Three miles not worth your time and effort

The instructor might not brake if you didn't buy the waiver.

Great deal for all the hairdressers out there.

Just go to a dealer and test drive one.

3 miles in a hairdressers car?!

Kind of misleading since if you're buying this for a "junior driver" as it is intended, or anyone who's never driven a car like this before or who has never driven on a race track before, you're going to be paying the extra £25.

Just go to a dealer and test drive one.

I don't get it? Why a hair dresser?

It’s a great Xmas present for teenagers who are hard to buy for

Use code Black25 takes it down to £14.25 each. 3 miles is a good distance for kids trying driving for the first time in a car that kids likely to think as cool. Stocking filler that doesnt end up shoved in a cupboard! Heat.

fancy doing this myself; buy 3 and if get 9 miles would be good....

Can code be used on anything else?

I know this is probably aimed at kids, but you'll get better value taking them to the go kart circuit. It'll be more fun and they'll learn more than 3 miles in second gear

Not an S2000 though is it

Standing 'joke' that the MX-5 is a hairdressers/girls car, usually perpetuated by people who have never owned/driven one and don't know what they are missing. Girls have the best cars anyway... 😋

I think you'll find that MX-5 is an acronym for mobile hairdresser:
M - Mobile
X - Looks like a pair of hair cutting scissors
5 - £5 for a short back and sides

Brake markers are for wimps... Just don't lock up

I bought this for my little girl, 11th birthday pressie and a couple of friends, they absolutely loved it, and she got up to 90 mph driving around the little track, was definitely worth seeing the smile on their faces, tho worked out expensive for us as stupidly bought the waiver insurance, which I wouldn’t buy again 😊

My current car is faster.

Someone hasn't been to a hairdresser for a while. Sure you're not visiting the butchers?

Congratulations.
Do you track it?

My boy isn't 10 until April, but the voucher is valid for 10 Months, so I may just get this for his birthday, thanks OP

I know it's optional, but what if the car gets trashed and you didn't get the insurance?

I always thought Beetles and TTs were hairdressers cars. Never associated an MX5 with that profession

Bought this for my 13 year old nephew. Thanks OP

I already have a Mk1 MX5 and drive it like a race car though?!

With the 3 miles, can you at least rag it, or will it be driving around a car park slowly around cones?

Did one of these for our lad earlier this year in a jag. They sprung the insurance on us when we signed in......I just turned to our lad and said casually " it's £25 extra if you want to smash it up", our lad replied "cool, let's do it"!
The young ladies face on check in was priceless and all she could say was "I doubt you will need it as no ones damaged one yet"

You can get up to 90mph as another poster's 11 year old managed... Allegedly.

Does anyone know a good alternative with a better car for around £50? I live on Hampshire area thanks

The cars are insured, but you'd have to pay the excess, which could be something around £500-£1000. Paying the waiver would mean you wouldn't have to pay that excess. At least that's how it works on hire cars.

Bit of a joke though shouldn’t the instructor be liable not the kid! When you have your driving lessons you don’t pay a waiver.

Yeah, it's mostly BS, it's how a lot of hire car companies make most of their money, by scaring you into buying a whole host of add-ons that no one needs, like how insurance companies try to get you do buy legal cover and breakdown assistance. If you do want that stuff, there's always third party insurers who'll sell you damage waivers for a less.
