys tomorrow or monday about the parts, they're off the car and I'll wrap them ready for postage tonight.



  • :(
