Thanks Carmikey.  Someone local has a set available if one of them has snapped.

Ok, considering my options.
 
Used with unknown KM $80 or New Adjustable from MR2 Heaven Approx $320
 
Does anyone have any experience with the adjustable cables.

Just grab some from a local source.
It's not like these cables break regularly (especially on an NA)

Yep just get second hand. But have you actually checked if it is a broken cable or just a missing securing clip.
The  (C ) clips at the gearbox end of the outer cable can dislodge if not fully driven home properly.

mechanic has confirmed broken.  will need to check with him today if it is the green one.  
 
Just found out the local set are 1 green & 1 red.    Does anyone know if NA set were sometimes red?

Shaz, doesn't really matter which color band is on the cables, as long as the length is the same as the one you u are replacing.

 Baby's back home.
Was originally scheduled for next Tuesday, but I received a call around 3pm yesterday to say she was ready to go.  They'd had a couple of cancellations, so I was glad I'd been able to drop the cables to them yesterday morning. And the 1 1/2 hrs labour cost was better than I expected.  I went with the $80 used set from someone local after 4 trusted people said they should be ok.
 
Now to get used to driving her again, after driving the ADUB for 3 weeks.
Gears seem to be closer.  I guess if the cable was stretched, on it's way to snapping, that would make sense.
Going down the gears was no problem, but going into 1st from stop & up to 2nd was a bit tricky for the first 15 minute drive.  Managed to go straight from 1st to 4th, oops .   But have worked out that with a little bit of left pressure when going into 1st & 2nd, it works just fine.

Good to hear you have been reunited one again. Nice to have your own car back too I bet.
