The Mazda Eunos Roadster was the Japanese market version of the superb MX5 which was introduced in 1989. This Mk1 Eunos was manufactured until 1998 and is widely regarded as the finest 2 seat sports car ever to be put into production. The MX5 is still made today with total sales nearing the 1 million mark – remarkable for a sports car.
The Mk1 version of the Mazda Eunos was generally regarded to be the superior car to the UK MX5 version and consequently many were imported from Japan as grey imports. We were one of the very first brokers to offer Mazda Eunos insurance and continue to do so today, especially as so many of these cars have been kept in excellent condition and in some cases qualify for classic japanese car insurance.
The biggest difference between the MX5 and the imported Eunos is the limited slip differential which made a huge difference to the handling, and with such a light and nimble car, made the Eunos Roadster the one to have – certainly with regard to the earlier models. We at Keith Michaels are extremely well known for providing japanese import car insurance and would love the opportunity to quote for the Eunos.
These cars are now becoming old enough to qualify for Classic and Cherished car insurance. We are keen to offer this cover but it is on a strict basis as we only want to insure those ‘special’ cars on this scheme. Example requirements are as follows:
‘Cars must be aged 20 years or older’
‘An agreed value is given so photo evidence of the car’s condition is required’
‘Annual mileage is limited’
‘You must have another “main use” vehicle’.
This scheme is aimed at those Eunos owners who keep their car in excellent condition and only really venture out on special days. We are looking to cover the enthusiast driver, especially those who are members of clubs. Please ask for our Mazda Eunos Classic Car insurance.

Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
