I have researched the Miata line for 4 years; waited for the Mazdaspeed to come out.When it finally did the only dealership available was an hour and a half away. Decided to wait for the 2006. I went to the dealership, drove both and the body styling of the 2005 and the MX-5 Mazdaspeed won hands down. Handling, power, every aspect of a true roadster, reminded me of my Spitfire but with a lot more power and comfort. Beats my '84 300zx turbo hands down. Want a sport car, a true one, buy the MX- 5 MazdaSpeed. It's a sport car not a luxury car.
Power punch of the turbo, auto volume increase is great, the whole car.
Little deeper trunk, battery in the front but they did that in '05.
