I've never had this problem in my MX-5, but I have had it in other cars and every time it was the alternator. The battery lights would flicker or dim slightly every now and again. The car started fine every time, but the alternator wasn't charging the battery properly or constantly like it should. So while it was still charging enough to keep starting the car, it was just a matter of time before the alternator died completely, in fact the last time I had this happen the car died on my way to the garage to have it looked at. That stunk!
I hope it all works out for you. Let us know what it was in the end!
Good Luck, I hope it's nothing or something cheap and simple!
